Many people are in favour of solar power systems due to the abundantly endless supply of electricity solar can provide to a home. People often overlook the benefits that solar batteries can provide in addition to a solar power system. Solar power is completely clean, it produces no air pollution, no water pollution, and no greenhouse gas effects. It is also carbon-free, no harmful emissions are released when electricity is being produced by solar panels. It also reduces the need for finite resources.
A solar battery is a battery that stores energy from a solar PV system. The system’s panels absorb energy from the sun and convert it to electricity which then passes through the inverter for your home to use. A battery is an additional component that can allow you to store energy produced from your panels and use the energy at a later time, such as in the evening when your panels are no longer producing energy.
Solar batteries can be used in conjunction with solar power systems. Pairing your solar power system with a solar battery can make a significant difference in creating renewable energy. Although the price for a solar battery is understandably higher, the benefits provided by a solar battery when paired with a solar power system make up for its higher price in its high returns it can give.
Solar batteries are used to store solar energy (solar electricity) and discharge power as and when needed. Rechargeable solar batteries are used in off-grid solar PV systems to store excess electricity. Some solar battery banks use wet cells, while others use sealed or gel cell batteries.
Here are some of the many benefits you can enjoy by installing a solar battery storage with your solar power system-
Reduce your Carbon Footprint with a solar battery
Solar power systems are responsible for not only producing electrical energy but are producing clean energy at the same time. This means that the process of producing energy does not pollute the environment. There are no harmful emissions or by-products that could cause further harm to the environment or the ecosystem. Solar storage batteries are environmentally friendly and free of emissions. For this reason, going green with solar power systems and solar batteries is highly favoured to help the environment and reduce your carbon footprint.
Save Excess Energy
When you install a solar power system on your roof, the solar panels may end up producing more energy than you use for your own consumption. In many areas, you can benefit by selling this excess energy back to the grid for credit. However, sometimes, the feed in tariff rates are not that favourable which means all the extra power your system produces would all end up going to waste. While some people might be able to sell it back to the grid, a wiser idea is to get a solar battery and have it store the energy you produce for your own consumption. With these solar batteries, you can easily ensure that your home is powered all times of the day.
Ready power during blackouts or power outages
Often times, emergencies, either man-made or natural, can cause a blackout. This deprives you of power for a few hours and in some situations, even days or weeks. In such instances, your solar batteries come in very handy in providing you with the energy to make it through trying times. A single solar power battery lets you survive on a day-to-day basis.
Save money with solar battery storage
Solar power systems and solar batteries allow you to save money. Keep in mind that these savings are relevant in the long-term. If you’re looking for a short-term solution, you might not be too enthused with a solar power system since it can be costly to purchase and install. On the other hand, if you’re willing to consider it as an investment, you can expect to see big savings.
Solar power batteries are quickly becoming one of the best additions to a solar power system for your home. As research keeps on improving, these batteries will continue to evolve to provide all the benefits mentioned above. It’s high time to get a solar power system in your home.
