When installing Solar PV deciding if you require a battery can be a tricky decision. Here are some of the key resons why batter installation may benefit you!
It is recommended to install a battery with solar panels for several reasons:
Energy storage: A battery allows you to store excess energy generated by your solar panels during the day for use at night or during times when the sun is not shining. This means you can rely less on the power grid and further increase your energy independence.
Grid independence: A battery allows you to disconnect from the power grid entirely, giving you complete independence from utility companies and increasing your energy security in case of power outages or emergencies.
Cost savings: By storing excess energy in a battery, you can reduce your reliance on the power grid and avoid peak-hour electricity prices, saving you money on your energy bills.
Environmental benefits: By using energy stored in a battery instead of drawing from the power grid, you can further reduce your carbon footprint and reliance on non-renewable energy sources.
Better control over energy use: With a battery, you can manage and control how much energy you use and when, allowing you to optimize your energy consumption and maximize your savings.
Overall, a battery provides a range of benefits when combined with solar panels, from increased energy independence and security to cost savings and environmental sustainability. However, whether or not a battery is necessary or practical will depend on your energy needs and usage patterns, as well as your budget and other factors.
