WHY YOU NEED solar + batteries
Example 1: You only have solar panels
When the sun is shining, your house is powered by solar which is only great if you’re home to use it. But, if you’re at work for most of the day the power is getting sent straight back the grid – you’re not using it and you have no place to store it. In return, the grid will provide you with a credit called the ‘solar feed in tariff’.
But, typical of the big energy companies, this rate has been dramatically slashed over the years and
it is not going to be around forever.
Example 2: You have solar panels with a battery
When you add a battery to your system, your solar power generated during the day is stored and waiting for you when you get home. Turn the aircon on, run the dishwasher – you’ve got a battery full of power waiting to be used! Don’t wait to install your battery now when you will only have to do it later.
