    Renewable Energy

    Start taking control of your power by storing the sun’s free energy for when you need it most. Solar panel batteries store excess solar power from production during the day, and keeps it for use at night. A house battery system can also provide backup power for your home in case of grid interruption. With solar battery storage, you could reduce your electricity consumption by 80%. You can also use solar battery storage to sell energy back to the grid at peak times for a premium rate.

    When you are connected to the grid (with no solar system) you have to purchase all of your electricity from an energy retailer which costs around 21c for every kilowatt-hour used. Solar Battery storage allows you to ‘self-consume’, meaning you can reduce your need to purchase from the grid. The electricity generated by your solar system will first be used by your appliances, and any surplus will be sold back to the grid.

    It is more cost efficient to self-consume than it is to export electricity. For this reason, it is very important to first measure how much electricity you use in your home and when you use it. This will allow you to install the correctly sized solar panel battery for your home and maximise cost efficiency. But keep in mind that almost no one has 100% self-consumption, so avoid any electrical contractor that calculates your investment based on 100% self-consumption.

    Our certified electricians can install an energy monitor to collect data on your electricity usage so we can accurately size your solar system for optimal savings. Install your solar panel battery today to start reducing your bills and improving your energy efficiency.
