What are some of the benefits of a solar battery system for your home?
- Significantly reduces your energy bills
Installing a battery along with your solar PV system to your new home in Yarrabilba can help you save on your electricity bill!
With solar PV and a battery, you can store any excess solar energy you don’t use during the day and use this overnight, further reducing your reliance on the electricity grid and lowering your electricity bills. These everyday savings can add up to make a big difference.
For example, an average household electricity bill without solar and a battery would be around $50 per week, while the average household with solar and battery system would be paying as little as $9 per week for electricity, which is equivalent to 2 small coffees.
- Energy security and independence
Usually, battery systems that are classified as ‘multimode’, or ‘hybrid’ can provide some standalone back-up power, though the amount of power you receive and how long it will last during an outage depends on several factors. These include the size of your solar system, the amount of electricity you use during that time, and the energy consumption of the appliances that you wish to keep running during an outage. It is important to note that the wiring and circuits in your home may need to be adapted to protect appliances. During an outage, some multimode inverters can operate continuously in standalone, and some only provide backup to one or two priority circuits such as your fridge and lights. If you are interested in this type of system, talk to your electrician and solar installer about the options.
- Reduce your carbon footprint
Want to go green? Pairing your solar PV system with battery storage is the best way to ensure your home maintains a small carbon footprint!
Using solar energy with a home battery means that when the sun isn’t shining you don’t have to draw power from the grid- which is reliant on fossil fuels, instead you can store your own energy to use when you need it. Fossil fuels, including coal and natural gasses and oil, account for around 71% of total electricity.
When you install a battery system, you get to use all the clean solar energy your panels produce, and your batteries can store.
