How Can I Benefit From Solar Battery Installation?

The benefits of solar battery storage systems could outweigh the initial financial outlay because you can:

  • Earn money from the excess energy you do not use through Smart Export Guarantee (SEG) tariffs when you export unused energy back into the National Grid.
  • Become less reliant on mains electricity. Having a battery means you can save energy to use when you need it.
  • Save money. With certain mains electricity tariffs, you can benefit from cheaper tariffs in off-peak hours. This means you can charge your battery from the mains during the night to use in peak daytime hours.
  • Cut your carbon footprint. As well as generating green energy, you can store it too, helping you cut your carbon footprint and contribute to the national drive to reduce carbon emissions.

What Solar Battery Do I Need?

The battery type you need will depend on your current set-up. Our experts can explain all the options and recommend the best system to suit both your needs and budget.

There are a few different options available, including lead acid and lithium batteries. Lithium ion batteries offer a longer lifespan and better overall performance and durability, but other cheaper batteries may be more suitable for your specific requirements.

Other things to consider include how much energy the battery will store in kWh, and the depth of discharge (DOD). Depth of discharge is related to how much energy you can use before recharging the battery. If you exceed the DOD limit before you recharge the battery, you can inadvertently shorten the lifespan of the unit.

We understand that battery storage is a significant investment and we will explain the pros and cons of each type in detail to ensure you can make an informed choice.

Can a solar panel store energy?

No. Unless you have a battery to store the energy, the electricity cannot be stored.

How long does a solar battery last?

Lithium ion batteries tend to have a longer service life of around 10 – 15 years. Lead acid batteries have a lifespan of approximately 5 – 8 years.
