The benefits of a solar battery

  • Charge during the day

    Get more from your current solar system. Store any excess energy your solar system produces during the day.

  • Use at night

    Power your home when the sun goes down. Your solar battery works when it’s needed, day or night.

  • Have a backup

    Stay in control when the power goes out. Keep select appliances running with the addition of backup power.*

*Backup power is an additional feature and may attract an additional cost. Backup power is dependent on the availability of excess energy stored in your battery at the time of any power outage.

How solar batteries work

In a setup with only panels and an inverter, your home uses the energy being produced and the excess is sent off to the grid. A battery intercepts this energy and stores it for later use.

With a battery, you can use solar energy when the sun isn’t shining or your solar system isn’t producing enough to cover your energy needs.

Batteries can also serve as a back up for your home in the event of a power outage. If the power goes out you can use the stored battery power to keep pre-determined appliances running.*

*Backup power is an additional feature and may attract an additional cost. Backup power is dependent on the availability of excess energy stored in your battery at the time of any power outage.
