How Battery Storage Works

This page is all about providing you with the basics to understand how battery storage works and understand the different types of applications you can use battery storage

During the Day
  • Solar power charges the batteries and excess energy powers appliances inside the house
  • None to very little export energy into the grid (perfect!)

During the Night
  • The charged batteries powers the selected household appliances (no need to rely on the grid!)
  • If additional energy is required above what is stored in the batteries, then the normal grid supply can still be used
Battery Storage advantages
  • Clean Green Energy is available 24hrs
  • Power available even during power blackouts
  • Provides Peak-Load shedding for House loads
  • Enhance operational life to existing powerlines and transformer infrastructure

Battery Storage disadvantages
  • More expensive than Grid-connect solar systems
  • Requires additional electrical hardware
  • Some careful design work needed upfront, to maximise the system size and operating efficiency

I had Solar panels installed by The Solar Man prior to Christmas and was so happy with the help I received. Very professional install , competitive pricing and very knowledgable informing me on the operation of the system. Would recommend them to anyone wishing to save some dollars with electricity bills.

Had a visit from Arnaud Cugy to discuss my future solar needs after I lose the 60 cents rebate on the 31st December 2016 and he was extremely helpful in his advice and what I needed to do. Could not be more pleased with his advice and knowledge and I feel very comfortable with the decision to go with The Solar Man for our needs for the future, many thanks.

In spite of a problem with our roof cavity The Solar Man stuck around to make sure the job was done, even though it meant a 7pm finish. Thank you.
