Solar Plus Battery Storage 101

What’s a “Solar Plus Battery” Storage System?
A Solar Plus Battery storage system is a battery system that takes the energy collected from the sun and stores it for use at any time. Solar panels absorb sunlight and convert it into electricity suitable for powering your home. However, these panels only have the ability to collect and convert energy, without any means of storing it for later. Thus, the energy is only accessible while the sun is shining. Once night falls or in the event of a power outage, these solar panels are rendered useless. Luckily, the Solar Plus Battery system allows the energy to be absorbed during the day and stored for later use. This system acts as a type of battery, collecting and saving the sun’s energy and ensuring constant, reliable electricity.

Why Are More People Choosing Solar Plus Battery Storage?
Solar panels are only able to absorb sunlight and convert it into electricity for present use. Individually, they are unable to store energy for later use, but with the Solar Plus Battery system, the impossible becomes possible. This system allows 24/7 energy availability that can be used even after the sun has set. Whether it’s family movie nights or keeping the lights on during a power outage, this Solar Plus Battery system allows the sun to power your home, even when the moon has taken over for the day. 

Maximize Cost Savings
Solar Plus Battery also allows you to save a lot of money on your electricity bills. By synching with time of use rate plans, you can store energy when it’s cheap and dispatch it when it’s expensive. Maximizing your cost savings is not just good for your wallet but also good for the planet. There’s no smarter way to self power your home.

Empowering Energy Independence
Solar Plus Battery storage systems not only offer environmental benefits but also empower homeowners to achieve energy independence. By generating and storing their own energy, homeowners can reduce reliance on traditional utility providers and fluctuating electricity prices. With the ability to store excess energy during off-peak hours and use it during peak demand periods, homeowners can further optimize their energy usage and minimize costs. This shift towards energy independence gives homeowners greater control over their energy consumption and contributes to a more sustainable future.

Innovative Solar Plus Battery Solutions
As technology advances, innovative solutions in solar plus battery storage systems are emerging to meet the growing demand for sustainable energy. These systems integrate solar panels with battery storage, allowing homeowners to harness and store solar energy for later use. Advanced features such as smart energy management algorithms optimize energy usage, maximizing efficiency and cost savings. Additionally, grid connectivity enables seamless energy sharing and backup power capabilities, ensuring uninterrupted electricity supply during outages. These cutting-edge solutions empower homeowners to take control of their energy consumption and reduce their carbon footprint.

Which Type of Battery Should You Choose?
Batteries store energy to power our electrical devices, however in the case of the Solar Plus Battery system, these batteries store energy originating from the sun. While many different metals can be used for energy storage, Lithium is the most popular for many reasons: lightweight, large energy capacity, long-lasting charging abilities, affordable, and accessible. Lithium batteries have the highest energy density out of all rechargeable batteries, meaning they can hold the most energy, and store it for the longest amount of time. This is a result of their reversible chemical reactions which gives them the ability to absorb energy and release it later. It’s no wonder Lithium batteries are the most popular in the world.
