Residential solar panels have proven an efficient and effective way of generating energy from the sun. As it is renewable and not destructive to the environment, more and more Australian households are choosing to make the switch to solar. The only downside to home solar systems, is that they can only provide power when they are exposed to sunlight. However, by implementing the use of solar batteries, you can store excess energy that is created by the solar panels for later use. This article from Solar Power Direct will discuss the benefits of solar batteries, as well as how much you should expect to spend on one.
Unlike solar power, solar batteries have uses far beyond lowering your carbon footprint and reducing your energy costs. Solar batteries enable you to store energy for later use. This means that with the installation of solar batteries, you are protected from potential blackouts and price rises in electricity. It also gives you the freedom to run your home on solar 24 hours a day, instead of only when the sun is shining. Another unique benefit of solar power batteries is their ability to be used to power other utilities than just your home. For example, a large enough solar battery has the capacity for you to charge your electric car!
Depending on the brand and capacity of the solar power battery, you are looking at prices between $5000 to $14,500, for fully installed and ready to use batteries. Integrating a solar power battery into home solar systems may be a costly initial investment, however the money you save in the long run, will be worth it.
Solar Power Direct offers a few different solar power battery products. Our most popular being the Tesla Powerwall. Although this product is expensive, its versatility and durability are worth every cent.
