In today’s age of renewable energy sources, the demand for efficient and reliable battery storage systems is paramount..
At Infinity Innovations, we offer cutting-edge solar battery storage systems tailored to meet diverse energy needs.
Understanding Solar Panel Battery Storage
- What is solar panel battery storage?
Solar panel battery storage, often referred to as solar battery storage systems, are devices that store excess solar energy produced by solar panels for later use.
This allows homeowners and businesses to utilise solar energy even when the sun isn’t shining, ensuring a constant power supply.
- What size solar storage battery do I need?
Choosing the right storage battery size depends on:
- Daily Energy Consumption: Measure your daily energy use to determine the battery’s required capacity.
- Solar Panel Output: If you have solar panels, consider their energy output to gauge how much excess energy you’ll need to store.
- Backup Duration: Decide how long you want the battery to last during outages. More extended backup requires a larger battery.
- Usable vs. Total Capacity: Focus on the battery’s usable capacity, which is the actual amount you can use, rather than its total capacity.
- Future Energy Needs: Anticipate any upcoming increases in your energy consumption, such as new appliances or electric vehicles.
- Budget: Larger batteries are more expensive, so balance your energy needs with what you’re willing to spend.
- What’s the ‘useable’ capacity?
This refers to the amount of energy a battery can provide. For instance, a battery with a 10kWh capacity might have a usable capacity of 9kWh.
- What are ‘cycles’?
A cycle refers to a full charge and discharge of a battery. The more cycles a battery can handle, the longer its lifespan.
- What capacity do I need?
This depends on your daily energy consumption. If your solar panels produce 5kWh and you use 10kWh daily, a battery with a usable capacity of at least 5kWh is ideal.
- What’s Charge/Discharge power?
This is the speed at which a battery can charge or discharge. A higher rate is beneficial during peak energy usage times. Higher discharge rate allows you to cover higher or peak load demand in your home.
- What’s the price per kWh?
This is the cost of storing energy in the battery. Lower costs per kWh mean better value for money.
- What about power cuts?
Good solar battery storage systems can provide backup power during outages, ensuring you’re never left in the dark. It will be necessary to determine which are your critical loads, and these circuits can be moved over to a back up board.
- What solar battery price can you expect?
The price varies based on capacity, brand, and features. Infinity Innovations offers a range of options to fit different budgets, ensuring you get the best value for your investment.
- How much will I save with a solar battery?
Savings depend on your energy consumption, local electricity tariffs, and the efficiency of your solar system.
On average, homeowners can expect to save significantly on their electricity bills by storing and using solar energy, especially during peak times when electricity rates are higher.
