Storing solar power with batteries offers big savings on electric bills. In fact, some people are able to save over 70%, others 50%. A good system will usually generate surplus energy, bringing great value. For example, solar batteries can retain surplus power that the system produces during peak periods during the day, for later use.
Just how important are solar power batteries?
Batteries enable one to store the power that isn’t currently powering the home. This way, homeowners can use this excess power at times when the generation cannot meet the demand. Furthermore, this power is available around the clock. With surging gas prices all over the world, access to cheap energy such as solar is a boon for many people.
Consequently, battery deployments keep improving to match the rate at which facilities can generate power. Furthermore, this allows for additional levels of functionality for solar plants as well as home solar panel systems. Indeed, they also serve as security against potential price increases as well as the occasional power outage. Above all, batteries can play a key role in homeowners’ dreams for a net-zero electric bill.
For this reason, and to enable the solar industry to realize its full potential, developing better batteries should be a priority. To be fair, it already is—companies are working hard to make batteries better and more affordable for the average consumer. Consequently, from the likes of Tesla to other lesser-known entities, development of bigger and better batteries is under way.
Incentives for storing solar energy
Even so, many people install home solar without adding battery storage for their units. In fact, surveys in many territories show that only a small percentage of solar PV system owners own a home battery. Generally, costs are seen to be high. Thus, shelling out for the current cost of a battery unit is still not seen as worth the potential gains. Nevertheless, a good percentage of residents are now showing interest in owning solar batteries in the near future.
Indeed, in some countries, governments are providing incentives not just for the purchase of solar power systems but also for energy storage. Still, these are quite meagre and cannot truly facilitate adoption of batteries to complement PV systems. For this reason, there have to be additional subsidies in place for batteries to be more viable from a financial perspective. In fact, that’s the only way people on the fence will surely opt for energy storage.
Storing excess energy has many little-known benefits
In the first place, there are those who can afford to install batteries for their systems, but don’t do so. Of course, this may be because they are unaware of the benefits they can take advantage of. Moreover, they may not know of a reliable supplier in their area. For this reason, access to adequate information is so important. In particular, the solar industry needs to ramp up its efforts to better educate the buying public,
