What is Solar Battery Storage?

A solar battery can compliment your solar panel system depending on your energy usage.A solar battery is a device that stores excess electricity generated by your solar panels during the day. The energy stored can then be used during times when your solar panels aren’t generating, such as at night or during cloudy weather, allowing for greater energy independence and resilience.

A solar battery is an essential component if your home uses more energy during the evening. Your solar battery system will store the energy your system generates during the day for use at night when you are home.
