Battery Storage

Solar Battery Storage allows you to store electricity generated from the sun via your solar panels to use in the evening or at a later date. Adding a solar battery system is a great way to use renewable energy to increase your independence from the grid.

Solar power, as the name suggests, requires sunlight to create electricity. This means that solar panels cannot generate power during the night. To enable you to harness solar energy for use outside of daylight hours, you will need a solar battery.

Solar batteries store up the electricity generated during the day, so that you can continue to use green, renewable energy at night, ensuring you maintain your greater independence from the National Grid throughout the day and night.  Another added benefit is Smart Export Guarantee (SEG), a government-backed initiative which pays households to export their surplus renewable energy to the National Grid.

Frequently Asked Questions
You will find answers to all of your most common battery storage related questions here.
How big are solar batteries?
On average a battery is similar in size to carry-on hand luggage which you'd take on holiday. You’ll need somewhere to house the battery and system, they can be installed in most places such as in a garage, utility room or even under the stairs.
Where will the battery be installed?
We will conduct a full survey of your home that will help you to decide on the best location for your battery. It has to be fairly close to your main consumer unit so we have to take that in to account but we normally try to put it in a cupboard, garage, utility room or somewhere similar.
Can I have the battery in the loft?
Yes. Unlike the older batteries, which were too heavy, the new ones are much lighter and can be placed in a loft.
Can solar panels work without battery storage?
You don't need to have a battery for your solar panels to work. However, energy storage allows you to use more of the eco-friendly energy you generate in your home rather than exporting it back to the grid.
