Why Solar Batteries?

Under California’s new net-metering rules, 100% solar production offset no longer helps the homeowner achieve energy savings. As the export rates being reduced by 70% by NEM 3.0, having just solar panels will not be enough for homeowners.

Solar batteries allow homeowners to store solar produced energy and access that energy when it is best to do so. With a solar battery, you’ll be able to offset your electricity costs when its peak demand for electricity.

You won’t have to fully rely on electric companies all the time and can sustain off your own energy storage depending on what size solar battery systems you get.

A solar battery can help you save money on your electricity bill by allowing you to store excess solar energy and draw power from it during a time of day when electricity rates are higher. A solar battery can also provide backup power in the event of a power outage.

By assessing a solar batteries’ worth from an investment standpoint, you’d need to factor in many different things. Our sales team will start by asking what your goal is with purchasing a battery storage system. When discussing battery backup options, energy savings, and reliable power during blackouts are usually top of mind for homeowners. Another consideration when combining storage with solar power is calculating the annual energy consumption offset.

In general, a solar battery can be used to power your entire home, but it may not be able to do so for an extended period of time, especially if you have high energy needs. We do offer power plan packages to homeowners who’d like to sustain sufficiently off the power grid, but that typically comes at higher costs to homeowners who are looking for an extra peace of mind at home. 

A solar battery’s capacity is measured in kilowatt-hours (kWh), and the amount of energy it can provide will depend on the battery’s size and the amount of sunlight available to recharge it. If you have a large solar battery and a low energy usage, it’s possible that the battery could power your entire home. 

The most common appliances that can operate on standard solar batteries will be your essentials such as refrigerators, internet modem, garage door, lights. They all fall under the basic battery protective loads.  

No, you do not necessarily need to have solar panels installed to use a battery storage system. However, solar panels are the most common way to charge a solar battery with renewable energy.

A solar battery then stores the excess electricity generated by the solar panels and converts it back into alternating current (AC) electricity when needed. This allows you to use the stored solar energy during times when the sun is not shining or when electricity rates are higher.

Choosing the right size and capacity for a solar battery depends on several factors: Energy usage habits, the size of your home, and the amount of sunlight available in your area. Here are some steps you can take to determine the right size and capacity for your solar battery:

  1. Determine your energy needs: Look at your electricity bills over the past year and determine your average daily energy usage. This will give you an idea of how much energy your solar battery will need to store.

  2. Consider your energy goals: Do you want to use your solar battery as a way to save money on your energy costs,, or do you want it to power your entire home during an outage? Your energy goals will help determine the size and capacity of your solar battery.

  3. Calculate your battery capacity: Our solar experts can help calculate the battery capacity you need in kilowatt-hours by asking about your energy goals and factoring in your current annual electricity consumption.

  4. Consider the battery’s discharge rate: The discharge rate refers to the amount of energy a battery can provide at any given time. If you have high energy needs, you may need a battery with a high discharge rate to ensure that it can power all of your appliances.

Just like any piece of equipment, regular upkeep is necessary to maintain optimal performance. Our technicians help keep the battery terminals clean by wiping the area of dirty and dust buildup, which can interfere with the unit’s performance. 

Our team of monitors will regularly check on your battery’s performance to identify any signs of degradation or malfunction. This includes checking the voltage and the battery’s overall health. 

With our exclusive Know True-Up software, you’ll be able to stay up to date as you get to see your own solar battery energy performance and you’ll be notified if your energy storage and usage levels are lower than what it should be. Another option for you, is to ensure your solar panels get properly maintained and cleaned regularly, so you can be sure that your solar is working most efficiently.
