Frequently Asked Questions
Looking for more information or have a specific question? Check out some common questions and misconceptions with solar energy, solar panels and batteries.
What is a Solar + Battery Storage system?
A Solar + Battery Storage system combines a solar panel system with a battery storage unit. This setup allows you to store excess solar power generated during the day for use during the night or when the sun isn’t shining.
Why should I consider a battery storage system for my solar panels?
A battery storage system can allow you to use your solar-generated power even when the sun is not shining, enhancing your energy independence. It can also provide backup power during grid outages, increasing your home’s resilience.
How does a battery storage system work with solar panels?
When your solar panels produce more electricity than you need, the excess is stored in the battery. When your panels aren’t producing enough electricity, you can draw from the battery instead of drawing power from the grid.
What types of batteries are used for solar storage?
The most common type of battery used in our solar storage systems is Lithium Iron-Phosphate. This is due to its superior chemistry which allows it to operate at lower temperatures, enhancing safety and efficiency.
