Benefits of a Solar Battery System
1. Make the Most of Your Power
With standard solar power setups, you install panels and your system is plugged into the grid. If your panels, for whatever reason, don’t produce ample energy, your home draws on the grid to make up for the deficit.
With batteries, though, your excess power is stored in the battery system. On cloudy days or days when your system doesn’t produce as much power as usual, you can pull from the batteries instead of the grid.
2. Greater Energy Security
Solar battery systems allow your home to be more resilient when it comes to energy. Particularly useful if you live in an area where the grid is occasionally unstable, or you simply want to provide a greater level of certainty for your home’s power. Battery systems, such as the QCell batteries, can power key aspects of your home for hours, even if the grid goes down.
3. Reduce Your Home’s Carbon Footprint
Installing solar batteries allows you to reduce your home’s carbon footprint and bring it closer to self-sufficiency. This is essential for anyone who wants to “go green” and reduce pollution. Today, solar energy systems create much less pollution than traditional fossil fuels, and can help a home consume fewer resources in the years to come.
4. No Noise Pollution
Unlike generators, solar panels and battery storage systems don’t create noise pollution that will bother your neighbors. This is a unique benefit, and is a great way for anyone who currently has a generator to update their system.
5. Reduced Electric Bills
One of the biggest benefits of energy storage systems is that they will help you save on your electricity costs. Back up your home with a battery system and you’ll avoid the fees associated with electricity retailers, create self-sufficiency, and save the electricity you generate. All these are huge bonuses!
6. More Control
You get to store your excess energy in batteries rather than selling it back to the grid. This gives you more control over how you use your energy and where your excess goes.
