Optimise your PV system with solar battery storage
Battery Storage Systems
Solar battery storage systems are designed to capture surplus solar energy, that would usually be exported to the grid, storing it for use later in the evening.
With the latest industry advancements such as Time-Of-Use tariffs, allowing you to charge your battery overnight with cheap energy, and Grid Trading giving you the opportunity to sell your energy which will be credited to you against your energy bills, battery storage has become a sophisticated, intelligent essential part of your home energy system.
The benefits of battery storage
Save more money
By using stored solar energy in the evenings or when the sun isn’t shining, you will not need to draw as much energy from your supplier, saving you even more money on your bills.
With a solar battery storage system, you are taking a step closer to energy independence and futureproofing your home against impending issues such as brownouts and blackouts.
Protection from price hikes
Energy suppliers are continually hiking their prices. Indeed, they have been increasing at eight times the rate of earnings. By using your self-generated solar energy in the day and stored energy when the sun isn’t shining, you will be drawing less energy from your supplier.
Battery software can be updated over the air, so as technology continues to develop, you will know that your investment will keep on improving with time.
Maximise solar energy
If you are exporting more than expected, due to being out during the day or low energy usage in general, then you are effectively exporting your investment in solar energy. Using stored energy will allow you to maximise on the solar energy that you have generated.
Some batteries have the ability to charge from the grid, making use of low-rate Time-Of-Use tariffs and providing a cheap alternative to drawing from the grid in winter months when your solar may not be producing as much.

Maximising Self Consumption
Maximising the self consumption of your solar PV system
There are times during the day that you will maximise solar energy production, and peak times you will use energy.
Most households peak use tends to be in the mornings and late afternoon/evenings. In winter months, there is little or no daylight at these times. Reversely, when the system is operating at its maximum, households are usually unable to make use of all the electricity that is being generated and therefore it is sent to the grid.
A storage system saves the unused daytime peak energy for when your home needs it most, maximising your consumption of the clean energy you generate.
Time-of-use tariff rates
Make the most of new tariff options
Time-of-use tariffs are in place to incentivise you as a homeowner to use more energy during off-peak times rather than on-peak times. Since smart meters record energy consumption every half hour, it is possible for energy suppliers to charge different tariff rates to reflect your actual energy consumption. This means for a more cost reflective tariff so that you can take control of your energy plan to suit your lifestyle, like some homeowners did when the Economy 7 and 10 tariffs were introduced.
