A typical Solar PV system in the UK will fail to utilise approximately 50% of the FREE clean electricity generated by the Solar Panels. This surplus power is then exported to the National Grid. Unfortunately, Energy imported from the grid can cost 4 times more than the value paid for exporting. Adding a Battery Storage system can store all the surplus clean energy during the day ready for when you need it later in the day.
Other Battery Storage benefits when working with a “Smart meter” can include access to “agile tariffs”. For example, an Energy provider may offer discounted Electricity, sometimes FREE but only at certain times of the day. The Battery storage system can be scheduled to force charge in line with the tariffs to benefit from the discounted energy.
At SolarPowerful Ltd we only install Battery Storage Systems with a 10 year warranty as standard.
