The Benefits of Solar Battery Storage: Take Advantage of Your Solar⚡

 The Benefits of Solar Battery  Storage 

Solar energy is a renewable source of energy that is becoming increasingly popular for properties in the Newcastle and Hunter region.

In addition to the uptake of Solar energy, Solar Battery Storage for homes and businesses are becoming more mainstream with the solid advantages that solar storage provides. The feature of being able to store excess renewable energy use 24/7 is very helpful in times of peak electricity times and grid outages.

What are some of the benefits of investing in a Solar Battery?

Reduced Energy Bills

By using stored solar energy during peak times, homeowners can reduce their reliance on the grid and lower their energy bills. In some cases, homeowners may be able to completely eliminate their energy bills by using solar energy and battery storage.

Increased Energy Independence

Using solar energy and battery storage allows for more energy independence. They are no longer reliant on the grid for their energy needs and can generate their own electricity even during power outages

Improved Energy Efficiency

Using solar battery storage can also help improve energy efficiency. By storing excess solar energy during the day, you can use it at night when energy consumption is typically higher. This can help reduce overall energy consumption and lower energy bills.

Reduced Carbon Footprint

Using solar energy and battery storage is an environmentally friendly choice that can help reduce a homeowner's carbon footprint. By reducing reliance on fossil fuels, homeowners can help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and combat climate change.

The Increased Value in Batteries vs. The Decrease in Price

As time continues, batteries are becoming more accessible to property owners as means of cheaper battery storage solutions. With the popularity of solar owners investing in batteries, and the advancement of battery technology, the overall price continues to drop.

Over the past 5 years, we have seen some great products release into the public eye, such as the Tesla Powerwall 2. The Powerwall 2 is a fantastic example of a battery that can be installed in less than a day and provide backup power for years and years.
As batteries become cheaper, more people are considering installing one, and we find that now is a better time than ever to consider investing in a battery for your home or business as there are not only huge savings to be made on your energy bill, but there are opportunities to even make money, through services like Amber.
