Choosing a home battery system that really stacks up
Adding battery storage to your solar power system is a great way to further reduce your energy bills by maximising your solar energy usage and minimising your reliance on the grid. But not every battery offers the size, flexibility and scalability many Australians require.
Installing a solar power system is a smart way to offset your electricity costs. However, in most homes, a large proportion of the energy produced is sent back to the grid because it’s generated when it’s not needed i.e. the middle of the day. Adding home battery storage to a new or existing solar power system allows you to store your unused energy to use at night, on low sunlight days, or when utility rates are more expensive.
But it can be difficult to decide which battery system is right for you and how much storage capacity you will need, now and in the future.
