Residential solar panels generate a lot of electricity when the sun is shining directly on them—more than you can use at once. Solar batteries allow you to store the excess power your solar panels generate and use it at any time.
In many ways, a solar battery is just like the battery in your phone. Your phone’s battery stores extra power so you can continue using your phone even when it’s not plugged into a power source. Your solar panel battery stores extra power so you can continue using solar energy when the sun sets and your solar panels don’t have an energy source to draw from.
Home solar with battery storage has more benefits than solar alone.
Solar panels and battery storage give you reliable backup power during a grid outage. You’ll be able to keep essentials running while the grid is down so your family can get through blackouts safely and comfortably. With severe weather becoming increasingly common, having a backup power source is more important than ever.
With a home solar power battery bank, you can use as much power as you want during on-peak hours without paying expensive time-of-use (TOU) rates. When TOU rates kick in, your battery can take over and run your home on stored solar power until on-peak hours end.
The electric grid generates most of its electricity by burning fossil fuels. That means any time you buy power from the grid, you’re using fossil fuels. With battery storage for your solar panels, you can use less grid power and more clean energy, reducing your carbon footprint.
Solar battery storage adds to the cost of your solar installation. But there are incentives available to make solar battery installation more affordable for your home. Solar batteries are eligible for the 30% federal solar tax credit, which reduces your federal income tax liability by 30% of your solar installation costs. This tax credit is available now and is the best way to save on solar battery installation. Don’t miss out—schedule a free consultation with Solar Power Pros today!
