Benefits of Solar Battery Storage
The benefits of solar battery storage speak for themselves:
Keep Your Power on During a Grid Outage
Not only do solar batteries act as a backup power source during an outage, but they also allow you to keep your solar panels on while the grid is down.
Grid-tied solar systems are automatically turned off when the grid is down to protect utility line workers from unexpected power surges. If you have a battery, however, your solar system will temporarily disconnect itself from the grid when a disruption occurs. It will then operate in island mode until the grid is back up and running, so you can continue to generate power and charge your batteries during the day while the grid is down.
Avoid High Utility Rates
Electricity rates can fluctuate depending on the time of day and the season. CPS Energy utilizes peak capacity charges from June through September, adding an additional charge for every kWh used over 600 kWh. Some utilities utilize time-of-use rates, which increase the cost of electricity during high-demand periods.
Utility company’s like GVEV utilizes time-of-use rates or peak capacity charges, you can strategically shift to battery power during these periods. This is called load shifting and is a great way to save money while reducing your reliance on the grid.
