"Complementary, but not essential."
"I postponed installing solar panels for many years until battery storage." was a common phrase after 2016. PV (photovoltaic) solar panels and battery storage allow homes to squirrel away power to offset the cost of an installation. This addition means the magic of solar panels comes with evening use.
In a nutshell:
65% of energy costs are racked-up in the evening. Battery storage lasts approx ten years and another decade at around 80% of the original capacity. Lithium Ion Phosphate (LFP) chemistry is preferable to Cobalt batteries as they increase charge cycles and switch device flow seamlessly. 5.8 - 24 KW storage options.
"This is not a standard storage system. I consider this battery storage system to be the best available within the industry. This battery system incorporates convenient on and off-grid potential. This high voltage battery device can be installed in series with up to three slave units to be added (three phase only), enabling up to 23kWh of storage capacity for more thirsty power consumers."
Find out how and why to install this product.
How many evening hours?
Several, but this depends on your home's consumption and appliance demand.
How long do the batteries last?
Typically, 6000 recharging cycles from a drain to full charge, but up to 8000 dependent on the drainage routine. The system will switch between devices on-demand and seamlessly automatically.
Can I still use Economy 7?
Yes. Ensure to make the installation team aware that you have Economy 7, so they can draw from the grid rather than the battery after 11 pm.
Is it easy to install?
Battery storage installations come with minimum fuss. DIY installations aren't possible because of Part P electrical requirements. Work alongside a local sparky to self-install.
