Battery Storage

Get paid for keeping the grid stable

For many of our solar PV customers, getting a home battery system is the obvious next step.  Working families who are out during the day are especially aware that although they are generating their own clean green power, they don’t get to use it themselves.  A solar battery system can dramatically increase the percentage of solar electricity that gets consumed within the home.  It makes you more self-sufficient, and you can go for months without buying electricity from the national grid.  Some home batteries now come with the ability to ride through power cuts, so your supply of electricity is entirely secure.

  • Be more self-sufficient
  • Store electricity to run your home at night
  • Or even power your car
  • Never have a power cut
  • Store cheap night-time electricity
  • Get paid for keeping the grid stable

How solar battery storage works?

Battery storage options have improved dramatically in 2021, with better products and lower prices, which makes investing in battery the sensible choice. Battery storage enables you to store excess solar and also charge from lower off-peak rates, reducing your electricity bills.

Power prices are rising

If set up with off-peak charging, a battery will charge up overnight at cheap rate power, then this power will be used in the morning before the sun rises, then during the middle of the day when your panels are producing more power than you are using it will store this excess again, charging back up so that this power can then be used in the evening.

Use more of your solar energy

Battery storage options have improved dramatically in 2021, with better products and lower prices, which makes investing in battery the sensible choice. Battery storage enables you to store excess solar and also charge from lower off-peak rates, reducing your electricity bills.

Off peak charging

Solar batteries can also be configured to charge overnight when there are cheaper rates available (for example Octopus Go allows you to charge at 7.5p between 00.30 and 4.30am), which is a great way of getting lower energy costs all year round.

Be more self sufficient

By generating and storing your own power you can take back control of your energy.  We have customers with solar and storage who can almost reduce their cost of energy to zero for a large proportion of the year.  It also means you are less vulnerable to the fluctuating energy prices.

Back up power

Additionally batteries will allow you to backup your whole home, or a few circuits, meaning the lights stay on when there is a power cut.

I already have solar panels, how will it affect me?

If you already have solar installing a battery will not impact your Feed-in Tariff income or the export tariff that you receive. If you fit an AC system it is completely separate to your Solar PV system and will not impact in any way.
