In recent years, residential solar power battery backups have become increasingly popular and widespread. However, as more and more homes install solar batteries, people still remain confused about the complexity of the battery system. So, how does solar power battery storage work?
Today, the modern solar battery use lithium-ion batteries and most are "grid-tied" systems. Although battery packs for solar storage can be completely "off-grid," you need to install a large number of batteries, which will quickly become expensive. Therefore, modern batteries are primarily used for backup power, supplementing power during utility outages, or peak shaving (using electricity during the most expensive peak demand periods).
In addition to helping you save money, solar batteries also provide predictable power and benefit the environment. While most households see their solar production vary according to weather patterns and solar intensity, homes equipped with batteries store excess energy produced during production for use in the home when needed. As a general rule, solar panels produce 4 to 5 times as much energy during the summer months as during the winter. This means your system will generate surplus during the warm months (and receive credit from your utility provider) and underproduce during the winter. Therefore, installing solar batteries can help offset some of the low winter production values.
Simply adding solar batteries and completing it is not enough. Instead, you need to make your home work as efficiently as possible. What should you do before installing a solar power battery system?
Reduce your daily energy consumption, which helps ensure that you do not deplete your stored energy and make your solar batteries more efficient for your home. Look for ways to reduce energy consumption, such as investing in energy-saving appliances and shortening shower time. You can also install smart thermostats to help you save energy in your home. Prevent unnecessary energy loss by weatherizing your home, preventing pipe freezing and leakage, and keeping warm in cool weather and cool in warm weather. Not all battery packs are created equal. To determine the size that suits you, you need to figure out how much energy you use each day and how many "autonomous days" you want to establish.
