What You Need to Know about Batteries When You Invest in Solar Panel Systems in Brisbane
For years, businesses and homeowners have assumed that solar power systems were all about the panels. The goal in a solar power investment was to install panels that could then produce energy and reduce the need for electrical power from the power grid. Storage of the collected energy, however, has not been much of an option—at least, not until now.
At Hush Energy, our solar systems in Brisbane are no longer just about the panels. Just recently, it has become affordable to pair solar systems with lithium batteries capable of storing the energy collected during a sunny day. Thanks to this innovation, it’s possible to use solar energy at night as well as during the day.
The Future of the Solar Energy Industry
Needless to say, batteries are the future of the solar power industry. The weakness of solar panels has always been that they can collect energy during the day, but are ineffective at night. As such, the possibility of a home or business operating solely on solar power has been nearly fantastical.
It isn’t anymore. When you buy solar panels from Brisbane’s Hush Energy, you will get a system ready-built for battery connection. Using lithium AC batteries from both LG and Enphase Energy, we can equip your solar energy system with a modular energy storage system. Over time, you can expand the system to store more energy and increase your capacity. With a large enough battery storage system, it is finally possible to make solar energy the primary type of power that your home or business uses daily.
Start Storing Your Solar Power in Brisbane Today
With the growing capacity and reliability of solar energy batteries—as well as their exceedingly more affordable prices—every modern solar power system in Brisbane should at least be set up to use batteries in the future. As the technology continues to advance, batteries will transition from being a luxury in the solar power industry to being commonplace.
However, many cheaper solar power systems in Brisbane these days are not set up for battery connections. If you wanted to connect a battery to one of these systems in the future, then, you would have to pay to have it modified. In other words, the initial savings you would get from buying a cheap system would disappear if you ever wanted to start storing your solar energy. You’d also need to make sure that your system can monitor the charge/discharge levels of your batteries.
When you buy solar systems from Brisbane’s Hush Energy, you buy with future expansion ability in mind. All our systems are ready for battery connections. Even if you decide not to purchase a battery just yet, with a Hush Energy system, you always have the option to do so. This flexibility is a built-in saving that might just make our system more affordable in the long run than the cheap budget models—even if it comes with a more premium-level price tag today. Our systems also include full-time monitoring—not just of energy production and consumption, but also of battery status.
