Many of us know about the benefits of solar.
We can leverage it to offset at least a portion of our energy usage. We use solar to go green and be kind to our planet. And we might even be able to get some energy credits back from our solar panels through programs like net metering.
The trouble with sustainable solar energy has always been solar battery efficiency. Low-efficiency batteries make it difficult to store meaningful amounts of energy for later use.
However, solar technology is constantly advancing. With smart batteries, solar battery efficiency is higher than ever. Smart solar batteries are not only improving the performance of our solar energy systems, but they also give us better storage options for when the grid goes down.
In fact, having solar energy as a way to back up the grid can be a lifesaver. Not just during blackouts, but also after natural disasters when power can’t be quickly restored. The best thing about solar is that it is a completely green and renewable energy source that is almost always available.
Why We Need Solar Batteries
Typically, when we install a solar energy system, mainly solar panels and a converter, we’re using all the energy we generate or returning it to the grid.
Solar batteries are an essential component of any solar energy system because they allow us to store the energy for later use rather than just using it as it comes in and losing any extra. This means we can save up solar energy to power our homes and businesses when the grid goes down. With solar and a solar battery bank, home and business owners have a reliable backup plan in case the grid fails.
There are essentially two ways the energy stored in batteries can be used. Short-term storage allows you have a lot of power for your home or business for a short amount of time. Think of it as being able to run everything in your home for a couple of hours.
Long-term storage allows you to generate a little bit of power for your home for a much longer period. In this
instance, you can liken it to keeping the lights on during a prolonged blackout.
What Are Smart Batteries?
Before now, solar battery capacity was a bit limited and there weren’t many options in terms of solar storage. Now, however, battery technology is improving right along with solar panels. Smart solar batteries are now available, which significantly improve energy performance and storage capacity.
Smart batteries optimize the storage of solar energy so that you can get more hours of energy out of the battery before it is depleted. They come in a variety of capacities so that they fit just about any solar energy setup you can imagine. Before now, it took several batteries to store a small amount of power while the rest of the energy that was generated had to be used or transferred to the grid.
As we said, solar storage is necessary to have power when you need it or when the lights go out. These smart solar batteries allow you to get more power from your panels and store it for longer periods.
These batteries also last longer, require less maintenance, and can be repeatedly recharged once they are drained. This means you don’t have to worry if you’re in an area that experiences frequent blackouts or outages!
