Solar PV is superb, but there’s a mismatch in that a home’s energy needs are greatest in the early morning and in the evening, whilst the availability of sunlight is strongest in the middle of the day. In order to maximise the efficiency of your Solar Panels, you need battery storage.
This allows energy to be stored during the day and used at the most convenient times. A large battery pack is attached to your electricity generating asset, and is charged when the flow of electricity exceeds the building’s demand for power. The battery is then discharged when the building’s demand for electricity exceeds the asset’s production of it. In the case of Solar PV, this would occur during the evening and night when no electricity is generated.
Franck Energy can help you choose the right Battery Storage system, and manage the process of installation from start to finish. Go green, save money, and innovate with renewable energy.
Battery Storage FAQs
Battery storage packs are available in various forms and use different technologies. Size-wise, they range in size from the size of a microwave to the size of a washing machine. They will therefore easily fit into a cellar or utility room without taking too much extra space.
Installation typically takes just one day, but it is important to consider the type of battery you need based on the type of electricity-generating assets that are associated with your house, as well as the general power needs of your household. Other factors such as specifics of your building and the climate of your surroundings may play a part in whether a battery storage pack will prove useful for your household and what size and type of technology would be best suited to your situation.
This depends on your system and property requirements. Contact Franck Energy today for more detailed information about costs, and your expected savings from Solar PV and other renewable solutions.
