Similar to any systems, your solar energy also runs in battery and at times. This is the cause of an expensive and costly repairs especially if the battery system is not robust. To make sure your solar energy system’s battery is functioning well, you have to consider that the chemical materials used in the battery, the capacity to store solar energy, the life cycle of the battery and the usable volume are all symmetrically efficient.
An effective solar battery system usually lasts from 5 to 15 years and solar panels usually lasts from 15 to 30 years which technically means during the lifetime of the panels, you would have to replace the batteries which means you have to allocate money to replace the batteries at least six times (if the batteries only last for 5 years). So, having a storage system for your solar batteries to store electricity is one of the ways you could ensure your solar batteries would be functional until they are due for replacement.
Storage for energy for later use
The main use for battery system storage is to have a place to store energy for later use. Solar panels collect solar energy that you could not use the moment they are collected which is available for you to use during time when the sun is not available to produce solar energy such as at night or during cloudy days.
With this, you have readily renewable solar energy around the clock, so long as the electricity you are using does not exceed the solar energy in your solar battery storage system. Otherwise, if you are still connected to a power grid, you would receive an electric bill since you are using energy that is not solar.
Affordable energy bill
When you store solar energy, you could instead use them during peak hours or when the charge for energy from the power grid is more expensive. When you do this, you would pay less for electricity from your utility company. With the money you would be able to save, you could use it instead into the solar panels’ upkeep or battery replacement after 5 years.
Earn extra money
You might not know it but you could even earn extra money by selling the energy stored in your battery system. When you have more than enough energy stored in your batteries, more than what you can use, you could sell this energy back to the power grid.
The utility company would pay you back for the energy that you contribute to the electrical grid. When the time comes that your panels are making more than you can use, you could at least consider being totally independent from the power grid.
The numerous pros of having a solar battery system storage are certainly beneficial to store electricity when the sun is not up. Purchasing one is obviously another expenditure but at least the money you used to purchase the batteries would definitely help you lower your energy and electricity costs.
