Solar Systems go offline once the sun goes down, this is when a battery comes into use, discharging the stored energy from the daytime to service your home or workplace power requirements.
Most battery systems will provide a feature referred to as a backup option, providing power to your home or workplace during a scheduled power outage or a grid blackout. When this backup feature to your battery system is included, you will have a nominated number of circuits that will provide you with limited power. This can be a circuit of power sockets, some lighting, and possibly the garage door, through careful management it will generally sustain you until the normal power supply resumes allowing you to have the comforts in power outages.
Battery systems are a smart investment if you rely on consistent power supply to your home or workplace. The excess energy that is not consumed during the day is typically exported to the grid for a credit on your power bill. Having a battery system in place, combined with your solar system, you can store that excess energy and use it once the sun goes down. This takes you away from using the power from the grid direct and your simply using your own stored power, how great is that!
With declining feed-in tariffs from energy retailers for the exported energy to the grid, greater financial returns can be achieved storing your own energy rather than selling it back to your retailer.
Combined with the right electricity supply plan, you could make further savings by adopting a few behavioural changes and making use of your stored power during peak tariff periods.
A battery-storage system offers flexibility and can provide power backup during electricity outages or blackouts. They are versatile, they continue to decline in cost, and will provide you with another renewable energy option for many years.
Lower feed-in credits from energy retailers, for excess energy from your solar system, means that keeping your own energy is more valuable than ever.
Our future has vastly become our today, with ever-changing technologies creating an innovative platform for the minimisation of our carbon footprint in this fast paced world we live in.

REDUCTION IN ENERGY COSTS
Achieve lower, consistent energy bills all year by storing and using your own generated energy.
A battery system can ensure you are more independent, self sufficient and even allow you to live somewhat off the grid.
Have peace of mind with the knowledge you can backup your home if the grid ever fails.
Installing a home battery system to store your own energy, generated by your very own solar power system has fast become higher in demand than ever before, with grid stability and outages more common!
