Benefits of Battery Storage for Homeowners in Encinitas
You may have heard that in recent years that some innovative companies have developed batteries that compliment a home solar panel system. We have partnered with the top of the line providers of batteries to install for our customers. Here you can read up on how to choose the best battery for your needs.
Installing batteries Encinitas can allow you to store your solar energy for later use. Usually, your solar panels are hard at work generating power during the day when most of us are at work. With a battery system, you can store that power to use while you are home in the evening. You can also save your excess energy to “sell” back to SDG&E during those “time of use” rates that may be higher than other times of the day when usage is at its peak. Here is an interesting article that demonstrates how a solar system and a backup battery working together can cut costs.
These are individual batteries that are made to withstand being charged and discharged many times over the course of multiple years. While lithium-ion batteries are the best, there are other options out there. We can go over all of your options and answer any questions you may have.
How do solar batteries supply power?
Here are the necessary steps for using your stored power:
- During the day, your solar panels supply energy to your home to keep your appliances and other things running in your home. They also channel excess energy to charge your batteries.
- If your solar panels provide enough power to charge your batteries completely, the excess power travels back through the grid to the power company. You earn credits for later use.
- In the evening in Encinitas, when there is no sun to power the panels directly, your batteries will provide inverted power to your home so that you do not have to rely on the grid for energy, especially when evening rates are higher.
- If there is a power outage, you can rely on your batteries to give you electricity.
Batteries can provide even more peace of mind than solar panels alone. Most homeowners in Encinitas who install both are delighted and love that they are not entirely reliant on “the grid” to provide them with electricity.
If you already have solar panels, give us a call! We can come to evaluate your current solar panel system to see if we can add batteries to your existing system. If you want to install a new solar system and are considering adding batteries at the same time or even at a later date, we can discuss your options with you. Thank you for supporting a locally owned and veteran operated business.
