Batteries

Have you been thinking about getting a battery system for your home?

If you’ve already got rooftop solar or are thinking about a new system, then combining this with a battery is one way you can make sure you get the most out of the investment.

Since solar panels only produce electricity during the day, they cannot power night-time electricity usage on their own. So many homeowners simply use energy supplied by our network at night.

But if your rooftop solar is generating more energy than you can use during the day, then an alternative is to store this energy in a battery so it is available when you need it.

Batteries store solar energy generated throughout the day, so that homeowners can take advantage of their own, renewable electricity at any time of the day or night.

It’s important to do your research and get advice on what’s right for you and your household.

The Clean Energy Council and Australian Energy Foundation have info to help you make the right decision.
