What is a solar battery and what does it do?
Solar batteries can help you make the most of your solar panels and increase your independence from the grid.
Solar batteries capture excess, unused energy produced by your solar panels, and store it ready for use at night, during cloudy periods, or during a blackout. Storing your self-generated solar energy means you can power your home with clean, green electricity 24/7. You’ll be protected from rising electricity costs from retailers, could have power in a blackout, and you’ll be helping to protect the environment from greenhouse gases from coal-generated electricity.
How does home battery storage work?
How much will I save?
How much you could save on your energy bills depends on a number of factors including the output of your solar system and capacity of the battery, as well as the amount of energy your household uses and what time of day you use energy the most. We can help you calculate your potential savings when we do an analysis of your bill.

Can I afford it?
All households need to consider whether the savings they expect to see on their energy bills cover the cost of purchasing the battery over the battery’s life.
System Providers can provide you with an idea of your anticipated savings. However, if your motivations are financial, you will need to balance your budget with how much you would like to save on your energy bills and your daily electricity usage.
You might choose to go with just a single battery to suit your budget and maximise your payback, but this might also mean that you can’t cover off as much of your electricity bill: you may still be relying on a good amount of energy from the grid.
