Battery Storage Eastbourne

Solar photovoltaic (PV) systems are a beneficial renewable energy source, which can be gathered and utilised in your own home but to really make the most out of having one, battery storage is essential.

What is a Photovoltaic System?

A solar photovoltaic system helps you to make your own power using the energy from the sun. Solar PV panel systems consist of solar panels attached to the roof of your house and when light shines on the panels, it generates electricity. This means that you save money because you use less power from the UK National Grid and you are also using more sustainable energy, which is less detrimental to the planet.

Why Use Battery Storage?

PV panels will make energy during daylight hours (even on cloudy days) and your home won’t necessarily use all that energy. Typically, if the energy isn’t used, it will go to the National Grid but if you have battery storage, then the system can be used to store power for usage at another point. For example, if the energy is created and stored during the day, it can then be used in the evening for watching television or making dinner.

Storing and using energy that you’ve generated from solar power means you will save money on your electricity bills because you will be using your own stored supplies which is cheaper. It also means you’ll have more energy independence, so you will be less impacted if energy prices increase.

Are there Other Ways to Make Use of Energy Storage Systems?

Most battery storage systems will let you monitor the use of your energy online, which can be useful when you want to check how much power you have gained from your PV panels.

It is also feasible to store energy taken from the grid on its reduced tariffs. That way you can benefit from the tariffs at times of day that might be more convenient to use it.

Will the Battery Storage Affect My Feed-In Tariff or Renewable Heath Incentive?

If you benefit from feed-in tariff (FIT) payments for a current renewable energy scheme, adding energy storage should not cause any issues. It’s always advisable to contact your FIT supplier to double check this.

Any payments you receive under the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI), are also unlikely to be affected by using a battery storage system.

How Much is Battery Storage Likely to Cost?

The price range for a 4kWh electric battery system is approximately £4,000 to £6,000.
