Battery Storage Kent
Using Solar photovoltaic (PV) systems is a great way of using a more sustainable energy source (as they use solar power which is renewable energy). The energy can be acquired and used in your home and office but to really make the most of using it, battery storage is vital.
What is a Photovoltaic System?
The very simple explanation of photovoltaic solar panel systems is that they transform the sun's power into usable energy for your home or business. Solar PV systems are comprised of solar panels which can either be attached to your roof or other convenient area (you can even have ground situated panels if roof space is scarce). When light shines on the panels, it is absorbed and transformed into electricity. You can then save money because you aren't using as much power from the UK National Grid and the power you are using is less damaging to the planet.
Why Use Solar PV Battery Storage?
Solar Panels create energy during the day, regardless of whether the sun is shining or not. Many people are not home during the hours that the solar energy is created, which means it will then be added to the National Grid instead of you using it. If you would rather make the most of the solar energy that you're creating, you can use a battery storage system, which means that you can save the energy that your panels create and use it at another time, when you are home.
Saving money on energy bills is becoming more and more important with increasing energy bills. Harnessing and using energy that you've created from your panels will save you money on your electricity bills because you're not using it from the National Grid. It will also give you more energy independence, so you will be far less affected by the energy prices because you will be using a lot of your own energy.
Are there Other Ways to Make Use of Energy Storage Systems?
Battery energy storage systems will often let you look at the use of your energy online and this can be beneficial when you need to check the quantity of power that you have acquired from your PV panels. You can also store energy from the National Grid at its reduced tariff, so if there is a cheaper tariff at night time, for example, you can store that energy in your battery and use it when you need to.
