What is Solar Panel Battery Storage?
Battery storage, also known as solar batteries, provide you with a means of storing solar energy via an Electrical Energy Storage System (EESS). The EESS supplies a continuous source of free renewable energy that is not dependent on solar panels alone. The battery extends the life of your solar PV system by storing unused power for use when the panels are not producing electricity, such as at night or during a power cut. This helps reduce grid consumption and protect your home or business from future energy price increases.
Options for Solar Panel Battery Storage
Numerous battery storage options are available on the market from leading manufacturers, including Givenergy, Sonnen, Alpha ESS, Tesla, Sunsynk, Fox ESS, and Pylon Tech. Prices vary depending on the level of power storage and usage capacity, life span, and guarantee. There are also lithium-ion battery alternatives. A lithium-ion battery charges much faster and lasts longer than a traditional battery. It also has a higher power density for longer battery life and is smaller.
Advantages of combining battery storage with a solar panel system:
- Conserve energy for later use: Use more solar energy your panels produce. Homeowners can store electricity for use at night.
- Increased savings: You won’t need to use the national grid or an energy provider because you’ll be using stored electricity generated by your solar panels.
- Boost your energy independence: Become self-sufficient from the national grid and expensive energy providers.
- Reduce your carbon footprint: You will become less reliant on the carbon alternative as you consume more renewable energy.
Battery Storage Case Study
A solar energy PV calculator gives you an idea of the benefits you will see from installing a photovoltaic (PV) solar system.
A PV calculator quoted one of our clients he could generate 3,951 kWh of PV electricity a year. This figure looks good at face value, but that is electricity generated during the daylight hours with the peak between 12am to 3pm.
When asked if they would use the whole amount generated at the point of intake, it worked out the household would probably only use around one third, with the rest being fed back into the national grid. We pointed out that all the generated energy could be stored and used with battery storage. This means the 2,500 kWh used by the family during evenings are now sustainable and free.
It’s important to note that if you don’t have a battery bank for the predicted kWh you generate, the government will pay you a rate of 5.5 pence a kWh.

Solar panels are a simple, dependable technology that converts the sun’s energy into electricity.
If you generate more energy than your home requires, you are self-sufficient and will not draw power from the grid. The excess energy produced is used to charge a solar battery. When the sun goes down and the solar panels can no longer provide power, the battery kicks in and keeps you in power off-grid until it runs out.
Benefits of converting to Solar PV in your property
- Make your own electricity and reduce your reliance on the grid.
- Consume more clean energy instead of gas/coal/nuclear energy.
- Receive payment for any power exported to the grid.
- Free charging for electric vehicles (EV).
Domestic Solar PV has been popular in the UK since 2010 and is a very cost-effective way of lowering your energy consumption and bills.
Solar PV generates clean renewable energy, which significantly reduces your carbon footprint. You can also be compensated for exporting power to the national grid!
As of 2022 over a million properties in the UK have had Solar PV panels installed? Simple, tailor-made installation with little ongoing maintenance. Just worry-free bill reduction for your home.
Increase the value of your home and the EPC/efficiency, all while helping to save the planet.
