Solar Battery Storage

What is a Solar Battery and what does it do?

Tesla-Charging-Ports-Solar-Battery
You can add a battery to your existing solar system or buy a system with battery pack included in it but lets take a look at what exactly solar batteries are:
A typical rooftop PV generates electricity for you to use. If you don’t use the excess electricity being generated it either goes to the grid for a small amount of feed in tariff or gets wasted. Also at night time when the sun is not shining you still need to pay a higher price than your feed in tariff for the power that you use.
What a solar battery does for you is that it sores the excess power generated by your solar system and stores it for future use. you can either use it during the day or during the night as per your convenience.
Now a days it not only gives a bigger bang for your buck but also with new upcoming technologies such as virtual power plant or energy trading platforms you can even trade your excess power when it is most required and create a passive income stream from your solar batteries.
With the rising EV car market batteries are becoming the new norm of the century as you can also reduce your fuel cost drastically between 70-90 percent.

How much solar energy can you store?

Straight answer to this question would be that it depends on the size of your solar battery and is relevant to the size of your solar PV. Popular battery sizes in Australia would be between from 5 KWh to 15 KWh. you can even start small and keep adding batteries as you require for yourself.
