Store surplus energy

PV Battery Storage

  • Increase self-use from 25%-35% to in excess of 80%.
  • Protect against increasing energy prices.
  • Reduce grid stress by reducing your solar power feed.
  • Protect against power outages.

Solar PV systems generate energy during the day, powering your appliances at the point of demand. However, when production exceeds the load demand, this energy is exported to the grid – meaning that on average, as little as 25% of the free energy generated is used within the home.

By adding batteries to a solar PV system, this surplus energy can be stored and used when it is needed – this can be during the day or overnight. This has no implications for the feed-in tariff which is paid based on generation, not export.

How It Works

Take Control

  • Generate solar energy
  • Consume the energy directly within the property
  • Store surplus energy in the batteries for later use
  • Use the stored energy when load demand exceeds production
  • Feed any excess energy to the grid
  • Receive additional payments via 3rd party grid trading scheme
  • Monitor system performance remotely via app or web portal

AC-Coupled Storage

There are two possible solutions for domestic storage systems – AC or DC coupled.

AC-coupled systems are recommended as a retrofit solution (for those who have PV installed). There is no impact of FIT revenues for those on a high rate (owing to charge/ discharge efficiency losses) and no need to replace the existing DC inverter. They also open up the possibility of charging batteries from the grid to exploit peak/off-peak price differentials and therefore can be installed without PV. AC-coupled systems can also be used with new PV installations and provide the most flexible solution in terms of siting batteries and for grid-trading purposes.
