Everyone loves to save money, especially when it comes to power bills, which is why solar batteries are advantageous. Creating your own power means you will only need to draw electricity from the grid on times when you use more than you generate.
PEACE OF MIND
Solar batteries also provide you extra security during blackout periods, solar energy storage can keep the lights on and provide enough power to run your household appliances by drawing energy from your sun-charged batteries.
Solar energy storage is an environmentally friendly way to provide blackout protection for businesses or homes, and depending on the size of the system, it can provide power for a few hours or even days.
WHAT DETERMINES THE AMOUNT OF ENERGY THAT CAN BE STORED?
EPS (Emergency Power supply) which refers to a Solar PV System's ability to automatically or manually change over to powering your essential circuits from your battery storage system, in the case of a power cut.
How much energy can your solar system generate - time of year and your location
How much of that energy created are you consuming during the day
How large is your battery storage system
What is your demand during peak hours from end of daylight to midnight
13.5kWh - AC coupled domestic solar battery.
Being AC coupled it can be added to an existing solar system without the need for a separate solar battery inverter
Tesla Powerwall is a 14kWh battery with 13.5kWh of usable energy storage.
This is certainly enough to cover the energy load of an average Australian residential property overnight.
Pica Electrical is a qualified solar installer and is an approved Tesla Energy Installer.
SUNGROW SOLAR BATTERIES
WHY SUNGROW SOLAR BATTERIES?
Sungrow Battery Capacity
The battery is modular, coming in 3.2kWh modules. One unit can have a minimum of 3 modules (9.6kWh) and scale up to 8 modules (25.6kWh).
Once you hit the 8 modules max you can go bigger but you need another unit. Going beyond one unit is uncommon giving the sheer size you end up with but it is very achievable .
POWER FAMILY EVERYWHERE. MAKE SUNGROW BE YOUR SMART CHOICE

WHY ADD A SOLAR BATTERY?
SELF CONSUMPTION OPTIMIZATION
Self-consumption of renewable energy is the future.
As renewable generation subsidies decrease around the world and electricity prices increase it becomes more economical to consume the energy you generate yourself.
From family homes to commercial applications, we can design a system for your specific needs.
So you can keep your power on hand. As a consumer, you want to work with a quality product that you can add to in the future if your needs grow.
With the installation of solar panels on your home, you are planning ahead for energy production. But, have you considered what you will do with the excess energy your solar array produces?
Solar energy storage, also known as a solar battery, is one way to make use of this extra power. There are many benefits to having a solar battery in your home.
For example, if you have solar panels that are connected to the grid, you can use stored energy to offset self-consumption during peak grid periods.
Additionally, a solar battery can provide blackout protection, meaning if there is an outage on the grid, you will still have power. This can be vital for homes with medical needs.
So, is now the right time to add a solar battery to your home? The answer may be yes!
