Solar Battery storage
You have decided to get on the green train and convert your home with a solar power energy system. First of all, way to go, and second, you need to know about solar battery storage. You will need to know many things as you change your way of thinking about the way you gather and use power in your home and this includes your thinking on batteries.
A battery storage system is essential to the completion of your solar energy kit. It will hold the energy saved up that you need to run electrical items in your home. The battery will store an excess collection of your solar energy collected.
The remaining power that you obtain, that is not being stored in your battery and not being used in your home, will be sent to your local power company by the use of an inverter. This inverter will send the power to your local company and they, in turn, will reduce your utility bill. In some cases, they will pay you for the energy that you send them.
A solar battery uses amp power. This size of the battery that you will need will depend on the size of your home and the size of your grid system. It will require a large enough battery for you to use. These types of calculations for amp hours used will determine your battery needs. There are also considerations for bank size of the battery and cycle rate.
With most home installation kits for solar energy, there will be estimates on the size of battery you will need for solar battery storage. This will depend largely on the size of your home. You can also tell by gauging what your current electrical use is.
In purchasing a kit you need to give the spec of your current usage to help determine your needs. Other factors will include if you are doing a full conversion or a partial one. The ability to know this in advance will help determine what battery will do the most effective job for the needs that your home has.
There is an initial cost for the system, which may or may not includes the solar battery storage, for your home installation. In purchasing your kit ensure what is included in the cost for the best pricing. Many contractor and retailers have bundles which include in the kit your inverter and your battery but this is not always the case. Check details to ensure you have everything you need to convert.
