Power outages have become more frequent, thanks to an aging electric grid and increases in extreme weather. Power outages can make our homes dark and uncomfortable and cause huge disruptions to our daily life.
As a result, many homeowners are seeking solar systems with batteries to keep the lights on. Here are four benefits that batteries can support to help you determine if battery storage may be a wise investment for you.
Gain greater energy security
Suppose you live in an area where the grid is a bit unstable, or you want to provide a greater level of certainty for your home’s power. In that case, a battery system might be capable of powering critical parts of your home for a short period of time, even if the grid goes down. And Australia is prone to major fires, floods, and storms. Generating your own electricity could mean less exposure to price hikes and outages caused by natural disasters.
You can find your energy storage solution at ZRGP, including batteries, inverters, integrated energy storage systems, etc.
Get more value from your solar panels
With battery storage, you can power your home from the excess electricity that solar panels produce. This way there is no need to draw on energy supplied from the grid when production falls short from your panels. You just use the power stored in your solar batteries.
Reduce your electricity bills
One of the best ways to virtually eliminate your electric bills is by installing a solar panel system. If you live in an area with time-of-use rates, the cost of electricity varies throughout the day.
The utility company charges higher prices when power demand is high to encourage residents to curtail use. Having a solar battery allows you to save even more on your utility bills during these times. When electricity rates are highest, you can either use power from your solar panels or batteries, saving money.
Gain greater energy independence
As energy prices rise and concerns about decarbonization mount, many families want to reduce their reliance on fossil fuels and electric companies.
Although solar panels provide greater energy independence, they don’t generate electricity around the clock. Having battery storage solves this challenge and makes solar energy available 24/7. It can increase your energy independence and renewable energy use while still allowing you to enjoy reliable power.
ZRGP advanced lithium-ion batteries use cutting-edge technology to provide standby power with or without solar panels. They provide electricity during blackouts, at night, or when utility rates are highest, for true energy independence. Battery storage can be installed with new or existing solar systems to help you get the most value from your solar investment.
