What Are Solar Batteries?

Solar batteries are devices used to store energy from a solar photovoltaic (PV) system. They are very useful in storing excess electricity generated by the solar panels in a solar PV system to be used to power lights, appliances, and other electrically powered devices when there is a power outage or when the sun is down. The different types of solar batteries include lead acid, AGM, li-ion, LiFePo4 and saltwater. They can last anywhere from 5 to 15 years depending on the battery type as well as the total number of usage cycles, battery temperature, proper maintenance throughout its lifetime use. Solar batteries can be used for both grid-tied and off-grid solar power systems.

How Do Solar Battery Storage Work?

In any typical solar PV system, solar panels absorb sunlight and converts it to electricity. Any electricity surplus can be stored within a solar battery to use at a later time. Some batteries can be charged from grid electricity during off peak times when there is not much demand for power. Whenever there is power usage that is over the level that is produced by solar panels, the electricity stored in a solar battery can be used as an additional source of power to meet the demand of any premises. Once the energy stored in the solar battery is depleted, the system can revert back to the solar panels or grid electricity.

How To Choose The Right Solar Battery

The right solar battery must meet the performance requirements of a specific solar power system. There are many factors that need to be considered in choosing the right solar battery. These can include the amount of electricity a specific solar power system can produce and how much a premises will need to consume at any given time. When looking for the right solar battery, the most important things that need to be taken into consideration include battery size, energy capacity, roundtrip efficiency, battery lifetime, and safety features.
