Solar Battery Storage
It wasn't long ago that households and businesses who had installed solar pv to their roofs were only able to optimise the use of the energy generated on a 'use it or lose' it basis. If the power was not consumed, excess energy generated would automatically be transferred to the National Grid. During the longer daylight hours British summertime, this is a regular occurrence.
There is an alternative, however, in the form of solar batteries. In the past, batteries were considered an expensive option to offset the loss of energy to the grid, however, there has been significant developments in battery technology in recent years, making them a viable and cost effective solution to energy storage.
The basic concept of solar battery storage is that the battery is charged using excess solar generated energy during the day, and the battery stored energy is then available to provide power during the evening. Systems can be sized which allows properties to be self-sufficient for the majority of the summer months.
Certain systems can provide a further add on benefit that the battery provides an automatic back up facility, meaning that certain circuits (such as downstairs sockets) can be protected against any mains grid outages, such as the one experienced in the Heswall, Wirral area in April 2016.
NES can offer a range of battery options, tailored to the needs of both domestic and commercial customers. We primarily operate in Liverpool, Wirral, Cheshire and North Wales.
