Store solar energy for when you need it
Solar PV production often reaches its daily peak when demand for electricity in the home is at its lowest – during the day while you’re out or at work – with the excess being exported to the grid.
Storing that energy in Solar Battery Storage for use when you need more power can bring you closer to 100% self-consumption (using all of your generated power) and reduce further your grid reliance, saving you more money!
How does Battery Storage work?
These systems constantly monitor your Solar PV production, your home energy usage and your battery storage levels. When usage is lower than the PV production your spare energy is directed into the batteries for storage.
When the demand in the property exceeds the available supply from the PV system the extra power required is then drawn from the batteries.
If you require more power than the PV system and the batteries can deliver at any given time, then you will just seamlessly draw power from the grid. There is no switching required, no loss of power, you won’t even notice.
Even better, if you have a flexible rate tariff (off-peak), you can set your batteries to top-up on cheap electricity and then use it during the day when electricity is much more expensive.
Redmile Energy can design, specify and install electricity storage packages to suit your needs. If you would like to discuss this further then please feel free to get in touch.
No solar, no worry!
Electricity storage is still for you
Electricity companies are moving to more flexible pricing plans, offering cheap power at off-peak times and charging more during peak demand times. So even if you don’t have a Solar PV system, Battery Storage can offer significant savings. You simply set the smart timer on your batteries to fill up on cheap electricity (usually at night) and then you can use all this cheap power during the day when electricity is much more expensive. If you require more power than the batteries can deliver at any given time, then you will just seamlessly draw the extra power from the grid. There is no switching required, no loss of power, you won’t even notice.Get in Touch Today
