Solar batteries – Your energy, available when you need it

Solar batteries are one of the most talked about subjects in the solar energy industry at the moment. The popularity around batteries has grown due to the number of solar system owners who are receiving little to no feed-in-tariff (credit) for their excess solar power generated during the day, and who’d like to be able to store this energy for use at night – when they’re forced to pay a high price for their electricity.

Affordable solar batteries and charging solutions

At Solarbank we’re committed to providing high quality, affordable battery storage and charger solutions for our customers. In 2014 we exhibited one of the first lithium-ion home battery solutions to hit the Australian market at the Grand Designs Exhibition in Sydney. The German manufactured battery had a usable capacity of 4.5kWh and a price tag of around $13,000 installed. While the cost made it prohibitive, it was a turning point in the solar energy industry and was an example of what was to come.

Tesla Powerwall Released

When Elon Musk released the Tesla Powerwall to the world in April 2015, the excitement around solar batteries grew from being only within the solar industry to the community at large.

Just as Powerwall 1 was a game changer, Powerwall 2 has lifted the bar again putting powerful and efficient solar batteries within reach of even more Sydney homeowners.

Lithium-ion solar batteries are rapidly reaching the point where they make economic sense to retrofit to existing solar systems or include as part of a new system. There are now a variety of extremely reputable manufacturers offering excellent solutions at compelling price points.

We encourage our customers to be aware that in this emerging new market, filled with opportunity, there are many new battery systems we wouldn’t recommend due to improper testing and inadequate design considerations. We value our brand and our customers, and we’ll only ever recommend the best products available, which is why we only offer the top solar battery systems.

Solar Batteries – Tesla Powerwall 2 Home Battery

The Powerwall is a home battery system that turns your home’s solar panels into an all day resource – increasing self-consumption of solar – while also offering emergency backup in the event of an outage. Powerwall 2 enables more of your home’s electricity to come from solar, which enhances solar functionality, and reduces energy costs.

When solar panels produce more power than a home needs, the excess solar is sent back to the grid. Powerwall 2 enables a homeowner instead to capture and store excess solar energy produced during the day for use at night. The result is greater self-consumption of solar generation and reduced energy costs.
