Choosing the Best Solar Battery Storage System for Your Needs

As a homeowner, certain decisions need careful consideration, and this goes especially true when considering battery storage for a home solar energy system. 

A PV (photovoltaic) system consists of one or multiple solar panels paired with an inverter and often a battery, which allows homeowners to store and essentially own their excess energy and use as they see fit.

When selecting battery storage, it’s important to make sure that your setup has the goods to power your entire home – both in the event of an emergency and in everyday living as well. Below, Geneverse goes over some additional factors to keep in mind when selecting your battery storage system.

What Are Your Energy Requirements? 

You’ve decided to go solar and include battery storage – great job! Now the first step is to select a battery storage system that will address all of your energy needs. Calculate your average monthly/daily electricity consumption. Be aware of your peak usage times. Make sure to consider having ample backup power during outages. 

Battery Capacity

Battery capacity has to do with the amount of energy a battery has the ability to store. This is most typically measured in kilowatt-hours (kWh). You will need to choose a battery that has sufficient capacity that meets or even exceeds your daily usage as well as be flexible enough to accommodate fluctuations which are inevitable when it comes to solar generation. Larger capacity batteries will certainly offer higher amounts of energy storage but also often come at a higher cost.

Battery Chemistry

Solar batteries have different chemistries. For instance, some are lead-acid batteries, which are often more cost-effective but have been shown to have shorter lifespans than lithium-ion batteries. Lithium batteries tend to offer higher energy density as well as a longer life cycle. Keep in mind cost, performance, as well as durability when selecting your battery storage system. 

Warranty and Support

Since home solar is no small investment, it’s important to invest in companies and manufacturers that have strong customer support and stand by their products. Looks for comprehensive warranties that cover performance and longevity of the product. The longer the warranty, the better. 

Upfront Cost and Return on Investment

Obviously one important factor to consider when selecting your battery is upfront cost weighed against the long-term savings your solar energy system will give you over time. Make sure to factor in savings from lower electricity bills, financial incentives (such as tax credits or rebates), not to mention the value of having backup power during any sort of grid outages.
