We rely on the sun for numerous reasons, and for home solar energy systems this goes especially true. As technology continues to advance in the solar energy realm, homeowners are now able to take advantage of solar power options that help them harness and store valuable power that comes straight from the sun.
Below, Geneverse goes over the benefits of adding battery storage to home solar power systems and how battery storage can help our customers and readership store usable power at home to use during emergencies and even under normal, everyday circumstances.
True Energy Independence
A notable advantage of opting for battery storage for home solar is energy independence. While solar energy systems of the past fed surplus electricity back to the energy grid, forcing home solar owners to use the grid when the sun didn’t shine, battery storage gives you the ability to use stored energy at night time or during peak times of demand.
Battery storage will instantly reduce reliance on the grid while providing a reliable power source – even during emergencies and power outages.
Shrink Monthly Energy Bills
Relying less on power from the energy grid will lower your monthly energy bills. You can take advantage of net metering programs in your area and receive cost-saving credits for energy sent back to the grid.
You can also customize your settings with many solar energy systems with battery storage in order to use stored energy during peak usage times. When grid energy is in peak demand (such as in the early evening when many people are home from work), usage costs more in many areas of the country. If you live in an area that incorporates time-of-use pricing and/or demand-related charges, you can sidestep costly energy bills. By relying on your stored energy you can avoid using grid energy when it costs the most.
Reduce Carbon Footprint
Using clean solar energy is better for the environment than using dirty grid energy. By generating and using solar energy you can help reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Adding home solar battery storage that works alongside your solar panels reduces or eliminates dependence on electricity which is generated from fossil fuels.
Reduce Stress on the Energy Grid
As you join the ranks of solar energy beneficiaries, you’ll help reduce demands on the energy grid, which will benefit you and your surrounding community. You can store excess energy and release it to the grid during times of high demand, improving overall grid reliability.
Own Your Power
Battery storage will help guarantee backup power during outages and disasters. No matter the circumstances, pairing battery storage with home solar will give you control over your own power supply in good times and during unforeseen circumstances.
Battery storage will help you protect your food supply and ensure you never suffer the effects of loss of heating/cooling systems in your home. You’ll also be able to use crucial appliances and medical devices rain or shine.
Boost Property Value
Home solar with battery storage may also increase the value of your home and will serve as a prime selling point if you ever look to sell your home. Renewable energy features such as solar panels and battery storage are increasing in demand and are by now considered highly desirable attributes for potential buyers.
Battery storage can certainly render your property more valuable and more appealing as far as the real estate market is concerned.
