SOLAR BATTERIES EXPLODE!
Solar battery installations are exploding..... IN POPULARITY. The first national audit held in February showed over 7000 home owners installed solar battery systems last year. It is expected that year that number will almost triple this year. But why is the there a battery boom?
After rolling blackouts through New South Wales & South Australia last year residential customers are all searching for a way to " keep the lights on" and Solar battery systems are giving customers a more secured and reliable power source.
Higher Self consumption
Having a solar batteries system will also ensure you bill is reduced further then just solar by itself, and is the only way to ensure you end up with a $0 dollar power bill. Instead of exporting electricity back to Ergon at 7 cents you can store this energy and maximize your solar energy!
Higher Safety + Smaller Batteries
When you generally talk to people about batteries for solar systems, they think of large heavy batteries, require heaps of room to store them. But this is no longer the case. Major advancements in technology have seen battery sizes shrink into nice compact modules, still boasting massive amounts of energy storage. Take a look at the LG CHEM RESU 10 pictured below, this battery can be wall or floor mounted and is 45cm's wide x 48cm high x 22cm's wide, which is not much larger then most solar inverters!
Lithium-ion batteries do not emit hydrogen gas like old-style lead acid batteries, and that reduces the chances of accidental explosions. The batteries have internatal computers monitoring multiple parts of the battery, including various temperature sensors to ensure the battery last as long as possible and to ensure safe limits are not exceeded.
Check out this a recent install we completed with an Australian Made Selectronic battery inverter, coupled with a LG CHEM RESU 10.
