Having a solar battery in Australia maximises the benefits of abundant sunlight, providing reliable energy storage and increased energy independence.

What is a Battery and How Does it Work?

What is a Battery and How Does it Work?

A solar battery is an energy storage device that stores the electricity generated by solar panels for later use. By storing excess solar energy, solar batteries provide a reliable and consistent power supply, even when the sun isn’t shining. This enhances energy independence and efficiency, making solar energy systems more effective and versatile.


  1. Solar Panels Generate Electricity: Solar panels convert sunlight into direct current (DC) electricity through the photovoltaic effect.

  2. Inverter Converts DC to AC: The DC electricity is converted into alternating current (AC) electricity by an inverter, making it usable for household appliances and systems.

  3. Excess Energy is Stored: When the solar panels generate more electricity than is needed, the excess energy is stored in the solar battery instead of being sent back to the grid.

  4. Battery Discharges When Needed: During periods when the solar panels aren’t producing enough electricity (such as at night or during cloudy days), the stored energy in the battery is discharged to supply power to the home or business.

  5. Energy Management System: Many solar battery systems include an energy management system that monitors energy production and usage. This system optimizes when to store energy and when to use it, ensuring maximum efficiency and cost savings.

  6. Backup Power Supply: Solar batteries can also provide a backup power supply during grid outages, offering increased energy security and peace of mind.


Advantages of a Battery

  • Back Up Power: Ensure continuous power during outages and emergencies
  • Energy Independence: Reduce reliance on the grid and generate your own power. 
  • Cost Savings: Save solar power you don’t use during the day, use it at night instead!
  • Remote Monitoring: Easily track and manage your energy usage with smart apps and systems. 
  • Increased Home Value: Enhance the value of your home with modern, energy efficient technology. 
  • Grid Stability: Help balance the load on the electrical grid and reduce peak demand. 
  • Environmental Impact: Decrease carbon footprint by utilising renewable energy sources.
