Energy Storage,
What You Should Know

Solar energy storage is a critical aspect of harnessing renewable energy from the sun. It involves capturing excess energy generated by solar panels during sunny periods and storing it for later use when the sun is not shining.


Common storage technologies include batteries, pumped hydro storage, and thermal storage. Understanding solar energy storage is crucial because it enables homeowners and businesses to become more energy independent, reduces reliance on the grid, and ensures a stable power supply even during cloudy or nighttime conditions.


Advances in storage technologies and cost reductions have been driving the adoption of solar energy systems worldwide, promoting sustainable and environmentally friendly power generation.

Should You Get Energy Storage?

Deciding whether to get a solar battery for your home's solar energy system depends on several factors like the ones listed here. Additionally Helios Solar can conduct a thorough assessment of your energy needs and determine if a solar battery is the right choice for your specific circumstances.


Energy Consumption

Asses your energy consumption patterns. If you typically produce more solar energy than you consume during daylight hours, a solar battery can store excess energy for later use.


Grid Reliability

Consider reliability of your local grid. If you experience frequent power outages or have high electricity rates during peak hours, a solar battery can help you avoid peak pricing.


Energy Independence

If you prioritize independence and reducing your reliance on the grid, a solar battery can be a valuable addition, allowing storage of  excess energy for use during non-sunny periods


Financial Viability

Evaluate the cost of a solar battery system and the potential savings it can offer. Factor in any available incentives, tax credits, or net metering policies that may affect your decision.


Environmental Impact

If reducing your carbon footprint and contributing to a sustainable future are important to you, a solar battery can help by maximizing the use of clean, renewable energy.


Long-Term Plans

Consider your long-term plans for your home. If you plan to stay in your current residence for many years, investing in a solar battery can provide long-term benefits and energy savings.
