What is Solar Battery Storage and How Does it Work?
The main advantage of solar battery storage is the ability to take the energy generated by Solar Panels during the day and store it to power your home in the evening and overnight. Through our relationship with Moixa, we are excited to afford Energia customers a tailored solution for your home.
How does solar battery energy work?
Solar Panels generate renewable energy during the day and this energy is used to supply electricity to your home. With energy prices generally thought to be under pressure, it makes sense to try and use as much of the electricity solar panels are producing as possible, sending it back to the grid only at desirable times. Battery storage makes this all possible. The excess energy your home is not currently using goes into charging your Moixa Smart Battery, so instead of sending the excess electricity back to the grid, you store it in a battery that can then discharge and power your appliances when the sun isn’t shining or sending it to the grid when it is beneficial to do so.
