What Are Solar Batteries & Why You Should Be Using Them
Have you ever found yourself in the supermarket looking for a new set of batteries? Most likely the answer to this question is yes. You know exactly what you were looking for, how many you needed, the size of the battery and of course, the different brands available.
With over 500 million batteries used in Australia in 2010, the majority of these batteries were used in small hand-held devices. 15 million were conventional car lead acid batteries and around 7 million were of larger batteries. Batteries are being used in all types of applications and keeping up with new technology and essentially what powers them is becoming ever more difficult.One new type of battery that directly impacts us all is Solar Batteries.
So what do they look like? What brands are the best? How much do they cost? How many do I need? Why are the important? These are some of the questions you may be asking, and we have the answer.
Many existing solar-powered electricity households are looking to store their excess solar energy for later use. This is in high demand, and of course, why wouldn't they be? Who really wants to give their excess electricity generated by their solar panels back to the electricity providers for next to nothing? They'll then be required to pay a significant amount for the same electricity later that night? This just doesn't make much sense.
The Rise of Solar Battery Storage
In recent years, there has been a dramatic rise in battery offerings in the market. From battery sizes, brands, pricing and types. So how do we know which solar battery storage would work best? The answer is actually more complicated than it needs to be. You'll first need to find out what type of battery is right for your home, much like how there are AAA batteries and AA batteries. A set of AA batteries would not fit into a AAA-powered application. This applies the same solar battery storage.
Secondly, what we'd need to determine is the quantity of batteries needed. Would there be enough sufficient electricity generated to charge each battery? What happens during winter when there isn't enough solar energy to charge the batteries? Each question seems to create another question, and these questions aren't typical questions you can simply Google.
So before you rush out and buy new solar storage batteries, make sure you get all the relevant information needed in order to make a well-informed choice.
