Solar Battery Storage Systems

Completing Your Renewable Energy System

At Apollo Solar Company, we specialize in everything related to solar energy. We make sure that our customers experience a smooth transition to a 100% renewable energy system. In many cases, this requires the use of a solar battery system to ensure homeowners have access to the renewable energy they need at all times. 

Solar panels work by capturing sunlight and converting it into electrical energy. The solar cells in the panels absorb the photons from the sunlight, exciting electrons, which are then harnessed as energy. This electricity is then sent to an inverter, which converts it to a usable form of energy that powers your home.

What is Solar Battery Storage?

Solar battery storage systems are stand-alone energy storage units that store energy generated by the solar panels and can be used when the solar panel system is not producing energy. These batteries will typically have a built-in inverter and can be used to power appliances and devices during blackout or grid failure. 

In normal circumstances, solar panels will convert sunlight into energy, and when the sunlight is unavailable, the batteries can be used to supplement the energy output. Battery backup systems can provide a reliable energy supply when the solar panel system is disrupted due to weather, grid failure, or other problems.

What Are The Components of a Solar Battery Storage System?

A good solar battery storage system typically consists of several components. The first is a battery bank. This is typically made up of multiple batteries connected in series, which store the energy generated by the solar system. Additionally, a solar inverter converts the DC current from the battery to AC current, enabling it to be used in a home. Finally, a solar charge controller monitors and regulates the voltage, current, and temperature of the connected batteries.

What Types of Batteries are Used in Solar Systems?

Battery backup systems come in several different types, including lead-acid, gel-based, flooded, and lithium-ion.

Lead-acid batteries are the most commonly used in battery backup systems. They are durable and require minimal maintenance. Gel-based batteries are more expensive but can handle higher temperatures and are more reliable in long-term use. Flooded batteries are more affordable but require regular maintenance and are less reliable than other types. 

Lithium-ion batteries are the newest technology and are becoming more popular for their increased energy density and lower self-discharge rate. They are more expensive but also more efficient and require minimal maintenance.

What Are the Benefits of Having a Solar Battery Storage System?

By installing a solar battery storage system, you can ensure that your energy supply will be reliable and consistent even in the face of disruptions to the solar panel system. 

Solar battery storage systems provide several benefits such as uninterrupted energy supply during grid failure or when the solar panel system stops producing energy. This ensures that your home or business continues to operate and reduces operational costs associated with downtime. 

Solar battery storage systems also enable you to take advantage of the surplus energy produced by the solar panel system. By storing the excess energy generated by the solar panels, you can tap into it when needed and save costs by relying less on traditional electricity sources. 

Finally, investing in a solar battery storage system can increase the value of a property as it makes your solar panel system more complete.
