Use your solar at night
People often wonder why they should pay for Sunshine Coast solar installations when they still receive a power bill for energy they use when the sun isn’t shining. This is because on-grid solar systems allow you to use power as you generate it, but there’s no way to store it for future use.
To store the energy your solar system generates for future use, batteries are required. Until recently, the cost of these batteries has been too high to make it a viable option for most Australian families, however Halcol has good news!
Thanks to improved technology and decreasing prices, becoming energy independent is now a realistic option for Australian households. If you think you’re ready to give the energy companies the flick, contact our solar experts today. We can provide free, no obligation quotes on the best battery and solar energy Sunshine Coast households can wish for.
Lithium-ion battery advantages
Compared to other battery components, lithium-ion batteries have distinct advantages. Lithium-ion batteries have a higher power density giving longer battery life; they are much lighter with a lower discharge rate. They power many types of devices, such as electric cars, mobile phones, computers and power tools, providing a longer life cycle.
Home battery storage systems
With the current up-turn of the residential solar market, and the introduction of new home energy storage solutions to the Australian market, such as the Tesla Powerwall, the sonnenBatterie, which allow the householder to store energy generated during off peak hours, and to use stored battery back-up power when needed, reducing energy costs at times of peak usage. Mains grid electricity consumption can be reduced by up to 90% with a Sunshine Coast solar installation, plus battery storage.
