Our cost-effective battery packages enable you to produce and store your own energy without having to rely on the energy grid.
Do you currently have solar, but you still receive an energy bill? 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. Completely eliminate your energy bill with solar batteries.
To store the energy your solar system generates for future use, batteries are required. In the past, the cost of these batteries has been too high to make it a viable option for most Australian homes, but things have changed!
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 a free energy assessment at your place and a no obligation quote.
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 backup power when needed, reducing energy costs at times of peak usage. Mains grid electricity consumption can be reduced by up to 100% with a solar system which includes battery storage.

“Luke and his team of two men arrived at my place in Hervey Bay around eightish on the morning of Tue 9/2/21. After intros they got stuck into it as a team with the three of them know exactly what they had to do:
- Remove 7 x old panels and their operating equipment.
- Replace with 18 new panels and associated operating equipment and a Tesla battery system.
By 11 am they were finished, all cleaned up, and ready to return home.
This is the second time I have used Halcol and would not hesitate in recommending them to anyone.
Thank you all.”

A solar battery is a perfect way to break free from rising energy prices for good. In a typical solar installation without a battery, the solar energy your panels produce must be used instantly. If it isn’t used, it is diverted to the national grid, and while electricity retailers give you a credit for the excess solar you provide, it’s not the same as the credit you’d receive by not using an electricity retailer at all.
By installing a solar battery, all the excess power you generate is held in storage for later use. So, when the sun stops shining, you’ll still have some leftover power to use during the evening. How much you have depends on the size and capacity of the battery, and also on how much energy your panels produce.
When your solar panels stop producing energy (when the sun goes down), your solar inverter automatically identifies that you have energy stored in your battery. This way, your home runs on solar energy even when the sun isn’t shining.
If you’d like to know more about how you can benefit from a solar panel and battery package, we’d love to hear from you here at Halcol Energy.
When you buy a solar and battery package from Halcol Energy, you get everything you need to break free of electricity retailers for good. Firstly, there are three main components:
- Solar panels
- Solar inverter
- Solar battery
The solar panels are fixed to your roof, and in some cases may be mounted to achieve the optimum angle and positioning. Your solar panels are responsible for taking the solar energy from the sun and sending it to your inverter.
Your solar inverter converts solar energy to usable energy for your home. The inverter has a certain capacity, meaning it can only convert a certain amount of power at any given time. So, if you have high consumption periods, you may need a larger inverter.
Without a battery, any excess energy your system generates would be fed back into the national grid and you’d receive a credit on your electricity bill. However, the amount is rather small, so if you really want to harness all of the savings on offer, you’ll need battery storage.
The solar battery holds excess energy produced by your solar panels during the day. That way, when the sun goes down you can still use your solar energy to power your home at night.
Choosing the right battery is easy when you have a little help, and we’re a helpful bunch here at Halcol Energy. Part of our quoting process is to analyse your historical energy consumption. This gives us an idea of how and when you use the most power. As a result, we can recommend the very best system for your needs.
Ideally, your solar battery needs to hold enough energy to power your home for all of the hours the sun isn’t shining. That means you need to have enough solar panels and a capable inverter to handle your power generation needs. So, when choosing a solar battery, make sure that it can store and release the power you need when you need it.
Of course, you also want to check for quality. Reputable products such as the Tesla Powerwall are always a good bet, however, they do have a higher price tag. At Halcol Energy, we only partner with strong brands and we choose the products we sell based on quality, performance and reputation. So, whether you choose the Tesla Powerwall or a more affordable option, you’re going to get quality products from Halcol.
Installing a solar panel and battery package is the best way to slash your energy bills. In fact, you can slash your energy bills with a standard on-grid solar package. When you bring a battery into the equation, you can almost completely rid yourself of energy bills.
You also get the peace of mind that you’re covered in the event of a power failure in the national grid. While everybody else is reaching for the candles and torches, you’ll be enjoying a fully-powered house thanks to your solar system.
Naturally, the other benefit is to the environment. Switching to solar means you don’t rely so heavily on the national energy grid. While things are improving in this space, our national energy network is still largely powered by coal-burning power plants and fossil fuels. So, if you want to make a difference to the planet, switching to clean, green and free solar energy from the sun is the way to go.
A solar battery is basically about freedom. With the right solar panel and battery package, you can completely eliminate power bills from your life. Plus, you’ll be doing it in a way that’s much healthier for the planet and future generations.
