Most Australian cities experience approximately 270 sunny days each year, making the use of solar power, in the form of renewable energy, a natural progression. However, most renewable energy produced requires storage.
Solar battery technology has evolved to such an extent that people can store significant amounts of renewable energy with ease. However, choosing the right batteries for your needs can seem like an overwhelming task.
The high ranking solar battery brands
LG Chem, which is the battery division of LG, is one of the leading producers of solar batteries in Australia. Their RESU main pack has a capacity of 6.4 kWh which can be expanded in increments of 3.2 kWh with the RESU expansion pack. However, the true test of the LG RESU battery pack is its versatility. These packs can be stored in your home or a semi-outdoor space like a garage or carport.
Sonnenbatterie is another popular option for those interested in solar power storage. Available in a variety of sizes ranging from 2kWh to 16kWh, these batteries have a built-in intelligence system that will help you achieve the ultimate savings by monitoring how and when the batteries store power. To make these batteries even more attractive, they have a modern design that will suit any home.
Another excellent solar battery, for individuals who wish to live sustainably, is the Tesla series of batteries. One of their most popular models is the Powerwall. This is a battery with a modern design that can be mounted on virtually any wall. Each Powerwall unit has a storage capacity of 6.4 kWh, with a 92.5% energy efficiency rating.
These batteries are easy to install and have an estimated lifespan of 15 years and come with a 10-year guarantee. However, it is important to note that the Tesla Powerwall does not include any inverters or power management system. If you are interested in this model you will need to consider the costs of these additional components.
