Popularity of solar power has led to the rise of solar batteries that can store extra solar power for later use. Solar batteries are the backbone of any efficient solar panel system. Without the batteries, the system is powerless. Batteries store the energy produced by solar panels, allowing the energy to be used as needed through an inverter.Solar batteries work by converting the DC energy being produced by your solar panels and storing it as AC power for later use. Higher the battery’s capacity, more solar energy it can store.
When you install a solar battery as part of your solar panel system, you are able to store excess solar energy. If solar panels are producing more electricity than you need, the excess energy goes towards charging the battery. Later, when solar panels aren’t producing electricity, appliances get the energy stored in battery. You’ll only send electricity back to the grid when your battery is fully charged, and you’ll only draw electricity from the grid when your battery is depleted.
