Battery Storage

Understanding battery storage

Sunworks Solar is not currently able to provide grid-connected battery solutions and this page is for information only.

Traditional grid connected solar power systems are limited in that they can only provide electricity during the day and cannot provide power for your home during a blackout.

While solar production peaks during midday, power consumption is highest in the morning and evening. With energy storage, you can save the energy you produce for when you need it most.

Solar Battery Storage

Installing a solar battery storage system (also known as hybrid solar power) will enable your grid connected solar power system to provide electricity to your Brisbane, Sunshine Coast or Gympie home 24 hours a day via a suitably sized battery storage bank.

Your home will still be connected to the electricity grid which means you will be able to draw power from the grid in times of high demand and or low solar power production and conversely export surplus electricity to the grid in times of high solar power production.

SunWorks Solar Sunshine Coast offer a large range of quality off-grid battery storage solutions from small backup systems to the latest lithium-Ion battery solutions capable of providing power to your entire home. If you are considering going off-grid then please visit our off-grid page for more information.

Key Points to consider when purchasing a solar battery storage system

  • Will the system provide electricity to your home if the electricity grid fails? A lot of systems on the market today will not provide power during a power outage. This is not so important in suburban areas when power outages are not common but maybe important if you live in more rural areas.
  • How much power can the battery provide if the grid fails – some such as the sonnen can only provide a maximum of 1,300 watts whereas the LG Chem battery with either the SolarEdge StorEdge, Sungrow hybrid or SolaX can provide much more.
  • How much actual power will the system provide i.e. after the depth of discharge has been taken into account.
  • How many cycles will the batteries last for and how long is the warranty.

Testimonials

5 Star Review - The Sun WorksI had SunWorks Solar install solar for me in January 2019. At the time of investigating solar I had quite a few different organisations visit and inspect my property to give me their sales pitch. Some didn’t know what they were selling me, some I’m still waiting for a quote from. However Mike was totally different. It was obvious that he knew what he was talking about and not the to just get a sale. I felt completely confident in the information and products on offer. Mike’s knowledge was also spot on regarding the process and timeline for preparing for the feedback to the grid. Upon installation, I felt equally as confident in SunWorks install team led by Pete. Given the time which has passed since my install, I can confirm that the after sales service is just as good. How many services do you know follow up to see how everything is going months after installation. I can also say my neighbour, colleague from work and brother have also had their solar installed by SunWorks and are just as happy. Well done SunWorks, highly recommend!
