Energy Storage for Homes

Energy storage technologies are essential to speed up the replacement of fossil fuels with renewable energy. Battery storage systems will play an increasingly pivotal role between green energy supplies and responding to electricity demands.

Energy storage devices allow homeowners to store energy that has been generated by their solar PV system to then be used at the time they need it most. This could be in the darker colder times of the year as people usually use more electricity around that time.

Energy storage systems for homes, also known as home energy storage or residential energy storage, allow homeowners to store excess energy generated by renewable sources such as solar panels, and use it later when it is needed. There are several types of energy storage systems for homes, including:

Lithium-ion Batteries

These batteries are widely used in energy storage systems for homes because of their high energy density and long lifespan. They can be integrated with solar panels and connected to the grid to provide backup power during outages.

Lead-acid Batteries

These batteries are a more affordable option, but they have a shorter lifespan and lower energy density compared to lithium-ion batteries.

Flow Batteries

These batteries use liquid electrolytes and can provide a longer lifespan than lithium-ion batteries. But they are relatively expensive and less common for residential use.

Compressed Air Energy Storage

These systems use compressed air to store energy, which is then released to generate electricity when needed. They are less common for residential use.

It’s worth noting that energy storage systems can be integrated with smart home technologies and can provide homeowners with more control over their energy usage, help them save money on electricity bills, and increase the reliability of the power supply.

Tesla Powerwall Home Battery

Future proof your home by combining solar energy and Tesla Powerwall 2 to independently power your home day and night. During the day, solar panels may produce more energy than your home uses. Powerwall stores that excess solar energy and makes it available on demand, even after the sun has set. Through the Tesla app, you will have full visibility into your self-powered home.

Powerwall’s cutting edge Backup Gateway automatically protects your home in the event of a power outage and will restore power to your home in a fraction of a second. You will not even notice that the power went out with lights and appliances able to run without interruption. If you have solar and Powerwall, then solar energy will continue to power your home and recharge Powerwall. Without Powerwall, solar will shut down during an outage.

Powerwall is a completely automated system that installs easily and requires no maintenance offering homeowners complete peace of mind. Genfit have been recognised by Tesla as one of their top UK Certified Installers scoring close to 100% in all our Tesla Installation audits.

Solaredge Batteries

Solaredge offers several battery options for their StorEdge system, including some with a storage capacity of 10 kWh or higher. However, it’s important to note that the specific battery capacity that you’ll need for your solar energy system will depend on factors such as your energy usage patterns, the size of your solar panel array, and your budget.

The Solaredge StorEdge system is compatible with various battery brands and models, including the LG Chem RESU, the BYD Battery-Box LV, and the Tesla Powerwall 2. Each of these batteries has a different storage capacity and price point, so you’ll want to work with a qualified installer to determine the best option for your specific needs.

It’s also worth noting that the Solaredge StorEdge system is designed to be expandable, meaning that you can add additional batteries in the future if you find that you need more storage capacity.

Benefits of Having Energy Storage for your PV System

Increased Energy Independence

Energy storage allows homeowners to store excess energy generated by their PV system during the day and use it later when it is needed, which can decrease their reliance on the traditional power grid.

Increased Self-Consumption

Energy storage allows homeowners to use more of the energy generated by their PV system, rather than sending it back to the grid and receiving a lower rate of compensation.

Backup Power

Energy storage can provide backup power during outages, which can be especially useful in areas with a high risk of power outages.

Increased Reliability

Energy storage can ensure that a homeowner has a consistent supply of power, even if the traditional power grid is down.

Economic Benefits

Energy storage can help homeowners save money on their electricity bills by reducing the amount of energy they need to purchase from the grid. Additionally, some states offer rebates and tax incentives for homeowners who install energy storage systems.

Time-Of-Use Management

Energy storage can help you manage your energy consumption based on time of the day, to utilize the energy during peak hours and save money.

Improved Grid Management

 Energy storage can help balance the grid by releasing stored energy during peak demand, which can help prevent brownouts and blackouts.
