Solar batteries are large energy storage units typically found outside a building that charge up during sunny periods if linked up to a solar PV system, or during the night from the grid if there are low energy demands.
The batteries’ Dynamic Firm Frequency Response (DFFR) will monitor and discharge the stored energy. The solar batteries themselves are made up of rechargeable lithium-ion, stored in smaller battery packs within the units.
Combining a battery with commercial solar panels for your business can help revolutionise your organisation’s energy management and carbon savings.
Battery storage can be used to:
- Reinforce or reduce your electrical requirements
- Generate revenue by offering grid services
- Provide backup power
- Capture excess exported energy from wind or solar
- In some cases, provide Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS).
