Solar storage that works in-line with the grid
In simple terms, Grid Coupled Solar PV Battery Storage is where you add a battery set to a regular Solar PV System. It can be installed as a retro-fit battery storage system to add to an existing solar panel array or as a part of a new solar panel installation.
The batteries store the electricity that your solar panels generate. You can then use that power at night, during the daytime or in the event of a power-cut. The grid coupled system will also keep the solar panels working and charging the batteries even if there were to be a power cut.
The grid interactive system is scalable. You can, pretty much have any size of storage capacity. A typical domestic system costing around £4,500-£5,500 will be able to store between 3-6kWh’s of useable storage.
The batteries come with a 5 year warranty and it is possible to extend this to 10 years for an additional fee.
