BATTERY SYSTEM CERTIFIED INSTALLER IN MELBOURNE

Make your solar system useful for days when there will be no sunlight with the battery storage system.

Store the power generated by your solar panels

Solar panels are great for converting the suns energy to usable electricity during the day however battery systems can store it to be used when the sun goes down or when it gets cloudy. Minimise your reliance on the grid by integrating a battery system, helping to create a self-powered home.

Store your solar energy for darker days in battery banks

Solar batteries are responsible for accumulating electrical energy, storing it, and providing solar energy when the solar panels are no longer producing electricity as in the case of days with little sun or when it is night and the solar panels are not generating solar energy.

Lower your energy costs

By storing excess energy generated during the day, a battery system makes it available any time that you need it, reducing the power you draw from the grid and allows you to protect yourself from the cost of rising energy bills.

Help reduce your environmental impact

By creating a self-powered home, you are minimising your impact on the environment by generating and storing your own energy from the sun instead of relying on the grid. A battery storage system assists in creating a sustainable energy solution.

Seamless power backup

Having a battery storage system not only reduces your reliance on the grid, it acts as a backup power source in the event that there are any grid outages. The battery storage system will detect any issues and seamlessly become your home’s main power source.

Smart energy technology

Control and monitor your battery storage system from anywhere via your tablet or smartphone with a smart app. See how much charge your battery has at any point in time from home or work.

What types of solar batteries do we offer at Switch on Solar?

Stationary Batteries:
Refer to batteries with a high number of charge and discharge cycles. They are sold using 2-volt batteries that make up the battery with a minimum of 12 volts. In this type of solar battery, we find lead-acid solar batteries and gel solar batteries.
Gel Solar Batteries:
Gel batteries, despite not adequately withstanding high temperatures, heat, or deep discharges, endure between 500 and 1000 cycles with a useful life of approximately 4-8 years depending on their care, and type of installation. It is important to mention that Gel Solar Batteries do not need maintenance. Battery banks with Gel Batteries are required to have an installation with adequate ventilation and a cooling system.

AGM batteries:
AGM batteries are a more technological version of solar gel batteries, therefore it has a strengthening of at least 1,000 life cycles. AGM solar batteries have an average useful life of 8 to 10 years depending on the installation, use, and care of AGM solar batteries.

Lithium Batteries:
Lithium solar batteries are the best solution in the battery bank. They have excellent performance, a much longer useful life compared to other types of solar batteries and their main advantage is that they do not generate any type of gases. Lithium batteries for solar energy have modern designs and at Switch On Solar, we have different models of lithium batteries for solar energy systems.
Lead Acid Batteries:
Lead-acid batteries are also popular under the name “Open Lead Batteries” and these are the most common in the battery market in Australia. Lead solar batteries are made up of positive and negative plates. Lead-acid batteries for solar energy systems are charged by a liquid called sulfuric acid. These types of batteries require periodic maintenance since the sulfuric acid they incorporate evaporates with use.

How to choose the solar battery you need?

To correctly choose the solar battery bank you require, you must take into account the following:

Usage

You should be clear about how much battery your bank will use. This way you will be able to calculate the approximate useful life in each type of battery and thus correctly choose the type of solar batteries you need.

Location

you need mobile solar batteries that you can move from one place to another or they will remain fixed.

Budget

When you buy solar batteries the price factor is very important since it will determine the quality of batteries that you can obtain. What you should keep in mind is that the higher the budget, the higher the performance and the longer the useful life..

Maintenance

There are solar batteries that require maintenance and there are others that do not. You must pay attention to this detail since if you decide on solar batteries that have periodic maintenance you must commit to doing it properly since its useful life will depend on you doing it correctly. Maintenance-free solar battery models tend to stand out as the option chosen by users due to their operation and carefree maintenance.

Power

The power that solar batteries can offer largely depends on the price they have. There are 2V solar batteries up to 48V batteries. You must know what your power requirement is for your home. This will be your compass to correctly choose the battery bank you need.
