Interest in solar installations with battery storage systems is rising because these systems reduce our dependency on utility companies. Thanks to technical advances and increased demand, battery costs are sinking fast. A battery storage system can increase on-site consumption by up to 70 percent. Batterie store surplus solar power for use at night, or during peak rate hours. This makes the systems very attractive for consumer.
California utilities have already said they want to pay homeowners less than 10¢/watt for solar energy sent to the grid, then sell the energy back to them at retail rates. Those rates could be as high as 40¢/watt. A battery storage system allows a homeowner to store that solar energy on-site and use it when they need it (at night, for example) or when energy rates are at their highest. This solution eliminates the need for utility reliance almost entirely.
“The utilities are really helping battery storage become more affordable with a faster ROI every time they raise time-of-use rates,” declared Solarponics VP Kristian Emrich during a keynote address at a recent Energy Storage Association conference.
Solarponics currently works with a number of battery storage manufacturers and integration partners. We are installing energy storage systems for the first wave of early adopters. The average payback time depends on the size and use of your system, but will range from 10-12 years. However, it's hard to put a value on the freedom you achieve by being truly energy independent.
