New Solar Battery Storage Technology – Utilizing the suns power, even when it’s not shining!
Installing solar panels on your property allows you to easily take advantage of solar energy as a renewable source to power your home, helping your home become greener, lowering carbon emissions, and cutting electricity bills. There have now been advances in solar technology, and greater solar capacity in Scotland, meaning you could be saving up to 70% on electricity bills, and even more if your home can become energy dependant! This is due to the new battery storage technology that is available allowing you to store energy generated throughout hours of daylight and store it for use whenever it is needed.
How does this work?
Solar panels alone are an effective way to save money by generating electricity to power your home from the suns UV rays. There is a common misconception that solar panels will only work in full sunshine, however this is not the case and solar panels will create energy during all day light hours even if it is cloudy. The only time that panels will not generate power is after sunset when it is dark. During these hours, you still need energy for your home, and so typically at night-time you will still purchase electricity from an energy provider. This is where the power of battery storage systems come into play, and you can avoid this problem. When installed with solar panels, a storage battery will convert any unused energy generated from daylight into AC power and store it, ready for use whenever you need it. This means your solar panels can essentially charge the battery when you do not need the energy that they are generating and save it for later use. This technology allows homes to be completely energy independent – not relying on the national grid for electricity and therefore not paying a penny at times! Even better, you will have full control over your home’s energy, and always have power by avoiding grid interruptions or outages.

Main Advantages of Utilising Solar Energy
There are many advantages of utilizing solar technology but here are our top 3:
- 1. Reduce your electricity bills – You could slash bills by up to 70%!
- 2. Shrink your carbon footprint – Solar energy is a clean renewable source, and by using it to power your home, you will be playing your part in the fight against climate change by cutting on carbon emissions.
- 3. Easy to install – The installation process for solar panels is straight-forward and usually only takes 1 day.
As we steer towards a sustainable carbon-free future, we urge people to get involved in home renewables and solar battery technology is an impressive and exciting way to do so and save money at the same time! Even better, installing with Greener Energy Group means you will be offered a free EV charger (Link to PV page) supplied and fitted at no cost, so you can prepare for the electric future and eventually use your own energy to power both your home and car.
It is important to understand that the angle and direction of your roof will determine how much energy you can expect to generate. There are a range of systems available however which can optimise your solar panels to best suit your property’s needs. Find out how much you could save with a free home assessment.
