Battery Energy Storage systems store power, such as from solar panels or a power grid, to be used at another time. Storage can vary in capacity depending on the size and space that you need to power. Small systems can provide power to a household or small business, while larger systems can provide power to businesses or network providers.
Battery energy storage can be installed for multiple reasons including to maximise your self-consumption of solar power and reducing or eliminating your need to connect to the main power grid. Alternatively, some properties are not connected to mains power and require self-sufficiency. Purchasing grid-power is more expensive than solar, and so saving your own solar energy for night-time use is an efficient, clean, and cost effective approach to power use.
