SOAKING UP THE SUN­SHINE

Central and North Burnett Times - - FRONT PAGE -

SO­LAR pan­els and en­ergy sys­tems go hand in hand with bat­tery stor­age.

Stored en­ergy al­lows you to ac­cess ex­cess so­lar en­ergy dur­ing the night.

Most house­holds use a hy­brid sys­tem, where bat­tery stor­age is used while your prop­erty still con­nects to the grid.

Ac­cord­ing to So­lar Quotes, un­less you’re liv­ing in an area that can’t eas­ily ac­cess the near­est en­ergy grid, hy­brid sys­tems are ac­tu­ally much cheaper.

Hy­brid sys­tems will pri­ori­tise us­ing up the en­ergy stored in the bat­ter­ies, and there­fore won’t use up a lot of elec­tric­ity from the grid.

With an in­crease in the mar­ket re­duc­ing costs, now might be the per­fect time to look into your lo­cal bat­tery stor­age op­tions.
