Introduction:

As temperatures soar and the demand for electricity peaks, the need for sustainable and reliable energy sources becomes increasingly evident. Solar energy has long been hailed as a clean and renewable solution, but advancements in technology have now made it possible to not only harness the sun’s power during the day but also store it for use during the night. In this article, we explore the benefits of day and night solar energy storage systems and how they can lead to electricity credits on your bill.

The Rise of Solar Energy Storage:

Traditionally, solar panels generate electricity when exposed to sunlight, providing a valuable source of energy during daylight hours. However, the challenge has always been how to store excess energy for use when the sun isn’t shining. This is where solar energy storage systems come into play.

Day and Night Solar Energy Storage Systems:

Modern solar energy storage systems use advanced battery technology to store surplus energy generated during the day. These batteries, often lithium-ion or similar high-capacity cells, allow homeowners to access stored energy during periods of low sunlight, such as at night or during cloudy days.

Benefits of Day and Night Solar Energy Storage:

  1. Energy Independence:
    By storing excess energy, homeowners can reduce their dependence on the grid during peak hours or when solar generation is low. This promotes energy independence and ensures a constant power supply, even in adverse weather conditions.
  2. Cost Savings:
    Solar energy storage systems help homeowners save on electricity bills by utilizing stored energy during peak rate periods. Additionally, some regions offer incentives or credits for homeowners who invest in solar energy storage, further reducing overall costs.
  3. Reduced Environmental Impact:
    Utilizing stored solar energy reduces the need for conventional grid electricity, which is often generated from non-renewable sources. By relying on stored solar power, homeowners contribute to a lower carbon footprint and a healthier environment.
  4. Grid Support:
    Solar energy storage systems can also benefit the grid by providing additional power during high-demand periods. This can help stabilize the grid and reduce the risk of blackouts or brownouts.

Electricity Credits and Incentives:

Many regions offer incentives to encourage the adoption of solar energy and storage systems. These incentives may include tax credits, rebates, or even direct payments for excess energy fed back into the grid. Homeowners can potentially receive electricity credits on their bills, making the transition to solar even more financially attractive.

Conclusion:

The integration of day and night solar energy storage systems marks a significant step forward in sustainable living. Not only do these systems provide a reliable and constant energy supply, but they also contribute to cost savings and environmental preservation. As technology continues to advance and governments promote clean energy initiatives, investing in solar energy storage becomes not just a choice for environmentally conscious individuals but a smart financial decision with the potential for electricity credits and long-term savings. Embrace the power of the sun, store it for the night, and watch your energy bills decrease while contributing to a greener, more sustainable future.

What were Australian solar buyers wanting in a system in October 2020? The latest SolarQuotes auSSII report reveals all.

Solar System Capacity Selection

After reaching nearly 85% in September, interest (where capacity was specified) in 6kW or larger solar systems  sat at close to 84% in October – the first time we’ve seen the upward trend for this size range halted for quite some time. Interest in 6kW+ compared to 6kW was significantly higher in October: +12%. It was only a few months back when 6kW ruled the roost, but as we’ve previously mentioned both these options would be capturing interest for the “sweet-spot” choice of 6.6kW. That muddies the waters a little and is something we’ll address on the quoting form.

Solar system sizing selection in October 2020

PV Purchasing Timeframe

Australians were really eager to get solar panels installed on their rooftops sooner rather than later. Interest in purchasing a system immediately rose to 24% in October (September: 23%, August: 20%, July: 22%). The proportion of those using the SolarQuotes service considering a solar power system purchase any time from immediately to within three months also rose – 98% compared to 97% in September, August and July.

Solar system purchase intent  in October 2020

System Price Vs. Quality

As in September, approximately 12% of prospective buyers were wanting pricing on a “top quality” (most expensive) system in October. 80% were interested in a solar power package offering a good balance of quality and cost, while 8% were focused on a good quality budget system.

Advanced Solar Monitoring

Interest in advanced monitoring continued to fall in October, down to 47% compared to 49% in September, 63% in August and 69% in July. Learn more about the advantages of advanced solar monitoring.

Microinverter Option

A microinverter is a miniaturised inverter installed with each solar panel, taking the place of a single conventional string solar inverter usually used in a full system. The use of microinverters adds to the cost of a system, but the devices offer a number of advantages over a single string inverter setup.

In October, close to 13% of those using the SQ service expressed an interest in microinverters, compared to 14% in September, August and July.

“Battery-Ready” Option

Interest in battery-ready systems popped up a bit in October, at ~6% compared to ~5% in September. A home battery can be added to just about any existing PV system post-installation, but specifying storage may be wanted down the track can assist with system design.

Battery-ready PV interest in October 2020

Solar + Battery Installation

As in September, interest in installing a battery system at the same time as solar panels sat at a little under 13% in October. If you’re contemplating having a battery installed with your solar panels, crunch the numbers using SQ’s solar and battery calculator, which will detail how savings are impacted by energy storage and solar panels separately.

Battery Storage Capacity

Where a battery capacity preference was noted, here’s what Australians were interested in during October:

1 – 5 kWh: 17% (September ~14%, August 14%, July: 15%)
5 – 10 kWh: 49% (September ~51%, August 50%, July: 50%)
10 kWh +:  34% (September ~35%, August 35%, July: 34%)

61% of those interested in buying batteries were seeking advice on system sizing, a significant jump from September’s 55%.

Advanced Solar Consumption Monitoring interest during June 2020

Microinverter Option

Microinverter interest was again 14% in June. A microinverter is a miniature inverter that operates with a single panel instead of the more common arrangement of a single string inverter being used with multiple solar panels.

Microinverter interest during June 2020

Battery Ready Solar Systems

There was a significant drop in battery ready solar system interest in June – down to 8% from May’s 11% and April’s 12%. While all solar power systems can have batteries fitted, for some it’s easier than others and we ask this question on the quoting form to assist installation companies with system design.

Battery-ready system interest during June 2020

Solar And Battery Installation

Just under 9% expressed interest in a concurrent battery installation along with their solar panels in June, compared to 7% in May. This result when considered with the “battery ready” figures above indicate Australia’s solar battery storage revolution is still to really kick into gear among new system purchasers.

Concurrent solar + battery install - June 2020

Battery Sizing

For those who were considering a concurrent battery installation and had a size (capacity) in mind, 11% wanting pricing and details on 1-5kWh energy storage system, 54% for 5-10kWh and 32% for 10kWh+. More than half of all potential battery purchasers indicated they needed advice on selecting energy storage capacity.

Battery capacity - June 2020

Primary Battery Application

5% wanted a battery primarily for backup (6% May and 3% in April), while 37% were wanting a battery mainly for minimising grid use (35% in May, 36% in April) and 57% for both applications (59% in May and 61% in April).

Primary battery use indicated - June 2020

Quarterly Power Bills

Where power bill costs were indicated, 48% stated their quarterly electricity bills were between $500 and $1,000 on average, same as May.  Just under 10% were paying $1,000 or more – down on May’s 11% and April and March’s 12%.
