How electrical battery storage enhances solar PV

How electrical battery storage enhances solar PV

  1. Solar photovoltaic (PV) panels convert the sun’s light energy (photons) into direct current (DC) electricity.
  2. The current flows into an inverter which is used to convert the DC electricity into usable 240v alternating current (AC) electricity.
  3. The AC electricity is fed through a generation meter into your distribution board to supply power to your home or business.
  4. When solar generated electricity exceeds your immediate electricity demand a control system will divert the power to charge a battery.
  5. When your immediate electricity demand exceeds that which is being generated through your solar system, power will be drawn from the battery. This reduces your need to buy-in electricity from your energy supplier meaning you can use your own (solar generated) supply at any time of the day.
  6. Any surplus electricity (i.e. when the battery is fully charged) is fed back into the National Grid for use by others.
