What Are Solar Batteries
Solar panel batteries store excess electricity made during the day when the sun is out and allow you to use them later when you need the electricity. They are sometimes called “deep cycle batteries.” These batteries can store and disburse energy as needed and act in a similar fashion to car batteries. For San Diego residents who may have an electric car, solar panel batteries can also charge your vehicle as needed.
Peak sunlight happens around midday and can cause your solar panel to create more electricity than you and your family currently need. You can store that electricity in a solar battery and either use it later or sell it back to investor-owned electric companies. California law dictates that investor-owned electric companies must buy surplus electricity from homes that own solar panels.
How much electricity do solar batteries store? It depends on their capacity. The number that represents accessible or usable capacity in a battery can tell you how long the battery can power your home or property. Battery storage is typically measured in kilowatt-hours (kWh). The length of time a battery can run will vary based on how much electricity you need at one time. A solar battery that powers small appliances or one item will last longer than a solar battery used to power an entire room.
Why Should I Install San Diego Solar Batteries?
San Diego’s general electric company, SDG&E, has occasionally implemented blackouts to help the region adjust to hot and dry summers. When this phenomenon happens, homeowners with solar panel backup batteries are grateful for the means they have to power their homes.
Furthermore, for families that tend to rely on general electricity during certain times of the day, going back to the grid might be more expensive than relying on solar batteries. Time of Use regulations makes electricity more expensive to use after 4 pm when the sun is not as strong.
Will you need to replace your solar batteries? Eventually. Solar panels can last from anywhere between 20-25 years. But solar panel batteries last anywhere between 5 and 15 years. To keep up with the endurance of your solar panel system, you’ll need to replace the batteries at least once.
Some factors come into play when considering San Diego solar battery replacements. Solar panel owners should consider how often they use these batteries, where these batteries are stored, and whether or not their solar power system is regularly maintained.
