Solar Batteries Cape Town
Solar batteries function by storing the solar energy that the solar panels produce during daylight hours. The stored energy can then be used at a later stage when the panels stop producing energy. The bigger the battery, the more energy it can store.
When generating your own solar power, using batteries to store your excess power means using that electricity at home, rather than sending it back to the grid. When the solar panels produce more energy than you are consuming, it sends the extra power to charge the batteries.
