What does an upgrade require?
An off-grid or self-consumption model is similar to a conventional grid system with the addition of a battery storage bank and requires a hybrid inverter which is programmed to monitor your energy consumption patterns then automatically draw from or charge the batteries at the right times to maximise your solar power generation and minimise your grid usage.
A battery storage system can also act as a battery backup for your whole home if the grid power experiences a brownout. If required a system can be designed to power your home or business during complete grid failures (blackouts).
Battery Storage sizes and cost?
A solution can be designed for virtually any use case, energy requirements, and budget; as long as you do not oversize the system, any size will offer a positive return on investment. The best way to find the right size system for your home or business is to have an on-site, no obligation analysis by a professional who can help you through the numbers.
