The power of solar batteries

Adding a battery to your solar system gives you the power to use solar even when the sun goes down. It’s a great way to get more out of your solar system and help reduce your energy bills even further.

AGL is currently researching new options for our battery range, as part of our commitment to offering Australians the latest in solar battery technology.

The power of solar batteries

Solar battery benefits

  • STORAGE

    Automatically store excess energy produced by your solar system which you can use when the sun isn’t shining.

  • CHARGE

    Your solar system will charge your battery, and your battery will discharge any stored energy to power your home when it’s needed.

  • BACK UP

    If the power goes out, you can stay in control by keeping select appliances running with the addition of backup power.*

*Backup power is an additional feature and may attract an additional cost. Backup power is dependent on the availability of excess energy stored in your battery at the time of any power outage.

How solar batteries work

Solar batteries work hand in hand with your solar panels. As your panels convert the sun’s rays into solar energy, your battery will store that energy for you to use at a later time. In a setup with only panels and an inverter, your home uses the energy being produced and the excess is sent off to the grid. The battery intercepts this energy and stores it for later use, so you can use your own solar energy when the sun isn’t shining or your solar system isn’t producing enough to cover your household energy needs.

Batteries can also serve as a back up for your home in the event of a power outage. If the power goes out you can use the stored battery power to keep pre-determined appliances running.*
