Best Solar Batteries On Offer In 2024

Solar batteries we recommend for maximising your energy independence.

In recent years, solar energy has experienced a significant surge in popularity among Australian home and business owners looking to save money on increasing electricity prices. 

The addition of solar batteries is also becoming an attractive prospect thanks to the protection energy storage can provide homeowners. Generating and storing your own electricity through solar power enables property owners to evade frequent power outages caused by Australia’s unpredictable weather events.

Maximising Solar Storage: 

Factors to Consider When Selecting a Solar Battery for Your Australian System

Selecting solar system components that are optimised for your property’s individual needs and performance goals is the key to ensuring the greatest return on investment. 

When selecting a solar battery to include or add-on to your existing solar energy system, there are several key factors to consider:

  • Longevity in the market
  • Energy storage (kWh)
  • Ability to upscale
  • Solar battery warranty period
  • Battery monitoring capabilities
  • Ongoing service and support within Australia

Ultimately though, the “best” solar battery will come down to the specific requirements of your energy system and the budget you're working with. 

It’s important to do your own research and consult with a professional solar installer to determine the most appropriate battery for your system (that’s where we come in! Contact us here for a free quote).
