The advantages of solar photovoltiac systems are greatly enhanced when energy storage batteries are wired in. The ability to over produce solar electricity during the day and store the excess energy in batteries for use at night is critical to renewable only systems.
As part of your continuing education in solar energy, it is important to learn more about the types of batteries that are currently available to consumers. Do you know what kind of battery to choose for storing solar electricity? How about the voltage differences between possible battery types?
This quick video highlights batteries from Trojan but what you will learn applies to all battery manufacturers. It is so tempting once you have some solar panels on your roof to go buy some cheap ( maybe even used ) car batteries and hook them up in the garage. Is this the right way to do it? Is it safe?
It is important to know about solar power battery types.
