Choosing a home battery system that really stacks up

Adding battery storage to your solar power system is a great way to further reduce your energy bills by maximising your solar energy usage and minimising your reliance on the grid. But not every battery offers the size, flexibility and scalability many Australians require.

Installing a solar power system is a smart way to offset your electricity costs. However, in most homes, a large proportion of the energy produced is sent back to the grid because it’s generated when it’s not needed i.e. the middle of the day. Adding home battery storage to a new or existing solar power system allows you to store your unused energy to use at night, on low sunlight days, or when utility rates are more expensive.

But it can be difficult to decide which battery system is right for you and how much storage capacity you will need, now and in the future.

Introducing BYD Battery-Box LV

At Solahart, we’ve recently introduced the innovative BYD Battery-Box LV into our range of world-leading home batteries.

This sleek and stylish modular battery is perfect if you’re looking for a high-quality but affordable battery system that can grow as your needs change. The BYD Battery-Box system allows you to start with one module and then stack more on top as extra capacity is required.

Each battery module is 3.5 kWh and can be stacked up to 14 kWh. For bigger residential projects, these 14 kWh battery boxes can be joined together in groups of three to give you 42 kWh. Your BYD Battery-Box can be stored inside or outside your home, depending on your situation.

If you’re adding a BYD Battery-Box to an existing solar power system, you’ll also need a GoodWe SBP Series inverter to release electricity stored in the battery when it’s required during the night. This AC-coupled inverter also has back-up functionality and supports uninterrupted power supply (UPS) which allows for instantaneous switching time during blackout or grid outage scenarios, greatly reducing potential damage to electrical appliances.
