On a sunny day, your solar panels will soak up all that daylight enabling you to power your home. As the sun goes down, less solar energy is captured – but you still need to power your lights in the evening. What happens then?
Without a smart battery, you’d switch back to using power from the National Grid – which costs you money. With a smart battery installed, you can use all the extra solar energy captured during the day that you didn’t use.
So you can keep the energy you’ve generated and use it exactly when you need it most – or sell it – instead of it going to waste. Now that’s smart.
