Working towards a smart self sufficient future with solar battery storage

The technology is here now and we are starting to see a move towards a totally electrified future. Governments around the globe are moving towards electric vehicles that all require charging. Combine this with our ever growing demand on technology and it is easy to see why self sufficient systems are becoming the key watch word.

Systems are available that can protect your property in the event of a National Grid power failure. You have the option to have “keep alive” sockets for emergency use or have power supplied to the whole property in the event of a power cut.

Renewable energy plays a massive part in this future and possibly the only part depending upon your political and green stance. However the problem with renewables is that of intermittence. The only cure to this is solar battery storage and it’s happening now on both large (grid) and small (residential) scale.

The technology required is available now and costs have reduced dramatically in recent years. It is now possible to use your solar array with a energy storage system to reduce your dependancy on the grid to zero. The technology and implementation allows for a reduction in bills and huge carbon emission saving.

A typical home solar array produces up to 4000Kwh of energy a year which is only a little below the average homes consumption. However we live busy working lives and most of the solar production goes unused by its owner. You are producing your own clean energy but don’t get to use it. The transition to battery storage is a obvious natural next step.

The Solar People are an independent company free from any commercial tie in. As such we can offer best advise dependant upon your personal situation. Sound technical advise is paramount and we work with small residential to large scale off grid systems suitable for agricultural or commercial use.

We are accredited to install systems such as Victron, Sofar Solar, SolaX, PowerVault, LG, Enphase to name a few.

Solar batteries are designed to maximise your solar energy production meaning you can use free electricity even at night. This gives you the opportunity to maximise the returns from your solar panels and substantially reduce your dependance on the grid. We supply and fit only the top brand names in the field with a wide range of capacities that will suit every household demand. Every home and need is different just like battery storage systems.

We do not offer a hard sell approach and our surveyors will asses your need and recommend a system specifically for you. Be more self sufficient with a Solar Battery Storage System. Our battery storage systems are safe, very reliable, and provide the lowest lifetime energy cost for both new solar customers and retrofit customers.

Use your solar array as a foundation to removing your dependance on the grid completely.

How the “AC” charging system works.

solar pv energy storage ac charging

Most retro fit battery systems are “AC” charging. With an AC charging system there is no impact on your FIT payments and there is no need to change your generation meter. These advantages make “AC” charging the popular retro fit battery storage systems.


01 Generate Solar

Generate electricity from your solar panels during daylight hours.


02 Use Energy Directly

Use solar energy directly in the home, satisfying load on demand.


03 Store Surplus Solar

Once the electrical demand is satisfied store the surplus energy for later use or grid trading.


04 Charge Batteries from Grid

Supplement stored solar energy with off peak cheap energy from the grid.


05 Use or Trade Stored Energy

You can use the energy you have stored when solar generation is low or grid trade the energy.


06 Monitor & Control

You can monitor the system production via Cloud based app on any smart device.
