One of the most exciting advancements in solar energy technology is the emergence of streamlined, large-capacity battery storage systems. In the past, solar customers who wanted any kind of storage capacity had to rely on complicated networks of batteries designed for automotive or marine applications. Now, thanks to the rapid pace of innovation, the storage potential of batteries have dramatically increased while their size and cost have decreased. As a result, a comprehensive home battery system is no longer a thing of the future.
How Do Solar Battery Systems Work?
Since the sun doesn’t shine 24/7, 365 days a year here in New York, at night and during extended periods of inclement weather, you still need an additional source of power even if you have solar panels. Adding battery storage to your solar system gives you an unprecedented amount of energy independence.
During the day, power harvested from the sun is available for immediate use. And any excess can now be retained directly on-site at your home. That way, the power attained during the daylight hours can sustain through the evening and into the early morning hours—or even for days at a time.

Solar Battery Systems: Worth the Cost?
