Your Domestic Battery Storage Questions Answered

Various different factors can affect this answer. The first step is figuring out your household’s daily energy usage and your peak demand. Once you know how much energy you use on average and the maximum amount used at any one time, you will be able to choose a home battery storage system that has a sufficient energy capacity to power your home – based on your rate of electricity consumption.

Other questions to ask yourself are: Do you have or are planning to have a Solar PV installation, and can you purchase electricity at off peak rates?

 

As an example – A customer with a 3 kw Solar PV system and annual usage of 4000 kWh would usually have a battery storage system between 12 to 15 kW.

 

We are more than happy to advise what size system best suits your needs.

We have high stock levels of all products and can normally supply products within 2 weeks. So no matter whether you’re looking for AC chargers, Hybrid Solar Inverters, or Home Battery Storage Systems, we can guarantee a quick turn around.

Solax Power Batteries have a 6000 cycle life expectancy. That means if the battery was charged and discharged to 100% of its capacity each day it would have a lifespan of 16 years. In reality it is rare that a battery would be fully charged and discharged everyday so the expected life expectancy can be as high as 20 years.

This will depend on the size and type of system purchased. Our home battery storage products range in price (excluding VAT) from £2,500 up to £6,600 for a larger system that will store up to 17kWh.

We are more than happy to provide a fixed price quote based on your specific requirements.

Please note, the above example is for a full system and so would include both the AC Charger and Battery components.

Home battery storage systems can be fitted either inside or outdoors as most products have an IP65 rating. Ideally a product needs to be installed  within 10 metres of the main consumer unit. For maximum flexibility with fitting our battery storage systems, our products can be either floor or wall mounted.

All Solax Power products come with a 10-year product warranty.

This all depends on how efficiently you use your system and the cost of electricity. A typical property currently has the unit cost of electricity capped at around £0.35/kWh, and off-peak electricity can be purchased at around £0.075/kWh. If a home battery system could store 2500 kWh of Solar PV power and 4000 kWh of off- peak electricity, the annual saving could be over £1,800 per annum.


All customers are different, but we are more than happy to guide you through what your own potential savings could be each year.

All purchased battery storage systems will need to be notified to your District Network Operator (DNO). However, only systems that have a discharge rate greater than 3.7 kW will need approval via the G99 regulations prior to installation. Systems below 3.7 kW will only need to be simply notified to the DNO post installation via G98 regulations. This process will all be undertaken by your approved installer.

All our home battery storage products have passed International, European, and UK safety tests and are certified accordingly. The batteries supplied are LiFePO4, the safest type of Lithium batteries. These batteries will not overheat, and even if punctured they will not catch on fire.

Many homeowners aren’t aware that battery storage can be used independently of solar panels, by capturing power from the grid and storing it for power outages or peak demand times. The value of getting battery storage without solar panels in the UK depends on if you have access to time-of-use electricity tariffs. If you do, then having this backup allows you to both save money and improve your energy efficiency without necessarily having to install solar panels.

Will installing a battery save me money? The cost-effectiveness of home battery storage depends on several factors, including the cost of electricity in your area, the size of your solar system, whether you have access to off-peak energy prices, and your energy usage patterns. In most cases, using home battery storage can be more cost-effective than relying solely on peak-time grid electricity. However, you will need to weigh these potential savings against the initial cost of installation, and how long the battery will last to determine whether home battery storage is a cost-effective option for you.

A home battery storage system stores excess energy from solar panels or the grid and uses it during peak hours, helping homeowners to save money.

The length of time that a battery storage system can power a house depends on several factors, including the battery’s capacity, the household’s energy usage, and the size of the solar panel system.
