How to Optimise Your Solar Batteries for Maximum Energy Storage

Auswell Energy outlines 5 tips to make the most out of your solar batteries.

With energy prices continuing to rise, Australians are turning to solar as a more cost-effective option – including solar batteries. In fact, 47,000 household batteries were installed by Australians last year alone. As the experts in solar batteries in Brisbane, we outline 5 tips for optimising the energy storage of your batteries.  

Charge at Optimal Times 

Try to charge your solar batteries when solar production is at its peak. You can do this by adjusting your battery charging settings to match the time of day when your solar panels are generating the most energy. In Queensland, usually the most optimum times of day for solar absorption are between 11am and 4pm – so it’s a good idea to adjust your battery to charge at these times.

Select an appropriate system size

To make the most of your solar energy, make sure you have the right number of batteries to match your daily energy consumption and solar generation. Oversizing or under sizing your system can lead to inefficiencies and potential damage to the batteries. Thus, before installation, you should take note of the amount of energy you use in a day and factor this into your system size. Consulting an expert can help you to determine the ideal number of batteries for your purposes.

Regular Maintenance

You should be performing regular maintenance on your solar batteries to keep them functioning optimally. This includes cleaning the battery terminals, checking for any physical damage and ensuring proper ventilation to prevent overheating.

Energy Monitoring

As you use your batteries, you should keep track of your energy consumption, solar production and battery usage. This data can help you to identify areas for improvement and make adjustments accordingly. This can help you to more effectively use the energy that your batteries save.

Select the right battery type

There are several different types of solar batteries available, such as lead-acid, lithium-ion and saltwater batteries. Lithium-ion batteries are generally considered more efficient and are longer-lasting. The Tesla Powerwalls that we install at Auswell Energy, are efficient Lithium-ion batteries.
