Auswell Energy outlines why we believe every Brisbane family can benefit from installing solar batteries for their home.
Brisbane is in an excellent geographic location for solar energy – it receives about 5.2 hours of ‘peak sun’ per square metre on average per day. Despite many Brisbane households making the switch to solar, an lesser-known addition that can optimise your solar energy are solar batteries. These devices store the energy generated by solar panels for later use. If you already have a solar system installed on your home, here’s why you should seriously consider installing solar batteries in Brisbane.
Energy independence and cost savings
Because of their ability to store excess energy collected by your solar panels during the day, solar batteries provide homeowners with more energy independence and cost savings. This stored energy can be used during the night, which will reduce your home’s reliance on grid power – effectively minimising your electricity bill. With batteries, homeowners can also more easily manage their energy consumption to ensure they can make the most out of their investment in solar.
Resilience During Grid Outages
With solar batteries, the days of running out of power during a grid outage are over. Solar batteries act as a backup power source when the grip is down, storing energy to keep your essential appliances and systems running. This can be incredibly useful during severe weather or other emergencies.

Environmental Benefits and Sustainability
Solar batteries are an excellent addition to your home’s solar system from a sustainability perspective as well. Your existing solar system may produce surplus energy that goes unused during the day, resulting in wasted energy. On the other hand, having solar batteries installed means that the extra energy produced is stored for later use, reducing this wastage. Furthermore, batteries allow homeowners to use solar energy for longer when the sun is not shining, further reducing the need for non-renewable sources.
Increasing Property Value
Due to the continually rising cost of energy, solar batteries are an incredibly attractive addition to prospective buyers, if you ever decide to sell your home. Homes with solar systems and batteries are viewed as being more self-sufficient, which is a compelling selling point. Thus, you may be able to up the asking price of your home, with the addition of solar batteries.
It is clear that solar batteries provide a number of excellent benefits for homeowners who have already installed solar. If you think that solar batteries would be a good addition to your home, contact Auswell Energy for a free consultation. We are the experts for solar batteries in Brisbane.
