The Best Battery To Store Solar Energy
Imagine you have a Solar panel on your roof that produces more electricity than you need. Where do you store it?
The answer is Solar Battery!
Batteries are the muscle of any Solar-powered system. A Solar battery has two basic functions: storing energy and discharging energy. When used to store energy, a battery acts as a buffer between your power supply and your power demand, keeping enough juice in reserve to meet any sudden peaks in demand.
This helps prevent blackouts and brownouts, which are often caused by the power supply failing to match sudden increases in demand. Besides, you would be independent of the power suppliers, saving your hard-earned money, and protecting the planet!
A variety of Solar batteries are available for use. Let us explore the options you must consider when looking for an efficient battery to store surplus Solar energy.
Lithium Solar Batteries
The most common type of battery used is lithium-ion and is the best solution for storing Solar power.
Other batteries, like Lead Acid batteries, use outdated technology and have high rates of failure. Their upfront costs may be low, but lifetime costs are much higher than advanced lithium batteries.Solar farming techniques allow smallholders to save immensely on fuel costs and automate farming tasks, which frees up their days for other important work.
Lithium batteries are one of the most energy-dense rechargeable batteries in the market, which is why they have become one of the leading energy storage solutions in recent times. Besides, they are maintenance-free and have a longer lifespan to match their higher price.
Unlike the other batteries, lithium-ion batteries have superior stability and low-temperature performance, thus ensuring that these batteries can be used during cold seasons as well.
Therefore, the high reliability and long lifespan have made lithium batteries a popular choice among experts to store Solar power.
ClimateSmartTM Battery by SunCulture
It is an intelligent Solar energy storage system that can store Solar energy and release it anytime later, as and when required.
ClimateSmartTM Battery works efficiently on a lithium battery with a 310W Solar panel, rendering 20+ hours of operation for a 5-year lifespan.
Moreover, it provides 15 Ah (Ampere Hours) of electric charge, which is equivalent to 100 Ah of a lead-acid battery, given that a lithium battery has a capacity of 95%.
This battery incorporates an MPPT based Solar charge controller to optimize the high voltage generated by Solar panels. Besides, ClimateSmartTM is GSM connected with the provision of access to SMS updates and data logging.
Difference between Lead Acid and ClimateSmartTM Battery
The difference in the cost between the two types of batteries is significant. However, this should not be the only deciding factor when choosing a Solar battery. The three factors that should be considered are:
- The lifespan and durability, which ultimately result in maintenance costs over time.
- The efficiency of the battery (ClimateSmartTM has an efficient lifespan of 5 years, whereas the other can serve you for around 1.5 years).
- And the warranty that comes with it.
