Battery Storage

NZ Eco Electric offers design and installation of new battery systems and upgrades and repairs of existing systems. It is important to assess your energy usage and requirements to ensure that you get the system which is right for you.

Battery storage systems allow you to store your solar energy for when you need it. If you work away from home during the day, most of the energy produced by your solar pv system will not be used. That energy could be stored in a battery, ready to use when you return home in the evening. A battery storage system can be retro-fitted to any solar PV system at a zero rate of VAT (since February 2024). Some electricity providers, such as Octopus, offer flexible rate tariffs to customers who feed power back into the National Grid, which pay a different rate depending on when the electricity is exported. So if you export electricity in the evening when there is high demand, you will receive a higher rate than if you export it during the afternoon. Batteries give the opportunity for the energy generated by your panels to be stored and released back to the grid at the most profitable time. NZ Eco Electric will discuss your requirements and your electricity usage to provide a bespoke system. Sometimes, due to system size or usage, battery storage is not a viable financial option, in which case we would advise you not to proceed.
