We all know that solar panels produce energy in direct sunlight.
But how does it work at night?
Origin offer a range of solar batteries that store energy generated during the day when the sun is shining.
This stored electricity can then be used at night when the sun isn’t shining or during gloomy days when the sun isn’t as powerful.
If your solar system generates more energy than the battery can store, it will be exported to the grid and you could get a credit on your electricity bill for the amount exported also known as a feed in tariff.
If you need more energy than what’s stored in your battery you will still need to rely on the grid.
Incorporating solar batteries into your solar system provides a more sustainable round-the-clock electricity solution! Find out what battery option is best for you on the solar and batteries section of the Origin website.
