Importance Of Solar Battery In Solar Power Systems

Solar power systems are widely used for various applications as it is one of the best renewable sources of energy. However, an off grid solar power system requires a good capacity solar battery for better storage capacity. The solar arrays produce energy which is stored in deep cycle batteries and this provides power to various applications during demand.

However, there are companies which design lower capacity batteries with less storage system. This can eventually wreck havoc on the systems. During cloudy weather, the production capacity of the solar chargers is low and this leads to lesser storage of solar power in the batteries. In due course of time, insufficient back up power can cause depletion and failure of systems.

In most cases, there is an imbalance between solar panels and the capacity of the batteries. If the number of solar panels is much more than the number of batteries, the energy is wasted. If there are a larger number of batteries and fewer numbers of panels, the batteries seldom receive the full amount of charge. The accumulated power may deplete during the night.

Solar batteries with lower capacity experience a higher discharge and this induces the batteries to work more efficiently which ultimately reduces the life of the batteries. In such cases, the batteries need to be replaced every 2 to 4 years instead of 5 to 7 years.

Today there are companies which manufacture high quality solar battery with ample storage facilities. Most of these batteries exhibit excellent performance.

Proper maintenance of the batteries ensures its long life. It is important to check the water level of the batteries, clean the terminals with an anti-corrosive cleaner and so forth.

It is important to choose the capacity of the battery according to the requirements of the appliances. Calculate the usage of homes or office spaces before installing solar panels and storage batteries. Seek the assistance of an expert who has relevant experience in installing solar panels and batteries. Solar batteries of different sizes and capacities can be bought from various online stores at affordable price rates.
