Solar PV Storage Battery Installation

As interest in renewable energy grows, more homeowners are investing in solar panels and solar PV systems in particular.

If you're not familiar with PV systems, it stands for photovoltaic as special cells in the panels convert light particles from the sun (photons) into usable electricity (volts). This is different from the older style of solar panels that only heat water (known as solar thermal panels).

At Skylamp Solar, we know all there is to know about solar panels of all types, so if you want to learn more about solar battery storage installation for PV systems, we have all the information you need.

Lead-Acid Vs Lithium-Ion

There are currently two types of battery storage available: lead-acid solar batteries and lithium-ion solar batteries.

The first one uses traditional battery technology while lithium-ion technology is relatively new. On the whole, the newer type is far superior in terms of efficiency and lifespan (see below) and they have a futuristic design that makes them more appealing than their older counterparts.

They're also smaller and lighter, ideal for indoor installations.

As you'd guess, this makes them a more expensive option, but it's worth investing in these if you can.

Even so, the lead-acid type is reliable and does the job perfectly.

Where Can You Put A Solar Battery?

The short answer is, anywhere you like!

Basically, it's up to you. Some property owners like to show off their solar batteries, especially the sleek, futuristic-looking lithium-ion batteries. Alternatively, you can hide them away in a loft, utility room, garage or cupboard.

However, there are several considerations as to the positioning of your battery storage:

Can I Install Battery Storage Myself?

It is possible for almost anyone to fit their own solar panel system, including a solar battery, if they are confident they can do so safely, they are fit and healthy, and have at least a rudimentary knowledge of the subject.

However, few people would achieve the same end results as professional installers, like Skylamp Solar. The fact is that our team has been trained and is experienced in all aspects of fitting solar panels. The training is ongoing, due to the ever-improving technology. It's not so much that you'd do a bad job, simply that we do this every day!

Also, there's the safety aspect to consider: fitting a battery to an electrical system requires great care, knowledge and focus. If you get the wiring wrong, you are risking your home and the lives of you and your family.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long do solar batteries last?

The average lifespan of a lead-acid solar battery is between 5 and 7.5 years and 11 to 15 years for lithium-ion batteries. This means that you'll be expected to replace them sometime during the lifespan of your solar PV panels (these last between 25 and 40 years).

Does solar battery storage take long to fit?

On average, it only takes a few hours to fit solar batteries and connect them to your solar PV system. If this is included when you install solar panels it shouldn't add too much time to the overall job. And when retro-fitted to an existing solar panel system it only takes between two and four hours at the most.

Can I put my solar battery in the loft?

If your inverter is here, it makes sense to consider putting the battery system nearby. After all, it's close to the other equipment including your solar PV panels.

Can you add battery storage to an existing solar panel system?

In most cases, yes. The Skylamp Solar team can usually retrofit a solar battery without too much fuss.
