How to decide if you should get a battery

Solar topic:

Home battery systems are a great way to help save money on power bills by using more of the energy you generate yourself. You’ll also be more energy independent, and you’ll have a source of backup power during emergencies.


Batteries are only effective if you can generate enough power for storage. If you are using all of the power you generate day-to-day or relying on the grid for additional power, it may not be worth the additional cost.

The cost of home batteries is on the decline, but they are still costly. First and foremost, you should weigh up the cost of a battery against your generation and usage before you make a decision.
