Solar energy output is highest when the sun is at its most powerful at midday; however energy is often required at night, in the early morning or late afternoon. Combining battery storage with solar systems ensures that the peak solar energy is not wasted but stored in battery banks, ready to discharge when the solar power reduces.
SOLA’s energy storages services department has experience in combining battery storage systems with solar and existing generators in microgrid systems. The end-to-end service includes microgrid programming in order to ensure uninterrupted, continuous electricity, integrated with all other power sources. Clients that typically rely on diesel electricity can use a solar microgrid to reduce the overall cost of energy, increase energy resiliency, thus giving the client more control of their energy and power requirements.
