With over 22,000 residential batteries installed (representing 1 GWh of storage capacity), momentum is strong as we embark on the next phase of renewable energy investment – battery energy storage. Household and utility scale systems will lead the way with businesses to follow.

Batteries will be used to ‘flatten the curve’ by storing the abundance of excess solar generated for use at later times.

At Solar-e we have developed tools to help our customers optimally size battery systems based on their energy profile and objectives (financial, resilience etc). Needs are unique and batteries should be designed around those needs.
