There are many specifications and technical details that you will encounter as you explore storage options for Solar Power, and many can seem complicated and confusing. Most likely you will be looking to determine how long a battery will last and how much power it can provide. To get to the bottom of this you should mainly concern yourself with a battery’s capacity and power rating, its depth of charge, round-trip efficiency, its manufacturer, and the warranty on offer.
Since we all have different goals and ideas in mind for our solar energy system, it’s important to identify and define what we would like our system to accomplish before we begin researching and narrowing down potential batteries and systems. Is the plan to be 100% solar-powered, self-sufficient, and capable of disconnecting from a power grid? Are you more interested in supplementing your grid power, or cutting down on our grid usage and overall energy costs?
A clearly defined goal will make the research and decision process clearer and easier to navigate.
