GRID-CONNECT WITH BATTERY STORAGE


Due to the reduced feed-in-tariff that is now legislated by our State Government (8c/kWh) for grid-connected solar systems, there is no significant advantage in selling surplus solar power back to the grid. One positive method for overcoming this issue is to store this surplus power for later use which can then save around 32c/kWh (Based on standard Qld power prices from 1 July 2013).

 

These decentralised storage systems increase self-consumption by absorbing excess solar power during periods of high production (middle of the day) and providing this energy for later in the evening as needed. These systems consist of:

  • A Grid-connected Solar PV System
  • A Battery Storage Bank
  • An Intelligent Battery Powered Inverter

The SMA Sunny Island 6.0H (right) combined with an SMA PV Inverter and Battery offers a system solution for increased self consumption, AND can provide the security of back-up power should a blackout occur.
