Batteries let you store any excess energy generated from your rooftop solar.

Are you producing more solar than you can use during the day? Or keen to power your home with renewable energy day and night? A home battery can be a great option.

Battery systems are usually designed to store unused power from solar panels, but they can also be set up to charge from our electricity network

In the future when there is more renewable energy moving through our network, we’re going to need a lot more energy storage to make sure this power is available when we need it

A home battery, also called a ‘behind the meter’ battery, can be charged during the day when solar power is plentiful and then provide the power you need at night. It can also help reduce your electricity bills if you charge the battery when power is cheaper, like in the middle of the day.  

To find the best battery for your needs, it is important to do your research. Solar Victoria and Energy Consumers Australia offer that resources that could help to inform your decision. 

Once you have selected your preferred battery, visit our online application service to secure pre-approval for your installation. This application can be made by the homeowner or a representative, which is often your solar or battery installer.
