Solar Power Battery

There are a number of types of solar batteries on the market, so it’s important to follow the specific advice of your installer and keep any documents and instructions on file for reference. Solar batteries should be regularly maintained in order to extend their lifespan and keep their performance high. Being such a financial investment, loss of efficiency and longevity can have financial repercussions. As a general rule, the following activities are advised for solar storage batteries:

  • Inspecting and cleaning your battery regularly

It’s a good idea to familiarise yourself with the external appearance of your battery system as it’s installed. This way, you will be easily able to identify electrolyte leaks, cracks, corrosion and general wear and tear. Your battery should be clean, dry and free of any residue on the outside surface.

  • Monitoring the electrolyte level in certain types of solar batteries

We advise following the directions given by your installer in your documentation or manual, as battery care varies depending on make, model and type. Always use relevant safety precautions when maintaining your solar battery.

  • Keeping your battery full of charge, as low charge can impact performance long term

Your solar power system and battery size should be balanced between the number of kilowatts and the battery’s storage capacity. It is also important to make sure your solar panels are filling your solar battery adequately, as consistently low levels of charge can be damaging to your solar power system.

Charge Controller

Your charge controller regulates the rate at which electricity is drawn from and added to your battery. The charge controller acts to prevent battery overcharging and over-voltage which reduce the system’s performance and lifespan, as well as reducing safety concerns.
