Residential Hybrid Solar System

In recent years, many Israelis have been installing home solar systems to generate additional financial income for themselves. Yet, to reach a state of “energy independence” and also a system that produces in the most profitable way, you need to add storage or “batteries”. Until now, it was not cost-effective enough to integrate storage batteries into the system. Today, by installing a solar home system based on storage, the investment yields a potential return of over 10% annually for around 20-25 years. A smart storage system can save a lot of money for the customer, and also allows a real solution to keep the “lights on” in emergency situations – a scenario that must be planned for these days.

There are several ways a homeowner can benefit from connecting a solar battery to their solar panel system:

Savings on energy bills by reducing the amount of electricity you buy from the grid.

A typical residential solar system without a battery will cover about 30%-50% of the home’s electricity consumption. With a solar battery, this can be increased to 80%, 90% or maybe even 100% of the household electricity consumption.

When calculating your benefits, it is important to remember that in order to charge the battery, you have to give up income from solar power. For example, if you charge a 10kWh battery during the day, that’s a 10kWh less feed-in tariff that you’ll see on your bill. You will still be at an advantage as you are always paying a much higher rate to buy electricity than the rate the retailers are willing to buy it back from you.

Leave the lights on during power outages. A power outage can be very frustrating and in some cases poses a health risk. Different areas of the power grid are more prone to blackouts than others.

Reduce your carbon footprint. Installing solar panels is a great start to reducing your carbon footprint, but adding a solar battery will often double your carbon footprint reduction.
