Benefits of having a Battery connected to your Solar system

With electric rates continuing to rise during peak hours it’s becoming more and more important to have a battery connected to a residential solar system. What a battery can do is charge itself during low demand times and discharge itself during peak hours when each kilowatt consumed is two to three times as costly. This will make sure that all electricity that is used from the grid is as cheap as possible. A battery will add around $8-$10k more to the system cost but over the thirty to forty year life of the system it will save you much more!
