Why Combining Batteries with Solar is a Game-changer for Increasing Energy Resilience

It has become abundantly clear, especially in recent years, that solar offers unmatched benefits to Australian businesses and is one of the cheapest forms of energy for C&I businesses.

It is also one of Australia’s fastest growing energy resources, with solar installations in Australia increasing consistently every year since 2016, and the number of rooftop solar systems breaking records over the past 12 months.

The financial, environmental, and operational benefits of solar are well-known, but as reliability of power supply becomes a growing concern for businesses, many large organisations are turning to additional solutions to transform their energy resilience.

Combining solar with energy storage (batteries) is revolutionising the energy resilience of businesses. The combination of solar and batteries allows excess renewable energy generated by the solar to be stored in the battery, enabling businesses to reduce spill and use all the renewable energy they generate.

Batteries also mean that large, energy-intensive organisations can have their own supply of cheaper, clean and emissions-free electricity whenever they need it, even when the sun isn’t shining or the grid isn’t connected.

This kind of energy independence is essential for effective and consistent business operations, especially since aging electricity grids and bad weather can cause untimely and unpredictable power outages. Having a back-up power supply in the event of outages helps to ensure essential business operations continue until the grid is restored.
