Energy Storage

An energy storage system will save your excess renewable energy in a battery instead of feeding it back to the grid. This means you are able to use your renewable energy as and when you need it, and not only when it is being generated, therefore, maximising the self-consumption of your solar PV system.

  • Use more of your generated energy
  • Can be designed to provide backup power in the event of a power cut
  • Be less reliant on the your electricity supplier
  • Avoid energy inflation and price hikes
  • Decrease your energy bills
  • Further reduce your carbon footprint

Caplor Energy currently offers the PowerFlow Sundial energy storage system from £2700 ex VAT. The system works by instantaneously capturing and releasing electrical energy stored in the integrated battery pack. The capture and release system reacts to the building’s demand profile during the day or night. Energy release occurs quickly, and at an industry leading efficiency rate, helping to increase self consumption and reduce energy bills.

For further information the Sundial brochure and introductory video provide an overview of how the system works. Our solar experts are also on hand to answer any queries you may have.

Caplor Energy is able to design and install energy storage systems using lithium, lead acid or aqueous hybrid ion (salt water) batteries. If you would like to arrange a survey or talk to a member of our technical team please call 01432 860644.


How does it work?

An energy storage system will allow you to efficiently collect and store the solar energy you have generated and use it when your solar PV system is no longer generating electricity.

Aquion-Energy-S-Line-Battery-StackWith ever increasing energy prices, you must make the most out of your solar energy and an energy storage system is the perfect solution: allowing you to get the most out of your PV system day and night, converting and directing your solar power to where it is needed, when it is needed.

If you have already invested in a solar PV system a battery can be retrofitted to what has already been installed. Alternatively, if you are looking to purchase a system for the first time, this is an option to consider investing in at the same time.
