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.
There are a range of battery types and sizes available, and the technology is advancing rapidly. Caplor Energy is able to design and install energy storage systems using lithium, lead acid or aqueous hybrid ion (salt water) batteries.
- 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.
We have installed a salt water battery at our site in Herefordshire which is designed to capture energy generated by our 137kW solar array for use during the evenings – we welcome you to visit us so we can talk you through how the system works.
