Solar storage batteries have reduced the cost to you and the environment of running an air conditioner. Now, the NSW Government is offering households and businesses between $200 and $1000 off the installation price when they buy a high-efficiency air conditioner through an approved installer. The offer is for a limited time and full details are available from the NSW Department of Planning & Environment.
How solar storage batteries work
When people are working, air conditioners tend to be used most in the evening and at night. They can use a lot of expensive electricity. A solar storage battery gives you control over the solar energy you generate. They enable you to store your power for use after the sun goes down. When you install a solar storage system, the energy flows around your house are controlled by your solar inverter. The job of the inverter is to keep you off the grid. It does this by supplying the house with energy firstly from the solar panels, secondly the battery and finally the grid. It knows where and how much energy is needed because of an energy consumption/export meter we install into your wiring. You can now monitor live data from your solar panels and battery capacity to see if the air conditioner, pool pump or clothes dryer is really costing you. Better still you can now connect appliances to home automation devices that work together with the solar inverter ensuring they won’t switch on unless there is enough excess energy being produced by the solar system. You can even turn your electric hot water tank into a solar PV powered tank that only heats with excess energy from your solar panels.
