Store Energy For Later Use
Benefits of Solar Batteries
Solar panels are a great asset when it comes to generating electricity. But without the addition of solar batteries, the energy generated from the panels may go to waste. More and more people are turning to solar batteries as a solution for energy storage.
If a home doesn’t consume all the energy stored in the batteries, they can sell any surplus power back to the electrical grid. This scheme is possible under the Smart Export Guarantee (SEG) programme. Our expert team can give you details about the energy companies that are participating in the programme in the Birmingham region.
Reduced Reliance on Grids
Having your own way to generate and store electricity on your property grants you total freedom from the National Grid.
Instead of purchasing electricity from a nearby Birmingham supplier, you can generate your own with an installation of both solar panels and solar batteries from our team at Ecostar Solar.
No matter if you’re installing solar panels for the first time or retrofitting your existing panels with a battery, adding solar batteries is a simple process.
Our qualified staff will handle everything from the initial measurements to the final installation.
You can utilise more of the solar energy you generate by purchasing solar batteries to go along with your solar panels.
Because of this, they become much more dependable sources of power regardless of how sunny or cloudy it may be outside.
The autonomy provided by solar batteries is unmatched.
The ability to use more of the energy you generate for whatever your lifestyle requires will transform your home into a private energy island.
Why Choose Solar Batteries?
With the SEG programme, you could recover the cost of a solar battery over time, depending on the amount of extra energy you produce.

Reducing Your Carbon Footprint
One excellent way to save energy and lessen your carbon footprint is to generate your own energy.
Great Britain has committed to reducing its use of fossil fuels by 2050, and retrofitting solar panels with batteries is a great approach to storing green energy more efficiently.
One of the best sources of renewable energy is solar power, and storing that energy in solar batteries is a great way to use it later.
By installing solar batteries, you are making an investment in a source of energy that will never run out and could supply your Birmingham home with energy for many years.

Find out about schemes and more
Solar batteries have become incredibly popular over the past few years. It’s understandable given the additional advantages.
First of all, the time of day when the sun is at its strongest is when solar panels produce the most energy. However, this usually occurs in the middle of the day when few people are at home to make use of the energy. Without a way to capture and conserve it, this could result in electricity being wasted. Solar batteries store this energy for a time when it will be more convenient for you to use it.
Second, if you save energy for later use, you might not use it all and end up with extra energy. This is a great opportunity to explore other ways to use this surplus electricity. You could, for instance, sell the extra energy back to the grid to try and recoup the installation costs.
Here are a few of the Smart Export Guarantee’s (SEG) most frequently asked questions regarding batteries.
How much do energy suppliers offer per kWh?
Based on market supply and demand, energy prices are updated continuously. You must look at the list of SEG suppliers and their most recent rates to obtain the most recent offers. Depending on the SEG-licensed energy provider in the Birmingham area, you can anticipate receiving compensation between 1 and 15 pence per kWh for the energy stored in your solar batteries.
Which companies offer SEG rates?
- Octopus Energy*
- Shell Energy
- British Gas
- Pozitive Energy
- SO Energy
- Utility Warehouse
*Certain companies offer higher rates to their own customers.
Check the SEG supplier list on the Ofgem website.
How long will it take to recoup my costs?
Recovering costs without the aid of a grant or other programme could take up to 9 years. However, that depends on the cost of energy at the time. We firmly advise you to consider schemes such as SEG when switching to solar. Solar batteries and panels are a long-term investment in your Birmingham home and your future, so consider them carefully.
