Best battery for solar storage

An increased interest in energy storage systems is not only eradicating the grid anymore rather storage helps issues with renewable. It’s the system that controls the load of the grid when it is connected and the grid is down it provides the power to critical loads.

While the option to buy home energy storage has been possible for a number of years, prices of deep cycle batteries and other components required have been high, this has meant that residential energy storage has been largely confined to off-grid applications and storage enthusiasts until now.

Types of batteries :

Lithium-Ion:

The rapid drop in prices and the evolution of lithium-ion batteries and associated technology is changing all that. The new model of solar energy storage batteries will be cheaper, cost-effective and better looking.

The lithium-ion battery is emerging. Many benefits of using this battery system are there, such as

It is lighter, high energy discharge, lower maintenance, no memory effect, and increased cycle life.

Lead-acid:

But still, in comparison to typical deep-cycle, lead-acid batteries are less in cost than lithium-ion batteries including absorbed glass mat(AGM) and gel models.

Nickel-cadmium:

These batteries have been using around the ’90s.  It’s relatively inexpensive compared with other technologies. These batteries are with high cycle life.

Flow batteries:

This technology takes up an appreciable installation space.  But one of the manufactures has gathered the essential equipment into a single container. They don’t degrade with time so they can last much longer, their batteries can be charged and recharged without impacting its life span.

By providing all the above information, the consumer can select what type best suits for its usage, while select the best type one can look into its battery sizing, cost of ownership and the battery rating.
