A battery can store the energy generated by your solar installation for you to use whenever you want. Before learning how solar batteries work, let's look at the installation process in detail:
Lithium-ion batteries are the most widely used today. Very simply put, its operation is based on three fundamental elements: the anode, the cathode and the electrolyte. When we connect the battery, lithium ions move from the anode to the cathode through an electrolyte producing free electrons. They accumulate, and the batteries charge and store electricity.
What advantages do batteries have?
And what disadvantages do they have?
If there's a disadvantage to them, it's undoubtedly the cost. But there are alternatives! At Holaluz, in order to minimise the cost of the solar installation and maximise savings from day one, we’re committed to the virtual battery. With its help, and thanks to a change in the energy model towards distributed generation, we manage to apply a fixed savings quota to your entire electricity bill, not only to the energy part (consumption). You could even have leftover savings after having covered 100% of your bill.
On the other hand, if you already have solar panels installed and you want to switch to Holaluz, we offer a Virtual Battery, Holaluz Cloud, our technology for buying and selling surplus energy.
To save you time, we have compiled some of the questions we get asked the most.
