Household Battery Storage
Save money and future proof your home with no more black outs
An energy-storage system, also called a home or solar battery, lets you capture electricity so you can use it at another time. For example, you can store the electricity your solar panels generate during the day and use it at night.
This maybe worth considering if you generate your own energy at home with solar panels but could use more of the outside daylight hours - or plan to start doing so
Benefits of batteries
1. Make the Most of Your Power
With the standard of solar power setups, you install panels on your home and your system is plugged into the grid. If your panels, for whatever reason, don't produce ample energy, your home draws on the grid to make up for the deficit.
You pay for this energy just like you would if you didn't have any panels. If you produce more power than you need, you can sell it back to the grid, securing a discounted electric bill.
With batteries, though, your excess power is stored in the battery system. On cloudy days or days when your system doesn't produce as much power as usual, you can pull from the batteries instead of the gird. Likewise, you get to store your excess energy in batteries rather than selling it back to the grid. This gives you more control over how you use your energy and where your excess goes.
2. Greater Energy Security
Solar battery systems allow your home to be more resilient when it comes to energy. Particularly useful if you live in an area where the grid is occasionally unstable, or you simply want to provide a greater level of certainty for your home's power, battery systems can power key aspects of your home for hours, even if the grid goes down.
3. Reduce Your Home's Carbon Footprint
Installing solar batteries allows you to reduce your home's carbon footprint and bring it closer to self-sufficiency. This is essential for anyone who wants to "go green" and reduce pollution. Today, solar energy systems create much less pollution than traditional fossil fuels and can help a home consume fewer resources in the years to come.
4. No Noise Pollution
Unlike generators, solar panels and battery storage systems don't create noise pollution that will bother your neighbors. This is a unique benefit and is a great way for anyone who currently has a generator to update their system.
5. Reduces Electric Bills
One of the biggest benefits of energy storage systems is that they will help you save on your electricity costs. Back up your home with a battery system and you'll avoid the fees associated with electricity retailers, create self-sufficiency, and save the electricity you generate.

Residential Batteries FAQs
Popular battery sizes for Australian homes are around 10 to 15kWh, the most suitable sized battery depends on your energy goals
Most solar batteries are warranted for at least 10 years, and have expected lifespans of around 20 years or more. Just like your house or car, there are a variety of things that can influence how long your battery investment may last, including:
The type of solar battery: its composition and materials
Usage: how many cycles your battery is put through on a daily or weekly basis, and how deep those cycles are
- Increase solar self-consumption
- Back-up supply in the event of a blackout
Taking good care of your battery, following the manufacturer’s recommendations for use and maintenance, as well as choosing a premium product and reliable provider, can help to ensure that it remains healthy and efficient, optimising the life expectancy and increasing the return on your investment.
Adding a battery into your existing system is a fantastic way to add more value to your home energy solution. Having a battery makes your home more self-reliant, while optimising the benefits of solar energy production. Here’s how to get started with adding a battery to your existing system:
- Review your current solar energy production: are you producing more than you consume?
- Review your current electricity consumption: do you use power during the day or at night?
- Speak to a MAC Trade Services consultant to understand which storage options would integrate into your current system, and whether you need additional solar panels installed to make this work.
- Let your MAC TS consultant show you the payback period you could achieve and the expected savings to your energy costs over the years to come.
If you have a battery connected to your solar system, you may be able to have some electricity in the event of a blackout. However, the exact amount of energy you will have, what you can power, and for how long will vary from system to system.
