Solar technology is here to stay. With momentum building toward a greener and sustainable energy future, solar technology is our best bet toward eliminating harmful greenhouse gasses. Together, we will pave the way to a brighter future for all.
Anyone interested in residential and commercial solar can combine solar energy technology with solar battery storage installation. Around the world, these kinds of projects are growing in number and are expected to reach new levels this year.
Large-scale battery deployment subsided a little during the onset of the pandemic but has since picked up steam. In 2020, the overall energy capacity of this technology reached five gigawatts (residential excluded), up from about three gigawatts in 2019.
Shipments for residential storage setups soared by 19% in the fourth quarter of 2020, illustrating the desire for enhanced solar technology inside the home.
Last year, the sizes of commercial projects also grew. A large American plant recently built at a former gas power facility is the nation’s largest battery storage project, producing more than 200 megawatts. This year, the United States is poised to represent 50% of the world’s solar storage capacity. Industry credits the federal solar investment tax credit, a 26% tax break, for the increase to solar battery storage installations.
Solar battery storage technology is an answer to the unpredictability and inconvenience of traditional utility services. Unexpected power shutoffs and price hikes can be a thing of the past. Solar panels combined with solar battery storage can deliver on today’s promise of clean and affordable energy without interruption.
Batteries work by simply storing excess energy that’s produced by your solar electricity system. Solar battery storage lets solar electricity customers stow away energy for when it’s needed the most.
