Solar Batteries in Adelaide

Solar batteries have come a long way since they were first introduced to the domestic market many years ago, and with the improvements in technology teamed with increasing energy costs, they are becoming more and more attractive to Adelaide homeowners.

Solar batteries are a fantastic component of a modern solar energy system as they allow for the storing of excess energy generated by your solar system to be saved and used later. This could be in the evening, or on a cloudy day.


Solar Battery Storage across Adelaide

Why invest in solar battery storage?

There are many reasons to invest in battery storage for your solar system:

Save on power bills

When your solar system generates more power than you need, this is then fed back into the grid. Many years ago when the feed-in tariffs were high, this was an attractive option as you were selling your excess power back to the grid.

However over time, these feed-in tariffs have dropped considerably, and energy prices have risen dramatically. This means that it’s better for you to store that excess energy and use it yourself, perhaps during peak hours when your electricity rates may be higher.

This helps you to maximise the investment that you’ve made into your solar system.

Energy independence

With the probability of rolling blackouts during the peak of summer in Adelaide, and/or power outages during extreme weather events, having solar battery storage can mean that you are one of the few homes that remains with power! 

It is important to note that not all solar batteries will offer blackout protection, and it does depend on how your solar system is connected to your home.  It is important that you discuss this with a qualified solar installer like C & R All Spark Electrical prior to the installation of a solar system and/or battery, so that we can discuss the pros and cons of certain options on the market, and help to find something to suit your individual needs.

Going green

Through installing a solar system and a battery storage option, you are reducing your reliance on the grid. Less reliance on the grid means not only significantly lower energy bills, but also means that you are reducing fossil fuel usage, and minimising your carbon footprint.

Much better for the environment!

The lifespan of solar batteries

The lifespan of solar batteries has greatly improved over the years as the technology has gotten better. There are however a number of things that affect the life of the battery, including:

  • Brand – are you having a quality battery installed that comes from a reputable manufacturer?
  • Temperature – frequent exposure to high or extreme low temperatures can cause the capacity of the battery to decline rapidly.
  • Depth and rate of discharge – each charge or discharge cycle contributes to gradual wear and tear, leading to capacity degradation over time.


As qualified and experienced solar battery installers in Adelaide, we understand how these systems work and can therefore recommend not only a product that will suit your needs, but also ensure that the installation of the battery is going to maximise it’s lifespan.

Ongoing solar battery maintenance

Regular, ongoing maintenance for your solar battery system will also ensure longevity.  When performing regular maintenance checks, our team will look at:

  • The battery system enclosure – has there been any damage or deterioration to the enclosure or housing?
  • Has there been any changes in the surrounding environment that may effect the system temperature or accessibility?
  • Battery system ventilation
  • Are all labels, signage & documentation present and up to date?
  • A review of the online system or system read outs for battery state of health or battery voltages
  • Any visual or audible alarms are checked for function and current status

C & R were very professional and friendly when I first contacted them. They spent time over the phone talking about my needs and were able to draw up a plan. They worked around my schedule. On the day, they showed up right on time and involved me with the minor changes they need to make. They finished on time and left the house clean. I will be using these guys in the future.
