Free power is there for the taking
Free power for your business is great. Who doesn’t want to reduce their operating expenses? However, without a solar battery, your system is not storing excess solar it generates when the sun is out and reverts back to the grid as soon as it’s gone.
Back-up power for your business
When the grid goes down, commercial solar batteries can provide essential back-up power for your business, keeping everything alive and running during a blackout. Ensure your operating systems reliant on computer servers and busy phone lines are maintained at peak trading times, preventing loss of communication with customers and suppliers. If you are a business owner and you can relate, it’s important to safeguard against this by incorporating a battery into your solar system.
A UPS unit (uninterruptible power supply unit) can also be installed with your battery-connected solar system. UPS units facilitate battery backup power if electricity voltage drops to an inadequate level or stops, with an uninterrupted transition process. This protects electronics such as computers and operating systems from damage.
Night time is prime time
Does your business operate in the evenings or through the night? Incorporating a solar battery into your new or existing solar system makes the power it generates through the day available to your business at night, at the time you might need it most.
Higher return on your investment
Reap the benefits of solar for your business, two-fold. Having the power generated by your solar panels available at different times means even less grid power usage and even lower bills.
Even if your business doesn’t operate through the night, there is still electricity being used. Back up computers and servers, security and alarms, safety lighting and refrigeration all require power and can easily all run on your solar.

Expert fitting and installation
It’s important to hire an expert for this work. Solar batteries can be dangerous if installed incorrectly or in a bad position. They can get hot and cause fires or shut down completely – affecting the integrity of your system.
The amount of power storage your business has is up to you! Solstra can supply and fit batteries of varying sizes and storage capacities for your business depending on its needs, from a typical small-scale solar system with a 20kW battery to a larger project with megawatt-sized batteries. Let us provide your business with some recommendations.
