Is battery storage worth it?

Yes. There are many benefits to having a battery storage system, like libbi, in your home. Whether you’re worried about not producing enough solar energy with your home solar panels and having to rely on the grid or you’re concerned about having power during blackouts.

It’s a common misconception that battery storage is only beneficial for those who are producing their energy at home with wind or solar power. Whether you are generating your power or taking it from the grid, you could massively benefit from having a home battery storage system.

Why do I need a battery storage system?

There are many benefits to having a battery storage system. Whether you’re worried about having to rely on energy from the grid from an environmental or financial point of view or if you live in an area which experiences regular blackouts and you don’t want to be left without power.

With the rising cost of energy, installing a battery storage system and using it in conjunction with a flexible tariff means you could save money in the long run. By charging your battery during cheaper parts of the day (usually whilst you’re sleeping) you could run your home during more expensive parts from your battery.

If your home is equipped with solar panels, then not only could you be continuing to save money but you’d also be ensuring that the power you are using is coming from sustainable sources. This is the same if you’re producing your own energy from wind or other renewable sources.

Is a battery storage system necessary if I have solar panels?

You know how unpredictable the weather in Ireland can be. We don’t have the same amount of sunlight available as someone who might be living in a more tropical climate. Because of this, your solar panels might not always be able to generate enough energy for your needs.

That being said, on the days where you are generating more energy than usual you might not want to be sending this back to the grid. You also don’t want to be reliant on the grid on those days when you haven’t generated quite enough energy.

With a battery storage system, like libbi, you’re able to store your excess electricity and use it to keep you topped up on those cold and miserable winter days or even just overnight. Ensuring you have the right-sized battery storage system for your home, could mean you won’t have to rely on energy from the grid in the future.
