At Carter Electrical, we are specialists in installing battery storage systems and integrating them with solar panels. We have experience working on homes and businesses in the Reading and surrounding area.
We want to provide information on integrating battery storage systems with your solar photovoltaic (PV) installation. With the increasing popularity of solar energy, battery storage solutions offer an efficient way to maximise the benefits of your PV system.
Why Choose Solar Battery Storage?
- Energy Independence: Battery storage allows you to store excess solar energy generated during the day for use during the evening or times of low solar production, reducing reliance on the grid and increasing energy independence.
- Optimised Self-Consumption: By storing excess energy, you can optimise self-consumption and reduce reliance on energy imports. This can lead to significant cost savings on your electricity bill.
- Backup Power: Battery storage systems provide a reliable backup power source during grid outages or emergencies. You can have peace of mind knowing that essential appliances and lights will continue to operate even when the grid is down.
- Peak Demand Management: With battery storage, you can manage peak demand periods effectively by drawing stored energy during times when electricity rates are higher. This helps to reduce overall electricity costs.

Frequently Asked Solar Battery Storage Questions
Do you offer home battery storage without solar?
Yes we do offer battery storage systems that don’t integrate with solar panels.
These battery systems are often referred to as “standalone” or “off-grid” battery storage.
They can be charged from the grid, typically during periods of lower electricity demand or when rates are lower, and then used to power your home or business during peak demand periods or in case of power outages. This allows you to store and use electricity as needed, even if you don’t have solar panels generating electricity.
How long does it take to install the solar battery storage?
The time it takes to install solar battery storage can vary depending on several factors, including the complexity of the installation, the size of the system, and the specific circumstances of your location.
In general, a typical residential or solar battery installation can take anywhere from a few hours to a couple of days to complete. A solar battery installation may take longer for bigger projects for commercial and industrial properties. We can discuss further details upon contacting us.
How long does it take to recoup the cost of a solar battery system through energy savings?
The payback period for a solar battery system varies depending on factors like your electricity usage, local energy rates, and the size of the system.
In some cases, it may take several years to recoup the initial investment, but the system can provide long-term savings and energy security.
How much does it cost to fit a solar battery?
The cost of installing a solar battery varies widely based on factors such as battery size, location, and specific installation needs.
For small-scale residential systems costs typically range from £5,000 to £15,000 or more. Medium to large residential systems, designed to maximize energy savings, may cost between £15,000 and £30,000. Commercial and industrial systems can start from £20,000, depending on the size and complexity.
