Batteries are a necessary part of a solar system if you are off-grid (you do not have a ZESA connection), or if you need backup power for load-shedding.


Choosing the right Solar Battery:

Before looking at how much batteries cost, you need to pick the right battery. When shopping for solar batteries there are three main factors to consider. These are:
  1. How are you going to use it?
  2. What type of battery fits your needs?
  3. What size batteries do you need?

Let Us look at each of these:

  1. How are you going to use it? This determines what type of battery you should get. For instance, if you’re going to be relying entirely on solar for electricity, you might want to go with a lithium battery since it stores more electricity. If you need batteries for backup power, then gel batteries will work just fine since you won’t be relying on them completely for your electricity.
  2. What’s the best type of solar battery? There are four types of solar batteries. These are lithium, flooded lead acid, gel, and AGM batteries. Lithium batteries provide more energy but they’re the most expensive. Gel batteries are cheaper but don’t give as much energy. 
  3. What size batteries do you need? Sizing a battery bank depends on the type of battery and how much energy you need. A battery bank is two or more batteries wired together.

To accurately size your battery bank, you will need to work out your energy needs based on your electricity consumption. If you know you use between 15-20KWh per day then you are going to have to work out how many batteries you need based on that.

How you work this out will differ if you are relying entirely on solar for electricity compared to someone using solar as backup power.
