Battery Storage Solutions
Are you looking to harness the full potential of solar?
Every home in Cheshire has unique energy needs. We partner with leading battery suppliers to offer you the latest battery storage solutions.
By storing your solar energy in batteries, you can enjoy the advantage of using that clean energy even after the sun goes down. This means you’ll reduce your reliance on electricity from the National Grid, saving you money in the long run.
Cheshire Backup Power
Never worry about power outages again!
Some of our systems are equipped to automatically kick in when the National Grid fails. This means your lights will stay on, your food will remain cold, and your essential devices will keep running, ensuring your comfort and peace of mind during unexpected blackouts.
The Bright Future of Battery & Solar Integration
Integrating batteries into your Solar PV setup represents a substantial stride towards a future of sustainable and economical energy. This combination guarantees a reliable power source, and reduces dependence on expensive grid electricity, saving money while aligning with your eco-friendly objectives.
How much money can I save?
The savings you can achieve are determined by several factors, including the number of solar panels and total battery capacity you choose, as well as the rate at which the battery charges and discharges. Our quotations will clearly outline the potential financial benefits of installing a bespoke solar and battery storage solution.
Typically, you can expect a return on investment between 3-5 years and save a significant amount of money during the lifetime of your solar and battery system. For example, we recently estimated that a 4 bed house with high energy needs would save £36,100 over 25 years with their 4kW Solar system and 9.5 kWh Givenergy battery.

5 Battery Storage advantages
Stores excess energy
Provides back up power during grid shortages or emergencies
Charge the battery at night using an off-peak electricity rate
Gain energy independence
Reduce reliance on fossil fuels and promote cleaner energy use
0% VAT Incentive
On battery storage systems
From 1 February 2024, the Government cut VAT to zero for domestic battery storage systems. Previously, installations had to be combined with solar to qualify for the benefit.
It’s important to note that this 0% VAT period will only be in effect until March 31, 2027, giving homeowners a three year window to take advantage of this cost-saving opportunity.
Gain Energy Independence
Reduce your reliance on the National Grid
Store excess energy generated by your solar panels in the daytime and use it at night when the sun is down. Use Octopus Flux to also export excess energy back to the grid and get paid to sell your own green energy.

We can discuss various battery products and find the right battery for you. Did you know we have a showroom at our premises where you can see the products first hand? If you would like to discuss more about our battery storage products, get in touch and request a quote or appointment.
This is unique to each property and what you want to achieve. We will need to take into consideration how much energy your solar system is able to generate which can be dependent on roof size and roof orientation. An energy survey will determine how much energy your household consumes during daylight hours and find out how much it requires in the afternoon. If you want to save as much money as possible, you’ll need enough battery storage to cover your energy usage when the solar panels are not generating electricity. We can advise what battery system is most suitable for your needs with a free quote.
Most batteries have a guarantee for 10 years but they will generally last up to and over 20 years. Batteries, like solar panels, do degrade over time but at a slow rate.
