How Do Home Solar Battery Banks Work?

Home solar battery banks allow you to become fully independent of the grid, giving you your own electricity-creating property.

Home solar battery banks allow you to become fully independent of the grid, giving you your own electricity-creating property. When storms or grid failures hit, your home will still have its lights on.

Come rain or shine, home battery banks keep your home juiced. Here’s how they work and why our are the best:

1 – Steal the Solar Power

It all begins on the roof. Those shiny solar panels absorb sunlight and use a solar inverter to convert the sun’s energy to electrical current. Magic. Then that energy gets fed throughout the home or to the home solar battery bank.

2 – Time to Feed the Home Solar Battery Banks

The electricity produced by the solar panels then powers everything in your home. From the TV to the lights, the power goes to those appliances first.

But on sunny days or low energy consumption days, there’s plenty of excess power. That electricity goes to the home solar battery banks!

Here, batteries charge up by using inverters and store electricity for future use. The speed of charging depends on the amount of solar energy being produced and the current demand in the home.

Without a battery, that extra electricity would head back to the grid (if connected). That process is called net metering and can actually earn you money, but for many people, that isn’t as appealing as having those game-changing home solar battery banks!

3 – Converting the Energy

Time to get slightly geeky. All homes run on AC (alternating current). That’s the power you get from your wall outlets. But batteries require DC (direct current to charge) – that’s why your laptop has that big box on it, or why your phone charger has a big adapter at the end.

Solar batteries work the same. They require DC. Using solar inverters, they convert AC into DC to charge and then back to AC to power the home.

Some modern home solar battery banks, such as Tesla Powerwalls, use AC. That can make them versatile for any solar power system but make them susceptible to storms and harsh conditions. DC batteries also have higher efficiency.

4 – Deploy the Battery!

Once that home solar battery bank is nicely charged up, it sits there until it’s time to use it.

There are various reasons for calling up your home solar battery bank’s extra power.

Firstly, a power outage. If the grid goes down, the battery system will kick in and immediately provide power to the home. Your fridge, AC, TV, internet and lights will all keep running.

Secondly, home solar battery banks can be used to reduce your energy bill. If your utility company uses a ‘time-of-use’ (TOU) rate plan, then you may find that certain periods of the day are more expensive than others.

If you’ve got a solar battery bank, though, you can use it during those peak utility charge periods to make savings!

Finally, batteries can be used for homes independent of the grid. So if the sun has been hidden for too long and your home is low on fresh solar energy, you can rely on your home solar battery banks to kick in and save the day.

Florida Solar Power’s Unique Solar Batteries Explained

Some special tricks can set some home solar battery banks apart from the rest. At Florida Power Services, we utilize the unique Enphase home solar battery banks.

Here’s how they work:

Low Voltage. High Safety.

Smart Power

Using the latest tech, our battery banks connect to the internet to deliver the latest software and features automatically. So from bug fixes to efficiency improvements and storm warnings, you’re not left in the past.

App Access

You gain access to a simple-to-use app that gives you a complete overview of your solar power system. This includes how much energy you’ve used, how much charge is left and more.

Start Big, Grow Fast.

Our home solar battery banks give you the freedom to start small and grow over time. Almost like lego bricks, you can add another battery to the bank for additional storage and more juice!

10 Year Solar Battery Bank Warranty

All Enphase batteries are covered by a super 10-year warranty.

The Science Behind Home Solar Battery Banks

Ok, you’ve read this far, so let’s get into the details. Now you know how a home solar battery bank works, let’s look at the science behind it.

Most modern home solar battery banks use a lithium-ion battery. These are seen in many appliances, from your cell phone to cars.

They operate by moving lithium ions through an electrolyte located inside the battery. Ions are particles that have either gained or lost an electron, so when they move from an anode to a cathode within the battery, free electrons are produced.

These free electrons build up, charging the battery and storing electricity. When it’s time to discharge the electricity, the flow is reversed.

You can take off your lab coat now.

How Do I Install a Florida Solar Battery Bank?

  1. Calculate how much solar energy your home demands. This will help you know how big a home solar battery bank you need.
  2. Choose whether you want to go totally off-grid or have a grid-tied battery bank.
  3. Contact a Florida solar power installer. Choose one that is offering the latest solar battery bank tech. Make sure they’re fully certified! (We are).

Install This Year to Save Thousands of Dollars!

Did you know that you can save thousands of dollars on your Florida solar installation if you get started in 2021?

That’s thanks to Florida’s solar tax incentives. In 2021, you can save 26% on your solar installation costs. On a $30,000 installation, that would be $7,800!

But don’t delay! By 2024, those federal tax credits will drop to 0% – it’s going down every year.

How Much Solar Do I Need?

How much solar do I need? How many solar panels do I need? These are common questions for anyone looking to install solar power in Florida.

How much solar do I need? How many solar panels do I need? These are common questions for anyone looking to install solar power in Florida. The answer lies in your current energy usage. So, dig out your recent energy bills. Here’s how to work out how much solar you need:

Use Our Solar System Sizer Tool

We’ve got you covered with a handy tool that will calculate how much solar you need. Here’s how it works:

Step 1

  • Get out your energy bills.
  • Take note of the highest, middle and the lowest daily kWh usage. Or, if you have 12 months of bills to view, you can take the highest, middle, and lowest monthly power bills and use those instead. (If you don’t have this information available, your energy company should be happy to provide it to you).

Step 2

  • Use our calculator to calculate your average kWh usage or monthly cost.

Step 3

  • View our chart on our solar sizer calculator to see how much solar you need.

Example Calculation – How Much Can I save?

Here’s a quick example of how much you could save. We’ve used our system size calculator:

  • Highest daily kWh usage: 53 kWh
  • Middle daily kWh usage: 42 kWh
  • Lowest kWh usage: 28 kWh
  • Calculated Annual Kilowatt Usage: 14,965

Using this calculation, our suggested solar system size would be an 11.59 kW system (Florida Power Company’s top seller). With an estimated production of 17,458 kWh per year and 1,455 kWh per month, here are the savings we could make: $2,254 yr / $187.83 a month!

How Many Solar Panels Do I Need?

Don’t worry; we’ll take care of calculating how many solar panels you need based on the optimal setup for your roof, location and how much you need based on your kWh demands.

Why Install Solar Panels?

So, you’ve worked out much solar energy you need. But, what next? It’s time to install your solar system. Here’s why:

Solar PV Reduces Electric Bills

As you’ve seen in our calculations, you’re going to save a lot through energy bill reductions. Using our example, over 20 years, you would save over $45,000! Regardless of your solar system size, you’ll save money. That’s a fact.

It’s a tested and proven method. Take those sun rays and convert them to electricity on your own property. Power your lights, appliances, TVs, computers and more – with your very own solar panels.

Net Metering

Better still, you can get money back through net metering. Net metering is when you feed your excess solar power generation back into the grid. You get rewarded for it by your energy company. Even more savings!

Solar PV is Better than Hybrid Heaters

As the price of solar installations in Florida has dropped in recent years, the benefits of heating your water with solar electricity have gone up. Water heaters are notoriously energy thirsty and a primary cause of high electricity bills.

With solar panels, you’ll be powering your water heater with consistent free energy—no need to worry about those long showers as much anymore. If you’re producing enough electricity, you can have them as long as you want – because you’re not paying bills!

Sunlight Hours for Your Location in Florida:

Worried about whether you’ll get enough sunlight hitting your solar panels in Florida? Fear not, it’s called the ‘sunshine state’ for a reason:

  • January: 6.9 hours
  • February: 8.2 hours
  • March: 8.4 hours
  • April: 9.3 hours
  • May: 10.9 hours
  • June: 10.7 hours
  • July: 10.8 hours
  • August: 9.5 hours
  • September: 8.9 hours
  • October: 7.6 hours
  • November: 6.5 hours
  • December: 6.3 hours

Average daylight hours source.

Average Appliance kWh Consumption

If you want to go deeper into how much solar you need, you can analyze your appliances. On average, annual appliance energy consumption looks like this:

  • Refrigerator: 600 kWh
  • Air Conditioning Unit: 215 kWh
  • Central Air Conditioning:1,000 kWh
  • Electric Vehicle: 3,000 kWh
  • Heated Swimming Pool: 2,500 kWh
  • Hot Tub (outdoor): 3,300 kWh
  • LED TV: 432 kWh
  • Desktop computer: 194 kWh
  • Laptop: 150 kWh

What Affects Solar Panel Efficiency?

Many factors come into play here—for instance, the angle of your roof or shade from nearby trees. At Florida Power Services, we always design solar systems to provide optimal year-round energy production.

The quality of the panels also matters. Some companies use cheaper materials than we do, which results in poor absorption of those sun rays. Be wary of entire solar roofs made of solar tiles, too; their aesthetic qualities come at the price of less being efficient than regular solar panels.

What About Battery Size?

Solar batteries capture the unused solar power generated during the day, saving it for when you need it at night or during low-sunlight days. When planning battery setup, we consider:

  • Your average kWh demands.
  • How long you’ll need the battery to provide power for during the night or cloudy days.
  • The best return on investment for your plans, so you can begin to make a profit ASAP.

Grid or Off-Grid?

A significant factor in decking your solar power system setup and size is whether you want to be connected to the electricity grid or not. If you’re grid-tied, you have the space to rely on the grid’s energy at all times, including during the night.

But if you go off-grid, you need to be sure you’ll have enough energy throughout the day – so usually, more space is given for extra kWh demands.

Off-grid solar systems are completely disconnected from the main grid. They’re often used by people looking to live in rural areas with a 360 green vision. Solar batteries are a must in off-grid solar systems and usually require more solar capacity than grid-tied systems.

Act Now to Save Thousands of Dollars in 2021!

Top Reasons Why Local Florida Solar Companies Are Often Best

If you’re ready to invest in a Florida solar installation, then congratulations! You’re on the way to saving thousands of dollars.

If you’re ready to invest in a Florida solar installation, then congratulations! You’re on the way to saving thousands of dollars. But next, you’ll need to decide which Florida solar company to use. Which is best? Here’s a look at why choosing your local Florida solar installation company will pay off:

Local Solar Company or Tesla?

That’s probably the first question that comes to mind. Understandably so. Tesla’s marketing has made them a household name across the world. Their owner has his hand in cars, solar roofs and even space rockets. But, in our opinion (and our customers’) that doesn’t make them the best Florida solar company. Here’s why:

1) Better Warranties

Local providers such as Florida Power Services “The Solar Power Company” offer a 25-year warranty on all equipment including end phase inverters (10 year on the installation). While Tesla Solar offers just a 10-year comprehensive warranty.

Tesla’s 25-year warranty only covers the panels. So solar inverters, batteries, roof mountings and leaks repairs will all have to come out of your pocket after ten years! Yikes!

If you go local with Florida Power Services “The Solar Power Company”, you could save thousands of dollars in repairs over the next 25-years as we take care of our customers like we always have done. We care.

100% Guarantee

Go local and you’ll also get a 100% guarantee. That’s because local Florida solar companies are confident about their ability to perform to a high standard AND because, once again, they care. They don’t want to see you left out of pocket with a flawed solar system.

2) Local Florida Solar Companies Are Often Cheaper

We could list hundreds of reasons why local might be better than big-name solar providers, but obviously, a major consideration is always the price.

According to a study by National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), larger solar installers were shown to give a higher quote than smaller, local installers 70% of the time. Those quotes were 10% more on average too!

“Large installers offered a higher quote price than a corresponding non-large installer in about 70% of pairings.”

We always advise you to consider your local Florida solar company and ask them for a quote. Who knows, maybe you’ll save thousands?

3) No Middlemen

When you go local for your Floria solar installation, you avoid frustrating communication issues. Big multinational companies are known for having call centers or, worse, online no-reply systems.

We’ve seen countless reviews of other companies where the customers are left with significant problems (even leaking roofs) and problematic customer service.

As a local solar provider, we pride ourselves on making customer needs a priority from start to finish – and beyond!

You’ll always speak to a human. Our owner speaks directly to you about your solar vision and never hands your over to an external sales team. You’re always in direct contact with the people completing the work.

That saves you time, energy and potentially dollars when it comes to problems and repairs.

4) Custom Designs that Fit Your Home

For local Florida solar companies like us, quality is more important than quantity. We care about making every Florida solar installation a success. Some other companies sometimes compromise on the smaller details to move more sales.

We avoid cookie-cutter approaches and design solar systems for your vision, bringing:

  • Durability
  • Aesthetics
  • Optimized energy output.
  • Fully off-grid systems, which many big names can’t provide.

5) You Won’t Get Oversold.

Say you want a roof of solar panels? That doesn’t necessarily mean you want an entirely new roof built, right?

That’s exactly why we only build and charge for what you want. So, you don’t waste thousands on a solar roof featuring an entirely new roof that you didn’t actually want or need.

6) You’re Helping Your Community

When you opt for your local Florida solar company rather than a massive international billionaire back company, you’re helping your community with:

  • A greener local community with fewer carbon emissions
  • More jobs
  • Helping to maintain the American dream in your community
  • Backing a company that has been serving locally for nearly two decades, to continue.

As a local Florida solar company, we’re facing heavy competition these days from big-name companies. But thanks to local Florida residents, we’re still here, making homeowners and businesses in our community greener and happier year by year.

Plus, that money you spend locally gets injected back into the community because we live here. It’s spent locally, not sent to some billionaire’s pockets.

7) Dedicated Solar Installation Crews

Local Florida solar installation companies don’t use external contractors. So, you know that the team that turns up is:

  • The same team that you’ve read all the reviews about.
  • Highly, trusted and experienced.
  • Not out-of-town, part-timers.
  • They have solar knowledge.
  • Reports directly back to their boss

Those last two points are important. Many bigger companies use teams of roofers or contractors who actually know very little about solar. Local teams do. They’ve been on the job for years, not just drafted in to fill vast demands.

Reporting back to the boss also creates a level of accountability that simply doesn’t exist with national companies. In fact, with Florida Power Services, our owner visits your property and is often on-site during the work.

8) We Understand Your Local Area

Every neighborhood and town has its own unique challenges. That might not seem important when it comes to solar installation, but you’d be surprised.

We’ve worked throughout Florida on all kinds of roofs and know the demands of different tile and shingle types.

Because of our experience, we ensure the most suitable materials are used and the setup is perfect for optimizing the sun’s rays in your area.

We also think about potential storms and wind speeds. National solar companies are cookie-cutter setups that often ignore the demands of each location.

9) Local Often Has Better Ratings

Simply put, take a look at our ratings compared to Tesla Solar. 4.48 vs 2.88 (out of 5 stars).

Why? Because we have a reputation to uphold that is built upon caring about people like you. If you use a bigger company, you’re just a drop in the ocean to them. So when things go wrong, it might not be as big a deal as it is to us.

10) Local Often Use the Best Materials

We also use materials and components of the finest quality, to ensure your solar roofs is: A) Running optimally and B) Less likely to hit problems and need repairs.

In the long run, that saves you thousands of dollars through better energy performance and less repairs once your 25-year warranty is expired.

11) Affordable and Up-front Pricing

The best local Florida solar companies will offer ways to help you maximize your savings! We offer no money out-of-pocket solar loans at .99%, for example.

The solar company should always be honest about costs and never tack on extra charges. It’s well documented that big companies have made sudden price changes. We don’t do that.

Now Is The Time to Act! – Save Thousands of Dollars

If you’re interested in a Florida solar installation, now is the time to act.

That’s because this year you can save 26% through solar tax incentives in Florida. On a $30,000 installation, that would be $7,800!

Why act fast? Because those incentives are dropping year by year. By 2024, they’ll be 0%!

In recent years, we’ve seen many customers regret not acting fast enough to make those savings. You can read out in-depth here to see if you’re eligible for 2021 Solar tax credits in Florida.

Our Solar Warranties Are 15 Years Longer Than Tesla’s!

Tesla’s Elon Musk might be the richest man on earth, but Tesla’s home solar warranties are 15 years shorter than Florida Power Services “The Solar Power Company” warranties.

Tesla’s Elon Musk might be the richest man on earth, but Tesla’s home solar warranties are 15 years shorter than Florida Power Services “The Solar Power Company” warranties.

Here’s why our 25-year solar warranties can save you thousands of dollars for 15 years longer than Tesla:

How Long Are Tesla Solar Warranties?

While Tesla Solar offers just a 10-year comprehensive warranty, we offer 25 on all equipment and 10 years on installation related defects!

That’s over double. That could save you thousands, if not tens of thousands of dollars!

If you choose Tesla and in 11 years your solar system starts malfunctioning, or your batteries aren’t working – the cost of repairs will come out of your pocket.

Note that Tesla offers a 25-year warranty on panel performance only. Solar inverters, batteries, roof mounting and more are only limited to 10 years.

Elon Musk has even said Tesla suffers from quality control issues in recent months because their rate of production demands are getting out of hand.

With Florida Power Services “The Solar Power Company”, we’ll take care of your solar system for over two decades! While Tesla users pay extra for new panels and repairs, we’ll be here – saving you money.

Our 100% Guarantee

At Florida Power Services “The Solar Power Company”, we offer a 100% money-back guarantee if you’re not happy with your installation.

That’s because we know our high-quality craftsmanship has been trusted by Florida residents for 17 years. From customer service to installation quality, we won’t let you down.

Tesla Outsources Their Installation Teams

Unlike the Tesla empire, we’re real people. 

They hire outside teams to come in and do the job for them. That means you never know what team or quality of staff is going to turn up.

Often outside contractors have little to no solar knowledge (the majority of them are previous roof installers, not solar installers), which can cause costly change orders, miscommunication, ignorance or lengthy delays.

Florida Power Services “The Solar Power Company” Has a Dedicated, Local Team

Florida Power Services “The Solar Power Company” has a dedicated, trusted team of engineers and craftsmen that have worked alongside our owner for years. We have a reputation to uphold and a place in the local community that Tesla’s money can’t buy.

From our installation team to our phone line, it’s all in-house – no outside marketing teams and only people we trust. We’re also a NABCEP, FSEC and Florida State Certified Installer.

Tesla Has Eliminated Their Sales Team

Tesla has also gone 100% online, so you’re unlikely to talk to a real person. You won’t be able to speak with them about your solar dream in the same way. Even if you want a phone call, customers have reported monthly long waiting calls and call center staff.

We care about our customers and speak to them as real people. We listen to your solar dream and how we should design the installation based on your home and your tastes.

When problems arise, you can reach our office at any time and talk it over. We make things stress-free for everyone, so you can enjoy the experience of going solar!

Does Tesla’s Solar Roof Make Financial Sense to You?

Many of our new customers mention that they’ve been considering Tesla’s solar roofs. They look great and will gain you curb appeal, but the reason many people stick with our traditional solar panels is that it makes more sense financially.

Solar roof installations require you to build an entirely new roof AND install solar.

If you have no need for a new roof, you risk getting upsold on a product you didn’t even have eyes on in the first place.

With Florida Power Services “The Solar Power Company”, we can install regular solar panels without the need to redesign your roof. We’ll install long-lasting roof mounts and brackets without disturbing what’s below.

Solar Roofs Generate Less Energy

So if the solar roof is more expensive than solar panels, surely it generates more electricity… right? Well, no.

Infact, Solar roofs only generate 70% of the energy solar panels can. That’s because although it’s a roof, it’s a mix of both solar and non-solar tiles. Whereas solar panels take up less space, but are more efficient.

If You Want Solar – Act Now for Federal Tax Credits

Florida’s Solar Tax Incentives will save you thousands of dollars if you start your installation in 2021. This year, you will save 26% – that’s the equivalent of $7,800 on a $30,000 installation!

By 2023 Federal Tax Credits will drop to 22% and 0% in 2024!

But we advise you to get started and lock in that price fast! Delays and COVID issues are potential stumbling blocks that we saw cost customers thousands last year – don’t delay, don’t regret – get eligible for the credits soon!

We Have the Fastest Turn-Around in Florida!

If you need a Florida solar installation, then get it done fast with Florida Power Services. From permitting to the final city or county inspection, it should take us no longer than three weeks!

Many companies take up to 6 months or more, which could see you miss out on 2021’s 26% federal tax credits.

But if you go with us, you’ll be eligible for that AND be saving money

every day, thanks to your new, clean energy machine.

TECO Is Going Solar, But You’re Paying the Bill!

Tampa Bay Electric Co.’s customers are set to see painful rate hikes over the next year, as the company covers its costs for investing in solar.

Tampa Bay Electric Co.’s customers are set to see painful rate hikes over the next year, as the company covers its costs for investing in solar.

In a recent notice to regulators, the Hillsborough County power company stated its plans to charge customers between $280 and $295 million from 2022.

Tampa Bay Electric Co. Continues Raising Rates

Regulators are likely to approve this request, causing customer rates to increase to an estimated $124.30 per 1,000 kilowatt-hours.

That’s up 18% from 2021!

And, that’s on top of already increasing the rates by 8% from 2020.

Why Are TECO Raising Energy Bills?

Last year Tampa Bay Electric Co. said their new 8% increase in rates was due to natural gas. This year, it’s because they’re investing in solar.

They’ve recognized that the climate crisis is calling for a future of electricity, green and solar. It’s inevitable.

The company is on track to generate 14% of its power from solar energy until 2023. That’s thanks to 1,200 megawatts of solar power.

But they’re conveniently keeping quiet their expensive payments towards grid fortification. And natural gas prices keep rising.

Customers Paying the Bill

Sadly, it’s their customers who are having to foot the bill – for the second year running.

TECO’s plans to build 1,200 megawatts of solar power by 2023 “will provide enough energy to power 200,000 homes”.

But, unlike having your own solar power system, you’ll have to keep paying an energy bill while the company enjoys those savings.

TECO also has Solar plans coming up for next year, in the fourth phase of their current solar expansion. So expect painful increases on your TECO bill next year too.

Insulate Yourself From Rising Power Rates in Tampa

As Tampa Bay Electric Co. forces its customers to foot the bill for installing new solar panels, many customers are taking the alternate route – investing in their own solar panels.

Rather than paying for a company’s solar panels, which provide just 14% of clean energy, you could enjoy your own green and clean home of the future – with FREE power.

How Much Could I Save If I Install Solar in Tampa?

If, for example, your average monthly power bill is $160.50, if we factor in the average annual inflation rate of 4%, you will be forking over $85,454 to the power company in the next 25 years.

If your monthly utility bill in Tampa averages $160.50:

Your estimated monthly solar loan payment would be: $125.66

With no money out of pocket you can save $418 a year, and potentially qualify for federal tax credits worth an estimated $9,008.22

You could enjoy a 6.9 year Return on Investment and Enjoy free power for over 18.1 years!

Don’t Miss Out on 26% Reductions!

Thanks to Federal Tax Credits on Solar Power Installations in Solar, you can enjoy a massive 26% reduction this year!

That’s the equivalent of $7,800 on a $30,000 installation.

But only if your installation starts before December 31st, 2021. By 2023, those reductions will drop to 0%.

Boost Your Property Value

So why not consider putting your hard-earned cash towards your own property, not TECO’s. Aside from that clean and FREE energy, you could also enjoy massive property value boosts.

For every $1,000 saved in annual electricity through Solar in Tampa, your home’s value can increase by $20,000. Your investment could pay for itself, fast!

In the future, homeowners will want pre-installed solar systems to avoid the hassle of installation costs and waiting on ROI. We’re already seeing real estate investors choose solar homes over outdated homes.

Avoid Fluctuating Rates

Understandably, TECO customers are annoyed at their rates changing for the second year running. Why should they have to pay for something beyond their control?

Although they can go up and down, TECO has now pushed rates up by 26% in just 3 years.

We’re also seeing rising solar equipment prices thanks to COVID and material shortages throughout the world.

By installing your own solar panels in Tampa, you can gain control over how much you pay and stop worrying about fluctuating rates that eat into your wallet.

TECO Can See the Solar Boom Coming

One thing we can’t criticize TECO for is their idea of going solar. We just don’t like seeing Tampa folk pay for it.

But solar is the future. TECO’s investments are evidence of that, so Tampa residents should act now to invest before the solar boom begins.

By getting ahead of the game, you could benefit from lower rates now and cash in on massive property value boosts.

As they say, you get rich by buying in before it hits mainstream news.

Tampa is Perfect for Solar Panels

It’s about time Florida power companies started investing in solar power, as our state has perfect conditions for collecting the sun’s rays.

On average, in Tampa there are 246 days of sunshine. That’s far higher than the US average of 206.

Solar systems are also great at providing you with electricity during hurricanes and storms. While the grid is down, solar owners with battery bank systems can enjoy electricity to protect themselves or stay entertained.
