Thinking of buying an electric vehicle or battery storage system?

By storing energy generated from solar panels, batteries provide a backup source of power, ensuring a continuous electricity supply even during periods of low sunlight or power outages. This ability to store excess energy during the day for later use at night or during high-demand periods is a significant advantage of battery systems.

The key advantage

One of the key advantages of using batteries in conjunction with an energy management system like Gswitch, is the ability to manage high-demand appliances effectively, such as air conditioners, electric hot water, or electric vehicles which require a substantial amount of power to operate. By incorporating a system like Gswitch, which can automatically manage the electricity from the solar generated, the power demands of these appliances can be met without straining the battery.

Gswitch is a smart energy management system that optimises the usage of solar energy and intelligently monitors the energy consumption patterns of the high-demand appliances and coordinates the charge and discharge of the stored energy to ensure that the battery is not depleted. In managing the solar power generated by rooftop panels, Gswitch ensures that the battery operates within its optimal performance range. By controlling all large appliances, Gswitch prevents the battery from being fully depleted, which can degrade its overall capacity over time. As a result, the battery’s lifespan is extended, and it reduces the size of battery needed.

The combination of batteries and intelligent energy management systems like Gswitch, allows for a more efficient utilisation of solar energy. It enables homeowners and businesses to maximise the use of renewable energy and decrease electricity expenses. By storing excess solar energy, managing high-demand appliances, and enhancing the battery’s lifespan, these systems contribute to a more sustainable and cost-effective energy solution.

EV Charging and the importance of getting it right for your building 

EV charging is the future. However, with many varied viewpoints and concerns, making the right decision for your community can be difficult. What is your building doing to get ready for EVs? Maybe residents are already charging electric vehicles in your building, maybe people are starting to ask if they can install a charger, or maybe it’s not even on your committee’s radar.
