Do I need a solar battery?
Simple solar panel systems do not require batteries to operate, however if you want to store energy for later use or send energy back to the grid at strategic times to capitalise on energy price variations, then a solar battery is a wise investment. With Perth’s abundant amount of sunshine year around it makes sense to store daytime energy and utilise it when the sun goes down.
How do solar batteries work?
Solar batteries store the energy produced by your solar panels. This energy is drawn upon when the solar panels are not producing energy, such as at night. Electricity is drawn from the grid only when the battery is depleted. The solar battery will then send electricity back to the grid once it is fully charged, and you’ll only draw electricity from the grid when your battery is depleted.
What size solar battery would I need?
There are several solar storage options depending on your energy consumption. Talk to Stinson Air & Solar and we will customise a solar battery solution that best suits your needs and lifestyle.
Benefits of solar batteries for homes
- Significant electricity savings: With a solar and battery combination you can expect savings of up to 80% or more of your electricity bill!

Advantages of a Solar and Battery Storage System for the Home
What is the best solar battery?
Sonnen batteries have more market share than any other solar battery company globally and in our opinion are the market leaders.
Stinson Air & Solar are proud distributors of SonnenBatteries. Not just a battery, it’s an intelligent storage system that automatically adjusts the energy usage in your household. Known to be safe, economic and long-lasting, Sonnen batteries are a high-tech storage system.
The combination of a PV system and a SonnenBatterie will allow you to cover about 80% of your yearly energy requirement with self-produced and clean energy. SonnenBatterie storage sizes can range from 5 kWh to 15 kWh and will power a detached house or a multi-family house, all thanks to an energy capacity which can be individually expanded in blocks of 2.5 kWh – should you ever feel the need to increase the power storage in your house.
What are the benefits of a modular system?
One of the most popular product features of SonnenBatteries is that they offer a modular solution to households, introducing a degree of flexibility to add more capacity as and when needed. This helps to ensure an efficient use of your household energy, whilst providing the freedom of adding battery modules onto a dynamic system that is tailored to your exact energy requirements.
