Is Battery Storage Worth It for UK Homeowners?

Are you considering joining the millions of UK homeowners that have made the switch to solar? If so, you’ve probably heard about battery storage and the benefit it brings. But the question is: is battery storage worth it?

Battery storage technology has improved in recent years making it more efficient and accessible for UK homeowners. Breakthroughs in technology have led to the development of compact and powerful storage solutions, offering extended lifespans and higher energy capacities.

What are the benefits of investing in solar battery storage?

Battery storage supplies many attractive advantages, including:

You Save on your energy bill

Whilst a standard solar PV system will help to cut down your energy consumption during the day, it is during the evening when solar battery storage can come into play, providing you with renewable-generated electricity at no additional cost.

Solar panels and battery storage can help you to reduce your energy bills by up to 70%, dependent on the size and capabilities of the solar installation and battery storage.

Protect yourself against unstable energy prices

Becoming independent from the UK grid can help to protect you from unstable energy prices that may fluctuate throughout the year.

The more energy you produce and consume from your solar panels and battery storage systems, the less you take from the grid so your energy prices will be lessened.

You can retrofit existing solar PV systems with a battery storage system

If you already have solar panels fitted to your property, you can add battery storage to your existing system.

Depending on the specifications of your existing system and how much storage capacity you require, we offer a range of battery storage options to suit your needs.

Are there any downsides to investing in battery storage options?


Solar battery prices start from £2,750 before installation. However, the long-term benefits that they bring outweigh the cost. The expected lifespan of a Sunsynk batter is expected to be around 10-years or more under normal usage.

The battery can be expected to remain serviceable for more than 10 years and this takes into consideration that it is charged and discharge once per day at room temperature. The module also incorporates a self-monitoring function for the detection of any abnormalities in power storage.

Space demanding

Some high-capacity solar batteries require space to be installed and may take up some space – especially when located indoors. However, Sunsynk batteries are designed with this in mind. The Sunsynk L3.0 battery is only 44cm x 52cm so is the perfect option when space is an issue.

Is investing in a solar battery storage system a good idea?

Having covered all of the points, battery storage is a great addition to any new or existing solar panel systems. They provide an extensive range of benefits including, reduced energy bills, energy independence and protection from increasing energy prices.
