What’s the difference between a battery and an inverter?
An inverter will convert electricity into a usable form to be used in your home or stored in a battery.
A battery allows you to store any power generated from your solar system to use when it best suits you, even when your solar system isn't generating electricity.

A battery will generally help to reduce your electricity bill. The electricity your solar panels generate using the power of the sun is free and the battery will make the most of the way you use this free electricity. Changing the way you use electricity is another way to maximise the savings on your bill.
