Types of Solar Batteries and How To Choose The Right One

A solar battery is a storage unit that holds excess, unutilised electrical power generated by solar panels. More than one unit – a battery bank – is often required to function effectively as solar storage. Solar batteries are usually used for off-grid solar installations and hybrid solar systems. However, they are also used in some grid-tied solar power systems. The market is now flooded with
