Inverter+Battery vs. Inverter+Solar Panels

Project Profile

Savings on electrical energy consumption in Ontario during peak times can be achieved through strategic installations. On average, an Ontario household consumes 30 to 40 kilowatt-hours of energy during the day, with about half of this usage occurring during peak hours. To optimize electricity consumption during these peak periods, consider the following options for installations in Ontario.


Installation Options

Smart Energy Storage: Inverter + Batteries"


Effectiveness: Optimizing Peak-Time Power Consumption

One effective approach is to install an inverter with batteries. This setup allows you to program the inverter to store energy from the grid in the batteries during off-peak times, such as at night. Subsequently, the stored energy can be released to power your house during peak hours, aligning with your specific energy needs.

Solar Power Integration: Inverter + Solar Panels

Effectiveness: Harnessing Daylight Savings for Sustainable Living

Another viable alternative is to invest in solar panels with an inverter. This system harnesses solar energy during the daytime, directly feeding it into your house. While this option lacks the ability to regulate solar generation, any surplus energy generated can be sold back to the grid. The grid transformer, though, could be a limiting factor.

Unlock Savings with Expert Consultation

Each option comes with its own set of advantages and disadvantages. Opting for an inverter with a battery allows for customization, enabling you to select a battery size that precisely meets your requirements. For instance, you can choose a five-kilowatt-hours or eight-kilowatt-hours battery, ensuring your investment aligns with your actual peak-time energy consumption. On the other hand, the solar panel and inverter combination doesn't provide the same level of control over generation but allows for the potential sale of excess energy to the grid.
