The 3 Best Batteries For An Off-Grid Energy System
It’s the question that anyone using alternative energy inevitably asks at some point…
What are the best batteries for an off-grid energy system?
Because of the falling prices of renewable energy systems, more and more people are looking to use alternative energy sources as a way to:
Become more energy independent
And break their dependence on the big energy companies
However, installing a renewable energy system, in most cases, requires you to make a considerable initial investment that you won’t get back for several years.
One of the biggest expenses associated with alternative energy systems is the batteries in the battery bank.
So choosing the correct batteries for your off-grid system is crucial (and keeping the batteries alive as long as possible is also critically important)!
7 Ways To Prolong The Life Of Deep Cycle Lead-Acid Batteries
If you use an off-grid alternative energy system, you will need a battery bank with deep cycle batteries.
The most common deep cycle batteries used in off-grid energy systems are (deep cycle) lead-acid batteries because they’re reliable, affordable, and able to repeatedly deeply discharge and recharge.
But a lot is asked of deep cycle lead-acid batteries in off-grid energy systems. The regular deep discharging then recharging they have to perform puts a lot of stress on the batteries.
But if you take proper care of the batteries …and also do a few tips and tricks we’ll teach you in this article, you can maximize the lifespan of your deep cycle batteries.
In this article, we’ll not only show you our top 7 ways to prolong the life of your lead-acid deep cycle batteries…
We’ll also point out some of the most common mistakes we see people making when they use lead-acid deep cycle batteries in their off-grid energy system (so you don’t make the same mistakes)!
