Battery Storage *NO SOLAR PV!*
Maximizing Savings with Home Battery Storage: Even Without Solar Panels
We all want to save on our energy bills, right? And in today's world, where we're increasingly conscious of our carbon footprint, it's not just about saving money but also being more eco-friendly. What if I told you that you can do both, and you don't even need solar panels to get started? Let's dive into the world of home battery storage and why it's a game-changer for your wallet and the planet.
It's All About the Off-Peak Advantage
Octopus Energy, known for its innovative pricing models, offers a fantastic deal: electricity costs just 7.5p
per kWh between 23:30 and 5:30. That's a fraction of the cost compared to the standard daytime rate of 32p per kWh. So, even if you don't have solar panels, you can take full advantage of this overnight price drop.
How Does It Work?
Home battery storage systems are like your energy piggy bank. During those cost-effective overnight hours, your battery can be charged with electricity at just 7.5p per kWh. Then, during the day when you're cooking, working, or binge-watching your favorite shows, you can draw from your stored power instead of paying the higher daytime rate
Let's Crunch the Numbers
Imagine your home uses 4,000 kWh of electricity per year. Without a home battery, you would pay 4,000 kWh x 32p per kWh = £1,280 annually. But with home battery storage, things get interesting.
You'd pay 4,000 kWh x 7.5p per kWh (off-peak) = £300 to charge your battery during the night. Then, during the day, you would use your stored electricity, essentially saving you the full £980 difference between the peak and off-peak rates.
NB. It's worth pointing out that if you did have solarPV then this would also top up your batteries through the day!
That's a significant saving of £980 per year! And not to mention, it's also a greener choice, as you're reducing your demand during peak hours when power generation is often less sustainable.
Benefits Beyond Savings
But the perks don't stop at savings alone. By embracing home battery storage, you're contributing to a more stable and efficient energy grid. It helps reduce strain during peak hours, which benefits everyone. Plus, in case of power outages, your home battery can keep the lights on and your devices charged.

So, whether you're considering home battery storage for its financial advantages or its environmental benefits, there's no doubt that it makes sense. It's a smart move to harness the power of off-peak pricing and embrace a more sustainable and cost-effective energy future for your home.
Also, as oppose to solar panels. Should you move home then the batteries can be taken with you ensuring your investment remains with you.
