How does a Solar battery work?
Make your household more self-sufficient
Solar panels generate electricity when the sun shines. You will use some of this power in your home, but any extra power you don’t use will be sent to the grid. If you install a battery, this spare power can be stored in the battery and be used when the sunsets. With our optional power cut protection, you can also use your solar panels and battery to power your key devices during a power cut.
Compare how self-sufficient you can be with our range of solar batteries
Estimated self-sufficiency for a system with a yearly production of 11 000 kWh and a system size of 11.5 kW.

We install solar panels and batteries, you sit back and relax.
What is a home storage battery and how does it work?
Home batteries can store electricity generated during the day for use at night, or during a power outage. This increases your self-consumption of solar power production, and reduces your electricity bills.
The batteries can be connected directly to the solar panel system in a DC-coupled solution, or connected after the solar inverter in an AC-coupled solution. Svea Solar can help you choose the best solution for your property.
Home storage batteries measure the amount of power which you are sending back to the electricity grid, and divert it to the batteries for use later.Typically the battery will be charged during the day, and then once the sunlight levels drop it will discharge to provide power for your home.
You will stay connected to the electricity grid, so if there is not enough power from your solar panels or your home battery then you will buy power from the grid. This way you maximise your self-consumption of electricity, but can be sure that you will always have the power you need.
Why do I need a home battery for solar energy?
A home battery will help you use as much of the solar electricity your panels generate as possible. This will both reduce your electricity bills and reduce your impact on the environment.
How do you install a solar battery at home?
A home storage battery can be installed at the same time as your solar panels, or at a later date.You will need a location for the battery which can usually be either floor or wall-mounted, near to your fuse board. We will connect cables between the battery and your solar inverter, and also connect it to your home internet. You could install it later and every system that Svea Solar sells is compatible with a storage solution.
Can you get a subsidy for installing a home storage battery?
There is a tax reduction for the installation of batteries which store your self-produced solar power in Sweden. Homeowners can get a reduction of up to 50% of the battery cost through Skattereduktion för Grön teknik. You can find more information on Skatteverket.
How much does a solar battery with installation cost?
The cost of installing a solar battery varies depending on battery size and manufacturer. As a rule of thumb, a solar battery cost between SEK 40,000 to SEK 100,000 with a home installation. Feel free to apply for a quote and we will help you adapt a solution.
Is the battery compatible with other Svea Solar products?
Absolutely! We can help you choose the right battery to match with your solar installation, whether you have an optimised SolarEdge system, or a string inverter.We can add the battery at the time of installation, or at a later date.
