However, if you're still on the fence about implementing a virtual battery in your network instead of FUERGY battery storage, here are some additional arguments as to why it shouldn't be your #1 choice.
3x why NOT a virtual battery
Although today's solar panels combined with a virtual battery are a popular combination, as we found out in a recent blog, it may not always be the best solution.
1. Load on the electrical network
In some cases, the use of a virtual battery and the uncontrolled "storage" of solar surpluses can burden the electrical grid, which has to deal with excess energy produced by fossil-fuel sources. From an ecological point of view, this can be a problem and if you care about the planet and low CO2 emissions, you should invest in a physical battery instead.
2. HIdden fees
A virtual battery may seem like a cheaper and faster solution than physical battery storage, but the array of charges may surprise you in the future. These include distribution fees for the consumption of stored energy or fixed monthly fees. It is entirely possible that your supplier will benefit more from the virtual battery than you.
3. Lack of control
Choosing a virtual battery service keeps you dependent on your supplier. In today's unpredictable times, suppliers can increase prices significantly and change conditions without notice, leaving you to either accept the new terms or find another supplier. The lack of control you have over your own system discourages many from using virtual batteries.
Battery storage, making your solar panels more efficient
Fortunately, there is a better and safer solution: the brAIn smart battery storage from FUERGY, which offers all the benefits of physical batteries. Thanks to its ability to maximize energy from green sources, your solar panels are not only more efficient, but also more profitable.
Using only the best materials and construction methods guarantees quality and long service life. Despite initial costs, your investment into the FUERGY system will be soon paid off. The result is a pleasant and regular income that you will certainly appreciate.
We are living in the future of energy. Are you?
