Solar Battery Plymouth

Solar Battery Plymouth


Solar panels will charge the battery up with the unused electric as you use electric during the day you will store and deplete. Sometimes you will use the energy from the battery in the day if you are not generating enough energy from the solar panels to meet the demand.

You would be advised to have a larger battery storage capacity so you can store the energy for night time usage. Check what energy you use each night over a few weeks so you can see how many kWh’s you are using then buy a battery that will meet this demand.

You will also be able to buy cheaper electric during the hours of 24:00 – 06:00 so you can charge the battery up ready for usage the next day.

Having a larger battery could also help with charging cars from an EV charging point.


About Plymouth

Plymouth is home to a quarter of a million people, making it the biggest city in Devon. Known as Britain’s Ocean City, Plymouth’s economy has historically been linked to the sea. There is a Royal Navy base at Devonport Dockyard, and the city also proudly hosts the Royal Marines.  Plymouth was heavily bombed during the Second World War because of its naval importance, and much of the city had to be rebuilt.

The historic Bretonside area is famed for its cobbles and centuries-old streets, now populated with restaurants, cafés and bars – a honeypot for locals and tourists alike.  One of the city’s biggest tourist attractions is the Mayflower Steps, from where the Pilgrims on board the Mayflower set sail to America in 1620. The harbour is where you’ll find the fish quay, an important part of the city’s economy.

The best-known landmark is Smeaton’s Tower – the lighthouse on Plymouth Hoe which was the Eddystone Lighthouse from 1759 to 1882. When it started to show signs of weakness, it was dismantled, brought ashore and rebuilt on the Hoe.  Just along from Smeaton’s Tower is the bowling green where, legend has it, Sir Francis Drake played bowls before setting out to confront the Spanish Armada.

In business, the city’s best-known brand is Plymouth Gin. Another famous brand which was ‘born’ in Plymouth is The Range, owned by Chris Dawson. Among the city’s major employers today are Plymouth University, the NHS including Derriford Hospital, and Devonport Dockyard.

In sport and culture, the Theatre Royal Plymouth is one of the most successful in the UK, while Plymouth Argyle (football), Plymouth Albion (rugby) and Plymouth Raiders (basketball) are the main sports teams.  Olympic bronze medallist Tom Daley is from Plymouth.
