Please suggest me some tips for Excess Solar Energy Storage:
I have installed Solar Power system at my home which has the following details:
PV Modules Installed capacity= 2.160KW (08modules with 270Watt/panel)
Off/On grid Inverter (Has multiple functions including Net-metering option) = 3.5KW
Deep Cycle Batteries= 04 (120Amp each)
Average Energy consumption (Load) = 15KWH (60% of this is used at night-from Grid)
Net-metering option is not available in our area. What I am asking here, Can I store excess Solar Energy as compressed air during the day time and use it at night?
What will be the compressor specifications/type for providing 9KWH during night hours?
How it can be coupled with an A.C. generator?
Is there any system already in market that meets my set-up demand?
Batteries cost is higher if we take into consideration the replacement within 20 years(approximately 05-06 times)
