Solar Shifting

Cobalt is a major component of the technology behind the powerful batteries required for household power storage. One of the primary uses of which is the system known as ‘solar shifting’.

Solar panels are cheaper than ever to produce and an increasing number of people choose to have them installed on their homes. Unfortunately, the bulk of the energy captured by solar panels occurs when the sun is highest… when the least is needed! This results in the bulk of the power being fed back into the grid.

However, with solar shifting, the energy that you generate during the day is not wastefully fed back into the grid with minimal financial return to you. The energy is stored and can be used in the evening or whenever you like.

Solar storage systems enable energy security, self-sufficiency, lock in your future cost of electricity, control when you use your solar power and provide an uninterrupted power supply when others have lost grid power

Solar shifting – the green area represents energy that could be saved for later use.
