Virtual photovoltaic batteries are here to stay! Currently, virtual batteries are making their way into the photovoltaic self-consumption market as a much more practical alternative with which to store the surplus energy produced by the solar panels at your house. Since they are virtual, they offer a wide range of advantages such as: no space is needed, a factor that can be decisive when considering the installation of storage batteries; save on maintenance costs, since they are virtual and you don't have to worry about any physical element; and they offer you total freedom to decide if they are the most appropriate service for the characteristics of your home.

 

What is a virtual battery for?

  • Mainly, a virtual battery provides better management of the kWh discharged into the grid by your installation and harnesses 100% of the surplus energy generated by your solar panels. It stores the money from the sale of surplus energy generated by solar panels. Users can then apply that balance at any time.
  • You will be able to play with your flow of energy depending on the situation. This is undoubtedly a perfect tool to reduce and optimise energy consumption.
  • It protects the environment, as it helps to get more out of renewable energy (solar or wind) when it is redistributed to be used in times of greater demand.

 

How do photovoltaic virtual batteries work?

It is a system connected to the solar panels of your house, which stores the surplus from contracted electricity, as if it were a balance. Then, the discount not used in your monthly bill can be applied in the next invoice.

Another pro of photovoltaic virtual batteries is that they can adapt to both new installations and self-consumption solar panels already in operation.

If you thought this was going to be all the information we would give you about virtual batteries, you're wrong. We want you to know its features and benefits from A to Z, so that you are left with the desire to install them in your home. That's why we will explain its operation in detail:

  1. Part of the energy produced by the solar panels during the hours of sunlight is used for self-consumption of the house itself, and everything that may be left over is what we call surplus. In many cases, this surplus could be returned to the electricity grid thanks to a surplus compensation plan: the user makes the surplus energy available to the electricity grid and gets a "reward" on their bill.
  2. The virtual battery for solar panels will store that surplus – in euros. It works as a piggy bank for the kilowatts already sold but that have not been used. This money or balance will be digitally accumulated for the holder of the supply to enjoy in his next bill.
  3. This online or virtual wallet helps you to save on electricity bills through the compensation (reward) of surpluses, so your electricity bills could be reduced to €0.

 

How is a photovoltaic virtual battery best used?

Seasonal consumption:

If your bills are higher or lower in summer, winter, or another season, with the virtual battery you can use the surplus from the months of low consumption, and thus help to pay the bills in the months with the highest demand for electricity. If you want to know how this appears on your bill, we explain how to understand your electricity bill.

 

Did you know that Endesa offers virtual batteries for solar self-consumption?

Yes, and we offer them under our Solar Simply with Virtual Battery Tariff, for you to get the most out of your solar panels.

How does this tariff work? By compensating in your bill any surplus you generate and that exceeds the limit under your contract. It will accumulate as a balance in the virtual battery and will be applied as a means of payment to the total payable in your next bills.

You could have bills for €0, as well as enjoying and many other benefits for your consumption.
