Add a battery to your solar system

Battery Storage

We’re experts in battery storage systems. We’re also passionate about the technology and excited by the tremendous potential it offers to transform the way in which electricity is generated and distributed. We are technology agnostic; we continuously analyse the batteries and chargers available on the market to ensure we are offering our customers best-in-class technology.

Battery storage for solar panels

In the UK, hundreds of thousands of domestic and small commercial solar systems have been installed. Over the past two years, more and more of these systems are being retrofitted with a solar energy storage system to help maximise the benefits of solar PV generation. In several cases, the size of the original solar system is being extended.

Solar battery storage has the potential to solve the problems of intermittent supply of renewable energy (mainly solar and wind):

  • increased on-site use of solar – with a correctly sized solar energy storage system, 65%-80% of solar generation should be used on-site, thus reducing the owner’s electricity bill;
  • emergency power supply  in a power cut;
  • the ability to  buy electricity off-peak and store it for use at peak;
  • the potential to  increase on site power output by around 20% (useful when fast-charging an electric vehicle);
  • potential to access future opportunities  including the export and sale of electricity at peak charge times, and the provision of grid balancing services.
The economic case for solar power storage
  • In economic terms, with the correctly sized system, the  lifetime cost per kWh of stored electricity is around 12p per kWh. This compares to an  average domestic grid cost of around 20p per kWh, and an  average expected cost of around 25p – 40p per kWh  over the life of a typical storage system.
  • The lifetime cost per kWh typically assumes an expected lifetime of between 10 years and 25 years (or 3,000 – 10,000 lifecycles), and whilst the overall economic case is favorable, solar energy storage should undoubtedly see as a long-term investment.

  • We manufacture prismatic cells over conventional soft pouch cells to give  even energy density and minimise heat build-up.
  • Our Cells  DO NOT contain Cobalt  which generates its own oxygen when stressed, causing an ignition source.
  • Our Cells are  NON flammable.
  • Our cells are  NON toxic.
  • Each cell can be monitored and  each cell can be individually balanced. Other battery packs only monitor Pack voltage, not cell voltage.
  • Bespoke Battery management system  designed and manufactured in house. Designed and manufactured by us to work with our system, not imported from a 3rd party.
  • All systems are  designed and manufactured in house from powder to power. Designed and manufactured by us to work with our system, not imported from a 3rd party.
  • UK technical backup and support.
  • Full in house designed software platform supplied with every system. We do not adapt a 3rd party platform as causes loss of information and inaccurate data.
  • In House Hardware and Software engineers available for support.
  • Market leading warranties.
  • AC Coupled Technology. Can be charged from the grid or from surplus renewable generation such as: Solar, Wind, Hydro
  • Hybrid technology. Both AC and DC coupled. DC to DC charging minimising losses and maximising efficiency.
  • Can also be charged from the Grid utilising a flexible energy tariff.
  • IP65 Protection  so can be installed outdoors.
  • Dynamic System Logic so can switch simultaneously between charging and discharging to minimise Imported energy from the grid.
  • Can be integrated with other forms of renewable generation.

There is no “one size fits all” solution in battery storage. When designing a solar storage system, our final recommendation needs to take into account sizing (excess electricity from the PV system, on site usage) and functionality, in particular whether or not an emergency power supply is required and whether or not the PV needs to function in a power cut, these requirements inevitably impact budget.


Home – AC Battery System

During black outs or power cuts, PureStorage will maintain your home’s critical circuits, including; lights, fridge, internet etc.


Reduce your reliance on the grid. Significantly cut your energy bills, using the latest smart battery technology. Available in 10kWh AC and 5kWh AC.

PureStorage II AC Battery System

PureStorage II AC battery system comes in two sizes including, 5kWh and 10kWh and are sized perfectly for homes in the UK.

The PureStorage II AC system is an ‘all in one box’ solution, making it more aesthetically pleasing and easy to install.

They can be installed indoors and outdoors and have a wide temperature operating range from -20 to 45C.

The system stores excess PV energy during the day using its LiFePo4 solar battery.

This allows you to increase your utilisation of generated power from 30% to up to 85% powering your home from the battery during the evening and through the night until the sun rises. Reducing the need to import energy from the grid.

PureStorage II Battery System

The PureStorage II battery connects to the leading, highest quality Hybrid inverters in the market, including Solis, Victron & Imeon inverters.
