Batteries For Solar
Battery energy systems in Australia & New Zealand, have become increasingly popular in the last few years. They help households and businesses draw less energy from the grid, reduce the overall carbon footprint, lower electricity bill costs and can provide backup power in the event of a blackout. To cater to the growing demand for solar PV systems in Australia, R&J Batteries supply suitable batteries for: UPS, backup power systems, RAPS, SAPS, frequency control systems, peak shifting, black-out protection and load management.
We source these batteries from top brands such as BAE, Zenaji, US Battery, Fullriver and RELiON for different applications and requirements. Explore our range today.

Made 100% in the USA, U.S Battery’s RE Series of solar batteries are designed to provide the highest peak capacity, longest cycle life and greatest reliability for powering off-grid locations. They are also suitable for those that are connected to the grid and needing backup power, energy storage and self-consumption. RE Series solar batteries are manufactured with the exclusive XC2™ formulation and Diamond Plate Technology®. Available with a wide range of storage capacities including 2, 4, 6, 8 and 12-volt deep cycle options, you can find the right energy storage solution for your solar energy requirements at R&J Batteries.
Solar Batteries FAQ
A home solar battery system generally includes a battery and an inverter, paired with existing or new rooftop solar panels. If you are looking for a home solar battery system that you can rely on during a blackout, additional equipment may need to be installed because not all battery systems provide backup power.
A home solar battery system works by storing excess generation from your solar panels. You can then use this at times where there is no sun or during cloudy periods. By storing and using stored energy from your solar battery system, your household will draw less energy from the grid thus lowering your electricity costs.
The best solar battery depends on the application and its power requirements. Our friendly solar team can help you select the best solar battery for your residential or commercial application from our range of BAE, Fullriver, RELiON and Zenaji solar batteries.

Whether you are motivated by financial reasons, ecological reasons or both, it is possible to run your home on solar power alone. However, there are various factors that determine the possibility of 100% solar energy coverage such as how much energy you require and if there are any limiting factors at your property (i.e. available space for the solar system, weather patterns and shading). Chat with our solar team to determine the possibility of running your house on 100% solar energy.
Yes, it is possible to add a battery to your existing solar panels. However, there are some factors to consider before doing so such as:
- Your current inverter
- Your feed-in tariff
- Your solar system size
- Reason for investing in a solar battery storage system
Our solar team can help you decide if adding a battery to your existing solar panels is the right decision for you both short term and long term.
When it comes to determining how big your solar battery should be, it comes down to several factors such as your location, the positioning of your solar panels and how much energy you produce and how much energy is required as a back-up. As a guideline, a 5Kw solar panel system will produce around 17.21 kW per day depending on your location in Australia.
