Hello again.

Is there anything more to 'littlenergy' than just fitting a battery to your PV system? Does it have the potential to 'earn' you more than just the savings from storing unused leccy for use, say, during the evening or cloudy days?

(I tried to post a link to littlenergy, but the forum thought it was spam. It's a 'com' website.)

This Q is not directly connected with my other PV question on here - tho' I guess it could be. I have a 16-panel (3kW) PV system myself but with no battery, and I was wondering if it would be worth having one fitted.

Many thanks.

Adding a battery might change your system to such a degree that it would have to be re-registered as a new system which may affect your FIT payment.

Thank you, Spin. I hadn't thought of that...

Assuming that the FIT (which I was lucky enough to get at the max rate) is unaffected, what is a typical cost of having a battery installed in order to maximise the use of the captured power?

And is there anything special about 'littlenergy'?

Cheers.
