Does battery storage work?

Come and find out about battery storage.  This home has a battery storage system to store any excess power generated by solar panels and a wind turbine and that is not used immediately.  The power is stored in batteries for use when demand is greater than supply; at these times, it powers the house instead of the house importing power from the grid. 

Also on site will be Gwent Energy with a Vauxhall Ampera plug-in hybrid car for visitors to look at and find out more.
