Solar storage batteries are in demand now more than ever, thanks mostly to the continually rising electricity prices [up 63% in the last 10 years] and the promise of reduced grid reliance.
It’s not total freedom from the grid, but pretty darn close.
Powering your house or business 24/7 with solar is the new Australian dream.
With battery [and solar system] prices continually coming down, increased opportunities for financing and batteries being compatible with most existing solar system, that dream is easy to achieve.
A battery can be included as part of a new solar system or they can be retro-fitted to an existing system.
Believe or not, there are dozens of batteries currently on the market and we suggest that you source one that will break even over its 10-year warranty period. We’ve priced out some of the most popular for you below.
The price of battery storage is directly related to the amount of capacity that your home or business requires. There are also extra/add-on features to consider – home automation, app or smart phone access and backup for when the grid is down.
Many households are looking to capture the excess solar power to use in the evening, which would often be well suited to a smaller battery. Those looking to run their home almost entirely on solar power with backup functionality, will be needing a larger battery. They can price anywhere between $2000 – $20,000.
Through the quoting process, the suppliers will ascertain the required storage size for you home’s solar system.
