Solar storage batteries in Australia are becoming increasingly popular for people with solar systems who are wanting to increase their energy independence and maximise more on savings. In the past, the cost of batteries has outweighed the benefits, with the return on investment being impractical for the average household. Now as technology has advanced, and the market has expanded, batteries are continually decreasing in price, becoming a desirable and practical purchase for Australians wanting to maximise energy savings and further reduce their bills.
Government Solar Battery Rebates Are Available
Some State Governments in Australia have turned their focus and funding to solar batteries to assist with the increasing demand for solar storage and the success of Solar PV System installations for households in Australia.

Households that are looking to capture their excess solar power to use in the evening can do so by investing in a smaller battery, while those looking to run their home almost entirely on solar power with backup functionality, will need a larger battery.
Example: If your excess or exported energy per day to the grid is between 6kWh-10kWh, you’d want a battery with the storage capacity of at least 7-10kWh to hold this excess power for you to use at night instead of it being exported to the grid.
TIP: A battery can be included as part of a new solar system or they can be retrofitted to an existing system. Batteries such as Sonnen, Tesla Powerwall 2, Senec and Enphase can be added to any existing system regardless of the existing solar inverter.
