Following a decade of domestic success, SENEC has now expanded internationally, with Australia becoming a key focus for the German manufacturer. Having established a retail network throughout the country, SENEC is now poised to become a household name in the worlds fastest growing storage market.
With more than 20,000 systems sold, SENEC is one of the world’s most popular brands for innovative energy and storage solutions. SENEC has been repeatedly honoured by EuPD Research as a Top PV Brand Power Storage. The SENEC.Home recently received the award “Top-Storage-System 2017”. The news magazine Focus gave the company the title “Growth Champion 2017”. Thanks to intelligent features such as the SENEC.Cloud 2.0 and the SENEC.Cloud To Go. These energy solutions from the German manufacturer are among the most innovative and economical solutions on the market.
The Enphase battery system is a neat and effective method of adding energy storage to any solar power system.
The batteries are connected directly to your main electrical switchboard without the need to upgrade your existing solar power system and of course are semalessly added to an Enphase micro-inverter controlled solar power system.
This is achieved by adding the Enphase Envoy control/monitoring unit at your main switchboard.
Does battery storage make sense for you?
There are several other systems we have used and can recommend, these include;
These use the BYD battery range to provide energy independence
This uses the LG Energy Solutions RESU low voltage battery.
Whether battery storage stacks up for you is dependent on many factors. It is clear that financial viability alone doesn’t necessarily drive the decision. The best scenario is when you:
- have paid off your solar system and it is “battery ready”,
- are on a high electricity rate; and
- have relatively low demand.
In this scenario, your solar system is generating significant excess electricity and a battery will make financial sense.
To summarise, it’s not just the cost of the battery that counts, but the value you can extract from the battery, from storing electricity for your own use later in the evening to reducing time of day demand charges.
There is no simple “one size fits all” solution and it is relatively complex to determine the right size for a solar and battery system. To assist you please seek advice from your local LG Solar Specialist.
As a rough guide, a residential solar system with a battery solution will have a payback period of 6 to 10 years.
How to choose your solution
We will look at your specific tariff structure, demand profile, energy consumption and most importantly solar export as this is what will charge the battery, export during winter is of concern.
This detailed analysis will define the viability of a battery solution in your particular situation and is the most complex and important part of the process. Proper modelling will ensure good outcomes.
