These inverters are capable of providing backup supply to nominated circuits in the event of a power failure
Will an energy storage solution suit me?
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 contact us by filling in this form.
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.
There are also strict requirements to where a battery can be located and any additional fire rating provisions that could be required.
Our reputation as designers and installers of high quality grid connected systems is unparalleled and we intend the same reputation for our energy storage systems.
