Is solar, battery or both right for your home?

How much energy you use each day will help determine the right system size for your property. For example, the average household of 2-3 people in Australia consumes around 18 kilowatt hours (kWh) per day. ^

This is the storage capacity of the battery, with a usable value of around 80%. A depth of discharge (DoD) is set for batteries so they’re never fully drained (draining a battery to empty affects their ongoing capacity retention).

Battery storage might not be right for you just yet because customers with system sizes below 5kW generally don’t reap the most rewards from installing a battery. Still keen to see the difference it could make? Just add a battery.

Frequently asked questions

icon_solid_solarpanels

Technically, yes – but practically, no. Or at least not yet. Batteries which are built to store solar energy are not currently designed to allow you to go off grid. To be fully self-sufficient and disconnect from the grid entirely, your solar PV and battery system size would generally need to much larger to ensure it works properly across all seasons.

icon_solid_smart_tariff

A battery will generally help you to reduce your energy bill. The energy your solar panels generate using the power of the sun is free and the battery will make the most of the way you use this free energy. Changing the way you use energy will have a positive effect on your overall savings. Find out more

Maybe for a few hours. A battery can’t generate electricity, it can only store it. If there is no other generation source (e.g. solar, grid or diesel generator) and your battery has been depleted, it can’t provide power until it has been recharged. Find out more

icon_solid_fronius_battery

Yes, you can! This is one of the main benefits of installing a battery system. During the day, your solar panels can generate energy and your battery stores any excess generation you may have until it is fully charged (at battery capacity). Find out more

Is solar power right for your home?

With Perth receiving around 300 days of sunshine per year, renewable energy sources sound ideal for all WA households, but there are a few tips and tricks you should know before delving in.

The angle of your roof, direction of your home, shade and even dirt can all play a part in how effective solar panels are for your home.

Maximise your solar investment

Some simple changes to when and how you use energy can reap big rewards.

  • Shift energy use to daytime hours
    Your panels produce clean, renewable power throughout the day, even if it’s cloudy. But when the sun isn’t shining, they’re not able to produce electricity. To make sure that you’re using as much of the free electricity your solar system produces as possible, try shifting most of your electricity use to hours when the sun is shining. Timers are a great way to make sure you’re getting the most out of your solar system. By setting a timer to larger appliances (like the dishwasher or washing machine) you can use these through the middle of the day, even when you’re not home.
  • Improve your energy efficiency 
    Saving electricity does require some effort, but if you start with a couple of small changes, it doesn’t have to be a daunting task. Try implementing the following easy tips. Take a look below at what appliances contribute cost to electricity use around the home.

Keep your thermostat at the right temperature

For summer that’s between 24–27˚C and winter, 18–20˚C.

Replace old refrigeration units

New fridges and freezers uses on average 40% less energy than ones that are 15 years or older.

Install energy efficient lighting

Lighting can account for 10–25% of electricity bills, so it can be worthwhile.

Be guided by the energy star rating

When buying new equipment, the more stars the better.
