Calculate your solar or battery savings...

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. ^

 

Is it right for me?

Save up to:
{{result.totalSavings}}* each year
{{ctrl.solarSystemSize}}kW Solar PV
{{result.SavingsPerYear}}
{{BatterySystemSize}}kWh Battery
{{result.BatterySavingsPerYear}}

Every year. *Calculated using the Home plan (A1) and REBS buyback rate (if applicable). It assumes 80% of system output offsets electricity use. ^ Source: Synergy solar data and Clean Energy Council data.

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

Both proven to deliver batteries with long service life, short charging times and high depth of discharge to guarantee maximum efficiency.

Safety

Using one of the safest battery technologies available, to ensure superior battery performance and safety at all times. 

Monitoring

Integrated data gives you a real-time view of how much power you make, store and use – so you can track and learn for a higher return.

Guarantee

Impressive manufacturer warranties give you total peace of mind that your solar battery storage system will perform for the long run.

Specification

Fronius

LG Chem RESU10H

So, what does it really mean?

Best bits

With 6 battery sizes on offer, the Fronius can be expertly matched to your energy usage. It also has one of the highest performance ratings in the current market. 

The LG Chem is not only super sleek but it offers complete flexibility with both indoor/outdoor installation. It also comes with an impressive 10 year warranty. 

Two high performing solutions that meet the demands of tomorrow. Depending on how your house has been set-up (three phase-single phase ), you can be sure that there's an option which will benefit you well into the future. 

The chemistry

Lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4)

Lithium ion 

Lithium batteries can store more energy in a smaller space, compared to lead acid counterparts.

Battery capacity

 4.5kWh - 12kWh  9.8kWh This is the total amount of energy that can be stored in the battery

Total energy throughput

2.5kW -4.5kW
(Depending on system size)

 5kW Comes in different storage sizes, so you get better value. The bigger the battery, the more you can power.

Depth of discharge

80%

80% You can use 80% of the storage – meaning your battery can be used and recharged more.

Operating temperature

0 - 45C

0 - 50C Built for hot, Western Australian conditions

Integrated data portal

Yes

Yes – with your compatible inverter. 
 
Monitor your energy use anywhere. And in real time.

Single phase/Three phase compatibility

Three phase only

Single phase only Will only work with with a three phase power supply.

Where can you house it? 

Indoor floor mount only

Wall mounted or floor standing and either inside or outside. 
 
You’ll need a lockable, enclosed space (like a garage) to store.

Warranty

Up to 7 years (with online registration)

Our single biggest tip when choosing a battery for your home

When you’re finding which system suits your needs, it’s worth looking beyond the upfront costs of buying the system and having it installed.

Comparing the total energy throughput of different systems is a great way to work out the best value for money when you’re choosing a home battery storage system.

So what does energy throughput really mean?


Battery A2 energy throughput - After 3,650 charging cycles it has 6kWh remaining capacity

Compare battery A...

Let’s say you’ve just purchased a 10 kWh battery storage system, with a design cycle life of 3650 charge and discharge cycles. 

The total energy battery A can deliver is 36,500 kWh

With battery B...

Now, let’s say you’ve purchased a 10 kWh battery storage system, with a design cycle life of 6000 charge and discharge cycles.

The total energy battery B can deliver is 60,000 kWh. This means it's better value than battery A in the long run :-)


Battery B energy throughput - After 6,000 charging cycles it has 8kWh remaining capacity
