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. ^

* A typical Australian house consumes around 16 kilowatt hours (kWh) of electricity per day. This means that a 1-2 kW system could displace 25-40 percent of your average electricity bill. Source: Clean Energy Council

Is it right for me?

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).

The battery size is the storage capacity of the battery, with a usable power output of around 80% of that value. A depth of discharge (DoD) is set for batteries so they’re never fully drained (draining a battery to empty affects its future performance and capacity retention).

Can I add battery storage?

Absolutely – but battery storage might not be right for you just yet. Batteries do help to reduce your energy bill, however customers with system sizes below 5kW generally don’t reap the most rewards from installing a battery. Still keen to see the difference? Go ahead and add a battery.

Let’s add a battery

Add a battery storage solution

Households similar to your's have seen extra benefit from an energy storage solution. Here's our recommendation

This is enough to power a 5 kW wall mounted air conditioner unit for {{selecteAirConHours}} hours.

What do you want it to do for you?

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.

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

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

SolarReturn Purchase Plan

The average sized SolarReturn system for homes can cost between $5,000 to $8,000.  We understand that not everyone can afford to pay for a system upfront. 

That's why a SolarReturn Purchase Plan is coming soon

This will allow you to pay for your own solar system over time through your electricity bill, with no upfront payment.
Leave us your details and we'll be in touch in the coming months once we have all the details confirmed.
