With rising energy costs, sunshine on tap and low interest finance available, there has never been a better time to invest in a solar battery storage solution for your home.

Adelaide offers the perfect environment for solar energy adoption, making the installation of solar panels and batteries a compelling choice. The city enjoys abundant sunlight throughout the year, with an average of over 2,500 hours of sunshine annually. This solar resource potential translates to significant electricity generation and cost savings for residents and businesses.

Installing a solar battery provides several benefits. Firstly, it allows for the efficient harnessing and storage of excess solar energy generated during the day, ensuring a sustainable power supply even during periods of low sunlight or at night. This capability is particularly valuable in Adelaide, where temperatures can soar during the day, leading to increased energy consumption for cooling.

The South Australian Government has been actively promoting renewable energy initiatives, and solar installations align with the state's commitment to sustainability. Incentives such as feed-in tariffs further sweeten the deal, making solar investments financially attractive.

Adelaide faces occasional power outages, whether due to extreme weather conditions or grid maintenance. Installing a solar battery provides a reliable backup power source, enhancing energy resilience. This autonomy is crucial during emergencies, ensuring continuous power for essential appliances and maintaining comfort and safety.

Reducing dependence on conventional grid electricity contributes to a lower carbon footprint, aligning with global efforts to combat climate change. Adelaide's commitment to clean energy initiatives and its emphasis on sustainability make solar solutions not just a cost-effective choice but also a responsible and forward-thinking investment in the region's energy future.

Adelaide residents can save around $1,430 extra each year when they install a new solar battery! Adding a battery storage system size of only 10kWh can unlock this level of savings. South Australians contend with some of the highest power prices in the world, making it all the more logical for property owners to swiftly embrace the solar batteries Adelaide provides. This move serves as a proactive measure to mitigate nighttime energy consumption, thereby further slashing electricity bills.

How do I know if a solar battery is right for me?

Battery storage solutions aren't for everyone. Depending on how much electricity you use, the size of your solar PV system you could earn more selling your power back to the grid, than you would save by buying a battery. 

For those seriously considering a solar battery, it is important to ask the following:
  • How large is your house and what appliances do you want to run from your battery?
  • What is your current electricity usage (eg. Do you use more electricity while the sun is down?)
  • What is your current electricity provider’s feed-in tariff and can you negotiate a better rate?
  • The cost of the battery system (get a solar quote here) and how long it will take to recoup those costs from your expected energy savings
  • How do I know if a solar battery is right for me? batteries compatible with your system?
While solar batteries are a great investment for any home or property owner, there is a lot to consider.
