3 easy steps is all it takes!

Battery storage is an exciting new technology, but there are a few things to consider before making an investment in a battery for your home.
As a guide, you’ll need to consider:

  • Your electricity usage. How large is your house and what appliances do you want to run from your battery?
  • What is the cost of the battery system (including installation and maintenance costs) you are looking to purchase, and how long will it take to recoup those costs from your expected energy savings?
  • If you already have a solar system, you’ll need to find out what battery systems work best with your existing solar system as this may affect the price.
  • You may also wish to speak to your retailer about how adding a battery may affect any feed-in tariff you currently receive.

Different systems suit different needs so it’s important to talk to one of our solar specialists to help you decide on what battery best suits your household.

For every quote you obtain from Sunbank Solar, a ‘Quote Record’ will be generated in the RateSetter system, ready for you to apply for the subsidy.

Sunbank may even generate the Quote Record while they are with you during a site visit at your home.

If you intend on applying for finance you will need to do this online. Sunbank will come to your home with a tablet or mobile device and step you through the subsidy application process and assist you to apply for finance.

What’s the right battery solution for me?

Solar battery storage isn’t a one size fits all solution. Your PV solar system and how you use power will help determine the right capacity for you.

The capacity of a solar battery is how much power it can store. But getting the biggest battery isn’t always the best option for every household. We want to match a battery solution to you. Making sure your battery stores the right amount of power you generate without too much over flow or without wasted space.

Choosing the right battery capacity will see you getting a better return on your investment.

With a number of modular systems also available you can expand your system if your household needs change. Reducing waste and increasing solar usage when the sun goes down.
