Sonnen savings add up
As South Australia continues to be a world leader in the switch to renewable energy battery storage has never been more affordable.
For example, it’s possible to get a $12k battery storage system for less than $4k.
“These savings revolve around using a sonnenBatterie and solar, so you are also supporting clean-energy South Australian manufacturing,” says a Sharpe Energy Hub spokesperson.
The battery uses environmentally friendly, cobalt-free, durable-cell technology.
Let’s look at the savings in detail, using calculations based on a household with 6.6kWh of rooftop solar and an energy bill above $650 that joins the sonnenFlat Family plan.
The system price is $11,990, which reduces to $8,990 once SA’s Home Battery Subsidy of $3000 is applied.
Joining sonnenFlat Family effectively saves another $5000 over 24 months (if the customer has existing solar and power bills above $600 a quarter).
This lowers the overall price of the system to $3990 after 24 months.
“Of course there are some terms and conditions that apply, such as site inspections and exact eligibility requirements for each application but the savings are generous,” says the Sharpe Energy Hub spokesperson.
sonnenFlat is best describes as being like a mobile plan where you pay a fixed monthly fee and get a certain amount of data to use.
“By joining sonnenFlat, you can choose the best plan that suites your annual electricity usage by paying a small monthly fee,” says the Sharpe Energy Hub spokesperson.
At present sonnenFlat is waiving that monthly fee for 24 months.
The sonnenFlat scheme provides a guaranteed annual energy allowance that includes solar, battery storage and grid energy usage with no lock-in or exit fees.
“The savings are far better than just relying on independent solar and battery storage,” says the Sharpe Energy Hub spokesperson. “Our consultants and engineers also have a calculator to help determine your individual expected savings over the 2 years when purchasing solar and/or a sonnenBatterie”. You can go to their showroom, which is Covid-19 Aware and adopting best practices, and the calculations can be done while you are there.
As well, Government-backed, zero-dollars-upfront finance, offered through the Clean Energy Finance Corporation, is available to fast-track the installation. This means households don’t have to touch savings or credit cards or alter a mortgage.
