How to do Solar-Battery WRONG
As South Australia continues to lead the nation’s transition to renewable electricity generation, dubious deals are putting homeowners at risk.
An increasing number of small operators are deceiving their customers by offering small, underperforming batteries, which have no backup facility, a measly 5-year warranty, and are not able to be connected to a VPP.
Solar linked with a battery, linked to a Virtual Power Plant (VPP) scheme is the best way for a household to maximise energy savings while contributing to SA’s green vision.
VPPs are networks of home solar and battery systems combining to generate, store and feed electricity into the grid.
With so many options on the market the solar-battery switch can seem daunting, giving opportunists a chance to prey on unsuspecting clients.
This is where Sharpe Energy Hub comes into play, offering Adelaide’s best range of industry-leading solar-battery combinations tailored by experts to meet specific needs.
Sharpe Energy Hub’s key tool is the Energy Analyser, which crunches consumption figures to show how a household can achieve maximum savings on energy costs.
Every household’s situation is different, which is why the analysis of power consumption and future expectations about energy use must be carefully considered.
It is crucial to install an industry-leading system to gain full long-term benefits from this analysis.
Cheaper batteries cannot compare to the quality of, for example, a Tesla Powerwall.
This comes with the option of backup during a grid blackout, a 10-year warranty, and can be connected to a VPP such as Simply Energy VPP, which is paying up to $2550 in VPP credits over 12 Months.
Government-backed, zero-dollars-upfront finance, offered through the Clean Energy Finance Corporation, is available to fast-track installation.
To sum up the situation, you may pay less up-front for a cheaper battery but you will pay much more in the long run, both financially and in the frustration of having an underperforming system.
Sharpe Energy Hub consultants are here to help you achieve a green future that works.
