As a rule of thumb, your solar battery price will rise by roughly upwards of $1,000 for every kWh. For instance, the solar battery storage price of a 5kWh solar unit varies between $1,300 to $2,000 per kWh. This means for a 6kW system, your solar battery cost is likely to be around $5,000 to $10,000. A 10kWh battery solar system would cost anywhere from $7,500 to $12,000 while the price of a 15kWh battery may range between $12,000 to $20,000.
The average Australian household uses up 19kWh per day, which is equivalent to $2,500 in electricity bills. But this number won’t remain consistent all year long. For many homes, their billing costs can fluctuate as far as doubling to compensate for electricity use in the coldest and hottest months of the year. Furthermore, factors such as where you live, who your energy provider is, rising local tariffs and more can affect just how much you need to pay.
In principle, solar panels work based on how much light there is overall. That’s why it’s best to install them where you can get the most light throughout the day according to the length of your daylight hours. For the best results, placing your solar panels where they will have total access to light between 10am and 4pm is ideal. However, in certain conditions, it may still not be enough and that’s why a solar battery storage solution will give you a backup supply of power.
If you use power at very specific times (or conversely, at unexpected times) and require most of your electricity at night while not using much throughout the day, a solar battery can raise the efficiency of your system. A PV solar with battery storage system will allow you to have solar energy even at night and on cloudy days where your solar panels aren’t generating enough power to meet your needs. It’s a reliable source of power that is easy to use, maintain and accumulate savings on. Your battery for solar can be charged during the day so you can use the stored energy at night and still have excess to go back into the power grid for additional savings.
