Every application or situation will be different, but if you install a solar panel system that is supported by a battery storage system you can achieve energy efficiencies and reduce your reliance on grid based power. They are also useful in situations where there are power outages or costs escalate due to increased demand or peak usage times.

For some people the ability to reduce their reliance on the grid is worth more than just the financial gains they can make from reducing their bills. It can create a sense of independence and self sufficiency which contributes to a more sustainable way of life.

The operating life of our range of products can be 10 years or more depending on the model and application which gives you great peace of mind.

Whether a certain amount of energy is enough to run a household will depend on just exactly how you consume energy & the products that have to be powered. Our team can assess your situation to give you guidance on what may be suitable.

Similar to the previous question relating to 10kW being enough or not – the quantity of panels or batteries isn’t the most important factor as they all come in different shapes, sizes, capacities & efficiency levels. So depending on the specification & your application the quantity required will vary.

Our team can assess your situation to give you guidance on what may be suitable.
