With electricity prices set to soar in Australia this July, households in NSW will be slugged almost 20% extra for the price of electricity over the course of the year. In NSW the average household should expect to pay approximately $319.00 per year extra on their bill.
External factors out of the consumers control are to blame in this instance. However, there is respite. You as the consumer have the ability to substantially reduce the cost of your electricity bill (without the need to reduce your personal consumption)
NSW consumers can seek relief with the sonnenBatterie, a real ongoing solution to unrelenting rising costs.
A sonnenBatterie installation would result in immediate savings. The sonnenBatterie is a solar storage battery which captures energy your solar PV system produces during the day that would otherwise be lost without storage. The sonnenBatterie is designed to work with all existing PV systems and is incremental in design. This means the battery can be mixed and matched between 4kWh all the way up to a 16kWh storage capacity depending on your needs.
How much will I save installing a sonnenBatterie?
Savings will differ greatly depending on your individual circumstances, including the size of your Solar PV system and the size of your sonnenBatterie. The calculations below are based on the average Australian household electricity consumption rate in 2017. See below how much can you save with a sonnenBatterie
Small system – a sonnenBatterie eco 8.4 coupled with a 4kWp system could expect to save approximately $1,760 in the first year from the date of installation. Over the following 20 years, the system could save the household approximately $45,760
Large system – a sonnenBatterie eco 8.10 coupled with a 10kWp system could expect to save approximately $4,000 in the first year from the date of installation. Over the following 20 years, the system could save the household approximately $104,000.
These calculations are based on a cost/kWh of $0.28, with a yearly household consumption of 7,000kWh & 16,000kWh respectively.
Figures are rounded and take into consideration a 3% price increase to the cost of electricity each year for the duration of the calculation.
Savings are optimised by purchasing the correct size system and sonnenBatterie for your home. The correct size system is determined by your electricity demands, not necessarily the size of your home. By optimising your system, savings will be realised faster than if you purchased the incorrect size system.
If your electricity demands increased in the future, the sonnenBatterie can be expanded by increments of 2kWh which allows the battery to grow with the consumer.
The data provided should be used as a gauge only. Savings could vary greatly depending on the future cost of electricity and your personal consumption.
