How Much Does A Solar Battery Cost?

Reduce Your Power Bills In 2019 With Solar Battery Storage

The Current Price of Solar Battery Storage

With energy prices continuing to skyrocket, Australian households are seeing the benefit of storing excess solar power to use in the evening.

Solaray is now installing solar & battery storage systems that can run a typical family home on solar power 24 hours a day. With the power grid still predominantly powered by coal and gas, installing solar with battery storage is the best way to vote for a clean and renewable power grid in Australia.

The price of solar battery storage starts at $5000 or around $105 a month over 5 years for a smaller Enphase system, while larger batteries start at around $10,000, or around $205 a month over 5 years, depending on the battery’s capacity.

Solar Batteries are compatible with any existing solar system and are connected directly to your meter board where we install a system hub that connects your house to the cloud for advanced system monitoring and management. Solaray Energy Management Systems come with home automation capabilities built-in, and they are fully compatible with micro-grids once they come online over the next few years.

Solar storage has taken off over the last 6 months, to the point where we are now installing nearly all of our systems with either integrated battery storage or as a battery ready solar system. The 3 main solar storage solutions are:

==> Tesla Powerwall

==> Enphase Energy Management System

The price of storage depends mainly on how much capacity you want and any additional features such as backup for when the grid is down and home automation.

Many households are looking to capture excess solar power to use in the evening, which would often be well suited to a smaller battery such as Enphase, whilst other households are looking to run their home almost entirely on solar power with backup functionality. This will typically involve a larger battery such as the Tesla Powerwall or the sonnenBatterie.

Solaray Energy Featured on 7 News Sydney

Electricity prices are continuing to rise, making power prices in NSW amongst the most expensive in the world. This has lead to a new wave of solar power installations as well as thousands of households across Sydney adding battery storage to their existing solar power system.

As Solaray Director explained on Channel 7 News Sydney, we were blown away by the response, with Solaray seeing a rush of orders for the new Powerwall 2 home battery from Tesla, as well as other battery storage solutions from Enphase and Sonnen.

Solar Battery Storage – Value for Money

Solaray Energy - Happy Customer Tesla Powerwall 2 Installation

One of the most common questions we are getting at the moment is: “is solar storage worth the money?”

Our answer is to throw a question back at you: “how much would you be prepared to spend to save, say, $1000 per year? Your answer to this determines when you are ready to buy Energy Storage…

Let’s say you install 5kWh of Energy Storage with an estimated lifetime of 10 years (3,500 cycles).

Let us also assume you will use all of that 5kWh each and every day.

Lastly, let’s assume you are paying 30c per kWh for your power today.

Therefore, your 5kWh of storage would be expected to save $1.50 per day (30c x 5kWh) or $547.50 per year. The batteries themselves should last well in excess of 10 years – although the capacity will slowly diminish over time.

If you were happy to accept that you would get your money back in say 7 years, you would, therefore, expect to pay around $3800 for that 5kW of storage. If you needed to get your money back in 5 years, it would be around $2700, and $5,500 for 10 years, and so on.

The cost of batteries starts at around $5,000 for smaller units such as Enphase and larger batteries such as the sonnenBatterie start at around $13,000 for an 8 kWh battery that can be cycled up to 3 times a day. Because battery systems need to be accurately sized up to match your requirements we encourage you to make an enquiry. A member of Solaray Storage Team can go through your options and present you with a full quote for installation.

How to size up a Solar Energy Storage System?

In reality, we use rather complicated spreadsheets and analysis to work out the best size storage system for you and to make a fairly accurate estimate of your savings.

Naturally, we also take into account the size and performance of your current or future solar system which has a major impact on the value you get from your storage system.
