Why solar batteries are becoming more compelling than ever

School & Education / Sustainability by Tom Edwards


While the initial investment in a solar battery system may seem significant, the long-term cost savings, especially with available Government rebates and/or incentives, can make it the most cost-effective solution for reducing energy costs and hedging against rising electricity costs.

Additionally, as battery technology continues to advance and prices decline, the economic benefits of solar batteries are likely to become even more compelling. Let’s look into these benefits more closely!

Access Solar Victoria Interest Free Loan of $8800

If you live in Victoria, did you know that Solar Victoria has approximately 4,500 interest loans available, offering up to $8,800 for solar battery installations?  Repayments can be made over a four-year period, making the $$$ savings even more generous.

This is a massive incentive for Victorians to turbo charge their electrification journey and energy independence, and making the transition to renewable energy sources even more financially appealing.

Protect yourself from rising electricity prices

The recent electricity price increases of 20–30 per cent have hit households hard. Let’s face it, most of us get home from work when sun goes down to do another cycle of full time work, i.e. cooking, turning on the dishwasher, vacuuming, not to mention laundry as well.

Having a solar battery allows you to store excess energy when you’re at work during the day, i.e. while it’s cheap (off-peak) and discharging it during peak/demand hours when electricity rates are higher.  Instead of drawing electricity from the grid when you get home to do your full cycle of chores (peak hours), you’ll be powering your activities from your solar battery. This practice has been proven to generate significant savings on your bills.

Energy independence

Having a mini power station on your rooftop plus a solar battery provides a degree of energy independence, especially if you live in a region prone to extreme weather events or unreliable power grids.

Environmental benefits and sustainable living

Solar batteries help reduce greenhouse gas emissions by promoting the use of clean, renewable energy.  Installing solar panels and batteries is a tangible way for individuals and businesses to contribute to a cleaner, greener future.  Batteries also help stabilise the grid by smoothing out fluctuations in solar energy production.

Advanced technology

There have been significant improvements to storage capacity, efficiency, and lifespan of solar panels and batteries over the last few years. More importantly, we are seeing the cost of solar batteries to have been steadily decreasing as well, making them more affordable and attractive as an investment.
