This solution has no upfront costs or lock-in contracts. It is around 30% cheaper than buying a 10kWh battery for your home (over the course of the battery’s lifespan), when considering a home battery system can cost between $8000 to $13,000.
A community battery means you avoid spending years locked in a contract paying off an in-home battery, get the right size battery for your needs and, as its virtual, don’t need to find extra space in the garage to set the battery up.
This solution is also better for our grid. The grid powers our hospitals, schools, home and infrastructure, so we want people to remain connected to support it.
Plus, a community battery increases the use of renewables during the peak hours when the sun typically isn’t shining, so it’s contributing to a more renewable energy mix for WA.
