Things to consider before requesting a quote from us

Not all households may benefit from installing batteries. It’s important to gather the right information and carefully consider these factors before making a decision.
»  The risks associated with lithium batteries
»  The quality of the products you are installing and the manufacturer’s warranty terms
»  Your expectations vs the reality of the outcomes you will achieve by installing batteries
»  The significance of the investment vs the actual benefit you will receive
»  Batteries can take anywhere between 5 & 10 years before the investment pays for itself. (are you ok with this?)
»  Do you plan on moving house before the system has paid for itself?
»  Is your existing solar panel system compatible with a battery system?
»  Does your existing system need upgrading or complete replacement before a battery can be installed?
»  Have you explored ways to reduce the amount of energy you use?
