When selecting a solar battery, you may want to consider:


  • Whether your solar energy production and household energy usage is suitable
  • Whether your home is right for a battery.

In order to maximise savings from a battery, you will need to have enough excess solar to charge the battery each day and enough energy usage to discharge it each day. When considering which solar battery is right for your home, there’s a few things to keep in mind:


  • Can you install a battery on the wall or floor?
  • Can you install a battery indoors or outdoors at your home?
  • If outdoor, do you have a suitable area with adequate shade or covering?
  • Do you have enough space to install a battery?

    Batteries need enough wall space for mounting the hardware. They also need to be separated from habitable areas, windows and doors. Your AGL installer will determine the locations suitable for a battery system during site inspection. If you live in Adelaide and have an existing AGL or non-AGL solar system, you may be eligible to join the final phase of AGL’s Virtual Power Plant. Purchase LG Chem or Tesla Powerwall battery technology at a great price.
