Set your sights on a renewable future with solar and battery storage technology
Friday, 27 Apr 2018

Since solar energy was first introduced into the Australian market, the sceptics about whether solar systems are worth the investment have been silenced.

Set your sights on a renewable future with solar and battery storage technology

With constant product development, market research and technological advances, solar photovoltaic (PV) systems have dramatically improved in performance and efficiency while also become a lot cheaper to purchase.  

Following the same trajectory as solar PV systems, battery storage has defied the predictions of many industry experts and have become greatly cheaper over recent years. To pick up a battery storage storage system two decades ago, you would be looking at paying upwards of $4000 per kilowatt for a lithium-ion based systems.

Having experienced a rapid price drop as solar PV, you will be looking to pay well under $250 per kilowatt for a better performing system.

As technology advanced and cost decreased, the demand for solar systems and battery storage technology skyrocketed, to the point where solar energy has become a dominant source of energy across Australia. Source: www.slideshare.net.

With the combination of affordability and high quality performance, Australian residents have been investing in more solar than ever before. As our energy reliance becomes increasingly transferred away from fossil fuels to renewables, the opportunities to expand how we use and  harness our energy will also continue to grow.

Realising development comes from innovation, the energy division at AICA is setting the benchmark for clean, renewable energy systems for your home or business. Constantly investing time and research into new leading energy technology, AICA have the resources and experience to ensure you that your system will end your days of high power bills at an affordable cost.  

If you are looking to utilise the benefits of your own private source of energy, the energy division at AICA energy are here to help you on your way to a sustainable future.

Is a solar-plus-battery solution suited for your energy needs?

As you may have read in the battle of the batteries there are specific batteries to suit what size solar system you have, how you want to use your energy and where you are wanting the system to be installed (home or business). But in the end, we have the sole intent on saving you money and preparing your property for self-efficiency well into the future. To help you with your way towards a solar solution for you, we’ve broken down the market into residential and commercial needs.

For homes

Battery storage gives you the ability to optimise your home’s consumption of the solar-generated electricity by using the stored energy to reduce or completely cut out the high energy bills in your bi-monthly rates or avert the stored energy to peak times where your consumption will be significantly higher. Whether this is to be during hot summer days when you have the air conditioner blasting or on wet weekends when the kids are all inside perched in front of the television, your battery system will operate accordingly and save you on your bills during times where energy consumption is at its peak.

For businesses

The same optimisation of utility rates applies to business owners as well, especially ones that see a huge spike in rates with demand charges or when energy consumption soars during peak rate times. Whether you’re in big business or you’re in the start-up phase, your energy consumption is bound to be a lot higher than residential consumption and likely to be costing a lot in energy bills. Energy storage is the best way to utilise your energy consumption in the best way so you can use all of the electricity you need when you need it, but also have the option of re-purposing your stored energy in times when you need it most.

The decision to add storage will largely depend on your energy usage, but due to the ever-rising power bills and current government incentives, battery storage is becoming a widely accessible and affordable solution for Australians everywhere.  

For more information on a solar-plus-storage system, don’t hesitate to call us on 1800 242 228 for a free consultation on how we can help eliminate your bills.
