We are attempting to educate one person at a time, that it only takes 2~3 years to break even on your Solar investment, by including Energy Storage you instantly become Energy Independent, Batteries may take a further 1~3 years to brake even if you are a high energy consumer, by investing in Energy Storage you instantly become Energy Independent, with FREE Energy for the next 20+ years!
However, there are a few Pros & Cons to consider, these relate to any system, it's what the Total Daily kWh Energy Generated, and what the Property's kWh Consumption is, using just Solar as an example, the kWh Consumed between Solar-Sunset to Sunrise is 5kWh energy, then that would be the smallest kWh Capacity anyone should be Recommending.
The BIG Pro: People need to start looking at Energy Storage, like a Tank of Petrol ...people that already use a Generators for back-up-power, save a fortune on Fuel, as Systems with Energy Storage, the Fuel Generator will only start when there is no other power.
The BIG Con: People Exporting there Solar Energy into the State Grid at say 10c kWh, have to Gift the first 800kWh of energy to pay for the $80 "Service Charge" to "Remain Connected" to the State-Grid, but what people are Not aware of, is that Your Solar is going to your Neighbours down the line, where the "Rip-off Retailers" Charge say 30c kWh for your energy, thus Profiting $240 from you First 800kWh energy, and the remaining energy you export is making more profit.
Many people unaware of how compact a modern Micro Grid looks Like ! This is what an 8 solar panel (DAT-8) Module looks like, a DAT-8 Generates 38kWh per Day, DAT-8 Module replaces over 17 solar panels of equal Watts, commonly Fitted to Rooftop Homes.
We believe that with Solar & Energy Storage at it's lowest ever, Energy independence is starts from only $10'000 for a 19kwh Consumer, and Totally Transportable, like a Fridge & Hills Hoist!
Our Vision: To see every Australian backyard with a 4 Panel Dual Axis-solar Tracker (DAT), as when fitted with 4x 440W Solar Panels, a DAT-4 unit Generates 19kWh peak energy per Day! According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, the average household Spends $40 week on Energy, so if you are paying $0.30kWh that equates to 19kWh per Day.
Also as some Electric vehicle store up to 100kWh Energy, 10 times more stored energy than the average Household. So, why can't that energy be used to power the home when plunged in, then the vehicle can be Charged at Off-peak Rates Overnight, or at Sunrise when a Solar Array starts Generating Energy at approx. 6am.
We hope the deceptively named "Energy Retailers" (Who Don't actually Pay for the energy you consume) will become obsolete in the very near future, as Micro Power Generators have already started selling there Energy Directly to Consumers via P2P Energy Trading, this technology is currently been rolled out in Australia & world wide by the Australian company "Power Ledger", the Energy is being Paid for via Crypto Currency, we believe that is the Future of the Energy sector!

Becoming Energy Independent requires just 3 items;
1) Solar Energy 2) Energy Storage 3) The Sun.
If you already have Solar installed you are well on your way, However unless you invest in Energy Storage you will remain ENSLAVED to accepting what the deceptively named energy retailers charge for energy from Sunset to Sunrise, this is commonly 300% more than any Feed-in-Tariff (FIT) Offered by Retailers, remember Retailers do NOT actually pay for the energy you consume, they make approx. 45% profit on your consumption & only supply you with a bill.
1) Solar Panels: We supply several.
- 300W, 120cell, Half cut panel technology, 12BB (12 wire Bus-bar) with PERC technology.
- 380W 72cell with either 6BB, 9BB or 12BB with PERC panel technology.
- 435W, 144cell, Half cut panel (module) technology with PERC technology.
- 500W, 96cell solar panels Generate 85% more energy for 25+ years, than old 270W panels!
2) Battery storage & Why they are becoming so popular ?
- Because REAL energy independence only starts when you Store more kWh energy than consumption from Sunset to Sunrise! As that allows you to self consume your own energy after sunset, instead of exporting your unused daytime energy into the state grid for measly Rebate!
- When it is smarter to Save *30cents kWh by consuming your stored energy when required, usually after Sunset and through to the next Sunrise!
3) An Inverter to Control your Micro Power Grid.
- Hybrid Inverters controls every aspect of your Power management System: Some Hybrid inverters provide multiple DC & AC power management options, allowing you to select where power is drawn from & when it is needed. Traditionally if your off-grid and drain your Battery bank after sun-set, some hybrid inverter can trigger the Automatic Generator Start (AGS) function or if State-Grid connected, the option to Import power as the third fail safe option, prior to a Black-out situation.
Once a Micro Grid is installed, it instantly start generating savings, by not needing to import energy via an Electricity Retailer, that DON'T actually supply or pay for the electricity you consume, many people are unaware that Retailers can make over 45% profit for simply supplying you with an energy bill.
Micro Power Grids can be a Self-funded investment that pays for itself in 3~6years with energy savings, leaving you with NO ongoing Power costs for decades to come, only if your system is correctly matched to your daily energy/power consumption!
Totally Off-Grid systems don't really have a break even time frame, they only have a "Cost to purchase, install & maintain", Click Here & select an Investment Calculator closest to your "Electricity Consumption", the various calculators will give you a benchmark break-even time frame, based on power Savings and ongoing financial savings based on the equipment you choose.
If you plan Nothing, you will succeed at Nothing !
