How it works…

With the right size Solar PV and Battery System it is technically possible to be totally self-sufficient and pay zero for electricity for the life time of the system. The trade-off is that it costs money to install a system that can deliver this capability.

The design of a system that makes economic sense depends on correctly sizing the Solar PV system and considering Battery Storage in the solution. Customers should consider that the cost of batteries is rapidly declining, and if it doesn’t make sense to include battery storage in the system right now, it may make sense in the near future.

The term Battery Ready, refers to a Solar PV system that has been designed exactly for this situation. As soon as battery prices fall below a certain threshold, these Solar PV systems can be complemented with Battery Storage to provide increased self-consumption and even self-sufficiency.

Choosing the right system, including inverters and monitoring systems, is an important consideration for being battery ready. It is sensible to ensure that a Solar PV System does not require expensive upgrades to be able to accommodate Battery Storage.
