I wanted to add some more solar panels to my house and install Tesla batteries to make me as self sufficient as possible. After speaking to a number of companies, it was clear that HCB Solar had the knowledge to come up with a system that worked for me. The installation team were fantastic, worked hard and cleaned up after themselves. A brilliant experience and would have no hesitation in recommending them.

I was very impressed with HCB Solar and their attention to detail. There was an issue with my mains supply and potential issue with the solar integration but Anthony and the installation team were upfront and made sure there was a plan of action to investigate and rectify. They never palmed me off, took full responsibility for the issue and ensured the solution would work. I am glad I went with HCB and got a premium product.

Our Solar Batteries

Solar batteries are revolutionising home solar power systems. Battery storage enables more families to use renewable energy to power their day-to-day lives. The result is greater self-consumption of solar generation and reduced energy costs. From 2.5kWh to 15kWh, any home situation can be covered.

Frequently asked questions

Solar batteries typically use one of three chemical compositions: lead acid, lithium ion, and saltwater. However, lithium ion batteries are the most common and best battery storage option for a solar panel system, though other battery types can be more affordable

How much a solar battery will cost will depend on how big a battery you want and whether you are buying battery storage on its own or with an inverter/charger. But could cost between $8,000-$15,000.

Unfortunately, this is not a simple question to answer. How much battery storage you need requires a little math; we need to know the size of your solar system, how much solar energy you produce and the amount of electricity you consume.

The usable storage capacity of a solar battery is the amount of energy that can be stored or discharged by the battery. This battery storage capacity can vary depending on the kW size of the battery you get to go with your solar system, i.e. a 10kW battery vs a 15kW battery.

A solar battery can usually hold its charge for up to 20 years, but this can vary widely depending on a number of factors, including frequency of use and maintenance for example.

Some of the bigger batteries we have available include the Tesla Powerwall 2 with a 13.5kWh capacity and the sonnenBatterie with up to a 15kWh capacity. Contact us for more information on battery storage capacity.

Once your solar batteries are fully charged, any additional solar power that is generated will be redirected and sold to the grid.

With solar monitoring technology it is unlikely you will overcharge your solar battery. These intelligent solar system technologies monitor the systems generation, your consumption and redirects additional energy that’s generated to the grid once the battery storage capacity is full.
