Are you looking for unbiased and clear information on residential energy storage?

The NSW Government recently released the NSW Home Solar Battery Guide; a consumer guide to energy storage for the homeowner.

The guide assists consumers in answering important questions such as how to choose the right battery system and whether a battery would save them money.

To help customers decide, the guide includes a range of helpful fact sheets and practical examples. It explains different types of battery technologies that are currently available, how a home power station works, gives advice on the time it takes to pay back battery costs, what questions to ask when getting a quote and more.

The guide outlines that, in NSW, batteries may be able to provide savings for some households installing new solar PV at the same time. Retrofitting batteries on existing solar systems, or where household consumption is already low, is less likely to save a household money.

The NSW Home Solar Battery Guide is also a useful resource for retailers and installers looking for illustrations and information for their customers.
