4 kWh System Sanyo Panels


« on: July 25, 2017, 08:03:04 AM »

Hi all

Was interested to read to BBC page linked here on solar panels  http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-40704036

About half way down it makes reference to ' Some companies already offer consumers a battery package, which means they can store to excess power and either use it when they get home from work, or export it to the grid'

Just wondered if people know which companies offer this and is it as simple as it sounds and is this available to the home owners

Appreciate any views or comments.

Many thanks

Mike

Thanks for the info

I think I misread it in that it was saying............. some of the energy suppliers offer consumers the packages

That would have been nice !

That's a brilliantly written piece. I think it explains everything.

I'm guessing that 2020 may bring economical storage (for me), but it's only a guess. I'd like to see some standardisation in warranties such as X cycles and X years, ideally 5,000+ cycles and 10+ yrs.

For now I'm having fun watching and learning, and of course piggy backing off of Dan B's exploits.

That's a good overview. It's missing one final piece of the puzzle - the ability to sell back energy from home storage to the grid. We don't need a solution today, but there does need to be a common cross provider plan for the future.
