The decision to use battery storage to self-power your home is a simple one, but choosing which battery to go for can be tricky.
Let’s recap what home battery storage does. It takes unused solar energy and stores it until you’re ready to use it, even if that’s after sundown. That means you can use your clean energy to power your home when it suits you.
Your evening cups of tea, TV sessions and dishwasher cycle can all be powered with your own solar energy. We’re award-winning battery storage installers, and we only offer premium choices from the biggest names in renewable energy.
Whether you opt for Tesla or Sonnen’s battery, you can feel confident that you’ll experience peak performance and an intelligent system that makes your solar go further. So which one’s right for you?
Tesla battery storage highlights
- 13.5kWh capacity
- 10 year warranty
- Indoor or outdoor installation
- Back up available
- From £7,395
Let’s start with Tesla. Tesla are famous for Powerwall 2.0. Powerwall combines a stylish design with the biggest capacity available on the market – 13.5kWh. Tesla Powerwall made battery storage accessible for homeowners when Elon Musk launched it back in 2015, and it’s only improved with time.
This lithium ion battery has a similar inside to Tesla’s cars. Complete with an integrated inverter, Powerwall 2.0 also comes with a 10 year warranty for added peace of mind. The warranty guarantees a minimum capacity of at least 70% throughout the whole 10 year period.
Powerwall is weather-resistant too. So whether you’re planning on showing it off outside your home or you prefer to keep it tucked inside, you won’t have to worry about a thing. Speaking of keeping it inside, Powerwall isn’t much larger than a double radiator and won’t make any more noise than an average fridge, so you won’t even know it’s there.
Sonnen battery storage highlights
- 5-15kWh capacity (2.5kWh modular)
- 10 year warranty
- Suitable for indoor installation
- Hybrid system available
- From £5300
