Newcastle & Maitland Solar Battery Storage Installers

With the rapid uptake of solar battery storage in both homes and businesses in Newcastle and Maitland, we want to provide battery installations that are not only quality and long-lasting, but are also an easy installation process for the customer.

Battery storage is useful when your energy consumption is high during periods when solar is unavailable, if you want power backup for grid outages, and if you’re wanting to not only save, but make money using battery arbitrage.

Owners who install battery storage get to take their solar production to the next level which saves you money and gives you energy security. Store the energy YOU generate.

The Benefits of Installing Solar Panels

Solar is simply for those who are wanting to reduce energy bills, decrease carbon footprints, increase home value, and wanting to rely on a more sustainable method of energy.

We believe that solar is a smart financial and environmental investment for those wanting to have long-term savings whilst also doing their part in the transition to NetZero.

What's the Hype with Battery Storage?

By utilising battery storage for your home or business, you get to take control of YOUR energy production and consumption. Relying on a stable energy source can ensure the lights stay on during grid-outages.

Battery storage can also allow you to take advantage of your energy using solutions like Amber, which uses off-peak energy or solar, and sells back into the grid in on-peak periods for generous returns.

Commercial Electrical and EV Charging

By investing in quality electrical components, electric vehicle chargers, and installers for your business allows you to have peace of mind and assurance that each solution is tailor-made to your requirements.

Choosing a quality electrician means that all installations meet electrical safety standards and are built to for the long-term.

What are the Benefits of Solar Panels?

Environmental Benefits

Solar panels are a great way to take advantage of a renewable source of energy which doesn’t produce harmful emissions or cost anything to run. The emissions created to produce solar panels are paid off by the carbon savings over a period of time (between 1-3 years).

Increased Property Value

Residential and Commercial properties with solar are typically more attractive to potential buyers as they offer unique and environmental benefits as well as energy independence. This allows for owners to sell properties at higher value which could pay for the system entirely.

Energy Independence

Solar simply allows you to consume electricity that YOU generate. By reducing your reliance on expensive grid energy, you take control of your energy and lower the impact of fluctuating energy prices.

Cost Savings

From day one, you can see immediate savings from your solar panels because of the reduction on grid energy reliance. Excess solar energy is fed into the grid through the day, which reduces your energy bill in electricity credit. Even small solar systems help!

Why Should You Get Solar Battery Storage?

In addition to the benefits of solar panels, energy storage lets you take full advantage of your solar production to be used at all times of the day and night. This gives properties reliable, self-sufficiency and self-reliance.

Most houses and businesses use energy during on-peak periods where electricity is most expensive, which can dramatically increase your bill. Battery storage gives you the unique opportunity to store your excess solar energy for use in these times for ultimate savings. Cooking dinner with solar energy? Sounds good to me!

Backup power

Batteries allow for backup power during power outages, keeping essential appliances running and avoiding the need for a generator.

Cost savings

Battery storage can help property owners reduce their electricity costs by storing energy when it is cheapest and using it when it is more expensive

Reduced grid demand

During on-peak periods, energy is at its most expensive, but with Battery Storage, this allows your property to be untouched by on and off-peak periods.

Energy independence

Without solar or battery, you’re completely at the mercy of the grid. If it goes out, your property has no backup energy options. Storage is an easy, low maintenance way to be self-reliant.

Demand Response Programs

There are trial programs running throughout Australia where participants are paid to reduce energy usage, or feed energy into the grid once alerted on demand for a generous return.

Increased Sustainability

Most households have lots of excess solar energy just being fed into the grid for low feed-in-tariff prices, but batteries allow you to use this valuable energy 24/7, whenever you’d like.

"The team at Elite Power Group were fantastic. The job to put 31 panels on our roof with terracotta roof tiles was technical where a lot of roofing and other solar companies would not even touch. The team of professionals got the job done in a day working from 8am - 6pm to get the job done."
