How much does it cost to get a solar battery installed?

Posted in Getting battery storage

Thinking about a solar battery but not sure how much the installation will cost?

As a rough estimate, the cost of battery installation is usually around $2000-$3500, however with the DC Power Co Solar Battery Package you can get installation from just $1815.

Installation varies from household to household depending on a number of factors, including:

    • Variation in installation and sales prices think of this like you would a builder doing a renovation – each varies in quality and price. With the DC Power Co Solar Battery Package, it’s like you’re buying a flatpack kitchen and getting someone in to install it for you, rather than getting a bespoke kitchen designed from scratch.  
    • The building material of your home – brick tends to be cheaper whereas if you’ve got a weatherboard home, your installer will have to install a fire-protected backing on which to place your battery. This is in line with strict Australian safety standards and will cost a bit extra.
    • The type of battery – the type of battery you get will affect the type of cabling and hardware that’s used, including the type of DC-breakers needed and the thickness of the cabling. Different batteries also come with different manufacturer requirements, all of which impact the final cost.
    • How far your battery is installed from your switchboard – the further your battery is from your switchboard, the more cabling your installer will have to use and build in to connect your battery.
    • Switchboard upgrades – older homes may need switchboard upgrades to fit a battery.
    • Safety inspections – some states require an electrical safety inspector to visit the property and assess the installation. This usually costs a couple of hundred dollars on top of the install cost.
