What size battery do I need?

Home solar batteries

When it comes to getting a solar battery, bigger isn’t necessarily better (but it is more expensive). The goal is to get a system that you can maximise all year round.

The good news is, working out the right size for you doesn’t need to be complicated. We’ve built a simple calculator to help solar households identify the right fit for them. All you’ll need is a copy of your winter power bill. Let’s get started.

The DC Power Co Solar Battery Package has a modular design which means you can get one, two or three batteries as part of your package to easily tailor your system to suit your needs.

Chris had heard about bigger, more expensive batteries but found they were probably a bit too big for his needs.
