What to look for in a solar battery: Hazel’s story

Posted in Getting battery storage


If you’ve got a solar system, chances are you might have thought about getting a solar battery. They’re growing in popularity by the year, in fact Australian home energy storage has now hit a record 1 gigawatt hour of storage capacity – that’s the equivalent of eight of the South Australian Tesla big battery! 

There are a number of solar battery brands available, so weigh up what you’re looking for in a solar battery with what each product can offer you.

For Hazel, the DC Power Co Solar Battery Package ticked all the boxes.  



At DC Power Co, we created a battery package that is high in value, and low in price at just $6750 plus installation.

There are a few reasons why we’ve been able to make our battery package one of the cheapest in the market, and it starts with cutting out the middlemen. They are:

  • Our direct-to-you model avoids a long line of sales people taking a cut.
  • Modular design means that you can easily tailor your system to suit your needs. 
  • AC-coupled (or DC-coupled), so it can sit alongside your solar system and not impact existing warranties.
  • Free delivery, so you don’t have to pay for your installer to pick it up.
  • Control over who installs your battery system, so you can choose from our preferred installers or go with your own. 


Simple installation

We want our customers to have a choice over who installs their solar battery, but we also know convenience is key. So we’re teaming up with our trusted installation partner Service Stream to offer our DC Power Co Solar Battery Package with installation. 

If you’re in Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra, Perth or Brisbane, you can get your DC Power Co Solar Battery Package installed by Service Stream starting from $1815 (costs vary depending on a number of factors, so we’ll help you get a quote for your home).

Prefer to go with your own, trusted installer? No worries, you can choose your own installer and organise installation with them yourself. It’s up to you. 


Good looks 

Solar battery technology has come a long way over the past few years. The DC Power Co Solar Battery Package is compact and streamlined, so it won’t look like a washing machine!
