New partnership designed to bring clarity to Aussie solar & battery buyers
Since the dawn of the solar rebate, consumers have had to navigate murky pricing and questionable marketing tactics. From businesses that lead with promises of â€śthousands offâ€ť when most donâ€™t qualify for rebates, to using lesser quality materials to keep prices low, it can be a confusing process for Australians looking to move to renewable energy at home.
DC Power Co, a company made for solar households, has partnered with another Australian business â€“ Redback Technologies â€“ to offer a better solar and battery solution. Both companies believe home batteries are essential to energy security for Australian homes in the face of an aging energy grid. They also want Australian households to be in the driving seat of this renewable future.
It was important to DC Power Co to stand apart from others in the solar space in a few important ways.
DC Power Co has put together a series of packages and worked with Redback Technologies to build an experienced installer network. The Redback Smart Hybrid System is an all-in-one, modular system so it can be sized to fit your needs. Combined with quality panels, this really is an unbeatable choice for your first (and last!) renewable energy investment.
Launching in NSW first, the package will then be available to other states in coming months. The packages start at just $11,150 and feature full installation services.Â

*With a 6.6kW solar power system and a 4.8 kWh battery priced at $12,700, you could save an estimated $2034 per year. Estimated savings are based on solar generation of 1300kWh per kW per year, and using a weighted average value of that generation at 20c per kWh (combination of exports and offsetting electricity purchasing). Battery cost savings are based on a depth of discharge of 90 per cent of the battery and an assumption that the battery will be filled 90 per cent of cycles (one cycle per day). This is a so-called simple payback and does not take into account any increases in electricity prices, fluctuations in feed-in tariffs, degradation of solar panels or batteries.
