What a pleasant experience!!

published

Don't you just hate it when the Tradie's turn up on time, are friendly and engaging and aren't affraid to answer questions. And then they have the nerve to do a super neat job and clean up after themselves. In all seriousness (B&J) my two electricians/installers, went above and beyond the call of duty, they spoke too me at length to discuss how and where I would prefer the battery and associated equipment mounted. I could rabbit on all day how my expectations were exceeded and how the boys took their time and never complained even though it was a pretty hot day!!!

Wouldn't hesitate for a second to recommend them!!

A great team of efficient tradies

published

Twelve days from order to installation. The team were on time, efficient and explained to me what they were doing. They were very professional and friendly. The whole installation only took three hours. Now to see how much we will save by having a battery. So far I would recommend this company.

Electricity Consumption made Easier

published

We recently installed a solar bank. We are happy customers. Day of installation went very smooth. Our installer also helped us get our hive app up and running. I found app easy to read. The colour coding really helped. Because of the app we are now more aware of our electricity consumption and when is the best tine to use our electrical appliances.

Very cautious about this offer

published

I received the battery offer from this company, and called. Over the phone they told me if I added a 5 kWh battery to my existing 5 kW system, I could save circa $500 per quarter. Really? I asked them to explain how that was possible and the answer was "case studies show it", which isn't an explanation.

Overall I found it a call full of sales tricks, but few hard facts. Maybe they are legit, but unless they can show some figures and not "case study" I'd be very careful.

60 year payback best case

published

Sunbank Solar’s service and installation was great. However, I still have no details on the Sunbank Solar powerplan that was supposed to be issued last month. I installed a HIVE battery system for $6600. The system has been returning 0.30cents profit per sunny day from load balancing. At this pace I’ll get payback in 60-70 years if every day of the year was sunny. So, this system is not economically viable. I would have done better to invest in more solar panels. I have emailed Sunbank solar for details on the energy plan and why my return is so low. The only reply was that the energy plan has been delayed due to COVID.

one of the best things i have ever done.

the first words that come to mind are perfection, excellence, understanding. from the very first talk with this company everything has been honest and caring. you are spoken to not as a dollar sign but as a person. i only required battery connection and have found everything fine. the installer did a very professional job and explained all details in a language that i could understand.i could not recommend sunbank solar any higher. i tell everyone just how good this company was and still are. by, ponytail man.

Firstly they have to notify you if they wish to enter your property and secondly they monitor the battery condition performance remotely so they should not have to enter your property unless there is a problem.

I would like to hear from anyone who has battery installed by Sunbank and is part of of a VPP plan. I am particularly interested as to what savings they are earning and what their payback period is.
I have installed A$9000 battery but cant get any help or info out of Sunbank, Members Energy or Energy Locals.
Thanks

Mick, My name is Phil Long and we have recently fitted an Eveready battery pack (5kw )to our solar system( It has 20 panels - 6kw system ). We have only just switched over to Members Energy and as yet have to receive an account from them. Our last account from Red Energy for the last three months was reduced by approximately $58.00 as the battery system was only operational for the last month. There are only two adults living at our residence and most days our battery is 95 to 100% full by evening and still has 4 to 8% capacity by next sunrise so our house is not drawing power off the grid thereby saving us money during the night. Daytime the system is set up to run off the solar generation. Reading our Red Energy bill from 26th July to 24th October 2020 we were credited with 1125kw at $0.102/kw giving us $114.75 credit. Usage off the grid amounted to 392kw at $0.28459 giving us a cost of $111.56. Our battery pack has only been operational since the beginning of mid October and we will not receive a Members Energy Account until January which will reflect our savings by employing a battery pack in conjunction with our solar panels. That $58 saving mentioned above is only an estimate. Members Energy returns have been estimated to be from $0.17 to $0.24 / kw depending on when they take power from our system be it from the battery or direct from the solar system as they said the higher returns are in peak load periods but they stated that they would not flatten the battery and always leave 5 to 10% capacity. Hope this information is what you are looking for, Phil Long.

Hello Phil,
Thanks for taking the time to answer in such detail, it has really helped me.

Your situation is much the same as mine. Your figures match mine almost exactly.

The problem I had was in getting some idea of what return I'd get from the VPP scheme

Just this morning I rang Sunbank and had a long, fruitful discussion with Ian Sinson.
He gave me some much needed info on the buyback frequency and earnings. The real important NEWS was that the buyback of the excess energy from my system comes from BOTH the battery and whats being recorded from my panels by the smartmeter at 30 mins intervals, I was originally informed in writing that this would be from the battery ONLY.

I'll let you know how I get on after getting my first account.

Thanks again

Mick Williams
