9.69kW Solar + Battery System – Henley Beach

September 13, 2022

The Back Story

Dyann approached us during the early stages of the build of their new family home to make sure her solar and battery solution was specified in the new build plans. When designing the solar system with the customer, NRG Solar Consultant Darren liaised with the customer's engineers to ensure the roof structure was suitable for the panel design. Darren also ensured the electrical work could be pre-planned and the cables run from the solar were all factored into the electrical design.

The Equipment Installed

  • 34 x WINAICO Panels
  • Fronius Primo Inverter
  • Fronius Smart Meter
  • Clenergy Racking
  • 2 x Tesla Powerwall units
  • 1 x Electric Vehicle unit

The Result

"I initially came to NRG in order to help reduce my power bill, after conducting some research about solar and its effectiveness I knew I had to get it installed straight away! NRG has predicted that with my 15.5kW solar system I should be able to save over $7,000 a year on electricity. That’s a return on investment time frame of 2.5 years.
The environmental impact is just as phenomenal. It is estimated that I can reduce my CO2 output by over 13,500kg each year."

How did you find the NRG experience? 

"The NRG process was streamline from start to finish, it was such an easy procedure. Eddy always looked after me and ensured that I was kept in the loop of everything that was going on throughout the installation. I very much appreciated the communication. This also extended to the Solar Consultant Darren and to the electrician and installers who always left the worksite cleaner then when they found it."

Tell us how you find using the Tesla App? 

"The Tesla App is fantastic! I can see where all of my power is going, what is being used, what is charging and how full of charge everything is - in real time! I can see how much charge my Tesla Powerwalls have and if I have enough power stored to charge up my Tesla Car.

One of my favorite features about the app is the ability to generate power consumption graphs. By physically being able to see when my power is spiking and knowing what appliances are causing this has made me much more mindful of my power behavior."

"Through this solar installation and the Tesla App, I have been able to take control of my power usage and behavior. I am now incredibly mindful of my power usage and this is something I am committed to."
