Tesla Powerwall vs LG Chempro
The future is here in Australia with the Tesla Powerwall and the LG Chempro. Home battery storage systems are set to change the way we live and reduce our reliance on the coal fired power stations. So who wins you may ask, the short answer to this is everyone; even your energy retailer.
Quite simply the latest offerings from Tesla’s Powerwall and LG’s Chempro are brilliant as they offer a daily amount of energy storage although they are both expandable and can offer much more benefit at cost. Coupled with a hybrid inverter these battery systems could almost wipe out your bills by allowing you to export power once your battery is fully charged. Your retailer will then ‘on sell’ the power it has bought from you at a much higher rate making money and placing less demand on the grid.
So with a large 6 KW solar panel array and a 5 KW hybrid inverter (LG Chempro Battery Deal) you could charge the Powerwall / LG Chempro and have plenty of daytime energy to use.
