If you’re the first family in Australia to install a Tesla Powerwall you’re also the first family that can speak to the annual savings you’re getting from the combination of Solar Panels and the Tesla home battery solution.
Natural Solar customers the Pfitzner family had a power bill of $2,289.17 in 2015 – their bill in 2016 was just $178.71.
In the October quarter the family made a profit – $50.25 compared to the previous year for the same period at $496.93.
Essentially, they’re powering their home for 50 cents per day!
We all know power bill seem to be going up and up and up, so why not consider the benefits of Solar?
The main issue for people is the up front cost. I requested an “instant quote” for Solar and a Powerwall 2 (the larger capacity Tesla Battery just launched) and it looks just shy of $17,000.
Now on a saving to the scale of the Pfitzner family, that up front investment would be repaid in just under nine years. Who has the money to do that up front?
Staggering savings for a Sydney family with 5kWp of solar panels, an inverter and the Tesla Powerwall. For the Pfitzner’s a return on investment of just six years – much less than the 20 we heard when the Powerwall was first announced.
