Although we can’t predict what the trend will be, this year’s events has clearly shown us that the best thing you can do for your household is to make it future proof. While many of us could receive pretty shocking energy bills at the end of this quarter due to the lock-down, others who have chosen to achieve energy independence will have this burden off their chest.
#2: Be the last house with the lights on in your street.
There’s another great benefit from being energy self-sufficient – you are protected from unexpected power outages. When the grid fails and this can happen due to various reasons from severe weather conditions to a grid overload, other homes in your street will be pitch black but you will still be able to power your essential appliances whether it’s a TV or a fridge with power backup feature available with our sonnenBatterie.
This backup accessory is called sonnenProtect-Plus*!
Solar power generation does not have to go to waste. When the grid goes down – with Black Start function, you can rest assured knowing that during the blackout, the sonnenBatterie hybrid 9.53 can restart itself after a full shut down, and utilise the energy from the directly connected solar system, to ensure you have continuous backup energy supply. Meaning you can use your essential appliances without interruption during times of extended blackouts.
*This accessory is an additional component, discuss with your local sonnen partner to install or add.
#3: Save the planet – one household at a time.
Every cloud has a silver lining and with COVID-19 keeping us at home, we could see a great impact on the environment as the pollution from travelling has been reduced. So why not extend it to our households and make this less of a pollution source? By committing to clean energy and becoming energy self-sufficient, you can make a long-term positive environmental contribution that benefits your home, your community and the economy.
