Under the scheme, homeowners can get a 50 percent rebate for installation of a battery storage unit, capped at AUD 4,838 (USD 3,441) in the first year and tapering down to AUD 3,714 by 2026 as the price of batteries comes down.
The roll-out of technologies in Cornish homes comes almost two years on from the launch of the £19 million project, which seeks to build and test the capabilities of a virtual marketplace of distributed energy resources.
It will allow participants to trade energy and flexibility to the grid and wholesale energy market while reducing the energy bills of those taking part.
Sonnen was selected as the technology provider for the residential stream of the project following a competitive tender process in which it fought off competition from seven other firms. It has contracted SunGift Energy to complete the installations of around 700kWh of battery capacity across 100 homes, alongside 300kWp of new solar PV systems to be installed on an estimated 60 homes.

On the octopus energy agile tariff web page you can download 12 months of half hourly 'spot' prices. When I get time I will multiply these by my generation for the same period and see what it would have been worth at those prices. They generally see a big bump from 3pm to 8pm so I am thinking my WSW generation may prove to have been worth nearly as much as the fit plus export payment....I will also try 'left-shifting' my generation by 3 hours and adding 10% to compare against what it would have been worth if it was S facing.
