Home Energy Storage

Home Energy Storage Systems are a real game-changer to rising Power prices, and with cost prices expected to fall every year they are set to become a major part of the smart grids of the future.

The NextGen Home Energy Storage System (HESS) is charged overnight at low-cost night-rates, and the power is used during the following day’s peak periods, saving you a small fortune. You may remember the old night-storage heaters that stored heat energy – thse are similar but store electricity that can power your whole house.

Battery capacity is sized to suit individual homes, and offer the benefit of emergency power during a blackout, meaning you can make a coffee, keep the WIFI on and power the kid’s devices and bedside lamp.

You’ll never run out of power, as the storage system is still connected to the grid.

Prices of systems are dependent on typical home usage (kWh), but a typical low-user customer will see their power bill reduced to as low as $9 per month for as long as they are a NextGen customer.

The upfront costs are similar to rooftop solar projects of the same size, but with energy storage systems bills will reduce by around 90% – (with solar panels, the best you can expect is typically 30%).

Smart, simple thinking from NextGen Energy.


HESS

The HESS system is an outdoor-rated, plug-and-play battery system that stores off-peak electricity, and uses it to run your home during peak hours.

Plus it’s futureproof and scalable, allowing you to start small and add batteries later as your needs grow, and your budget allows.

The HESS unit also provides back-up power in case of a power failure, with enough storage to keep your essential services going without mains power.

There are 4 models available that we have simplified to Small (6.3kWh), Medium (12.6kWh), Large (19kWh) and X-Large (25kWh). Each is housed in the same physical box, only the internal battery size changes.

The size is similar to an outdoor heatpump box, and is designed to use the same brackets.

Prices start from approx. $tba for the small unit.
