Due to the crazy times arriving on the energy market, we needed to look for options to get more self sufficient with our energy. My first thought was ofc to go and install solar panels, they are always a great option to reduce your energy costs. Still I was already obsessed with the idea of having a home battery for a long time. It was always a bit too expensive in my opinion, but due to the current worldwide situation, we decided to just go for it.
We got to know Verisol some time ago, because they were also the company we worked with for our airco installation. We were very happy with their services and decided to also work with them for our solar panels and home battery.
The installation wen't very smooth and fast and we also love the look of our battery. It was placed in the hall right in a corner and it also looks very nice to be honest :) The battery itself is big, but not too big and all looks white. It also makes a little noise when starting up in the morning, but not too much. We don’t have any issues hearing it ‘zooming’ in te living room and I think it’s also a very nice view aesthetically in our hall!
After a sunny day, we have energy all night and also the first half of the day after, so I am really happy with it. Even when it’s cloudy the battery still loads a bit. With solar panels only, you normally reduce your energy costs with around 35 percent, BUT when you add a battery, it goes up till 75 percent! Our battery is from the Huawei brand and so far we love it a lot.
It is most definitely a great investment that I don’t regret. Another plus is that in Belgium, you also still receive a compensation for solar panels and also for a home battery!
If you want more information about placing a home battery and solar panels, make sure to check out Verisol. They are one of the best companies I know and offer an excellent service.
Let me know in the comments what you think of our home battery! Very excited to hear more questions.
