In much the same way as the solar industry boomed in Australia 15 years ago, battery storage installation is expected to do the same. Over the next decade, a vast number of households are expected to install battery storage and enter a new era of power management. A large number of businesses across Australia will be contracted to carry out these installations.
Which businesses and individuals will be doing these installations? Good question.
Naturally, you would assume that the same solar companies and electricians will be doing this kind of work. Q. Are they qualified to do so? A. In most cases, NO.
Q. Are there any specific qualifications or special skills required for electricians to carry out battery installation. A. YES.
For obvious reasons, it is important that battery installation is done right and new guidelines by the Clean Energy Council (CEC) of Australia seek to ensure the safety of consumers as the energy storage revolution ramps up. These guidelines require all battery installers to hold Stand Alone Power Systems (SPS) accreditation (design and/or install).
Q. Do all solar installers have CEC SPS accreditation? A. NO.
In fact, in Australia right now, a surprisingly small number of solar businesses are qualified to install battery storage.
Q. Do all bvim network battery installers have CEC SPS accreditation? A. YES.
The Australia-wide bvim network battery installation experts have been carefully screened to ensure that all hold the appropriate CEC SPS qualifications, all have great battery storage knowledge, and all have the battery storage experience necessary to carry out safe and secure installations. We make sure all network installers are kept up-to-date with the latest battery and inverter products, installation technology, and training. Our battery installation experts are well-connected and communicate with us and each other via the bvim technical hotline.
bvim are able to offer you the most competitive battery storage quotes and solar + battery storage package quotes. Of course, there will always be others who are prepared to take shortcuts during the installation to undercut quotes and give you a cheaper price. It is critical that customers appreciate there is a correct way to install batteries and there is a cheap way. bvim have strict guidelines regarding technical training and quality assurance.
