Powering a suburban house using a battery was once considered a far-fetched idea, but for tens of thousands of Australians, it’s now a reality.
Retired engineer Peter Youll tried it – and has been delighted by the results. Now he powers not only his entire household off a battery that hangs out of the way on a wall in his garage, but also his new electric car.
“Once we installed the battery, our electricity bills went down to nothing,” he says. “We now produce and store much more power than we can possibly use.”
