What’s included in a standard battery installation as part of AGL’s virtual power plant?

A quote for a standard installation is issued to all customers before a site inspection is carried out. A standard installation includes:

 

  • Installation of your Sunverge AC coupled SIS 7.7 kWh energy storage system, including a Schneider XW+ 7048 inverter and access to the AGL’s battery monitoring portal.
  • Full installation on suitable flooring. ‘Suitable flooring’ is a concrete base, with a minimum thickness of 75 mm and free from cracks, that can accommodate approximately 270 kg of weight.
  • Conduit and cabling between the battery location and the switchboard, up to 20 metres.
  • Installation of a battery main switch circuit breaker, control circuit (VT) circuit breaker and two Current Transformers in the switchboard. The switchboard must have sufficient space to accommodate these additions.

 

A standard installation also assumes:

 

  • There is suitable flooring. ‘Suitable flooring’ is a concrete base, with a minimum thickness of 75 mm and free from cracks, that can accommodate approximately 270 kg of weight.
  • That your battery will be installed in a non-habitable internal location, or an external location that is not subject to direct sun for lengthy periods, for example between north-west and north-east (unless determined as a suitable location by AGL).
  • That the cable between the street and the switchboard, and the switchboard itself, complies with current electrical and safety standards.
  • No hazardous materials such as asbestos.

 

The site inspection may identify that further work needs to be carried out to make your home suitable for a safe installation. If this is the case, you will be issued with an updated quote to accept in accordance with your terms and conditions.
