    You can't make a generalising statement like that. It depends completely on several factors. Like how much you are saving and more importantly, how much the battery costs installed (after subsidy)

    As I said I have been told that from companies selling them, not selling it as a money spinner and screwing people like I have seen from alot of quotes. A competent installer will tell you the real facts.

    Do the maths a typical battery commercially speaking costs €2k work out the pay back on it. I have a PV system, diverter and no battery. Im all for batteries and self sufficiency if possible and are viable and worth it id buy one but as I said salesmen say buy them, other people say don't.

    If you make your own of course payback is worth it, we are in a public forum not many will make their own.

    So by the time I got around to starting to seriously consider this COVID hit and everything ground to a halt.

    Asked for a quote, from local company today and will move from here.
    Roof is about 17m long, 2.5 high, with a facing of 157deg SE.

    Will see what they come back with.
