Our loadshedding problems may have gone for now, but for those still looking for a home battery that can store electricity and power your home when the grid is down will be interested to know how much it’s gonna cost. When it was revealed last year the price for the cheapest model was set at $3000 which at straight currency conversion rates would set you back around R47 000. Well the actual price point for South Africa has been announced and you can expect to pay around R116 000…excluding installation.
