Tesla's 10kw options is about USD3500 (ex sales tax) - add exchange rate/import duties etc on top of it, you will also sit with a comparable cost of about 90-100K (not factoring in local markups etc).Seems very expensive compared to Tesla. I'm not sure that stating their product is more suited to SA as Tesla's two product options are different. The 10kw version is meant for backup usage and 7kw for daily cycle applications. Good to have competition though.
No the Tesla models don't. Seems reasonably priced against the Tesla if they have the same kind of guarantees.It seems the price does not include the inverter, and the Tesla models do?
On the gaurantee, which is similar/better than the Powerwall offering.The units come with a 10-year guarantee for daily cycling, and Freedom Won offers a “second life option” by exchanging the cells for new ones, at a price.
Under this second life option, cells will be replaced using the the prevailing battery technology at the time.
Depends if you just want a UPS to deal with occasional Loadshedding or you want to go off-grid.Or you could just buy 4 good old fashioned 100AH deep cycles for R8k and replace them every few years... would still be cheaper than these solutions.
