Re: Realistic expectations for my house batteries
I have had dealings with Carl at electric car parts company. He's knowledgeable, but a one man show, so the quality of customer service depends on his personality alone, just let that be all I say.
You will not get a free extra 10% from CALB best I've seen is 4% so far.
The lead equivalent to 360Ah LFP is 225, in Deka currently under $215 including my cost to pickup, just down the road.
Seven times that is under $1500.
Factor in the extra delivery charges and the BMS as well.
Of course you can find more expensive lead batteries, but that's just obfuscation, the Deka FLA will last just as long as Lifeline, and who orders those on Amazon anyway?
And then all the other infrastructure conversion expenses. . .
