A family-of-four are spending just 46 cents per day on electricity after becoming the first household in the world to try a new technology


A family-of-four are spending just 46 cents per day on electricity after becoming the first household in the world to try a new technology.

Nick and Danielle Pfitzner installed a Tesla Powerwall battery storage system in their four-bedroom Kellyville home, in Sydney’s north-west, in January 2016. 

Mr Pfitzner said they’d managed to cut their power bills by $2,116 per year since making the change.

‘The money we save on electricity, we actually use for other things,’ Nick Pfitzner said, according to ‘We went on a road trip to country NSW and then up to Kosciuszko, and then down to the beach over the course of a week. So if you’re saving about $2000 a year, give or take, that’s fuel and accommodation for a family of four.’
