[QLD] Free Tesla Powerwall 2 with New Homes from Clarendon Homes

132

I'm not one for lengthy posts so let me just summarise what I know

  • Tesla Powerwall 2, 13.2kWh energy storage capacity
  • Provided by Bradford Solar
  • Wording is rather vague but i think a 5kw solar system is included in this
  • Only available for homes from the "Clarendon Collection" range

Coincidentally, Metricon are also having a similar offer but not free:

  • Bradford's Solar ChargePack (Tesla Powerwall 2 Home Battery, SolarEdge Inverter, 270W Solar Panels, Monitoring)
  • Fujitsu Reverse Cycle Ducted Air-Conditioning
  • Single or Double Storey Façade Render
  • Designer Floor Coverings of your choice

Single Storey $1,999*
Double Storey $4,999*

I guess in terms of value, this is hardly any different to the promotions that builders normally have, so feel free to move this to the forums.

    Does this even qualify as a deal when you are consdiering the cost of a new home, this would be what 1% of the price of a new home.

    Sorry but this is included in the price, just about every new home build has a '$17,000 of inclusions'.

    Kind of like posting a deal for free tank of fuel when you buy a new car.

      ya but how many of those inclusions provide you with ~$1000-$1500/year in ongoing savings? But yes you are right, if you crunch the numbers, those inclusions that you're missing out on in lieu of this deal vs the payback period may not make this the best deal. Then again, how do you quantify the payback period if it's free. I don't know, I'm drunk.

    So buy a house, get a free battery…

    This is going to snowball - everyone will get solar + battery when they build a new home….even conservatives…..

      I hope you're right. Happy to let the conservatives eat coal though.

        Well, with solar + wind being cheaper now, they'll have to do something with all that coal they've been digging up

    Most of us should already have ample eneloops to make our own powerwall.

    Wow. 40 years ago I looked at a new house and it came with a free Hills hoist

    Considering the included costs of not only the product, but the labor/install and savings long term, I think it is a great deal. Especially when they are only just trickling into the market.

    It is definitely beneficial to those in the market for building a new home. Comparing inclusions across builders can often be a deciding factor.

    I noticed this deal is not active, it commences on April Fools day…

    For anyone considering building with Clarendon Homes I don't recommend it. I built with Clarendon Homes and they did a terrible job. Holes in walls, light fixtures not properly installed, door handles broken, telephone ports not properly connected, tiles broken, and light switches that should turn on lights but don't.

      I am sure those issues left a bad taste in your mouth being a brand new home, but assuming they were all fixed under your warranty period, in the scheme of things they are not major issues compared to massive cost increases, long build delays, etc.

    I wouldn't consider this to be much of a 'deal'. The previous 'deal' they had before was that the buyer pay '$1' more and they get a choice of free air-conditioning or steel frame. The air-conditioning they provided was a crap (non-inverter) type anyway. My friend signed the contract only to find that they had to pay an extra $4k to get a proper ducted inverter system. I don't consider any deal this company provides to be of good value.
