We understand that circumstances may change, and we respect your decision to terminate the agreement. Here are the options and associated costs for terminating the NRN Battery agreement. If you choose to terminate the NRN Battery agreement, we provide two options to meet your needs:

  • Purchase the System: You have the option to purchase the system at any time, based on a standard depreciation schedule. For more details on the purchase costs, please refer to the FAQ: Can I buy the system at any time, and does it get cheaper? There is no Early Termination Fee when purchasing the system.
  • Battery Removal: If you want to remove the NRN Battery, contact us at NRN to let us know. After you’ve paid the system’s total cost, we’ll take care of everything for you. We’ll arrange for a Solar Retailer to remove and deliver the battery to an approved site. Your obligations under this contract will end once the battery is removed and you’ve paid in full. After that, this contract will be terminated.

We value transparency and encourage you to refer to our comprehensive Terms and Conditions for more detailed information about the termination process and associated costs. Should you have any questions or need further clarification, our team is ready to assist you.

Your battery is back-up capable, meaning it can provide power to your home during a blackout*. There may be additional costs associated with adding this feature to your home, as every home’s electricity switchboard is different. While for most homes this cost is less than $400, we recommend speaking to your NRN Installation Partner for exact pricing.

*Back-up power is limited to 4.6kW of power. Your battery cannot supply your home power if it is empty. NRN provides no guarantee for your battery having capacity ahead of a black-out event.
