Powervault is very simple to use, install and understand; you can find out why here


Powervault has been designed to be very easy to install in homes around the UK. Depending on the location, Powervault will typically take a qualified electrician less than 2 hours to install. When the Powervault is installed, it will be fixed to the wall for stability, as well as set on the floor. Provided there is enough stability in the wall, smaller capacity units can be wall-mounted.
