Energy Storage

Energy storage is the latest buzz and for good reason; our state's energy network is a mess (and it's not going to be fixed overnight).

Adding energy storage to an existing solar system or building an entire system from scratch makes excellent economic sense.
For most home owners solar alone reduces power bills slightly, with the bulk of energy generated heading out to the grid for a meager return.
Having a storage system means some or all of the surplus solar energy gets stored on site for you to use later, further reducing energy bills.

Standard energy storage systems do have one problem though; when the grid goes down both your solar system and batteries need to turn off, meaning you are left in the dark along with everyone else.

Back-up systems are specifically designed to provide power to critical loads (lights, fridge etc) during those power outages. Power is supplied direct from your solar or batteries or a bit of both, depending on conditions.

Arguably the dominating battery system on the market (and the one that every competitor strives to compete against) is the Tesla Powerwall 2.
     Huge 14kW storage capacity (13.5kWh usable), with m
assive 7kW peak power output
     Built in bi-directional grid inverter (AC model)
     Worlds only liquid cooled battery system providing superior performance, efficiency and safety
     Back-up mode allows full operation as an off-grid system including solar and generator control
     Made in USA
     AND the BEST value for money storage system available in Australia!
