Solarpro installed some of the earliest lithium ion batteries when they hit Austalia’s shores back in 2015. Since then we have developed an extensive range to suit our customers’ different needs and budgets. These can be viewed in our Allambie Heights Showroom.
The range includes Tesla Powerwall, LG Prime, Redback, Australian made Sonnen and the lastest to hit the market, a battery from SolarEdge.
Tesla Powerwall 2 has a capacity of 13.5kWh making it one of the larger AC coupled domestic solar batteries currently available. Being AC coupled it can be added to an existing solar system without the need for a separate solar battery inverter.
The SolarEdge Energy Bank is a DC coupled 10kWh solar storage battery. While SolarEdge is best known for their optimised inverters, they have a lot of experience with solar batteries. They were the original battery management system for Tesla. They have close to 100,000 residential systems with batteries from Tesla and LG on them worldwide and they own Kokam, an industry leader in battery chemistry and utility storage.
The 10kwh SolarEdge battery is scheduled to arrive in Australia in December 2021.
LG RESU Prime solar batteries are DC coupled making them energy efficient. They require a separate inverter so cannot be added to an existing system. It is compatible with the SolarEdge Energy Hub inverter for monitoring and smart use of your power. The range includes a 10kW and 16kWh battery.
The Redback Smart Batteries are all about flexibility and different financial options including starting small and growing with their modular design hybrid unit. They have Smart Battery Systems and Hybrid systems with storage capacities ranging from 4.8kWh up to 28.4kWh.
