Q.HOME is QCells home solar battery. It is a modular lithium-ion solar battery integrated with a 5kW solar inverter. The battery is scalable from 6.86kWh up to a maximum of 3 units which would give you a storage capacity of 20.5kWh.
The advantage of a scalable solar battery is that you can start small and relatively inexpensively and grow as required. The integrated solar inverter means you can just add solar panels and you have a complete solar and battery system.
It has a 15-year warranty and a back-up system which includes an Automatic Transfer Switch to transfer your power supply from the electricity grid to the battery in case of a black-out.
Q.HOME is manufactured by QCELLS the award winning and well-established solar panel manufacturer. They guarantee Q.HOME will deliver more megawatt hours of power than major competing battery brands within the Australian market over the industry standard 10-year warranty.
The Q.HOME system, on average, is expected to generate 355 kWh more energy than the industry standard – which equates to a surplus of 35.5 kWh per year – the equivalent of running five 10W LED lights for 2 hours longer every day for 10 years
Q CELLS AI algorithm incorporates weather information with real-time data from your solar panels and solar battery system to maximise energy usage and generation.
Tesla Powerwall has a capacity of 13kWh making it one of the larger domestic solar batteries currently available. It is AC coupled and can be added to an existing solar system without the need for a separate solar battery inverter.VIEW RANGE
The SolarEdge Home Battery 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.VIEW RANGE
There are a range of batteries which can be added to existing solar power systems and for new solar installations there are hybrids with a built-in solar inverter. Single batteries come in a choice of 5kWh, 10kWh & 13.3kWh with the option to add multiple batteries to reach 80kWh on their single phase and 51kWh on three phase.VIEW RANGE
The AC coupled 10kWh sonnenBatterieEVO can be installed outdoors. Like Powerwall it can be easily added to an existing solar power system. The DC coupled sonnenBattterie Hybrid 9.53 is impressively energy efficient at 98% and expandable from 2.5kWh to 15kWh.VIEW RANGE
