Battery Storage

New battery storage technology has become an industry game-changer. In the past, any excess electricity generated by a PV Solar system during the day was fed back into the power Grid with no option to use it.

The benefits of storing excess energy produced in the daytime, to use later, gives tremendous power back to users.

The Lithium-ion battery storage systems that have now arrived in Australia, are giving customers unprecedented independence.

Customers can basically set up their own power stations and take a significant step away from Australia’s reliance on fossil fuels.

 Benefits of our battery storage systems include:

  • Self-sufficiency potential
  • Access to power during Grid failures: protecting against the impact of bush fires, strong winds and other power outages
  • Web and mobile monitoring for remote maintenance
  • More environmentally responsible.

Country Solar has direct distribution agreements with Samsung and, through a SolarEdge agreement,Tesla; the two largest and most exciting Lithium-ion battery manufacturers in the world.

Recently, the Tesla car beat a V8 Supercar on the quarter mile and Samsung batteries are used in Porsche, Audi and BMW electric vehicles. Powerful results!!

A solid investment for the future Advances in storage technology are increasing the efficiency and cost effectiveness of solar-generated electricity storage batteries. This will allow increasing numbers of PV Solar owners to become completely self-sufficient.

A well designed solar & storage system ensures your electricity price will be at half the current rate, for the next fifteen years and that’s without factoring in any electricity price increases. Another huge advantage is that you can budget for the same power costs, without worrying about what the next bill will bring.

About Lithium-Ion [Li-ion] Batteries   The lithium-ion cells used in Samsung’s Energy Storage Systems were developed to meet the demanding requirements of some of the worlds leading automotive brands’ electric vehicles.

An ESS is therefore able to offer a long life span [a possible 16 years], safety and the highest dynamic charge acceptance [its ability to take in and store large amounts of instantaneous energy], which delivers a low total cost of ownership and reliability.

Lithium ion batteries are maintenance free, more heat tolerant and much safer and easier to manage than traditional batteries used for this application. They can be fully discharged and recharged again 6000 times.

01 NovFive good reasons to add Solar + Battery Storage to your home

1. Security – insure yourself against predicted electricity price rises by generating and using your own electricity.  Electricity prices have been increasing well above CPI for several years and this is unlikely to change in the foreseeable future.
