Solar Battery Storage – Gold Coast, Brisbane, Logan, Tweed

Battery Storage Overview

Solar Battery Storage connects to your home or business power and is normally charged by a solar power system. Depending on the power tariff, the battery storage can also be charged using lower cost power from the grid, for example, between midnight and 7am.

Battery storage can be used to: 

  • Provide power to your home or business during peak power tariff periods when grid power is very costly
  • Provide power to your home or business at any set times to decrease the power taken from the grid
  • Provide backup power to your home or business during a blackout.  Not all battery storage systems are capable of providing solar battery backup power

There are two types of battery storage systems: 

  1. AC Coupled Solar Battery.  This is a battery system that connects to any home or business.  It comes with its own inverter/charger, so it is separate to the solar power system.  It can therefore be used in cases where there is an existing solar power system.  There are many products in this category, including Tesla Powerwall.
  2. DC Coupled Solar Battery.  There are a few types of DC Coupled battery connections.  The main one is where a solar battery connects to a solar hybrid inverter that has a battery connection as well as connections for the solar power panels.  The solar hybrid inverter can be installed initially and the battery can also be installed initially or in the future.  The DC coupled solar battery option is more efficient than the AC coupled solar battery option.
 
Central Solar Systems installs both types of solar battery storage systems. 
 
Examples of both types of battery storage systems are discussed below in more detail.  We also have other options.  Please contact us to discuss your needs.

AC Coupled Solar Battery Storage System Example 1

SOLARWATT Battery Flex Solar Battery Storage

SOLARWATT Battery Flex battery storage is made in GermanySOLARWATT has

partnered with BMW to develop and manufacture a battery storage system using BMW automotive cells.  SOLARWATT Battery Flex is designed to meet:

  • Highest quality standards
  • Environmentally friendly manufacturing
  • High efficiency

The diagram below shows how the SOLARWATT Battery Flex connects into your existing home or business, particularly if you have an existing solar power system.

SOLARWATT Battery Flex is modular.  The size can start from 4.8kWh and increase to 57.6 kWh in increments of 2.4kWh, so it’s suitable as a house battery and a commercial battery.

Fronius Hybrid Inverter with Battery Storage

The Fronius GEN24 Plus is a solar hybrid inverter that is made in Austria.  Fronius has long been considered the best of the best solar power inverters on the market.  Being a solar hybrid inverter, the GEN24 Plus can
 
  1. connect just battery storage
  2. connect battery storage and additional solar power panels.
 
The Fronius GEN24 Plus is also a reliable way to provide single phase and three phase battery backup if there is a power blackout.  Most other solutions, including Tesla Powerwall can only provide single phase battery backup.
 

BYD Battery Box Premium HVS/HVM.  Founded in 1995 in China, BYD started out as a battery maker and entered the automobile industry in 2003.  

BYD battery systems are modular.  The HVM series can start at 8.3kWh and be expanded over time up to 66.2kWh, so it’s suitable as a home battery and a commercial battery.

LG Chem.  The new LG Chem batteries will also connect with the Fronius GEN24 Plus.  The new LG Chem batteries are expected to be released in late 2021.
