Home Battery Storage in Perth
Perth Solar Batteries are the number one inquiry we get from old and new customers alike. Reliable battery technology is here, but unlike our Solar systems that have very short payback periods and last a lifetime, batteries are higher priced and more for ‘first movers’.
Home Battery Storage for Single Phase Inverters
GCL has easily the most refined battery products on the market. Whilst Tesla have been making press releases, GCL have been making batteries.
Here’s GCL’s battery data sheet below:
- 5.6 Kilowatt Hours Storage
- TUV certification
- Able to be linked together for extra storage
- 10 year plus lifespan
- Small size and relatively lightweight
- Fully compatible with Goodwe retro fit BP series DC energy storage inverter or Hybrid inverter
- Passive non-fan cooling for silent operation
- Indoor or outdoor mounting
- 7 year warranty
These are a very sleek battery and LG certainly knows their electronics. LG batteries come in a variety of sizes. They have a sleek design and are easy to wall mount. They are suitable for indoor and outdoor mounting
Home Battery Storage for 3 Phase Inverters
Enphase is offering the best system at the moment, selling 1.2 kWh ‘AC’ batteries that can be joined together and put with any inverter. For more information on their batteries, please visit this link.
DC or AC Batteries?
Well for starters, there’s no such thing as an AC battery. If you work out how to store AC power, please give us a call before you tell anybody else. But the term is widely used and perfectly acceptable and our prediction is that ‘AC batteries’ are probably the way of the future.
You can put your batteries on the DC side of the inverter between the panels and the inverter, or on the AC side of the Inverter and your electrical loads. The batteries that go on the AC side like the superb Enphase system are in fact DC batteries with a small inverter in each one. Or you can cut out the extra conversions and just go DC like GCL and LG have done. The problem with the DC batteries is that you have to coordinate with the inverter manufacturers to get everything managed properly. Tesla tried this and came to a cropper recently, dropping their DC batteries before they were even released. Having said that, no such problem from GCL in coordination with Goodwe. Fronius make batteries and inverters but seem to be going for the billionaire market.
Please do not believe the hype and buy one of these until you are ready to put your batteries in. Most new battery systems including Tesla will come with a built in an inverter for handling the battery management and it will be far superior to buying something now.
