HYBRID / OFF-GRID SYSTEM
Mount Glorious, Queensland
1 phase residential hybrid / off-grid system
Our client, living out near Mt Glorious, had a previous hybrid / off-grid system that kept failing, therefore required an upgrade. Our client was a big fan of the Australian flow battery company, Redflow and their world's smallest flow battery the ZCell.
The client's request was a system that was still connected to the grid for export but could operate without the grid indefinitely.
USEABLE BATTERY STORAGE
20KWh @ up to 100% DOD
30 x 330W Trina black panels
2 x 5000W Victron Multiplus 2
2 x 85/250 Victron Smart Solar Charge controllers
2 x 10KWh Redflow ZCell zinc bromine flow batteries
The Redflow ZCell battery can only be used with Victron inverters at present – which is not a bad thing, as Victron make some of the world's best inverter / chargers money can buy!
Personally we prefer Selectronic as these are made in Australia and probably the world's best multimode inverters – but to support a quality Australian flow battery, we are happy to use Victron as well.
