Australian battery company Redflow has appointed its first approved resellers for its new ZCell energy storage solution with the companies to provide specialist local knowledge and national coverage.
The Adelaide-based company announced the first ZCell installers are Geographe Electrical Communications (WA), Off-Grid Energy Australia (SA, VIC, ACT, NSW, TAS and southeast QLD.), SolarQuip (VIC), Standard Solar (national), Suntrix (SA, VIC, NSW, QLD), The Solar Depot (SA, NSW) and WES Group (QLD, NT, WA).
Redflow chief executive Simon Hackett said each company, which already had the in-house expertise and experience necessary to install energy storage systems, was now approved to install ZCell, and he expects to announce more installers in coming weeks.
Redflow launched its ZCell home energy storage system in March.
The system consists of a 10-kilowatt hour (kWh) flow battery that can “timeshift” solar power from day to night, store off-peak power for peak demand periods and support off-grid systems. Installers determine the price charged for an energy storage system that uses a ZCell battery from Redflow.
James Graham, the chief technology officer of Melbourne-based Standard Solar, one of the newly appointed resellers,says, “We’ve sold and installed all types of battery systems, including lead acid and lithium”.
“Quite simply, Redflow has the best battery technology on the market at the moment. It’s the product I want to use myself.”
