Sound engineer Adrian Shand and his partner live in an old central Victorian stone cottage that is completely off the grid. Using two ZCell zinc-bromine flow batteries, powered by 21 PV solar panels, the Redflow-based energy storage system allows the couple to maintain a “city lifestyle” in the country, without “calorie counting” their energy use. The ZCells, which store a total of 20 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of energy, can charge fully in just four hours on a sunny day. ZCells also deliver consistently clean power that does not interfere with Adrian’s musical equipment.
