Qld family goes off grid with solar and 60kWh Redflow ZCell battery bank

A Queensland family has installed the largest residential Reflow ZCell battery system in Australia, at 60kWh, as part of an off-grid solar and storage system will allow them to avoid the cost of connecting to the network, and of hefty future power bills.  The storage system, installed by Off-Grid Energy, comprises six of the Brisbane battery maker’s 10kWh zinc-bromine flow batteries (pictured below), and a nearly 19kW (72 panel) solar PV array, that is installed on the roof of a nearby shed.

Queensland home sets Redflow residential record

A Queensland family has chosen ZCell batteries to guarantee that their new home has electricity without any power bills in the largest Australian residential energy storage system to date for Redflow.  The Bates family’s six-battery, 60 kilowatt-hour (kWh) system ensures complete off-grid operation for their recently built home on a cattle and grain property, about 2.7 kilometres from mains power.

When Scott and Breeann Bates built their new house near Wallumbilla, they chose a ZCell-based energy storage system to give them uninterrupted power, grid-independence and no power bills rather than pay many thousands of dollars per kilometre to connect mains power to the house. ZCell batteries are produced by Redflow Limited, the ASX-listed company that has developed the world’s smallest zinc-bromine flow battery. The system was installed by Off-Grid Energy Australia.

Breeann Bates said the ZCell-based system was living up to their expectations. “We are really impressed with it,” she said. “Scott wanted to be able to do everything on batteries that we could do on mains power and not compromise our way of living. It’s cold in the morning, so we’re running the heaters to keep our three kids warm, and we keep them on until the day warms up. Continue reading “Queensland home sets Redflow residential record”
