WA’s Jindong Treeton Farm goes off-grid with Redflow and TIEC

West Australian Redflow partner TIEC Electrical is finalising deployment of its latest agricultural Redflow flow battery energy storage system at Jindong Treeton Farm, 250km south of Perth.

Located next to the Margaret River Wine Region, Jindong Treeton Farm selected TIEC to install the 60 kilowatt-hour (kWh) Redflow flow battery-based energy storage system in order to go off-grid. 

When the property owners recognised they needed three-phase power to meet their expansion plans and machinery power requirements, they found their local southwest power utility was not a viable solution financially, so asked TIEC Electrical to design a system to meet their budget and power needs.

The battery room at Jindong Treetop Farm now contains six 10 kWh Redflow flow batteries, with room for two more to meet future expansion plans. Four Victron MPPT Controllers on the back wall are ready to harvest energy from the 24.5 kilowatt (kW) rooftop solar array and wind turbine. Three 10kVA Victron Quattro Inverter/Chargers are wired up to distribute the three-phase power to the farm and homestead.

TIEC Electrical will complete final testing and commissioning of the system in coming weeks. Learn more about TIEC Electrical at http://www.tiec.com.au
