FIMER's storage product available on SA Home Battery Scheme

FIMER’s REACT 2 residential energy storage solution has been included on the South Australian (SA) Home Battery Scheme. The SA Home Battery Scheme gives all grid-connected South Australians access to their state government subsidies and low-interest loans to help pay for a home battery system and new solar if required.

The subsidy is calculated on the kilowatt-hour capacity of the battery purchased. With a REACT 2, depending on how many battery modules are installed, home owners could save up to $4000 on a home battery installation.

“It is great to have the REACT 2 on the South Australian home battery scheme,” said Jason Venning, Country Manager, FIMER Australia. “Our solution provides home owners with the choice of a high-quality hybrid inverter and modular battery system from one manufacturer with a 10-year warranty and a battery performance guarantee.”

The storage solution includes a hybrid single-phase inverter available in power ratings of 3.6 and 5.0 kW. It is claimed to have one of the industry’s highest energy efficiency rates, providing up to 10% more energy than lower voltage battery systems. The system is flexible and can be expanded from 4 to 12 kWh, depending on the number of batteries used, and can achieve up to 90% energy self-reliance. Available with both AC and DC side connection, the solution is suitable for both new and retrofit applications.

Alongside the SA Home Battery Scheme, the REACT 2 is also available under the Victorian battery scheme.
