RedEarth reaches battery system milestone
RedEarth Energy Storage has earned Clean Energy Council (CEC) approval for its residential SunRise Home Battery system — an Australian outdoor-rated, plug-and-play battery system that stores excess solar electricity for use after sundown.
The Australian-made and -owned product features on the CEC’s approved list of inverters in the all-in-one battery energy storage system (BESS) category. The CEC’s Battery Assurance Program lists energy storage devices that meet industry best practice requirements. This means that the SunRise system will be eligible for all government grant and subsidy programs.
RedEarth co-founder and CTO Chris Winter said, “To be the first Australian-owned manufacturer with a residential battery system on the approved CEC list is a huge milestone for RedEarth.
“With Australians embracing the benefits of solar energy storage more than ever before, we are proud to be providing consumers with a residential battery solution that is 100% manufactured by Australians in Australia,” Winter said.
Focusing on long-term reliability, the system has a storage capacity of 3.3 to 26 kWh to support the average Australian home’s daily consumption of power. The system can be monitored remotely to ensure optimal operation and additional batteries can be added as needed.
In the next four years, RedEarth is expected to manufacture more than $70 million worth of battery systems. The company is investing in additional research and development to ensure its products remain at the forefront of Australia’s growing sustainable energy needs.
