Solar Storage Batteries

Solar battery storage and household energy self-reliance

Lindsay Parker

As the new government looks at ways to lower energy costs for consumers across Australia, a self-reliant household with good solar PV production and solar battery storage will greatly assist their aims.

The Enphase Energy System provides an all-in-one solution with its IQ Microinverters and IQ Batteries that allows homeowners to use solar battery storage to store their energy for later use and avoid relying on expensive energy from the grid. Now, IQ Batteries can also be installed with both single-phase and three-phase third-party solar energy inverters, enabling homeowners in Australia to upgrade their existing home solar systems with a reliable residential solar battery storage solution that reduces costs while providing increased self-reliance.

Australian solar battery storage market

The Australian solar battery storage market is growing rapidly,” said Lindsay Parker, CEO for GoSolar Newcastle, an Enphase Platinum level installer based in Newcastle. “This development will enable more homeowners to connect their solar systems to an Enphase product and experience the reliability of the IQ Batteries.”

We are excited that Enphase engineers have approved the combination of the IQ Battery with third-party inverters,” said Mark Parker, sales manager for GoSolar Newcastle, a leading solar and battery company based in the hunter region. “This is an important step in becoming a leading solar and battery brand locality.”

Enphase delivers a safer solar-plus-battery solution that does not expose installers or homeowners to high-voltage DC. Enphase IQ Batteries feature Lithium Iron Phosphate (LFP) battery chemistry, which provides a long cycle life and safer operation through excellent thermal stability. The Enphase IQ Batteries accommodate over-the-air software upgrades and come with a 10-year limited warranty. When used with third-party solar inverters, the Enphase® App will display essential data featuring the solar production for the system.

This will enable us to easily retrofit the IQ Battery to any installed solar system without a storage connection already.

Enphase Energy, a global energy technology company based in Fremont, California, is the world’s leading supplier of microinverter-based solar and battery systems that enable people to harness the sun to make, use, save, and sell their own power—and control it all with a smart mobile app. The company revolutionized the solar industry with its microinverter-based technology and builds all-in-one solar, battery, and software solutions. Enphase has shipped more than 45 million microinverters, and over 2.0 million Enphase-based systems have been deployed in more than 135 countries. For more information
