Powering Possibilities with Redback Technologies
3 min read
Endeavour Foundation is excited to once again be partnering with Redback Technologies and Open Electrical to include a Solar and Battery Storage system on our most recent prize home on the Sunshine Coast.
Redback Technologies is a Brisbane based clean tech company with a passion for creating a cleaner tomorrow for Australia’s future generations by helping Australian households affordably generate their own renewable energy today.
There are a number of benefits to taking advantage of solar power. Adding solar to your home will allow you to generate your own free, clean electricity, saving you money, or even eliminating your power bills. Plus, it may also be possible to sell any excess power you generate back to the grid for credit on your bill.
Solar power also helps to make your home or small business more self-sufficient. The more self-produced power you generate, the less dependent you will be on energy retailers, and the prices they set. Plus, grid interruptions such as blackouts by adding a battery to compliment your solar provided the backup circuit is connected and there is battery energy available.
Solar power doesn’t only have the advantage of saving you money, there are also a number of benefits for our planet. Using the sun to generate power means less harmful emissions from burning fossil fuels, which in turn helps to fight against climate change. Solar energy also uses far less water, one of our most precious natural resources, than burning fossil fuels.
Redback Technologies offers a solution for every home, whether you are looking for a solar system only, a solar and battery system, or a battery to add to your existing solar system. Their solar and battery solutions are designed in Australia and tested to endure the harshest Australian weather conditions, come with an Australian-backed 10-year warranty, and offer local Brisbane-based customer support.
How Does a Solar System Work?
A solar system works by capturing the sun’s rays through solar panels placed on your rooftop. A solar inverter then converts that sunlight into useable electricity for your home. You can use this energy to power your household appliances when the sun is shining. It may then be possible to sell any excess energy produced by your system back to the energy grid for a credit on your bill.
How Does a Solar System with Battery Storage Work?
Similar to a solar only set up, a solar and battery storage system works by capturing the sun’s rays through rooftop solar panels and converting that sunlight into useable electricity. However, unlike a solar-only set up, with battery storage the energy you don’t use during the day gets stored in your batteries for later use when the sun isn’t shining. Another benefit to solar and battery storage is that you can use the energy stored in your batteries to power your essential appliances in the event of a power outage, provided the backup circuit has been connected and there is battery energy available.
Over 3 million Australian homeowners have already made the switch to renewable energy by installing rooftop solar power. Becoming more energy self-sufficient is not only good for your wallet, but it is also good for the planet, and you can sleep well knowing you are actively helping to cut down on carbon emissions when you choose to install solar power. Adding battery storage to compliment your solar system helps to maximise the use of your own, self-generated power within your household or small business and can further protect you or your business in the event of a power outage.
