Queensland leads the charge
One such developer in Queensland (where already nearly a third of homes already have rooftop solar) is Tangara Constructions which offers a system to its clients. Designed by Solar Hybrid the installation is centred around an LG Chem RESU battery with rooftop solar panels from its sister company LG Electronics.
Increasingly seen as a ‘must-have’ for homebuilders in Brisbane the system offers peace-of-mind, energy security, insulation from bill shock and high-tech monitoring and optimisation. With 20 panels, the solar panel array size is 6.5kW supported by a 9.8kWh LG Chem RESU10H battery. It is estimated that this will produce 9.4MWh of electricity a year, reducing not just the householder’s bills but also their carbon output by 7.7 tonnes a year.
According to Gino Fiocco, managing director of Solar Hybrids, “We chose LG Chem because of its reputation for quality, safety, reliability and the peace of mind offered to the home owner thanks to industry-leading warranties. In this installation in particular, the LG Chem
battery’s extremely compact and sleek design made it a perfect counterpart to this opulent,cutting-edge home.”
Jamie Allen,General Manager of LG Chem Australia said, “Australia is now in a renewable energy revolution, largely driven by forward thinking homeowners. Whether incorporating home batteries into a new solar system, or adding them to an existing solar system, Australian families are now taking advantage of the systems electricity cost savings, environmental benefits and peace-of-mind having their own electricity independence.”
