PowerBanx X1 Home Solar Battery Storage System 2.4 kWh Installed
This is a large battery system for your home, similar to the Tesla Powerwall, designed by Fuel Included Limited. You charge it from your solar panels while you are out so you get free electricity in the evening when you need it. If you are on the government feed-in tariff (FIT) scheme you are allowed to divert your solar into the PowerBanx and still get paid the FIT tariff and the export tariff. For when you don't have enough free solar e. In the winter you can top it up with Economy 7 electricity at night to give you half-price electricity during the day.
It is an intelligent system and can be programmed to automatically swap from mostly solar + some Eco7 in the summer to mostly Eco7 + some solar in the winter, for example. This particular system, the X1, comes with one battery but can be expanded later (just by adding batteries) to a total of 8 batteries (19.2kWh).1 x 2.4kWh batteries (2.4kWh total capacity, 1.92kWh usable capacity at 80% depth of discharge/DOD). These are advanced Lithium-Ion (Lithium Iron Phosphate) batteries - a particularly safe battery chemistry. They include an advanced, in-built battery management system. Each battery has an output power of 1kVA approx. 1kW so the X1 system has a maximum output of about 1kW.
