Battery storage on display at Ecoliv, Wonthaggi

18 June 2017

The Gippsland Solar team have been hard at work across Gippsland, installing dozens of battery storage systems on solar powered homes.

We recently installed a system on the Ecoliv / Beaumont Concepts showroom in Wonthaggi. Ecoliv are a long-term partner of ours, their architecturally designed modular homes offer inspiring, functional living spaces with a minimum 7-star energy rating. Ecoliv prefabricated modular homes provide a compact yet functional solution, flexible enough to suit a range of lifestyles and locations.

We wanted to solidify the relationship by installing a (fully functional) demo system to show their clients. In the images attached, you can see how much power the solar array is producing, how much they are using in the showroom, and how much they are importing/exporting to the grid.

Gippsland Solar have a range of battery storage options available, including 12 of the new Tesla Powerwall 2 which arrive in a few weeks! We can talk you through the differences between the products, focusing on your situation.

We’d like to remind you that battery storage still doesn’t make financial sense in every situation, so make sure you receive the right advice.


Newhaven College leads the way

Newhaven College leads the way

Newhaven College is an independent, ecumenical and co-educational school founded in 1980 and now caters for over 900 students from Prep through to Year 12. While the students enjoyed their recent school holidays, the Gippsland Solar projects team sprang into action!

This 240kW (740 panel) solar array was the most complex project we have worked on, and involved some of the most advanced wireless technology on the market. Our project managers, electricians and installers managed to deliver this project during the school holidays, and to the highest standard.

Feedback from the school board has been overwhelmingly positive – wait until they see their electricity bills! We can’t wait to educate the students on the benefits of this system.
