First Redflow Batteries For Solar Homes Now Due In November
Redflow – the Adelaide-based outfit which has been developing a battery system for storage of solar-generated energy in homes with solar panels – in possible competition with Tesla – now says it will be November before it can begin a full-scale rollout.
Earlier this year it was predicting a mid-year launch for the ZCell systems.
According to Redflow executive chairman Simon Hackett, the first shipment of ZCell-ready batteries, which are being made to Redflow’s specifications in the USA, is expected to arrive in Australia in late August.
The award of a contract for manufacturing the ZCell outdoor battery enclosure is “in progress”, with initial deliveries expected by end August or early September, he said in an announcement to the ASX.
“An in-field Z Cell evaluation operating in various residential environments will take place as part of a ‘soft’ product roll-out from September for 60 days (September and October) prior to a full rollout from November,” Hackett said.
