Redback Technologies has just launched its latest generation of hybrid inverters - both single and three phase! ZEN Energy Systems, as Redback's New Zealand partner, is incredibly happy to announce that these latest release systems are now available in New Zealand - offering further enhanced capabilities from this market leading all-in-one hybrid solar and energy storage system.
Redback manufactures smart hybrid solar energy systems to suit your home or small business. They combine the smart hybrid inverter, battery enclosure, batteries and integrated wiring to create a sleek all-in-one system. The new product range includes the Smart Hybrid System and the Smart 3 Phase Hybrid System.
The Smart Hybrid System combines a 5 kW hybrid solar inverter and modular battery storage up to 14.2 kWh. The modern and sleek design is ideal for single-phase homes that have two to four bedrooms, a regular size air-conditioning system and regular home appliances. For example a fridge, freezer, washing machine, dryer, TV, computer etc.
The Smart 3 Phase Hybrid System combines a 10 kW hybrid solar inverter and modular battery storage of up to 28.4 kWh. The robust design is ideal for three-phase homes that are generally larger, with around five to six bedrooms, large air-conditioning systems, electric car chargers, spas and pool heaters. It is also very suitable to light commercial installations.
Both systems manage your energy usage needs through the intuitive and advanced software, which continually updates and evolves, ensuring your system is kept up to date with the latest technology.
The Redback Smart Hybrid System includes a Hybrid Inverter, the pre-wired Balance of System and up to two Battery Enclosures (3-Phase only). The highly integrated solar and battery storage solution will fit seamlessly into your garage or outside your home, as there is no need for extra cabling or cabinets.
The Battery Enclosure houses various combinations of Pylontech lithium-ion batteries (4.8 - 14.2 kWh for 1-Phase, 9.6– 28.4 kWh for 3-Phase), allowing flexible options to best fit your needs.
Never be left in the dark again, with the Redback back-up power feature allowing near-instantaneous backup power (10 milliseconds), which targets key appliances when the unexpected occurs.*
* When DC-coupled, backup circuit is connected and solar or battery energy is available. Appliances selected and agreed at or prior to the time of install.
Redback Smart Hybrid Systems feature high power battery charge and discharge rates, with 4.6 kW continuous and 6.9 kW surge capacities for the single phase model, and up to 10 kW continuous and 16.5 kW surge capacities for the three phase model.
Combining both software and hardware, each Redback Smart Hybrid System can be updated remotely with new advancements as they become available, intelligently evolving to ensure you’re always up to date with the latest solar tech.
If the energy in your solar batteries is exhausted during a prolonged grid outage, the Redback Smart Hybrid System will re-start itself with the sun’s energy captured by your solar panels. Once the power needs within your home are met, your solar batteries will recharge so you can keep the lights on when the sun goes down again. This is called Blackstart!

"It’s been great. We have noticed savings from the very start, the wine was nice I won’t lie. Our bills are 40-50% less."
"I was skeptical about the savings at first, we are now saving over 50% on our power bills, summer ones have dropped from $450 to $200 and winter has gone from $660 down to $320. We are happy with how persistent Jake was, the results are great"
“Pretty good I am a country bumkin so pretty good is pretty good, our winter bills have dropped from $400 – $260 & summer from $130 down to $60. I have been recommending ZEN to anyone who asks”
