Redback’s Smart Battery System is the perfect upgrade to your existing solar energy system.  This latest release 'AC couples' to your existing system and enables you to maximise your home’s self-sufficiency by utilising more of your own, self-generated energy - storing the excess solar power generated during the day in the 7.2kWh battery, for use when the sun is no longer shining.

In addition to powering through the night, you can keep your lights on in a power outage with the Smart Battery system’s Backup Power and Built-in UPS (uninterrupted power supply) features, providing a greater level of security and independence.

Become more self-sufficient and self-reliant with a Redback Smart Battery system - simply add it to your existing solar energy system!  It’s your energy, why not make the most of it?
