Lithium batteries for energy storage
EV Works is the Australian distributor for Winston cells and batteries.
We now stock larger format cells up to 1000Ah for solar energy storage for industrial, domestic and outdoor adventure use.
Battery packs can be made up to any required voltage and housed in steel boxes for safety.
A battery management system is necessary for any pack above 12 volts and can be supplied and fitted for your convenience.
Energy storage using lithium batteries is fast becoming the preferred option over grid storage for solar energy. This is primarily due to the reduced feed in tariff paid by energy supply companies.
Lithium batteries are actually cheaper than the equivalent in lead acid batteries. This is due to the fact that lead acid packs need to be oversized by as much as 3 fold and typically two fold to obtain a respectable cycle life.
Energy collected by your solar panels can be stored for use at any time of day or night.
A change over switch can be easily installed by a licenced electrician to allow easy switching between grid and solar. The grid can then be used as back up for your solar energy system should it be needed.
The benefits of using solar energy are well known. The pay back period for batteries can vary between 3 to 5 years.
Feel free to call and discuss any time.
New for 2015
Due to increasing demand for Winston batteries in off grid energy storage EV Works will be carrying a line of inverters. We have been testing a number of products over the last 12 months and found the Sandi inverters to preform flawlessly in both commercial and domestic environments so will be stocking the 10kw units starting from $4000 in future and can supply other sizes to customer requirements. You can find more details here.
Cheaper than doing a conversion yourself you can have a late model vehicle already professionally converted to electric drive.
We are selling one of the WA Electric Vehicle Trial vehicles. This is a professional conversion undertaken by EV Works three years ago on 2010/2011 (brand new at the time) Ford Focus sedan. The vehicle was built using high quality components such as a Netgain motor and 23Kwh Lithium Iron Phosphate battery pack.
ABS, airbags and all safety features retained
Seats 5 adults and full sized boot
Better performance than original 2L engine
Dual mode charger, recharge in 4.5hours on charge station or 3phase and still plug into any 10A power point to charge overnight.
