AGL Energy Limited (AGL) today announced it is expanding its Power Advantage range of energy storage devices with two larger size batteries for residential customers. The new offering suits a wider range of households and home energy uses, giving residential customers more control in managing how they generate and use their energy, helping to reduce energy bills.
Complementing the existing medium-sized 7.2 kWh battery, AGL is today introducing two new batteries with storage capacities of 11.6 kWh and 19.4 kWh catering for bigger solar PV (photovoltaic) systems and larger household consumptions.
Executive General Manager New Energy, Marc England said: “We were the first major energy retailer to launch a battery in the Australian market and we continue to innovate. We now offer the widest range of energy storage solutions to meet individual household needs.
“Energy storage gives our customers more control and flexibility to decide the optimal time to use the stored energy, which can help reduce their energy costs.
“There has been strong consumer interest in energy storage. AGL has spent the last few months learning from the more than 4,000 customers who signed up to our Power Advantage Club. These new storage products are the result of that learning and we will continue to innovate our offers to meet further customer needs. The new additions to the range are suitable for larger family homes and can, for example, be located either inside or outdoors, used as back-up, and power a whole house to maximise energy savings,” said Mr England.
The two new batteries are manufactured by Sunverge, a San-Francisco-based leader in solar and battery storage solutions. Both batteries have been through AGL’s rigorous testing standards to ensure they are suited to Australian conditions and are backed by a 10 year warranty. The new batteries also include an inverter with installation included.
AGL’s Power Advantage range now covers solar PV systems from 3 kW to more than 5 kW in size and enables a solution for most types of households and energy usage. AGL has plans to continually develop its suite of products and offers a range of payment methods to cater to a wide range of home and business sizes and types.
