We are incredibly happy to introduce you to our next generation energy storage system Q.HOME CORE, the first ESS to provide a 15 year product warranty to the Australian market, providing a significant upgrade to our brand’s total solar solution for solar buyers.
But let’s take a step back – what are the advantages of having an energy storage system?
An energy storage system will allow you access to electricity when you need it most, for example at night or during outages. It enables rooftop solar PV owners to make the most of the solar energy that you generate yourself.
What is new about Q.HOME CORE?
Q.HOME CORE, the third generation ESS from Qcells, integrates a solar inverter with a modular battery system developed by fellow South Korean manufacturing giant Samsung SDI. The modular system allows additional batteries to be added when required.
The Q.VOLT inverter is equipped with 5.0kW capacity and includes hybrid or AC-coupled options and Wi-Fi or LAN connectivity.
The Q.SAVE battery carries a safe and reliable Samsung SDI Li-ion battery cell with storage capacity of 6.86kWh. This scalable battery can be paired with additional units for a maximum 20.5kWh capacity (three Q.SAVE batteries in total).
Q.HOME CORE is presented in a metallic silver casing with a sleek uniform silhouette, and flexible installation options for both wall-mounting and bracket system for floor-mounting.
Q.HOME CORE also includes proprietary production and consumption monitoring with the Q.OMMAND HOME app, allowing solar owners access to data and the opportunity to optimise the use of your system. The energy monitoring system tracks the PV module’s energy generation and consumption while providing the opportunity to maximise the use of that energy by incorporating real-time weather information.
The software suite also includes Q.COMMAND PRO and Q.OMMAND GO, specifically developed for installers to allow fast and easy O&M services and installation commissioning, respectively.
Q.HOME CORE is launching internationally first in Australia and Europe, and is scheduled for release to the general public in Australia in March 2022.
This addition to the Qcells total solar solution allows homeowners the peace of mind of an outstanding battery storage product backed by our Fortune 500 parent company Hanwha Solutions, and the aesthetics that Australians are looking for to showcase their commitment to renewable energy in their own home. We’ve had a fantastic response from our QPartner solar retailer and installer partners who like the Q.HOME CORE for its modularity and ease of installation, but love it for its good looks. It makes it incredibly easy for solar buyers to be able to select a whole solar system from one brand, with one point of contact for support, and the long 15 year warranty to set their mind at ease.
