New from Growatt, a global leader of solar energy solutions, comes the ARK modular Lithium battery – a cobalt-free LiFePO4 battery that continue to improve the newest generation of solar technology.
Lithium batteries are already known to offer several advantages over traditional lead acid batteries for solar – they’re lighter, more efficient, and last longer. The ARK is no exception.
They have a unique design that offers incredibly easy installation by simply stacking the batteries, which also makes for easy expansion down the track, ideal for off-grid solar applications. This design also allows for greater flexibility of capacity, starting at 2.56kWh with just one battery, expandable up to 25.6kWh with 10 batteries.
Compatible with our range of Growatt Hybrid Inverters, the Growatt ARK battery comes with top-of-the-line multi-level protections through both the inverter and in-built Battery Management System, so you don’t have to worry about anything but getting enough sunshine!
Each battery is 48V with a usable capacity of 2.3kWh, allowing you a 90% Depth of Discharge where most Lithium batteries only offer 80%. It also has a cycle life of over 6000, offering fantastic longevity over other batteries for solar – it even comes with a 5-year warranty.
Weighing in at 30kg a battery, the ARK is a much lighter battery than other solar options, even when compared to other Lithium options, and can be ground mounted on a separate pedestal or wall mounted.
Growatt ranks among the top 10 PV inverter suppliers, and are well known for bringing elegant, smart, and powerful features to their products. Having tested and used them, we’re very impressed, and excited to offer this innovation to our customers.
