30 kWp Solar Battery Backup System at Mossel Bay Municipality.

Mossel Bay Municipality in the Southern Cape province of South Africa has eliminated the carbon footprint of its Technical Services Department buildings by deploying ZBM2 batteries from Redflow.

Installed in late 2016, the four 10 kilowatt-hours (kWh) zinc-bromine flow batteries have enabled the aging offices to become net exporters of electricity to the power grid through the intelligent storage of energy harvested from 114 rooftop photovoltaic solar panels.  This has effectively made these two buildings carbon neutral and provided a model for how this energy storage technology can be used elsewhere in the community.
