Recently installed: LiFePO4 Backup Power System

Greeen Energy Solutions recently installed a backup solution for a well know medical supplies company in Randburg.

We made use of a Victron 3000W 48V inverter and a 5kWh Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) battery.
The battery was supplied by http://www.freedomwon.co.za/

Just some of the advantages of using a Lithium Iron Phosphate battery are:

  • 70% less weight and size.
  • Up to 7000 charge and discharge cycles, compared to 3000 of lead acid battery.
  • 92% efficiency instead of 70% efficiency of a lead acid battery.
  • 1/3 the cost per charge / discharge cycle of lead acid battery.

After installing the new Backup power system, we removed and recycle the old lead acid batteries:
