First commercial application with Lithium Ion batteries
Our high-tech SolaX solar hybrid system with Pylontech lithium-ion energy storage has been installed in a private residence near Naivasha.
The big advantage of lithium-ion (or LIFEPO4 technology) is that 80% of the storage capacity can be safely used, while the number of cycles is exceeding 6000 cycles (@80% depth of discharge). Lead acid batteries storage capacity generally cannot exceed 50%, while the number of cycles is limited to 2500 (25% depth of discharge).
Additionally, lithium-ion batteries can be used in a wide temperature range (up to 50 degrees C) while the performance is not negatively affected. The pylontech battery solution comes in a handsome cabinet, the ‘powercube’ that hides all wiring-interconnections.
