Lasts 2x longer than standard energy storage systems
Designed & Developed
The PowerCap® is a Hybrid battery that captures clean and affordable energy throughout the day to reduce grid reliance and your energy bill.
Working as an evergreen energy bank for your home, the PowerCap® automatically adjusts to grid behaviour to provide uninterrupted, guilt-free energy usage even during blackout periods.
This is a global independent inspection which means the PowerCap® has been tested for safety and found to meet the requirements.
As CEC solar accredited installers we can arrange your complete solar + PowerCap® installation.

The PowerCap® is a graphene-based Electrical Energy Storage System that absorbs affordable energy during the day for later use. Unlike most batteries on the market today, PowerCap® technology is made from natural graphene hybrid technology. With no degradation in performance, the PowerCap® uses electro-chemical-static architecture to store power for up to 3 months.
The PowerCap® system uses graphene to capture electrons sustainably and releases them upon demand instantaneously. The PowerCap® connects to a local energy supply (solar or grid) through the switchboard and uses an inverter to regulate the charge and discharge.
The PowerCap® can be retrofitted to an existing solar system to harness the sun’s natural energy for later use. This way, PowerCap® owners always have access to secure, clean, on-demand energy.
To ensure protection during power outages, we recommend that a 15kWh single-phase or 14.4kWh three-phase of energy storage be fitted to accommodate 6.6kW of solar PV.
When a PowerCap® is installed with no accompanying solar system, it can charge from the grid when prices are low to protect against peak tariff fees. This PowerCap® configuration still provides blackout protection but cannot recharge from the grid during this period.
Although the PowerCap® can be used in conjunction with backup generators, an external Automatic Transfer Switch (ATS) or Manual Transfer Switch (MTS) is required. In the event of a blackout, the PowerCap® responds immediately to provide backup power. A generator is only employed when the PowerCap®’s charge drops below a set threshold. Generally, this would only occur during extended periods of power vacancy. Because the PowerCap® is directly connected to the power switchboard it cannot charge directly from a generator.
