Perth Solar Warehouse Becomes an Authorised Bluetti Stockist

As the demand for energy convenience increases, so does the demand for dependable and safe portable power supplies. Perth Solar Warehouse, a leading solar and battery supplier of turnkey sustainable energy systems [WA: Top 5], diversifies into camping and portable supplies through the Bluetti product suite.

Portable power systems are undoubtedly on the rise. However, with recent media headlines about lithium battery fires [broadly], it’s essential to identify the quality brands available in the portable power supply space. The Perth Solar Warehouse product suite targets innovative brands with high customer success globally to ensure improved reputational outcomes. Bluetti has a solid history of high customer success throughout America, Europe, Asia and Africa. Therefore, it seems only fitting that such customer satisfaction will continue in Australia, specifically Western Australia.

In a relatively new technology space, very few ‘known’ brands of portable power supplies exist. However, Bluetti has become synonymous with those investing in dependable off-grid solutions.

Customers can purchase Bluetti portable power supplies and solar panels from Bluetti directly online. However, suppose you’re seeking a hands-on buying experience to test your loads/appliances before committing to the investment. In that case, Perth Solar Warehouse provides a more classic in-store approach, combining technical know-how at the point of sale with the bonus of using your Bluetti immediately.

Value guarantee: Perth Solar Warehouse is committed to a Bluetti website price match or better on ‘in-stock’ premium model items.

Sigenergy Partners with Perth Solar Warehouse

Sigenergy SigenStor top left corner with LED light ray.

May 2024: Perth Solar Warehouse announces retailer partnership with energy innovator Sigenergy. Presenting its innovative software-first product foundation, Sigenergy’s initial release to the Australian market is a new generation of energy storage and control, SigenStor. Identified as the dawn of the digital battery era, Sigenstor encompasses a simplified all-in-one solar and storage solution, gaining rapid adoption in Europe and Asia. Fortuitously, this digital era defining product suite is now available for Australia.

Already making waves throughout Europe with an operating system (OS) focused, software-first design and shifting preconceived norms where inverter and battery manufacturers are primarily hardware manufacturers who evolve into software development secondary. It is an afterthought that could prove limited with any company seeking mainstream market appeal beyond 2030 as modern user experience compliments improved “smarter” energy utilisation. 

Founder Tony Xu [ex-Huawei FusionSolar and Ascend AI President] discovered the limitations of hardware-first designs imposed in the new generation of energy management through his previous high-profile business and technical roles. Sigenergy is a testament to where the next chapter of sustainable energy technology begins.

5 in One Sigenergy-SIGENSTOR render

Sigenenergy Sigenstor five-in-one energy solution: Solar Inverter, DC EV charger, Battery Control System, Battery Pack, and Electronic Management System.

Sigenergy brings together much more than improved harmonisation between integral components. Certain hardware elements now answer the pivotal questions most seek in a sustainable energy solution. Despite its well-covered, five-in-one product nature, SigenStor’s versatility exceeds any current market offering. 

Battery modules are flexible. With Sigenstor, there is no need to match a 5 kWh battery configuration throughout the modularity. If one’s ideal storage requirement is 13 kWh, combine a 5 kWh and 8 kWh Sigen Battery Module configuration. Matching SoC (State of Charge) when expanding later is now a thing of the past. Shift the focus, and the EV DC Charger is the mainstream market first, yet much more. The V2X bidirectional charging features convert a compatible vehicle and power supply into increased energy density for a given property. Nothing like this exists in Australia to date, nor is anything announced on the horizon. Sigenergy has entered the market with a resounding impact.

It is a unique solution that is certain to appeal to many through its adaptability and almost unlimited design possibilities. Perth Solar Warehouse is committed to delivering one of the first all-encompassing SigenStor demonstration systems for customers to interact with before purchasing.

Aiko solar panels to add fierce competition in Australia

Q2, 2024, Aiko Solar will arrive in Australia, adding fierce competition in the ultra-high efficiency stakes. Primarily a world-leading manufacturer in cell shipments (Rank: 2nd, 2023, source: InfoLink), the technology and value incorporated within Aiko solar panels initial release, the Neostar 2S, will surely appeal to many purchasers and vendors in the mid-range premium system sector.

Aiko and key Australian distributors have finalised distribution agreements with four high-profile strategic partners: Solar Juice, Sol Distribution, AC Solar Warehouse, and Tradezone. Mckercher Corporation subsidiaries PSW Energy and Perth Solar Warehouse have committed to becoming one of Australia’s installers for Aiko Solar panels as part of a turnkey solution.

Left to right: Grant Behrendorff – AC Solar Warehouse, Elio Cordaro – Sol Distribution,  Alex Hang – Aiko, Rami Fedda – Solar Juice,  Tradezone.

Before the distribution signing, Aiko Australia’s Key Account Manager, Ross Crawford, delivered an in-depth product overview at the product launch. However, he singled out McKercher Corporation Director Derek McKercher to share the moment unveiling the Aiko solar panel range. “About six weeks ago, when I updated my LinkedIn profile to show I was now working for Aiko, I very quickly received an excited phone call from a good friend and solar business owner, Derek McKercher, from Perth Solar Warehouse. Derek was over the moon that I had joined Aiko, and he began to talk to me about how he had been watching Aiko for some time now. It was great to see the Aiko technology reach Australian shores. In the weeks since, Derek has been putting together some great content anticipating Aiko launching in Australia. I want to invite Derek to unveil our product offering…”

Customers can rest assured that we’re committed to delivering the most advanced solar and sustainable energy technology. As an Intersolar and Reddot design awardee for 2023, Aiko Solar has subjected its design to innovative scrutiny and prevailed among its peers from two of the most decorated awards on the global circuit.

Among an elite calibre, REC Alpha Pure previously acquired the 2022 Instersolar award for innovation based on its lead-free HJT (heterojunction technology). In 2021, LONGi Solar added Galium dopping to its wafers, mitigating the effects of performance degradation usually associated with conventional P-Type solar panels in the Hi-MO 5. With high recognition for module innovation and design, Aiko Solar looks set to be a revered name on the Australian landscape.

Unlike alternative leading module efficiency innovators, pricing guidance is a likely 20% premium over alternative mainstream market options–a less conventional premium for an efficiency title holder that is almost sure to attract instant local market traction.

Aiko Solar panels are now available for pre-order at PSW Energy as part of a turnkey solar package.
