Apple farmer installs vanadium battery to increase solar consumption

A Victorian apple orchard will expand its PV fleet to 160 kW and add a 20kW/80kWh vanadium redox flow battery as it seeks to increase its renewable energy consumption. The battery system was sold to family owned and operated business Priest Bros by ASX-listed company Australian Vanadium Limited (AVL), through its battery subsidiary VSUN Energy.

The battery system will provide a minimum of four hours of stored solar energy. It will be installed together with a 100 kW PV array by VSUN, in collaboration with renewable systems provider Profit Share Power.

Bushveld Minerals Limited (LON:BMN), together with its subsidiaries, engages in the exploration and development of mineral projects in South Africa. It operates through three segments: Vanadium and Iron Ore, Coal Exploration, and Vanadium Mining and Production.
