Redback Technologies is a Brisbane-based, clean-tech company that manufacture and distribute smart solar storage solutions throughout Australia and New Zealand. Founded in 2015 by renewable energy veterans, Redback’s management has over a century of experience in renewable energy generation, engineering, manufacturing, software development and energy market regulation.
Now, Redback is made up of 45 talented employees who share the same purpose – To enable every household and small businesses to be entirely powered by low-cost renewable energy all day, every day. With a focus on quality and efficiency, Redback’s streamlined solutions incorporate a hybrid inverter, power electronics, cloud system monitoring and related switchgear into all-in-one system design, allowing for a simple installation with reduced install costs.
When the idea of Redback Technologies was born, rapid installation of solar PV on low voltage networks in Australia was apparent. The residential uptake of renewable energy began to transform the energy ecosystem. The founders of Redback Technologies recognised this as an uncontrollable risk for the low-voltage network and therefore represented an opportunity. This energy revolution that was unfolding needed new, affordable, and swiftly deployable solutions that are good for the network, environment, and our wallets.
Additionally, as a collective company vision, Redback saw this as an opening to support and encourage homeowners, and small business owners to switch on renewable energy today for a cleaner tomorrow. Decarbonisation needed to be achieved at a higher level to address the effects of climate change, and Redback wanted to meet this challenge to help create a sustainable future for our current and future generations.
Redback’s founders also recognised that the systems being installed were fragmented, and cobbled together, there wasn’t an all-in-one easy to deploy and install system that provided customers with the information they needed at their fingertips. Commonly and still seen to this day, solar power systems with battery storage can come in an array of different parts connected with disordered cables and cabinets. This setup is inconvenient and doesn’t look great. Redback set out with the aim to improve both the installers and customers experience with solar with battery storage.
Our customers love that they’re able to back-up essential appliances and lighting in blackouts, reduce the cost of their electricity bill, generate and consume their own renewable energy, and monitor their energy use from anywhere at any time with the MYRedback app and Redback Portal.
Helping the world switch on renewable energy today, for a cleaner tomorrow.
