And need to develop your idea or want investors ?

https://www.startupbootcamp.org/accelerator/energy-australia/

My employer is going global to find people with innovative start-ups.

The couple that they've helped develop so far are Redback Power

https://redbacktech.com/

and that system I posted that other day that usese the condensation from the A/C to cool the condenser.

Am half thinking of going redback on the house that we buy in a couple weeks time.

A Warm place to live in
A year ago, I was watching a docu on TV done in either Taiwan or Hongkong. A coffee shop was using the condenser heat in its modified window a/c units to heat the water its customers drank with the coffee served.

What's the cycle life on the red back batteries?

Dispatchable and stored solar is probably a smarter way to do it, but also has all the lifecycle challenges of batteries.

Is this cost comparative to the tesla powerwall?

I wish I had a good use for an excess of solar-heated water. Don't use much water here, even less HOT water.

3.5KW solar panels, 3.5KW battery and redback, $3k change on a powerwall.

Complete with the smarts to manage your "home power station", and can install modular battery packs to up the capacity.

Company also sells powerwall...it's the redback smarts that they invested in.
