Tried and Tested

More than a philosophy

- Leigh Horton

Horton Solar Consulting Pty Ltd - Product Design System Design and Product Testing.

Product and System Design for a Sustainable World, with real world testing in a harsh environment on Cape Blanche on the West Coast of South Australia.

In the pursuit of power independence the 'Tribrid Power" system design was developed over 12 years. Continuous testing of battery types and inverter chargers laying the foundation for what is now a proven power system. The development started with the 'Tribrid' comprising three power generation systems, Solar generation, Wind generation and Diesel generation. The first containerized power system was designed 2006 by Leigh Horton, Chief Product Designer for West Coast Solar and Wind based in South Australia and deployed in mine sites in China.

The new 'Tribrid' system is a completely new design with Solar generation, Wind generation and Dual battery storage. The design has a lithium battery and a lead carbon battery with two inverters. The core inverter is a Deye 8.8 kW single phase hybrid inverter. The second inverter is a Victron Quattro 8 kW inverter charger. The design reduces the carbon footprint for the 'Tribrid Power' system and can easily incorporate new fuel cell technologies.
Solar panels are new Seraphim half cell 400w panels and EmmVee Saphire 535W Bifacial . The wind turbines from Braun Windturbinen and BestWatt. The batteries are Freedom Won Lite, and Narada REX Carbon. The diesel generator is rarely used and has been started monthly for programmed exercise.

The Decentralised Power System design based on the Edison DC model and has been designed for Micro Grids of the future. The design replaces the centralised array and inverter battery systems in conventional Micro Grid systems. The decentralised design is ideally suited to strata title sites, small communities and micro grids for larger towns. The design is based on the HSC SAPS cabinets.

A key design factor is Redundancy. CE&T inverter systems - no master slave, new modular EnergyBank batteries with no single points of failure inherent in Micro Grid systems and in particular off-grid installations. Our "Dual Battery" design with ArcActive EnergyBank bipolar Carbon batteries is a fully redundant system CO2 savings with Generator replacement.

Stephen Soutar sums this is up very well. "The renewable energy boom is happening but without optimisation and integration alternate energy systems are often ineffective and inefficient, never realising the return on investment that you were most likely promised, and simply creating more headaches for the power grid. Our sophisticated systems are designed around farming and irrigation settings, and our expertise in engineering, automation, and process control have allowed us to create a number of extremely ‘Smart’ products and concepts that provide significant energy savings, as well as excellent remote operation and monitoring capabilities."

Developing and growing the adoption of green energy solutions and electric mobility globally.

Efficiency, Performance, Reliability

A comprehensive service characterized by flexibility and quality, based on highly reliable products and obtained through constructive original and technologically advanced solutions.

CLEANISLAND is a family of converters developed to respond to the needs of Energy Storage systems in a flexible way. They are connected both to the grid (grid storage) and connected to an island user or to an isolated grid (hybrid systems).

In the first case, the PCS (Power Converter System) manages the charge and discharge of a battery connected, through the grid, in parallel to a renewable energy production system, with the aim of uniforming over time the energy supplied to the grid itself.In the second case, the PCS connects a renewable energy production system to an isolated user or an isolated grid and, at the same time, it manages the charge and discharge of a battery, with the purpose of ensuring supply continuity to the island load. The PCS has two modes of operation:

  • Grid following: the PCS is connected to an isolated grid to which other sources of production are connected and therefore it works as an inverter connected to the grid
  • Grid forming: the PCS is the master generator that supplies the island load

the conversion system for the renewable energy

Our inverters can be applied to all renewable energy plants: small wind turbines (mini wind) micro and mini hydroelectric turbines, gas and steam mini turbines and they are designed specifically for different applications. They are produced with an outdoor cabinet, equipped with everything so to be the only interface between the generation system and the grid.

Elpower has standardised and certified two classes of conversion systems:

  • Double inverter (back to back) for applications at variable speed in which the electric generating system uses a permanent magnet synchronous generator or synchronous excited or asynchronous mainly in the fields of mini wind, micro and mini hydroelectric sector, and co generation (micro gas and steam turbines). 
  • Wind Energy, Hydroelectric Energy and Cogeneration

    Cleanverter is the most comprehensive and common series on the Italian market for inverters specifically studied for these applications. It includes inverters for wind turbines with a small size, mini hydroelectric plants and co generation systems and devices for controlling the inverters remotely.

Total solution for sustainable energy

BestWatt offers a total solution that generates the right amount of sustainable energy for your business. A combination of wind and solar power, as well as energy storage. Solar power and wind power complement each other perfectly. On warm summer days, wind turbines are often switched off, whereas solar panels make overtime. At night and in poor weather, wind turbines churn out power merrily. By storing generated power, you can use the energy when you need it.


Generate it yourself, use it yourself. That is the BestWatt motto.
The BestWatt total solution lets you generate 100% of your own sustainable energy. Based on regulations, permits and applicability, we install small wind turbines for mainly agricultural businesses.
Energy Solutions

BestWatt offers a total sustainable energy solution for agricultural and other businesses: a combination of wind power, solar power, and storage. The BestWatt total solution lets you generate 100% of your own sustainable energy – as well as contribute to a cleaner environment and a future without fossil fuels. The BestWatt wind turbine, solar panels, and energy storage improve your company’s sustainable image.
The key factor is that the energy should be synchronized – as much as possible. When we generate wind power, there is often no solar input.

Sustainable, low-cost and highly efficient energy storage

Arc of innovation.

In the 1970s, former ArcActive CTO Professor John Abrahamson was the first person to find and characterise Carbon Nano Tubes ("CNTs”). Carbon Nano Tubes exhibit remarkable electrical conductivity, and have exceptional tensile strength and thermal conductivity. In 2007, John joined forces with ArcActive CEO Stuart McKenzie, and ArcActive was founded with the goal of developing a continuous process for arc-treating carbon fibre. The resulting technology, now patented as ArcCarbon, has been leveraged by the ArcActive team to improve the charge acceptance and longevity of lead acid batteries, finally unleashing the full capability of this ubiquitous technology.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  “Lead [acid] batteries are by far the most important market, with greater than 70% market share of the rechargeable battery market." Christophe Pillot, Avicenne Energy, 2020

Our Mission.

We strive to create low-cost decarbonisation through innovation.

That’s our ‘why’. It’s what gets us out of bed every morning, and it’s what drives our company forward each day. For almost 15 years, we’ve been re-engineering the lead acid battery industry.

Improving battery technology is a huge opportunity to reduce CO2 emissions, whether by enabling the electrification of vehicles or supporting the growing use of renewable energy.  

We keep our environmental impact low.

While lithium-ion batteries are an important technology, lead acid batteries (LAB) have been widely deployed for well over 100 years, and the LAB industry shows no signs of slowing down. In fact, the lead acid battery is the most recycled consumer product in history.

Enough lead has already been extracted from the ground to ensure a constant supply of lead acid batteries. That’s why we believe that the quickest way to drive low-cost decarbonisation at scale is by re-engineering the lead acid battery industry.
