🟢 Community batteries benefit solar customers by maximizing the value of their solar investment without the need for personal battery ownership and maintenance. Instead, they can tap into a larger shared battery owned and managed by Manta Energy, allowing other customers in their community to benefit.

🟢 These advantages extend beyond solar customers. Community batteries foster greater adoption of solar power among households and businesses, boosting the overall amount of renewable energy in the system. They provide a more accessible and fair option for battery storage, particularly for those unable to install individual household batteries.

🟢 Community batteries offer a flexible alternative to traditional infrastructure investment such as poles and wires, they reduce peak demand and enable distributors to keep costs down.

🟢 Community batteries play a crucial role in transitioning towards a low-emission energy system and combating climate change by reducing wastage of solar energy.

🟢 Manta Energy welcomes interest from Councils, community groups, Customers and Installers who want to learn more about how they can benefit from a Manta Energy Community Battery.


🔹 Community batteries operate by enabling solar customers to store surplus power generated by their solar panels during the day and utilize it during the evening or periods of high demand.

🔹 Stored energy can also be used to meet FACs, stabilize the grid or supply other non solar houses in the area.


🔹 Community batteries must meet safety standards and certifications specific to energy storage systems. These standards include requirements for battery safety, electrical safety, and fire safety.

🔹 While there is always some risks associated with electrical equipment we will mitigate these risks through our Operations and Maintenance partner with regular ongoing maintenance to the battery for the duration of the project.


🔹 The physical size of the battery will vary depending on the size of the battery however it is important to note that they can be as small as a car or as large as a shipping container. Participants interested in hosting a battery on their land must consider how much available space they have. And what access to that site can be provided
