Freedom Won: your go-to for solar energy storage

SegenSolar has been fortunate enough to work closely with a wide variety of innovative and industry-leading BESS manufacturers over the years.  

One such company is Freedom Won: one of the largest manufacturers of energy storage solutions in Africa, with over a decade of experience producing state-of-the-art products for PV and grid-tied applications.  

Reflecting on over a decade of Freedom Won 

Freedom Won was started in 2010 following its first successful electric vehicle (EV) conversion project. 

The South African manufacturer began to specialise in lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) battery technology and explore its renewable energy applications. This advanced chemistry is renowned for its thermal stability and longevity, making it suitable for enhancing the capabilities of solar energy solutions — storing more energy for longer. 

By 2015, Freedom Won’s LiFePO4 solutions had evolved into its flagship LiTE (Lithium To Energy) battery range. This product suite caters to residential, commercial and industrial applications, with models ranging from 10kWh to 800kWh (battery capacity can be expanded to 16MWh).  

More than 10 years since breaking into the market, Freedom Won continues to achieve phenomenal year-on-year growth and drive innovation in the energy storage sector across Africa and beyond.  

Freedom Won’s success is a testament to its commitment to carving out a future without fossil fuels. By developing safe and reliable BESS that allows more people to embrace renewable energy, the forward-thinking company is helping home and business owners mitigate the effects of load shedding, rolling blackouts and grid falters across the country. 

We are thrilled to offer some of Freedom Won’s most popular products on the portal, including a selection of flexible BESS for residential, commercial and industrial applications. 

The Freedom Won portfolio 

We stock several batteries from the Freedom Won LiTE Home, Business and Commercial ranges. These high-quality batteries offer the ultimate solution for large commercial and industrial PV systems, capable of supporting high charge and discharge power in a single deployment.  

Products from the Freedom Won LiTE Business range are compatible with most inverters and enjoy quick charge times due to their high charge capacity. And with the option to expand the system with up to 20 batteries in parallel, these cells help create powerful systems that meet most organisations’ energy needs. 

For residential installations, we offer the Freedom Won LiTE Home range — with batteries ranging from 10kWh to 30kWh. When installed as part of a residential energy storage system, these modules provide a safe and stable power supply at a fraction of the cost of a traditional lead acid battery. 

This suite also features the Freedom Won eTower: a modular 5kW, 52V solution for residential and smaller commercial applications. This stackable battery boasts an array of benefits for installers, including a recommended 80% depth of discharge, easy vertical mounting and wide inverter compatibility.  

All Freedom Won LiTE batteries have integrated cell protection and a 10-year local manufacturer’s guarantee for additional peace of mind.
