Family Home - Mt Pleasant (10kVA)

With the house being occupied for the majority of the day and using electricity at expensive peak times, the system owner wanted to lower their energy costs and reduce their reliance on grid supplied electricity whilst contributing to the environment. The importance of quality products, technology and communication capabilities was key, which lead to the Victron Color Control being the heart of this single-phase PV system. The Victron Color Control is an internet gateways which summarizes the system's performance and uploads it to internet for easy access to any internet connected device. The system was coupled with long lasting industrial batteries from First National Battery to increase autonomy.

One of the main requirements of the inverter was the ability to monitor my energy production as well as a quality, future-proof product. This is why I chose Victron and their Quattro inverter. The online monitoring tool installed by SusTech can be used on the web or through an app on my phone so I can check my system wherever I am.
