For our latest endeavor, we partnered with a client who already demonstrated commendable energy management practices. The goal was not just to address the inconvenience of load shedding but to elevate their energy independence to new heights. Armed with a substantial battery capacity and an expansive solar array, we meticulously designed a system that promises not only to drastically reduce their reliance on grid power but also to harness solar energy with remarkable efficiency. This setup, a blend of foresight and advanced technology, is set to redefine what it means to be self-sufficient in energy usage.


  • Phase 1:
    • Victron MultiPlusII 48/5000/70 Inverter/Charger
    • Victron Lynx Modular Busbar;
    • Victron CerboGX + Touch50
    • SolarMD 14.3 Wall Mount Lithium Battery
  • Phase 2:
    • Victron SmartSolar 250/60 MPPT with 8x 400W PV Modules (North)
    • Victron SmartSolar 150/35 MPPT with 4x 575W PV Modules (East)


  • ESS Enabled;
  • NodeRED Enabled;
  • Programmable Relay ON/OFF: Blue Light on condition loadshedding;
  • Generator Start/Stop on AC-OUT2: START generator to OPEN (disconnect) power on 95%, STOP generator  to CLOSE (connect) power on 98%. Connected to AC_OUT2 on secondary geyser. Essentially uses geyser as a dump load once battery is full. Also, run this 'signal' via Relay1 on CerboGX and using NodeRED to disconnect during overload;
