Stevenson - St Helena

Customer familiar with the quality of Victron approached us for an installation on a holiday home in Britannia Bay. This house was to become the new primary residence over time. We proposed a phased approach (there was construction to come) in order to facilitate all current needs and available roof space, and then to add more PV and battery later as construction conclude and needs require it.

One big requirement was to charge the Volvo XC40 Recharge with solar power.


  • 2x Victron MultiPlus-II 48/5000/70 Inverter/Chargers
  • Victron RS 450/100 MPPT with 3.5kWp PV (for now)
  • Victron EV Charger
  • Victron CerboGX+Touch50
  • Solar MD 14.3kWh Lithium Battery


  • ESS Enabled;
  • Generator-Start-Stop enabled on AC-Out2 to enable loads up to 40% of battery during power outages;
  • EV charger is still in manual, waiting for updated firmware to make it part of ESS;
