Confronted with critical operational disruptions due to load shedding, our client, a dynamic architectural firm, sought our expertise to restore their productivity. Losing around 4-6 hours of valuable work time daily, they faced not only significant revenue losses but also the burden of excessive overtime to adhere to their project timelines. Their operation, reliant on sophisticated architectural software, high-performance computing stations, commercial printers, and various other essential electrical appliances, required a resilient and reliable power solution. Recognizing the urgency of their needs, we embarked on creating a system that could ensure uninterrupted creative and technical processes.

Notes:

Upon receiving a commendable referral from a satisfied neighbor, our client entrusted us with a significant challenge: to conquer load shedding woes and usher in substantial energy savings. Opting for quality over cost, they chose our premium services despite our quote being the highest. Embracing this trust, we embarked on a meticulously phased project, utilizing the extraordinary flexibility of Victron's range. The result? A testament to efficiency: a mere 1 kWh drawn from the grid over a remarkable 90-day period (Jan'23 - Apr'23).

Components:

Notes:

Customer requirement was to be able to run Home-Office without interruptions. With Stage 6 loadshedding the customer was sacrificing family time in order to get work done, as they had to get up all ours of the day when grid power was available, sometimes sleeping 2 hours at a time to be ready when power is available again.

This system, as small as it seems, powered more than half the house, with leads to areas that fell under a different DB board.

Notes:

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.

Components:

Notes:

In this stylish holiday home with exceptional view the customer required a reliable backup system, and most importantly: something he can expand on in future. The requirement was on a strict timeline and since customer is in import/export business, he was able to supply the batteries.

Notes:

A retired couple approached us to:

With an 5kVA inverter, 5kWh lithium ion battery and a few panels we accomplished just that.

As further benefit, we installed a small LED light to give them an indication when it is load shedding (the system had to be installed in a building separate from the main house)

Components:

Notes:

 

The first request was to "power a lift so grandkids do not get stuck", we advised them to get a 5kW so we can power lift, lights and all the plugs.

On the second phase we added PV panels, but we added so many the battery was full before 9am!! Over the 3rd and 4th phase we expanded the battery bank to 20kWh.

Components:

Notes:

Customer has 2 businesses from home, so being without power is a massive problem. We recommended a phased approach with a battery backup and option to add PV at a later stage. Being a modular Victron solution, we also have option to expand on output capacity and backup capacity.

Components:

Notes:

Customer required to eliminate load shedding and reduce grid consumption. Phase one was a 3kVA inverter, 3.5kWh backup and a 15kWh/day PV Generator. We achieved 50% grid consumption In phase 2 we expanded the backup with another 3.5kWh, reducing the grid consumption with an additional 10-15% an doubling the backup duration during load-shedding.

Components:

Notes:

Customer wanted to eliminate load shedding, not only for him but also for his tenants. As addition functionality we enabled an automatic protection on certain plug to be disconnected should the battery reach 80% during power outage.
