Take the stress out of Off Grid
Make the most of Commodore’s latest innovation, our updated Off Grid Calculator. Our calculator has been designed to make life easier for you. We understand how difficult it is to choose the right solar system and also how difficult it is to calculate Off Grid. So, we thought why not turn the complicated equations, and worrying decisions associated with going Off Grid into a positive experience, where you simply tick the boxes applicable to you!

What do you have to do?
As the video above displays, all you have to do is:
- Select which products you use around the house
- How long you will use them for per day
By you doing this, our off grid calculator can quickly calculate the:
- Potential Load KW
- Average KWh Per Day
- Which systems will be suitable to your power usage
The ‘Winter average daily effective solar’ section is set at 3 hours per day. This is a conservative estimate based off the average number of effective solar PV input hours in Winter. Our research confirms that the national average annually is between 4 to 5 hours per day. This means 1kW of solar panels will produce between 4kWh to 5kWh per average day. In Winter our research indicates 3 hours of effective solar PV input to be the national average, and 6 hours of effective solar PV input to be the Summer average for Australia. Follow this link below to find the average for your area on a map.
With our tool, you can adjust the amount of effective solar hours to suit your location.
Commodore’s seen the world!
Whilst servicing Australia since 2005, Commodore Australia has tested it’s products around the world. Servicing Papua New Guinea, Vanuatu, New Zealand, Fiji and New Caledonia has been a pleasure for the team. We have been fortunate enough to provide power to remote communities in some of these areas, and help change the life of the residents through Off Grid power, and Solar Pumping.
Commodore prides itself on quality, so it makes sense to use the best quality components in our Off Grid Solar Systems. We have seen proven results with Victron Energy. By using their inverters, colour controllers, charge controllers and many more smaller components, Commodore has received fantastic feedback from our valued family of customers. We are excited by the growth of lithium batteries, and the real results they are producing. Lithium’s revolutionary technology is increasing their expected lifespan to 10-15 years if used every day due to their 6000 discharge cycle. Lithium technology is becoming more and more affordable as well as their popularity is growing. Commodore still supplies led carbon and gel batteries which certainly still have a place in the industry for lower cost options, and off grid weekender properties where they are not discharging every day. To finish off our Off Grid packages, we use reputable panel brands such as Jinko, JA amongst many more. Our team of technician’s are constantly searching the market for proven solar solutions, and components which will deliver the results we deserve.
