Off grid installs are the perfect candidate for STC solar panel rebates. To get this rebate you need to use CEC approved solar panels with your system and use a CEC approved installer. We have a big list of installers that we use regularly we can steer you in the right direction with getting a rebate for your system. Click here to view a variety of rebates and grants that are available that make off grid solar even more affordable.
Please note these listings do not include installation. Australian standards dictate Installations exceeding 500VA must be done by a qualified electrician, in accordance to electrical safety requirements of your state or territory.” In some cases, additional installation hardware items may be recommended by your installer. But we are happy to assist you with following these guidelines.
Our price guarantee applies to any cheaper price found on an online store or in a physical store in Australia. So, it applies where the other store’s final price, inclusive of delivery, tax, fees and charges are lower than our price. We will then match or better the price. At Commodore, we pride ourselves on offering the very best value for money the first time – it is extremely rare that we are required to match a price on our off grid solar systems, solar pumps and more.
The advantage of lithium batteries is they have more useable energy – up to 96% can be used without adversely compromising battery life. They have more charge / recharge cycles – 6000 or more cycles, depending on depth of discharge. Better constant high current charge / discharge performance – a 10kWh bank can handle a 10kW load, and a surge of 20kW.
Commodore is proud to provide lifetime support for all of it’s customers, on all of their purchases. It is a commitment we strongly value, as it represents:

Choose the right system with our Off Grid Calculator
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. 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! Watch the video below to see how to use our calculator.
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.

Have you seen some of our previous installations and case studies? If not we highly recommend you look at our projects area on our website, this will provide you with context of what an off grid system looks like.
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 Solar.
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.
