Goodwe are ranked as the Global No. 1 in Hybrid Inverter suppliers confirmed by Wood Mackenzie, and have an excellent name in the industry. The Hybrid model will work seamlessly to run your house off any available solar power, charge the battery bank and export any additional solar power back to the grid for feed in tarrifs. In the event of an outage back up circuits can be powered off the battery power, and any solar connected to the new inverter will continue to run and charge the batteries.

Package Includes:

  • Goodwe 5kW inverter charger Goodwe 5000EH ( data sheet attached)
  • BYD Lithium Battery, Premium Bank High Voltage HVM Series- select quantity from Dropdown menu
  • Racking, cabling and isolators to suit.

BYD Lithium HVM LiFePO4 batteries

The batteries are an attractive design, which feature BYD’s patented modular plug design for stacking additional batteries together, without the need for any additional cabinetry. BYD are one of the biggest lithium battery manufacturers in the world, at Commodore we have been using their batteries in grid connected and off grid systems for many years now, they offer exceptional performance and value.

  • More usable energy up to 96% can be used without adversely compromising battery life
  • More Charge / Recharge cycles 6000 or more cycles, depending on depth of discharge
  • Better constant high current Charge / Discharge performance
  • Greater charge efficiency up to 97% ! this means far less energy wasted during charging and more power available to you in less time
  • More energy stored in less space
  • Internal intelligent management means each battery module can operate to its potential, rather than performing only as well as the weakest battery

Solar array

JA Solar. For a long time JA Solar have been one of the biggest names in the solar industry, there panels have truly passed the test of time and they continue to offer some of the highest efficiency panels on the market. This listing features the 330W modules, which have a 12 year workmanship warranty, and 25 year output warranty.

Depending on location, the annual daily average in Australia is 4 to 5 hours equivalent of full power from the array per day (where a 1kW array would give between 4 – 5kWh per day if demanded) with more in summer and less in winter. A large solar PV array design principle reduces the amount of time the batteries will be low on charge, which maximises their life expectancy & provides you with far more reliable power. Average daily potential solar yield:

  • 20 x 330w panels = 39.6kW per day in Summer, approximately 26kW in Winter.

We can offer Subsidized freight with insurance to have the kits delivered on site or to a nearby freight depot. Installation solutions available in most areas.

Finance available for purchases over $5,000
