“THE BIG RIG” Victron Off Grid Kit 10KVA Inverter – BYD Lithium Bank 40KWH

$68,000.00 $58,880.00


At Commodore Australia we’re proud to offer the very latest and safest in lithium battery technology from BYD with the new modular lithium battery system. Paired with the time proven Victron Inverter Charger system, this package brings the best modern renewable energy technologies together.

Here at Commodore we specialize in off grid what that means is that when you purchase a system from us you can have confidence that it will do exactly what you want it to do, that it is going to be supremely reliable as we would only sell what we would install in our own house and best of all we are here to help you every step of the way after you’ve purchased your system. You will not get a better price on an off grid system full stop. We are one of the biggest off grid distributors in Australia we offer you the best price the first time.

Peace of mind is an important facet of living self sufficiently or off grid. The Victron hardware is covered by an outstanding 5 year replacement or repair warranty. The BYD Lithium battery system features an outstanding 10 year warranty, and is constructed of the safest and best performing lithium battery technology – Lithium Ferrous Phosphate (otherwise known as LiFePo4 or LFP).

This stand alone renewable energy package uses the tried & proven Victron 10kVA Quattro Solar Inverter Charger, Victron BlueSolar  MPPT Solar charge controller and the Colour Control GX system display, coupled with 60x 280w A Grade CEC approved bushfire rated solar panels & the expandable BYD Lithium battery system. Please click on the links for the respective brochures and specifications. If links don’t work, ask for it.

The BYD Lithium Bank 40KWH is made of a specially designed cabinet fitted with 2.5kWh modules, which are rated to 6000 cycles to 96% Depth Of Discharge (otherwise called DoD). These modules can be added at any time to expand the capacity of the system. They have a constant power rating equal to their capacity – 2.5kW each – making them very suitable for off grid and high demand applications. Many lithium battery types are limited to much lower constant power ratings. Download Kratos introduction & Lithium battery type comparison sheet. The battery bank can be expanded up to 80kWh total capacity (32x modules in 8 cabinets) .

This solar PV design principle reduces the amount of time the battery will be low on charge, which maximises the life expectancy & provides far more reliable power. The solar array can recharge the battery bank from 96% discharged in around 3.5 hours of full clear sunshine, depending on time of day, weather & any loads running on the system at the same time. A generator can be used to recharge the battery bank and run loads through the inverter too.

If you need a ‘grid hybrid’ system where you wish to use as much of your own solar power as possible and use less power from the grid, it is not essential to consider a few days’ backup. The ‘average daily usage’ figures from your electricity bills are a good place to start.*

Detailed solar, battery & system information is displayed on the Victron Colour Control GX system display panel. Once connected to the internet, this info call also be viewed on on your smartphone or PC – click here for more info on the Colour Control GX.

Package Includes:

    • 280w A grade Mono/ Poly Crystalline CEC approved Solar Panels x 60
    • Victron 10kVA Quattro Solar Inverter Charger
    • Victron BlueSolar 2 x 150/100 MPPT 100A Solar Charge Controller
    • Victron Colour Control GX system display panel with remote monitoring
    • VE.Direct connection cables
    • 16 x BYD 2.5kWh Lithium battery modules & cabinet IP 55 Tall cabinets per 4 batteries
    • DC Disconnect / Battery Breaker & Fuses to suit
    • DC Solar PV Isolator & breakers
    • 5 Metres of Battery Cabling 50mm2 – 4x 1.25m lengths with lugs fitted
    • 16 Metres of Battery Cabling 25mm2 – 8x 1.25m lengths with lugs one end
    • 120 Metres of Solar Cable / 6x 20m fitted with solar connectors one end
    • Solar Panel racking to suit Tin roof (Tile & Tilt upgrades available)
    • Safety Sticker Kit & Connection guides

The system can be expanded at any time in the following ways:

  • Up to 80kWh battery storage – using 2.5kWh modules & 1x cabinet per 4x modules
  • Up to 6x Inverter Chargers for up to 30kVA rated output power – set single phase or 3 phase
  • Within sensibility, basically an unlimited amount of solar power can be installed, adding more MPPT controllers as required & setting charge limits appropriate for the battery bank.

Create an Off Grid power system. Power will be supplied primarily from the solar panels & battery bank. If there is insufficient power, the inverter can make use of a petrol, diesel or gas powered generator to recharge the batteries & run the household loads intuitively. The system can start the generator automatically providing the generator is compatible with two wire starting – some ATS systems are also compatible with two wire start.

Create a Grid-Hybrid system, where your Solar energy is used & stored as first priority**. Power will be supplied primarily from the solar panels & battery bank. If there is insufficient power, the inverter supplements power using the Grid AC power supply automatically. This design principle uses your solar & stored energy first before using the mains grid power. This can be more feasible than the low grid feed-in tariff typically on offer. Victron’s Battery Safe feature retains a set amount of charge in the battery bank, utilising the mains to keep the battery operating in the optimal range. A generator can be used in place of grid power for charging the batteries and running loads in the event of a few cloudy days or some heavy power usage.

** If you wish to make a grid hybrid system with or without grid feeding / export of solar power, we can change to the Victron MultiGrid inverter chargers for this purpose. This would add approx $1800 to the system price. The MultiPlus inverter included with this listing is not suitable for mains connection or grid feeding / export of solar power.. Please contact us if you wish to change the system in any way.
