Solar controllers on sale

The Victron solar controllers have two unique advantages plus two wonderful aspects.

  1. Get the app! Do away with the display. You save money, plus get better access. Win/win
  2. Double mppt. The Victron are unique in this category using a double mppt strategy. What does this mean? If there is shading on one part of one panel a normal controller sets the mppt level to the lowest panel. All the unshaded panels are set to the shaded level. Major power loss. With Victron the controller watches to see if there is a better mppt level, like the one on the unshaded panels, and then sets a better level. Major power gain!
  3. Of course you get the famous Victron reliability. 5 year warranty! And thousands of controllers in the field proving the reliability.
  4. And price! Even the regular price is amazing for what you get. The price is a bit more than the Asian and a bit less than the US/European alternatives. Compared to the Asian you get better control algorithms and manufacture quality. Compared to the US/European you get better control algorithms and better price. Win/win!

Solar inverters

The Victron inverters are leaders in three areas

  1. amazing efficiency. At 48v the Phoenix 1200 is 94% efficient and uses 6w on idle. Not some special “oh, well if you have nothing plugged in idle” but regular good old always ready to run a load idle. For off grid you can rarely use “waiting idle”; if you have led lights they won’t trigger on “waiting idle”; you may have a clock on your microwave or stove. Those loads need to be run. “Waiting idle” has its place. Just not for homes off grid.
    (Note: Most “other guys” inverter uses 35w on idle. That’s 840 watts every day. Vs the Victrons 144. Imagine you get 3 cloudy days. Which inverter do you want?)
  2. Ability to adapt. With changing battery tech its become useful to change some settings inside the inverter to better manage the new voltage variations. All our Victron inverters have this ability, easily accessed through the Victron App.
  3. Proven reliability. Victron has proven performance from the marine world. These inverters last and last. Not just for years. But for a decade. And they are designed and built to run continuously. Every day. For years. That simply can’t be said about a great deal of the competition. 5 year warranty.
