About this Project

Introducing Org’s beautiful home in one of Pretoria’s finest country estates. A generator solution would certainly be frowned upon in this tranquil country estate, where a clean energy hybrid power system would be far more appropriate.

Increasing grid power failures as well as the ever-increasing electricity tariffs justified a premium and effective system for this elegant and modern home.

GreenHouse designed a state-of-the-art 3-Phase hybrid power system using industry-leader Victron Energy equipment and paired to a lithium battery bank from Pylontech.

The entire system is monitored, sending alerts to Org and his family when necessary (e.g. Grid power failure). The monitoring system allows them to see important details, including:

  • Solar Energy Generated
  • Home Energy Consumption
  • Grid Energy Consumption
  • Battery State-of-Charge (SOC)

All of this monitoring data is stored in the cloud and can be accessed through the Victron App, called VRM.

System Details:
3 x Victron MultiPlus II 5kVA Inverter/Chargers
1 x Victron SmartSolar 250/70 Solar Charge Controller
1 x Fronius Symo 3-Phase 10.0kW PV Inverter
9.6kWh of Pylontech US2000 Lithium Battery
15.84kWp Solar Array
