PowerPlus batteries Auckland
Victron Energy Auckland


After an initial Zoom session with this off-grid client on Rakino Island, we carefully planned a system upgrade from old lead batteries to brand new PowerPlus ECO4840 Batteries.

A Victron SmartSolar MPPT Controller was installed to gather energy from the solar panels to store in the batteries.

A Victron Smart Battery Monitor with built in blue tooth  sends all system and battery information to the VictronConnect app on the owners phone, any time, anywhere in the world.

The property already had a myriad of solar panels on the roof, plus a further ground mounted solution. This had been completed many years ago when the lead battery system was originally installed,  not by Solarcraft.  The original roof panels will be replaced with our SunPower modules in the near future as they are also in need of an upgrade which will further compliment the new technology.

We have set up all types of systems to get freight safely to all of the surrounding islands in the gulf and work frequently on Great Barrier Island, Rakino, Kawau Island and Moturoa / Rabbit Island.
