Victron Off-Grid Installation by Des Mullins Electrical

Des Mullins Electrical in Wagga NSW was approached by the local community garden to develop a small off-grid solar charged system for their gardening tools. Nick from Des Mullins Electrical designed and cabled up the system, ensuring a neat and efficient setup.


The system includes a Victron 165Ah Deep Cycle Gel Battery, Victron SmartSolar 100/50 MPPT Solar Charge Controller, Victron 12/800 Pure Sine Wave Inverter, Victron BMV-700 Shunted Battery Monitor, and a Noark 80A MCCB and enclosure. Nick also labelled everything clearly for ease of use and maintenance.


The customer provided and installed their own Solar Array & PV Isolator, as well as the Anderson / Cig socket outlet for the 12V DC Loads. We assisted Nick in selecting the appropriate Victron equipment for the project.


The installation has been completed to a high standard, with a focus on safety and efficiency. The DPA team takes pride in delivering high-quality solutions that meet our clients’ needs. We are pleased to have been able to contribute to the community garden’s sustainability efforts and are committed to providing reliable and effective electrical solutions for our clients. Well done, Nick, on a job well done!
