As a certified dealer of Victron Energy MPPT Solar Charge Controllers, Colorado Standby offers a wide variety of solar charge controllers for all customers. From small solar panel setups to whole-home systems, we have what you need.
All Victron Energy MPPT Solar Charge Controllers use an MPPT (Maximum Power Point Tracker) system to provide continuous power in all weather conditions, which helps maximize efficiency. A smart algorithm tracks and adjusts power input and output automatically.

This system differs from PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) solar chargers, which are a less expensive but less efficient alternative. In this type of system, current is always drawn from the panel at just above your battery voltage until it’s full. Then, it switches on and off to maintain the desired float voltage for the battery.
PWM can be up to 30% less efficient than MPPT, so it’s not ideal for whole-home solar systems, where efficiency is essential.
MPPT solar charge controllers also have built-in load output controls to prevent overcharging of batteries, and Victron Energy MPPT Solar Charge Controllers include Bluetooth and the VictronConnect app, which allows you to easily monitor, adjust, and control power output.
First, Victron Solar Charge Controllers are built to integrate seamlessly with other Victron products offered by Colorado Standby, making them a great all-in-one solution. However, they are also compatible with additional equipment from most other vendors.
In addition, the power adjustment features and efficiency of Victron MPPT technology provides efficiency that is up to 10% higher than competing MPPT solar charge controllers from other manufacturers.
Dependability is one of the best features of Victron MPPT Solar Charge Controllers. All units in this product lineup have been designed with the highest-quality components to ensure proper performance and a long lifespan, which is critical in off-the-grid solar panel applications.
