Hello, recently I was presented an opportunity to build a 80kWh backup battery system for a friend of mine. I'm thinking for in both terms of longevity and in cost I am planning on purchasing 15 Tesla Model S Lithium Ion Battery Modules equipped with liquid cooling from EV West. I have been in contact with EV West but they said that they do not provide liquid cooling to any of their systems. I was wondering if anyone could recommend a company or link to a liquid cooling kit (if that even exists) or what parts I will need to make a liquid cooling system for my proposed build. Thank you guys appreciate all the help and knowledge!

Its for a very large house that will be drawing allot of power. It will end up running relatively large loads and be in use every day and night. Just to be sure I get a long use out of it I'd like to add the cooling system in even if it is redundant.

are you going to use a high voltage inverter? (because you specify 15 modules)

otherwise better use an even number, so you can use 2 in series for a 48 volt system.

if you stay below 1/5C you really don't need cooling, the cooling channels by itself are quit good in evening out the temperature along the modules.

above 1/4 C you'll want to use cooling.
