Bringing power to a brand new off grid lakehouse. The Finished solar system powers lighting, septic pump, well pump and furnace fan as part of a whole off grid power solution that includes propane and a generator for backup.
Installed two solar arrays that collect maximum solar energy using six 400W panels in a limited space.
- AUTOMATIC GENERATOR STARTUP
Included an Automatic Generator Start (AGS) to seamlessly support solar power when batteries get low.
- VENTED BATTERY BOX
Installed a custom-built battery enclosure that vents to the outside. The battery bank uses 16 6-Volt batteries connected to create a 48V DC supply.
- RAPID SHUTDOWN
System design includes rapid shutdown disconnects with RSD switch for safety, as per the new CEC standards.
Installed a controller that grabs the DC power from the solar arrays and converts it to 48V DC, supplying energy to the battery bank and the inverter.
- INVERTER CHARGER
Installed a Inverter Charger to convert the DC power received from the controller into household power.
