Inverter, panels and batteries

We decided on a Sol-Ark 12 kw inverter as our main component for the first phase. The 12k provides the most versatile options of the inverters we reviewed and flexible options for installation and configuration. We initially purchased 20 additional 30 volt 300 watt panels so with the original 10 30 volt 250 watt panels… Continue reading Inverter, panels and batteries

Additional Panels

We decided to purchase an additional 20 Hyundai 300 Watt panels making a total of 30 panels and 8,500 Watts. We plan to construct an equipment shed next to our shop and mount the panels on the roof of the shed with inverter and batteries in an enclosed area under the shed. This will be… Continue reading Additional Panels

Solar Panels

We purchased 10 panels to get started. They are Whitelabel 250w – SS250P-60V 250 watt ~30 volt Solar Panels. We are in the process of purchasing another 20 300 watt Hyundai panels which will give our initial installation 6,000 watts + 2,500 watts = 8,500 watts. We are also planning to use a Sol-Ark 12K… Continue reading Solar Panels

For the first design phase we purchased 10 250 Watt solar panels. Not the most efficient but we will be adding to it as we get… Continue reading Getting started
