Off grid system
Hi, I was wondering if I posted a system that I'm looking at for our new house if anybody could give me some advice as to whether they thought it would be adequate. We are a family of 6 with three more home on regular visits, We'll have a propane stove, dryer, and hot water heater as well as the usual household appliances and a well pump. Well, here goes
Magnum Inverter/Charger MS4024PAe
Magnum E panel with 15 amp ac breaker, BTS
60 amp DC breaker for solar
Remote LCD display
12 Surrette S-530 6 V Batteries
9 Kyocera 235 W solar panels
Xantrex Solar controller
that's basically it as well as various cables, and a propane generator.
I don't really understand solar even though I have been reading about it for years. I thought the battery bank seemed a bit small but the solar installer said something like that is what they recommend now. So maybe my information is a bit dated.
If anybody could take a look at this and tell me what you think, I would really appreciate it. I know we could increase the size later if it's not big enough but I would rather do it now.
