Did you go off the grid ages ago? 5 years? 10 years? 15 years or more? You may have seen today’s prices on solar panels and feel a bit envious. Now is a good time to add a second array to an existing system for minimal cost. A new set of panels, mounting, cabling, and charge controller are the basics needed to increase the amount of solar charging delivered to your battery bank. These additions will run side by side along with your original array; no changes are needed to your existing system. Backwoods has developed three Overhaul Examples for your consideration.
12 Volt Battery Bank
700 Watt array using 235W or similar panels
Pole Mount for installation in yard, cabling, and grounding lugs (or we can add to an existing roof mounted array)
Combiner box with disconnect breaker and surge protector
Solar disconnect breaker, GFDI breaker, controller disconnect breaker
MPPT charge controller and temperature sensor, sized appropriately for the system
Approx. $2,700.00 plus shipping and freight to your location.
