Product Description

Off Grid 3.66kW Solar Power System Looking for an off grid system that will power your cabin, home, or other remote location? Look no further. altE has designed several kits that give you the option to choose the best sytem for your needs - whether you're looking for a roof mount system, a ground mount system, or a pole mount system, or if you have a preference of a battery technology for your energy storage. There is also the option of adding wind power to your off grid system, for a hybrid alternative that complements solar perfectly. These kits are designed to provide you with most everything you need to go off the grid. The performance of each off grid solar power system will vary greatly based on the location where it is installed. See the map below to see the solar potential in your area. And, if you need help sizing a system for your off grid home, start by checking out our Off Grid System Calculator. HOW MUCH POWER WILL I GET FROM THIS SYSTEM? Find your location on the Map. This map shows the amount of daily power, in hours, received each day, on an optimally tilted surface during the time of year when there's the least amount of sun.  So if you lived in the Northeast for example, at 5.4 kWh of daily power, you'd get on average 162 kWh of power each month If you lived in Florida, at 9.7kWh of daily power, you'd get on average 291 kWh of power each month Southwest areas of the country, at 11.9kWh of daily power, can get on average 357 kWh of power each month BASE COMPONENTS OF THIS OFF GRID SYSTEM: The solar panels and the pre-wired inverter/charge controller system and components are included in the base kit. Battery bank and Mounting solutions are options that you can add on.  NOTE:  The image of the solar panels above is representational.  The correct panel will always be listed in the table below.

REC TwinPeak 2 Series solar panels feature an innovative design with high panel efficiency and power output, enabling customers to get the most out of the space used for the installation. **Even though the image above shows poly modules, this system comes with mono solar panels as listed in the table. NEXT WE NEED THE INVERTER AND SOLAR CHARGE CONTROLLER SYSTEM:  The inverter in a renewable energy system will convert the DC power from the solar panels to usable AC power for your home. The charge controller does several things, most importantly keeping your batteries from overcharging, and an MPPT charge controller will allow your solar panels to operate at their optimum power output voltage, improving system performance by up to 30%. In this kit, altE Pre-Wired Inverter System takes the guesswork out of installing a battery based inverter system, saving you valuable time. With a pre-wired solution, the confusion is taken out of selecting all the right parts. This system uses the Schneider Electric Conext SW 4048 Inverter/Charger that is rated at 4,000 watts and uses a 48 volt battery. It produces 120/240 volts AC. The Conext SW is a convenient combination of an inverter, multi-stage battery charger, and transfer switch in one electronic device. The Midnite Solar Classic 150 MPPT Solar Charge Controller is the only MPPT charge controller with both ground fault and arc fault protection built in, providing the greatest protection for your system. And it's made in the USA!

Additionally, it will help overcome some of the issues found with PSOC (partial state of charge) situations that storage batteries will see quite often in PV systems. While Flooded Lead Acid batteries are often the least expensive option up front, you do end up spending slightly more in the long run, as they have to be replaced more often. Also, they do require maintenance, so periodic watering is required. There are design constraints to consider, as these batteries are limited to 4 parallel strings. KiloVault 2100 PLC Advanced AGM Batteries The 2100 PLC is a pure lead carbon sealed AGM deep cycle solar battery, for cycling applications.  KiloVault 2100 PLC is a cost-effective, maintenance-free battery that offers superior performance in Partial State Of Charge (PSoC) applications, combining pure lead and advanced carbon technology for extended battery life and rapid charging.  The batteries are designed for residential or light commercial off-grid, backup, or self-consumption applications. KiloVault Lithium Ferro Phosphate (LFP) Batteries are a drop-in replacement for lead acid batteries, and are much safer. They are modular, lightweight, and scaleable for small to large installations. And better yet - no maintenance, no cooling, and no ventilation required! While this technology is still the highest up front cost, you still get the lowest cost over the life of the system.
