Nice system!! How many batteries do you have?
great system love seing more ppl heading in the self sufficent independent
What are the AMP hours on the batteries total? And how long with no sun can
you power everything? You have enough batteries for all night? I love this
system, in fact I am trying to do just what you did. The best thing I like,
is how you simply removed the breaker from one panel and put it in the
other, OMG. awesome idea!
cool system dude, thanks for sharing!
Why did you have the meter on millivolts when reading Amps?
Panels:1600W/12V=133.33 AMPS (IN) 6Hrs = 799.98 Amps in per day @ 100%
Battery Bank:1600AMP Hrs/50% Usable(800)amps 70% Recommended 12.32
AMPS PER HOUR PER DEVICE.
(1200w-slow cooker)100amps(300w-Desktop Computer)25amps(300w-Desktop
Assuming the ONLY FULL TIME appliance is the Fridge;(62.5)AMP DRAW x 8HRS
Night = 500Amps
Cutting it close, Ever thought about putting a AC timmer on the Fridge.
I can see running “ONE item” at a time, but even by doing so your bank gets
to dying. Is most of this stuff done in the day time? While you can just
use the direct power?
A lot of talking about amps and volts, but not much about energy. How much
enegy [kWh] you produce per month?
Great home made system. One question. Do you know why your charge
controllers are showing different battery levels? One says full and the
other says half full or yellow. Im building my own also and im always
wanting to learn. I have a few ideas about why they are different.
Are you in So Cal? Could you help me set up a solar EV charging system?
Hi, I like the commitment you have made. I also like the led tubes. Can
you provide a link for those? On a different note. You are using way to
small cable. While I know that a amperage chart may show you can use that
guage. But you are experiencing huge loses. I say this as an Electrical
Engineer. Other wise. Good job.
Nice solar system, could you reduce batteries quantity instead of applying
16 engine batteries use 8 telecom batteries?
good job dude very nice you could run the dryer and stove off gas
What is your monthly kwh usage and how much have you invested in solar so
far? What is your monthly savings from grid bill? Nice system btw!
I appreciate your enthusiasm and thank you sharing your setup with us.
Maybe I’m missing something here but rough calculations considering 100w =
1A @ 100v, your panel setup of (6x85w=510w=5.1a, 2x125w=250w=2.5a,
10x85w850w=8.5a) totals 15.1 amps. This does not include any loss which
means you’re panel setup can only be producing approximately 15amps total
at best. So the 19amps + 18amps is not possible and certainly not 48 amps
coming in. I think you might be adding your input + your output or
something else like that, not sure.
The secret here, you have done electronics, and that make it possible for
you. Thanks for sharing.
wow it looks good and you didn’t make holes in your roof. Smart!
Nice video man, thanks for sharing.

Do you run your a/c and heating on solar?
what you need to do is connect 4 panels in series at 48 volt more volts the
buy an outback flexmax 80 they go up to 150 volts and connect your
batteries 24 volts the outback converts 48 volts down to 24 volts works
without a fuss Believe you me you wont be dissapointed and you will never
run again on 12 volts.
oh you might have to change your inverters to 24 volts mine is 24 volts at
3000 watts i power my hopme completely just like yourself works better than
before i was on 12 volts i will never go back infact i would love to go on
36 volts but thatmeans i would have to get rid of my inverter again at 500
euros a piece NO thanks
i produce 6.5 KWH a day and most of the time im on float mode because
batteries a re full
You see like an intelligent person with a lot invested in money and self
education. I enjoyed your video, but I have to make a critical suggestion.
That is that you never run your panels directly into the battery bank. Your
voltage output is too high to consider it CCCV healthy. Plenty of 100 amp
controllers on the market to take care of your total needs. Better to spend
that money now, than on prematurely failed batteries.
Thanks for sharing!
