All off grid solar kits electrical systems have three things in common: one or more energy sources, energy storage (battery bank), and a power conversion unit (inverter). There are many different sizes and types of each of these components and each is interdependent on the others.

Here is one example of a stand alone solar system that can give your get-away cabin all the comforts of home. The pre-packaged kit comes with an expandable off grid solar system that includes six powerful Kyocera KD135 solar panels. Run an energy efficient refrigerator, washing machine, computer, table saw, stereo, lights and TV. Clean sine wave power from the Magnum Energy inverter is the heart of this off grid system. Off Grid System Array Size 810 (Watts) up to 121.5kWh a day (Monthly Output based on 5 hrs).

Here is what is included:

AC (alternating current) Off Grid Solar Power Pre-packaged kit.

6 Kyocera KD135GX-LP135 watt solar module
1 IronRidge UNI-TP/08LL Top of Pole Mount
6 Lay-in Ground Lug with Stainless Screw (1)
2 MC4 10 AWG – 30′ cable extension
1 MidNite MNPV-3, 3 Position Combiner Box
2 CBI OBPV-15 DC Breaker 150 VDC din-rail mounted
1 Outback FM60 & Breakers installed on Magnum E-Panel – The FLEXmax 60 is the latest innovation in Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) charge controllers from OutBack Power Systems. MPPT technology finds the maximum power available from the solar panels to recharge batteries. FLEXmax 60 is capable of operating at higher temperatures then previous models without loosing power. Although the FLEXmax 60 is designed to work with solar power, it will work with micro-hydro turbines. OutBack Power Systems will only offer limited tech support for these because there is too much variance in micro-hydro specifications.
1 WSS Magnum Power Center MS2012/1, 2,000 watts 120VAC – Model: MS2012/1 This pre-wired solar power center has a Magnum Energy Inverter mounted on a MidNite Solar E-panel model 2012010.
1 Magnum ME-BMK Battery Monitor installed on Magnum E-Panel
1 4/0 – 120″ UL Cable, Battery/Inverter (black)
1 4/0 – 120″ UL Cable, Battery/Inverter (red)
4 2/0 – 12″ UL Cable, Battery Interconnect (black)
6 2/0 – 18″ UL Cable, Battery Interconnect (black)
8 UPG UB-GC2 AGM 200 aH 6V Battery – UPG’s state-of-the-art lead-acid deep cycle battery is a valve-regulated type—sometimes called “sealed” or “maintenance-free”—which fixes the acid electrolyte in a gel or in an absorptive fiberglass mat. The advantage of this design is that the battery needs no water additions, can be operated in any position, and can be used in close proximity to people and sensitive equipment.
