Inverters are the heart of every solar system. Technologically, the inverter is the most important component of your solar plant. It converts the direct current generated in the solar cells into alternating current compliant with the grid requirements for self-consumption or to export power to the utility grid. As an intelligent system manager, it also monitors both the solar array and the grid-interactive power distribution grid. SMA inverters already perform important grid management functions, which are becoming increasingly important as electricity production from renewable sources grows. SMA has been developing leading technological solutions and pioneering trends in this area for years and is driving future-oriented topics. For instance, these include intelligent energy management at a household level, grid integration of solar power and connecting storage facilities for more effective use of renewable energy.

The new Sunny Boy high frequency inverters are designed for projects requiring UL certification and represent the next step in innovative SMA technology. Featuring world-class efficiency, a slim-line enclosure and reduced weight, the Sunny Boy HF series of inverters can be mounted in between wall studs, making it perfect for new construction or space-constrained retrofits. Installation is made simple by automatic grid detection*, field configuration for positive ground modules and a wide input voltage range of 175 to 600 V, which provides exceptional system design flexibility. The modern graphic display and wireless Bluetooth communication system provides a wealth of data in a user-friendly format

Canadian Solar CS6P-250P is a robust 60 cell module which makes them ideal for this grid-tied system. These panels can be used on-grid or grid-interactive applications. Canadian Solar's meticulous design and product techniques ensures a high-year, long term performance for every panel produce which they back with a 25 year guarantee.

Getting the maximum earnings in months with less intense sunlight, on cloudy days or even in the early morning and evening hours, requires an inverter that must be able to quickly and precisely react to the smallest weather changes and also be able to operate efficiently, reliably and uninterrupted. The SMA inverter that come with the 3000W grid-tie kit can be installed both inside and outdoors.

**Freight Shipping (Freight Delivery is Dock to Commercial Dock)

solar kits

Item that are too large or heavy to ship UPS are shipped by ground freight. In circumstances where we offer shipping, that means dock to commercial dock (not residential) to any of the lower 48 states. If the customer does not specify a local commercial dock that is available, we will ship to the nearest terminal where the shipment will be held for will call pick up by the customer. If you choose to have your order shipped to your residence, most orders require special handling for unloading and the pallet has to be transferred to a truck with a lift gate. In most cases, truck freight companies do NOT require their drivers to unload shipments. An additional "Residential" as well as a "Lift Gate" special handling fee will apply if the driver unloads the merchandise to the curb at your residence. If you have selected this add on service, the shipping carrier will call and schedule delivery of your solar kit, (provided the weight and dimensions of the product fits the criteria for lift gate service). You can avoid the residential and lift gate fees by arranging a "Will Call" pickup at the closest freight company terminal. In that case, you will need a pickup truck, a copy of the bill of laden, and a photo ID. When you arrive at the freight company terminal, the freight company will load your order into the bed of the truck with their forklift. The most common pallet size = 72" X 44" (Height depends on Product). Be sure and check for hidden damage.

NOTE, IMPORTANT INSTALLATION: (OK, here is the scary legal disclaimer.) It is the responsibility of the purchaser to ensure that all products are installed and operated in accordance with local and national building codes as specific by the NEC (National Electric Code), UBC (Uniform Building Code) or IBC (International Building Code) and local utility company policy. These codes may vary from city to city and county to county. All Grid-tied solar installations should be permitted and inspected, where required, by the local inspection authority in the same manner as other equivalent electrical systems. One last thing. It is always a good idea to contract with a local licensed electrician to at least do the final electrical connection of your 3000W Grid Tied Solar Kit from the AC disconnect to your home utility breaker box. Some local permitting authorities require that a licensed electrician do all the wiring from the rack to the utility interconnect. If you need help with the permitting documents for your solar kit, we are here for you. Our solar permit service add on is available at checkout.
