magnum 1410W solar

1410 watts of off-grid solar is built around the Sharp ND-235QCJ 235 Watt Mono Solar Panel. This powerful American built solar panel is one of Sharp's newest solar modules. Built in America to extremely tight tolerances, Sharp solar modules routinely earn their reputation as one of the top choices for grid-tied and off-grid solar kits. Sharp has recently moved to "plus sorting", which means that every module tests to "equal to or greater than" its rated wattage. This superior approach allows complete control over every step of the process, producing modules with the industry’s tightest power tolerance and efficiency. System Power = 1410 Watts (STC) / 7,050 Watts Per Day (Based on 5 sun hours (STC). Magnum Energy inverters are affordable, high-performance modified and pure sine wave inverters and are considered the best on-the-market for off-grid solar. The Mini-Magnum MS4448PAE Power Center has sophisticated protection circuitry, making Magnum inverters immune from damage by overloads, short circuits, over-temperature and input polarity reversal. OutBack Controller is a three-function controller that provides reliable solar battery charging. Midnite Solar Circuit Breaker Box Complete with Breakers. Optional IronRidge Top of Pole Mount for 6 Panels (Pole Not Included) or Roof Mount Racking. IronRidge solar racks are a very sturdy, straightforward and easy to assemble.

batteries

Choose the off-grid battery option that best fits your needs. The size of the battery bank you choose depends on the amount of power you require (Watts), the amount of time each day you expect to run your appliances, equipment and lights, and your location or available sunlight (If you are adding solar or wind power). As a rule-of-thumb, when considering batteries off-grid, use 3 days of autonomy (No Sun) as a minimum and 50% depth of discharge for your battery bank.

Off-Grid System Sizing Starts With a List of Equipment

The size of an off-grid solar electric system depends on the amount of power that is required (watts), the amount of time it is used (hours) and the amount of energy available from the sun in your area (sun-hours per day). A homeowner has control of the first two variables, while the third depends on location. We know we are preaching to the choir when we say conservation plays an important role in keeping down the cost of any solar system, but it plays a much bigger role in off-grid solar. To start the off-grid design process, we recommend you make a list of your lighting, refrigeration, major and small appliances and well as estimate in each case how long you usually use each one each day (Duty Hours). (Don't forget well pump if you intend to run it off the same set of batteries). Standard freezers and refrigerators can use 3000 watt hours each day. A few better models like Maytag MTB1956 18 cu ft can be found to use under 1500 watt hours a day, and cost around $900. Refrigeration cycle time is usually a function of efficiency, but also it is a function of how full the unit is, how often it is opened, and the outside temperature. Typically we use 10 hours as the duty hours for most refrigeration calculations. To illustrate the point, the daily energy use of a R10 high efficiency SunFrost refrigerator will use 13 amp-hours (170 watts) at 70 degrees, but 23 amp-hours (280 watts) at 90 degrees.

When considering the battery capacity needed, first look to more energy efficient appliances. Then we suggest you consider battery capacity (kWh or Ah) to be a minimum of twice the average daily solar electricity generation. For longest life, sealed maintenance-free batteries (VRLA, gelled electrolyte, AGM, etc.) should not be discharged to greater than 50% of their total capacity rating within a 24 hour period.

Minimum suggested battery capacity (kWh or Ah) is the largest battery bank size that the solar array can recharge from 50% depth-of-discharge (DOD) on an average day in December. When we design an off-grid or bimodal solar system when calculating battery capacity (kWh or Ah), we assume there is no other means of recharging the battery bank other than the solar system.

Here are some average home appliance wattages to help you get started on your list:

 
Laptop 50 - 65 Watts
Cell Phone 5 Watts
Table lamp 25 Watts
Inkjet Printer 50 - 75 Watts

1410 watt off-grid solar kit diy energy systems stand alone do-it-yourself home cabin ac solar panel kits

1410 off-grid solar allows home and cabin owners and easy way to lower their expenses making this off-grid solar kit perfect for that weekend escape island. Our 1410 watt off grid solar kit are expandable to any size you need. These off-grid solar kits are simple, safe and a snap to install. Build around Sharp solar panels, the heart of the 1410 watt off-grid solar kit is the Magnum Energy MS4448PAE power center giving your 120 /240 volts of pure sine wave electricity.

Blue Pacific Solar has taken one of the hardest parts of assembling a high power solar system and has completed all the hard work in the shop prior to shipment. The power center in the 1410 watt off-grid solar kit is fully assembled and tested prior to shipment by experienced Magnum Energy factory trained technicians. Mounting the power center on a Magnum attachment plate, we only use ETL and C-ETL listed Magnum Energy power distribution enclosures. Included in the power center are; easy to connect and clearly labeled color coded buss bars for AC and DC connections; AC and DC lightning arrestors, breaker space for DIN rail or surface mount breakers for optional equipment, all built inside a white power coated Magnum Energy box with front facing controls. Home or cabin solar power has never been made easier or more affordable.

Blue Pacific Solar has provided all of the main parts you will need for your 1410 watt off-grid solar kit, but here are some additional items that your may need prior to installing your home panel system. Conduit, appropriately sized electrical wire, some fasteners and grounding rod and wire. Building and installing your own 1410W off-grid solar system is not only the smart choice for controlling your expenses, it may be on the most satisfying DIY projects you ever have undertaken.

1410W solar nec1410W building code compliance

NOTE, IMPORTANT 1410 Watt Off Grid Solar Kit 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 off-grid 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 1410 Watt Off Grid 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 1410 Watt Off Grid Solar Kit package, we are here for you. Solar permit service add on is available at checkout.
