Optional Deep Cycle Battery Choices; Trojan / UPG / Rolls

stand alone kits

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. 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.

**Freight Shipping is Dock to Dock

inverters

In circumstances where we have to ship by freight, free or otherwise, 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. The special handling fee is $89.00 and is available at checkout. 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 = 65" X 44" (Height depends on Product). Be sure and check for hidden damage.

3675 watt off-grid kit diy energy systems stand alone do-it-yourself home cabin ac solar panel kits

Outback FlexPower One FP1-1 Power Center is solid-state electronic device that, when sized properly, can be used in nearly every solar and wind energy system that uses batteries. The Power Centers Blue Pacific Solar sells employ the latest in power electronics to regulate the battery charge by controlling the charging voltage and current from a solar panel array. Power Centers regulate the charge of the battery, but also prevent the battery from being over discharged which can damage the battery bank.

Off-grid or grid tied with battery backup, here is how the OutBack FlexPower System basically works. For a grid tied battery backup, grid power comes into the power center. If the backup batteries are fully charged, the power is then passed to the critical load or backup load subpanel inside the home. The FlexPower system is monitoring the sine wave of the grid, amps and volts. When the system detects changes outside the default parameters, it immediately begins to draw power from the backup battery system and pushes it to the critical load subpanel.

Outback FlexPower One FP1-1 Power Center uses multiple stages of control to regulate different voltage and current levels. The voltage and current of a battery varies over the different stages of battery charge. Though the amount can vary, the bulk charge usually is approximately 80%, the absorption charge is 10% with the float charge representing the balance of the battery charging process.

Each outback FlexPower FP1-1 power center comes pre-wired with inverter, charge controller all mounted on a rack ready to power up. You simply have to finish connecting into your battery bank and wire to your breaker box or subpanel. Simple, easy, fast.

NOTE, IMPORTANT 3675 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 3675 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 3675 Watt Off Grid Solar Kit package, we are here for you. Solar permit service add on is available at checkout.
