We installed a 4 kilowatt off grid solar power system on our timber frame cabin. I made a 15 minute video covering the complete install along with some commentary.
The video includes:
- Installing ground rods
- Wiring main circuit breaker
- Wiring the inverter, charge controller and combiner
- Making battery cables and wiring battery bank - Installing racking system on a standing seam metal roof
- Installing solar panels
Researching for this project I found information on each topic separately but I thought it would be nice to have concise summary of the entire process. So...
Worth watching simply for your cable connector crimper idea, and to show that lead acid batteries are still a good option.
As someone who's planning to expand a 1.4KW system to 6KW it was very helpful.
Thank you so much.
Very nice system. Should produce many years of service. I agree that lead acid batteries are still a viable option for stationary systems.
I sure was impressed how fast those folks could work. Be nice to those batteries.
