8 Solar Panel Back Up System

This is an 8 panel 235 watt each panel off grid system, set up for a 48 volt battery system. The maximum voltage for the panel’s is 150 volt controller voltage. The system also has a propane back up 8 KW generator and 2 each 3,000 watt inverters for power distribution. this system is covered with 1/2 inch hardware cloth to protect from hail damage or other damage too.The system is mounted on top of a van box for easy relocation and security set up.

We are going to add several more panels to the system at a later date. If interested in a system similar to this or any other system please contact me. Thank You, Calvin Allen
