I have bought and am installing some solar panels with a charge controller. I also am doing an install of some Nichole iron batteries with a charge controller and a 48 volt pure sine inverter 110/220. My system is a 12 volt system with 4 solar panels 305 watt each. I have a 12 volt inverter so I will keep mine at 12 volts for now and plan to upgrade to 24 volt soon. I also have all parts available for sale, with shipping available too. I will get pics of the installs as I get them completed this Spring. I have just finished a back up system that can also be used as an off grid system, if the grid stays down for a extended period of time. This system is only using a propane generator with heavy duty lead acid batteries, and a pure sign inverter with a manual transfer switch.
