SOLAR KIT & DIY PACKAGE INFO
The 3,000 watt Victron system from White Mountains Solar is designed for couples, RVs, small homes or people who need power but only to run lights, tv, refrigerator, furnace blowers, and even small air conditioners. This kit comes with everything needed for the solar but also the AC side with panels, breakers, and plugs. It can even come with a 30 amp RV plug so if you have an RV all you have to do is plug it in and the RV will run just like it would in an RV park.
The Solar System breaks down into several components and with great warranties. You have the Victron Multiplus Inverter/Charger. The Victron 150/60 “smart” charge controller. Two 12 volt 224 amp hour GEL Batteries and 6 280+ watt panels for a total of 1,680 watts of solar power. The Victron Multiplus Inverter/Charger can run at 3,000 watts AC power continuously and surge to over 6,000 watts when needed. It has a 5-year warranty and the headquarters is in the Netherlands and not in China as a lot of the cheaper products out there. This Inverter/Charger is very reliable and easily upgradeable so it can be compatible with all batteries in the future. It is also a charger which means it can be connected to an AC source like a small generator. Once connected to a generator you can make sure you will always have power even on super cloudy days. If there isn’t enough sun to charge the batteries all you have to do is turn on the generator or use the auto generator start feature and inverter will immediately switch to charging the batteries. You then only have to run the generator for a few hours until you get the batteries fully recharged and can run for many more hours without the sun or the generator running. This makes the generator a backup to the power and not the main source so it can last a long time not having to be used.
The Victron 150/60 charge controller is used to harness all the power from the solar panels and make sure the power is correctly given to your batteries to keep them charged or run your loads during the day. It is also a smart controller meaning it runs on Bluetooth on a smartphone as air pods or headsets do. This way you don’t have to be in the same room as the charge controller to see your solar status or battery status. You just open the Victron Connect App and click on your charge controller and the information will be there immediately. This charge controller is also an MPPT charge controller meaning it is the newest technology and 30% more efficient than the more common PWM charge controller.
The two 12 volts 224 amp-hour GEL batteries give you up to 5,376-watt hours of total storage. This means that if you had a TV on with a DVD player at night and an LED light you would be using around 300 watts an hour. That means you could run off the battery for up to 17 hours before it would be fully dead. You can also add more batteries to double your storage capacity. This can be a great thing to do so on those few cloudy days a year we have you may not have to run your generator at all.
The 280+ watt solar panels are brand new and the latest technology. They come with a 15-year warranty on workmanship and a 25-year warranty on performance. That means these panels will last 40 years or more and give you a ton of power in that time. Plus, you can always add more panels to this system to have extra power when needed.
This system also comes with all the solar wiring needed, battery wire needed, solar breakers needed, battery breakers, a full AC panel with breakers and even the AC wire needed. Plus, we build a program and operate the system for you here at the office. This way all you have to do is take home and put a few wires back together and you will have quiet, free solar energy to run your small house, RV or cabin.
We can also give you a quote on installing and or adding on to the system. The great thing about this Victron system is that you can always add more inverters, charge controllers, batteries or panels. You won’t be stuck with a system that can’t be upgraded as you needs change.
