5.99 kW SolarWorld Grid-Tied with Battery Backup System
This battery-based PV system combines the benefits of grid-tied solar along with the independence and peace-of-mind found living off-grid. During normal operation, excess energy produced by the 21 SolarWorld 285 watt panels is sent into the grid to reduce your energy costs. In the event of a power outage, the battery-based inverter will turn on automatically to power essential appliances including lights, refrigerator, well pump, cell phone chargers, computers and more. This design combines the best of both worlds, reducing your power bill and providing backup power in an emergency.
Enjoy Uninterrupted Power with Solar Plus Energy Storage
The heart of this system utilizes cutting edge technology from OutBack Power. OutBack Powers GS8048A Radian inverter/charger and FM80 charge controller comprise the power center, harnessing energy from your solar array and providing seamless battery backup power. The Radian inverter automatically senses a power outage and energizes your essential appliances in under a second, providing 8,000 watts of continuous output, enough power for large loads such as a typical household 240Vac well pump.
