Client Goal: Dell had a unique piece of mountain property. This property was as wild as it gets without driveway access, let alone water or power. He wanted a small off grid system that could provide power to his RV and eventually his home once it was built. Although the electrical requirements were minimal, a quality system needed to be put in place to ensure he had reliable electricity. This wasn’t the type of place you could just swing by for a quick service call so our system needed to be easy for our customer to use and reliable in every way.
Design Considerations: During construction, we hit rocks that wouldn’t budge, so finding a place we could dig deep enough for the mount and trench was a challenge. Our customer made a custom power shed to house the batteries, inverter and other system components.
Final Outcome: Perched on the side of a mountain shines a 1.2KW solar array next to a beautiful custom made shed housing a Magnum Energy 4400 watt inverter and large battery bank. This system has been powering our client’s home for many years now with absolute reliability.
High performance grid tied with battery backup solar electric system.
