  • Green new deal!

  • Seems MPP dropped a new inverter...a split phase 10KW

    I don't see it priced yet on their page. I was looking for a decent AIO unite to power a few deep freezes before investing in outback or Schneider latter. https://www.mppsolar.com/v3/lvx12kwwp/
  • Has anybody used the Rosie inverter yet for prime time?

    I see it's been released for sale..as in out of beta. Just curious if anybody is using it yet? I'm curious how it would compare in real life to a xwpro. I'm not seeing it as stackable unless I'm over looking it. From recollection of the xwpro specs ..rosie doesn't surge as long as high. The idle...

  • 10kw new mpp split phase inverters.

    Just a fyi, I decided to write a email to mpp to see if they ever had plans on offering higher wattage inverters for the us market. This was their reply from somebody name Peggy. Thanks for your question MPP Solar does have a new Split phase hybrid solar inverter 10kw , which is currently...

  • Hail damage in Texas.

    I thought panels were more resilient? I'm about to start looking at panels and live around Texas / Oklahoma border so I want good panels that have decent hail resistance. Any brands or special certifications to look for on panels for this?
  • Aims high voltage hybrid inverter.

    Saw this on mikes channel today. Seems like vendors are catching onto the high voltage movement. Just wanted to share. Battery Voltage Range(V) 80- 495 https://www.aimscorp.net/product/hybrid-inverter-charger-9-6-kw-power-output-15-kw-solar-input/
  • All in one vs separate components for critical loads?

    Greetings, Just joined and first post. I've been looking into solar now for a few months and watching will and others on youtube ...got me here. I don't have anything yet so this would be a fresh start. My objective is the following: We're trying to move out more rural shortly and the way the...
  • High voltage DC inverters?

    I found a few guys on youtube using High voltage / Low frequency inverters and after reviewing their motives I agree it seems like a much better option in efficiency and durability. Seems like it's less wiring in general and smaller wires due to less current. It would reduce heat in the...
  • What's the reason behind using 240V inverters with transformers when they have split phase ones?

    I've been seeing this on youtube with david poz and others and am wondering why this is so alluring? Why buy a bunch of 240V only inverters then have to wire in a transformer to provide the neutral when you can buy inverters already putting out split phase power and just parallel them and...
  • Toroidal mpp / eg4 inverters

    I saw the video Will just did for the new EG4 split phase....the idle usage is unacceptable by a long shot. Why do the mpp and growatt style inverters idle so high with and without a transformer? He mentioned toroidal transformers and from research Schneider, Victron, Outback ...etc use this...
  • AC/DC coupled, grid tie, hybrid etc?

    I'm just starting off in the solar tech and have some questions; perhaps they are documented elsewhere here? I'd appreciate some guidance on this path of seeking context and clarity. 1. Grid tie. I've seen articles that seem to suggest this means only if the inverter is tied into the grid to...
  • Lithium battery and ambient temps.

    Google says the Lithium batteries shouldn't see over 70F/ish ambient temps. What are you suppose to do if you live in Texas or similar where the summer gets 105F. Do any of you have the batteries in the garage or shed that isn't air conditioned? I wanted to get a couple to run a small inverter...
  • Is AC coupled even worth it?

    I've been looking at the xwpro and radian systems which would be paired with a charge controller DC coupled...A traditional system. But, I ran across a article about AC coupling which from the way it read is where you have a string inverter that coverts PV DC to AC and then Injects that AC into...
  • Anybody here using the outback gs8048a

    I've been leaning towards the xwpro but forgot you have to have a external connector switch if using more than two inverters...and there's a chance you might exceed the 60A internal relay due to potential relay times between the two inverters. Does outback also have this requirement? I'm...
  • RFK speech at the Bitcoin conference.

  • magnum inverters any good?

    Greetings, I'm narrowing my options down for my solar system. So far it seems like conext 6848 and the outback radian 8048 are solid choices. However I ran across a few videos and other information about these magnum inverters. Specifically this one which is what I'd use.. "MS4448PAE". Thought...
  • PDP for mpp / growatt etc.

    For those of you using power distribution panels with all the breakers and spd's like the midnight e panels or conext pdp panels what are you using for the mpp or growatt style which don't have specific panels yet? I'd like to make my setup compliant with UL standards. Also, another question how...
  • Deye EU inverter US supplier?

    I've been looking at the Deye products; based on research and some threads here it seems like people are saying their Deye inverters are much better quality than their mpp or growatts. I've never physically looked at one but they appear to be much better quality..can folks that own them chime in...
  • Lithium prices dropping.

    Maybe batteries will become cheaper soon? https://wolfstreet.com/2023/04/29/remember-the-lithium-shortage-huge-price-spike-in-4-months-since-then-lithium-collapsed-70-amid-talk-of-lithium-glut/
  • Outback Mojave inverters.

    Looks like outback tried to shove the 8048 into a new housing with a built in pdp and wifi. Looks like a potential competitor to the solark. What i don't like is they actually lost surge capacity compared to the old inverters. Should be much easier to install with the pdp built in. Anybody have...
  • Schneider PDP panels

    First, why is a sheet metal box with some bus bars and breakers so dam expensive? Second, are they even worth it if there's a cheaper, safe way that can pass inspection if needed? If I recollect correctly there's a user here that didn't use the PDP and passed inspection. I plan on starting with...
