    I am really struggling. Neutral and hot both are energized.

    What’s weird is I had the ground screw in yesterday and was still getting all the weird electrical problems. I removed it and still was messed up. Only now I put the ground wire between G and N and it seemed to fix the issue.

    If any of you ever make it to the Ozarks, connect with me… dinner is on me! I appreciate all your help. Seems good to go now.

    I do have a #6 grounding wire attached to a ground rod. Unfortunately, I don’t have anything else metal to attach to. No plumbing, etc. Thank you again. I’ll let you know how this goes. Also, you said a #10 wire between N and G bars?

    I’ll try. I only have 2 hands. Haha

    Tim, so I should just run a wire between the ground bar and the neutral bar( in the panel) like the prior gentleman suggested?

    Just confirmed. 65v now and NO light whatsoever. 🤔

    I am really struggling. Neutral and hot both are energized.

    Only bulb I have. In another post they said this would be good for pre-charging the inverter.

    I am really struggling. Neutral and hot both are energized.

    The lightbulb did NOT light up between neutral and ground. Showed 57v. Lightbulb did light up between hot/neutral. 120v.

    I am really struggling. Neutral and hot both are energized.

    Just to confirm… bulb between neutral and ground coming out of inverter. Also, inverter should be “on” position?

    I am really struggling. Neutral and hot both are energized.

    Would running the wire between the neutral and ground bar “fix” the problem if the problem originated from inside the inverter? Believe it or not, I’m miles ahead of where I was 3 weeks ago in regards to electricity, but obviously not an expert. Hence, the questions.

    You did offer me some useful information on here, and it is much appreciated. You all have. My 2nd meter showed the same voltages as the first.

    I am really struggling. Neutral and hot both are energized.

    Update: I disconnected the 3 wires from the circuit box. I tested those hot/neutral and hot/ground. 2 voltages. One is 57, other is 63. Therefore, it’s coming from inside the inverter. At least I know my circuit panel and wiring is good. What do I need to do for the inverter now?

    I am really struggling. Neutral and hot both are energized.

    I am nowhere near grid power. Unless I pay them to run the nearest electric 5 miles to my house through the wilderness. I don’t have over a million bucks in my bank account. 😂

    I am really struggling. Neutral and hot both are energized.

    I am completely offgrid. No grid power for miles. So, from what I’m understanding is that I should attach the ground bar to the neutral bar in the circuit box? Or is this one of those deals where I need to take apart the inverter and remove that ground neutral screw that some people have talked...

    I am really struggling. Neutral and hot both are energized.

    I just whet thru the manual again. Unless I’m overlooking it I didn’t see anything in there regarding this.

    I am really struggling. Neutral and hot both are energized.

    I’m REALLY struggling. All my outlets are telling me that I have an open ground. I checked all outlets and ground rod and everything is solid. So, I check the circuit panel and all breakers are in the off position but they are still hot. I took video and pics but I’m completely baffled. I...

    What size resistor?

    Sweet! You rock!

    What size resistor?

    Thank you to you both. One wire from battery terminal to “base” of bulb, and other wire from inverter to “brass color” part of bulb (the screw in part of bulb)? Sorry, I don’t know the nomenclature of a lightbulb 🙄

    I have this handy. Will this work? Thank you!

    What size resistor?

    Hello, Somewhere on the forums i saw the size resistor i would need to precharge my 48v 3000w Growatt. Now, I can't find it anywhere. Does anybody recall the resistor i would need so i don't have to have an unintended fireworks show in my workshop/solar shed? If not, how about the size of...

    How’s it look?

    I'm waiting on my PV connectors until the solar array is set up. I also have a ground rod outside and connected to the service panel. I have no other panel for my cabin, so i installed this one with the 3 circuits. I STILL don't know if my model creates an NG bond. For now, I left the NG...

    How’s it look?

    I’m ready to attach the batteries soon ((4) SOK batteries in series for 48v)). I wired up the panel with 3 circuits for now. Solar panels may take a few more weeks till I get them installed. Just wanting to see how long these batteries will last running my offgrid cabin until I get the 3600w...

    Neutral ground screw

    I'm almost there ! Thanks to every one of you experts on this site i'm going to start installing most of my solar setup this weekend. I do have a question about using the green bonding screw in my panel though. I am TOTALLY offgrid. I'll be setting up my Growatt 3000 48v inverter this week. I...

    Growatt 3000 48v system distribution box recommendation?

    I am in the final stages of hooking up my solar system. Hoping by this weekend. This is a completely offgrid setup. Growatt 3000 48v inverter. I have no distribution box as i am currently using only my generator to power the cabin. I'm wondering if somebody could recommend a good, cheap...
