207kWh System... In 12V??? 😬

Maybe I am a bit jealous of the MT pole mounts and the REC Alphas, with that budget id have twice as many.
 

Holy cow, where do we start...

$149,000 of batteries... are they unaware of other options on the market today? 12V batteries in series? Yikes...
Definitely not what I would use for batteries.
You would think someone in the industry would know better.

My biggest question is what does “ Surfer dude” do for a living to afford all that?

I saw this video some days ago and dropped a comment. Dude was saying he did great for his client.

I'm surprised, based on location, that the batteries and solar are sufficient for winter weather conditions.
There not, they have back up diesel generator tied in for back up.
If someone knows the location - what does PVWatts show per kW of PV for this area?

I missed that in the video; the wife kept asking many questions about the installation.
If they do not have a wood/pellet stove, I would believe they use quite a bit of diesel.
