Emergency Solar Power
The beginnings of an emergency solar backup system. This one will consist of two solar panels, one charge controller, one 110ah 12 Volt AGM battery, a Trimetric system monitor and a 1000 watt pure sine wave inverter. I will be expanding it to 4 panels and 4 batteries in the near future. It will run some lights, fans and electronics for longer periods plus high draw items like a microwave or power tools for real short periods. This will be in addition to a gas generator which will mainly be used to quickly charge the solar battery bank if needed.
