9180 watts of PV is being installed. It will be in the form of 6 trackers with 6 - 255 watt panels mounted. The trackers are East/West tracking but are custom made by myself. They will not accomplish the East/West movement by rotation but by "tipping" from side to side much like polar sat tracking. The main grid tie inverter is a Sunnyboy 8000US with a Schneider Electric XW6048 Inverter/Charger for backup and off-grid operation. 16 Trojan T105's with 4 additional Power Battery gel/AGM added in parallel for a total of 32 KWH capacity. System is currently in development but expected to be completed by Spring.
System certified on 6/18/2014
As of 7/30/2014, last day we had a net use of power from the grid was 6/12/2014.
First three trackers active. Peak output so far, 4482W with a cloud edge. Best day was Sat at 36.5KWH. Now, three more to go...
All six trackers now active. Had a "cloud" pop that would have taken in 11 KW if the inverter could have handled it!! Best day at 50% production was 48KWH. Based on
that, I would expect my best day going forward to be reaching for 100KWH. Will not occur in Summer, too warm. Probably will happen in MArch aor April on a cold clear PSD. WIll post updated monthly
electric bill grapth soon.
