I know I drove you folks crazy..
Originally (3 months ago) it was to be like 4 135 Kyocera panels (540 watts), Morningstar ProStar 30, and Xantrex Pro SW 2000
Well I bought 6 145w panels (870 watts), Morningstar TS-45 (PWM), and wires, breakers, & switches..
Then I debated with you folks aloud about 4 times on the MPPT vs. PWM..
Then I was fishing for input on 24v vs 12v inverters..
Then I was emailing poor Marc at Rogue with questions..
Then along comes the Midnite Solar announcement about the Lite.. Then I was comparing the TS60 MPPT to that and the Xantrex 60 MPPT and the Outback Flex 60 MPPT..
I sold the TS45 and meter yesterday, and in about 1 week I will be holding a Midnite Classic 150 (regular model)..
I asked Ryan for some pics and he sent them right over.. <<good people right there<<
I opted to go MPPT to get as much as I can year round since this will be a year round cabin for me very soon. I know in the summer I won't gain much.. but in the cooler times like fall and spring I will gain some numbers I think..
The panels will be done up like a 24v system.. 2 in series * 3 in parallel..
I will be going with a 12v 400-600ah battery bank to start with.. and my original planned Xantrex SW Prowatt 2000 inverter.. I ordered up the BlueSea 250 amp fuse and fuse mount for the battery.. and I have the 3/0 wire here..
When the inverter dies out I will upgrade to a 24v model of some flavor.. and flip a few switches and be at a 24v system..
Anyway.. thank you,,
