Re: Can I Use Solar for 220 volt AC Well Pump?
I moved this to your own thread so you can lead the discussion along the lines you need--and not confuse with the original poster (if they ever return).
Are you somewhere around Bangor Maine? Would like to look up how much sun you have in your region.
You are not using a lot of grid power. 1,000 kWH per month is considered "average".
At this point, it would be helpful to know how much water (Gallons per day, depth of well, etc.) to figure out if you are pumping "efficiently".
Just a warning--typically full off grid solar costs around $1-$2 per kWH hour--or 5-10x the cost of grid power. So spending money on conservation can be a big help.
What do you do for heating (electric, heat pump, natural gas, wood, etc.)?
20x BP 4175B panels (replacement) + Xantrex GT 3.3 inverter for 3kW Grid Tied system + Honda eu2000i Inverter/Generator for emergency backup.
