Re: beginner needs help with start-up
Before you do anything, I suggest you get a really good handle on your expected loads. All other choices come from knowing your loads. I suggest getting a Kill-a-watt meter (~$20) to log your current loads, and extrapolate your future loads.
Please note, being a moderator does not add any weight to my opinions 300 watts Siemens/BP panels,plus a Sun 90,, making ~400. ~30 amps into Rogue MPT-3024, 450 ah of Trojan T-105, Morningstar ts300 inverter, a Tri-Metric meter.a collection of antique generators, plus 2 Honda eu-1000i's (also a BS2512 IX controller) and assorted other stuff!
