5000 Watt Inverters x 2 One each for the East side, and the West side of the house.
These two set up's are the same and yes I know I over built it, but it is better to go big.
Solar and wind go big as you can afford even if you have to save to buy it.
There is a lot left out for wasted space.
Starting on the roof, 2/230 watt panels for topping the battery banks off.
And the start of a larger system.
Solar World Sunmodule SW230 230W Monocrystalline Solar Panels.
This is just to give you a place to check out the info on them, you can shop for the best prices on the net. I do not sell any supplies.
Now we get started
Wire coming in, is #6 AWG 20ft. times 4. I went large so I can expand.

Dump load is 2/1000 watt dummy loads. And a 3rd one if needed.
There are many different battery wiring diagrams to choose from, but I used this one here.
#4 in the figure.
Next #000 cable AGW to the inverters.
I made up 2 sets of each to lighten the amp. Load.
This is cheaper than buying the super large wire and fittings. I have a lot of cable lying around so I use it.
I used 2” conduit into the house and down to the appropriate size where needed.
Now I need batteries where to go?
For me it was an easy choice to do.
Wired in series’ laid out as 12volt and then wired up for the system. I’ve used (6
volt 400ah each) x 8 for each bank.
Battery charger and power supply as one. IOTA 55amp
Next year I will start my wind farm, I think it will be a blast to build. I know that it will never pay for itself, but a good investment for when the wind blows at night.
