    Solar/Inverter Wiring

    If you want a full engineered drawing with calcs let me know.... 24v with MPPT is really going to be much more efficient than 12v

    Solar/Inverter Wiring

    Be aware that controller will not allow you to run 24v of panels in series with a 12v system, nor will it allow you to reap more then 30amp (400w/12v-33amps)

    Solar/Inverter Wiring

    I'm using four 120w 12v panels with two series strings in parallel to give me 24v to the controller (Victron 75/50 mppt controller) via 4ga copper feeds. Im pretty happy with it... Inverter is a xantrex prosine 1800w via 4/0 cables. I may just add two more 120w panels to just take up the real estate on the roof that is left, but it will be pretty much plug-n-play whether it just leave it at two strings with 36v, or just do a third string @ 24v. I think ramping up the voltage from the panels is much more efficient then staying at 12v to the controller. I do have a brand new morningstar 25a sunsaver duo if anyone is interested.

    How about a rider roundup trip?

    You guys make the call - It really doesn't matter to me. The only input I could ask for is a spot that isn't too soft (or Ill just wait a few hours for someone to unstuck me)

    How about a rider roundup trip?

    What do I need to make this happen..... I haven't had the time to do the Nevada registration - Could I just get a California non-resident and be good for the weekend? As far as the pass getting in, is there still a kiosk at the entrance road, or do I need to get one before heading out?

    Sounds good to me!
