Solar Kits and Do-It-Yourself Components

If you are a Do-It-Yourself 'er, please, don’t try going it all on your own without guidance. We have installed well over 100 systems to date, and we do not want you do to make costly mistakes as some have done.  All our kits are designed around your specific needs and desires:

We have all of the latest components, and we stay up to date with the newest offerings from the best manufacturers. Whether you want a small starter/experimenter's system, whether it is for an off grid situation or will be grid tied by a licensed electrician, we can configure components that are appropriate and specifically for you.

Your electronics will come pre-mounted on a sturdy plywood systems board. All components will be correctly pre-wired, ready for attachment to your battery bank and solar array. Our experienced designers and installers will work together to configure and pre-test your system, guaranteeing no DOA purchases. We also give you free tech support for as long as you own your system.

If you are a D.I.Y. person, handy with hand tools and adept at following instructions, you can choose individual components to construct a solar PV system or up-grade an existing installation.  See our item listings here.

A Typical System Consists of the Following Components
solar PV kit

  Solar modules produce DC voltage and all the wiring from the modules goes to a Combiner box.  The combiner box has DC Breakers that protect the modules and combines all the wiring down to two wires Positive and Negative these two wires then go to the   Charge Controller  that controls the current so that the battery bank does not get over charged. The charge controller is wired to the  DC Disconnect which provides circuit isolation with DC and AC Breakers.  The DC disconnect then passes the current to that Battery bank which produces DC voltage @ 12 volts or 24 Volts, or 48 Volts depending on the system type. This current goes back to the DC Disconnect and then passes to the Inverter/Charger were the voltage gets changed from DC to AC and the AC voltage then goes to your home's main circuit panel. Battery monitor is also wired through the  DC Disconnect then on to the battery bank and displays the current battery bank voltage, the amperage be used or produced, and the percent of amp hours used. The solar panel is installed on either a pole mount or  roof mount.
