You can add more batteries and panels without having to upgrade the controller or grid charger. This kit is a great system to learn and develop your solar skills, and you can add to it a little at a time until you have the solar energy system you desire. You may also qualify for tax credits on this purchase. We have assembled this exclusive kit with some of the highest quality components available.

*Typical realistic operation based on one device run at a time; discharging battery bank to 50% capacity; assuming 60% efficiency of solar panels and solar input of 960 watts per day; average sunlight for 4 hours per day for 4 days per week, and full battery bank recharging for approximately 8 hours when it reaches 50% capacity. Unlimited operation of devices could not consume over 90 watts per hour for this package to operate continuously without using included AC Grid Charger and Maintainer. **Intermittent operation can provide substantially longer run times.
What it will not run:
Solar energy systems can be built large enough to power high energy devices such as electric stoves, electric hot water heaters, deep well pumps, electric clothes dryers, and electric heating and cooling systems; however, it is not the most efficient use of solar energy, and it can be very expensive. Many of these high energy use appliances were invented and sold by power companies in the early days to help them sell more electricity. We feel that going totally off the grid is not practical or cost effective as long as these high energy use appliances continue to be used in our homes and businesses. Our “Just Enough” solar energy DIY Kits are designed to efficiently power the devices you need when the power goes off and be easy for you to upgrade. Most modern electronic and computer-controlled devices and rechargeable lithium batteries are perfect for our solar energy DIY kits. Use free solar energy to power the things it powers best. When you need to power high energy devices and appliances, there are more efficient products and less expensive methods for running them, and we are working to source and supply the best of these products and methods, too, as they come to market.
