Have nice set of Telecom Batteries--Now what?
Hi y'all! I'm a newbie to the whole solar thing, but, I am a Telecom equipment installer and have recently acquired 20 x 12v (which were wired into 5 strings of 4 batteries) Northstar 170ah batteries and an Eltek/Valere Compact DC Power System (Rectifier). All of the batteries were in working condition when I decommed them and installed new ones in their place, the Eltek/Valere is NIB. What do I have here when it comes to powering my home and what else would I need to do that. Also, I have continual access to used, but in very good condition telecom batteries, so I can have virtually as many strings as needed to run my entire house. Are these good batteries for this type of application? I know I need more stuff I just need to know what kind of stuff and how much.
