Huge thanks to this forum once again , My 2nd home installation is complete
When I came to this forum for help 4 years ago with very basic knowledge after ordering the Panels , bill (@BB) and many others helped me over the years to learn a lot.
First system was on my old house which was a PWM 48v, 2000KW sort of off-grid but failed due to my laziness and non monitoring and some basic flaws in the system design most of which is because I bought most of the stuff before coming here or seek any expert advice.
This year I said to myself I will listen to the guys here as much as possible and do it better than last time. I only use a fraction of what the equipment is designed to handle .i.e battery /inverter wont be used for more than 30-40% at max.
This time i went with a hybrid grid exporting setup 2250 watt panels, 150 AH Battery x 4 , a Chinese inverter which is sold by Indian company with support ( FlinEnergy ) 4KW, it has a MPPT charge controller built in .
I started using this almost 2months ago but could not export to grid due to various issues , I fixed grounding then I asked the grid company to fix the voltage (which was over 256 and my inverter wont export in that case due to regulations) and finally I seem to be exporting around 6-7KWH per day apart from what I use in day time which is minimal.
I waited for the exports to happen before I come back and post the setup pictures.
At peak sun I see about 2.1 KW generated and in cloudy times about 1KW.
Please comment if you notice any issues on my setup
I do have some serious grounding questions but I will make a new thread about that.
Thank you all again (more so for BB the man) , Hopefully this time I monitor and keep this running for a long long time. If there is a checklist to monitor monthly or weekly please do so I can have someone go through it without fail!.
