Generator kicked on
Wed night about 11:30, my backup propane generator kicked on. I went out to the solar shed and the SOC was 81%. The generator is programmed to come on when the batteries get down to 50%. After a half hour or so it turned off. I checked the batteries and they were now 80%, so it wasn't charging the system. The next day while flipping through my read outs, it said "last generator use - April 23". That's the day they tested it. Why did it come on? It has been getting down to 19-20 degrees at night. Does it come on occasionally to charge the generator battery?
12 Kyocera 235 panels, 3 Gyll LiFePO4 batteries (previously 16 Trojan L16 RE-B batteries), Outback 3600W 48V system, Generac 11K propane backup generator, NW AZ, off grid, 6,000 ft (system installed in April 2015)
