Sizing DC solar system for booster pump
Looking for some help as solar calculations really confuse me!
I'm trying to setup an off-grid well house. My well pump will be powered directly from panels. Then water will get stored in a cistern, then a booster pump to pressurize water into the pressure tank. I'm trying to gather my equipment and just want to be sure everything is sized right!
Here's the plan for the second leg of the system:
I would like the set up the Aquatec 550 24vDC to pull water out of my 1275 gal. cistern and into my 86 gal. pressure tank. I am trying to size a DC solar system to power this. Can you advice me on size of PV panels and size of battery to get?
I am thinking of a 260W PV panel connected to an mppt charge controller and then 12V 200aH battery. Can anybody confirm whether this will work or not? Any advise would be greatly appreciated!
