Portable Wind/Solar system box
I’m looking to build a small portable wind/solar system that can be easily moved to different locations, so it seems to makes sense to package most of the electronics in one box. The attached picture tries to describe the 12V off-grid system, so I wanted to see if anyone could come up with reasons not to do something like this in terms of NEC issues. This would need to be a well-ventilated NEMA 3R metal enclosure, and the battery box is located outside (of course). In terms of grounding, the wind turbine tower and solar panels would be grounded together at that location, and there would be a short (20-30 ft) SOOW cable to this box (yes, not sunlight safe but perhaps OK for short-term use?). I think I can size the conductors and components to comply with NEC, but I’d love some other opinions on the overall idea of putting this into one box. Thanks!
