Currently ongoing installation of an upto 1500W Solar system..
Technically not "another" but 1st on this forum, but part of many other commercial and home installations and setups already done..
this was at the home, very high quality components , and extra expenses were bourne for long life of setup..
planning done was to get durable and quality infrastructure at start, and leave provision for future upgradeability so more power can be added at anytime by just screwing the new panels.
EPSolar Charge controller at 60 amps, and 6x solar panels.. very thick grade iron angle was used for making the frames to last the life of panels with quoted life of upto 20-25 years..metal thickness increased for durabilty , fixed with hot dipping nuts and bolts to prevent corrosion.. galvanized bolts were used elsewhere..tin coated pure copper thimbles all the way..pure copper 25mm super flexible wire (the most expensive and the best quality thing bought in all this ), PVC piped and pack taped all the way. internally connected to an APC ups with a voltage sensitive shift device to shift to wapda at night.. 35mm copper wiring between battery and ups for power draw..
the future upgrade plans include our own import of large capacity Sacred sun dry batteries to replace the current ones..and 4 more panels to power fridge and freezers as well as using the ocassional istri and washing machines and room cooler.
Planning took 3-44 days alone to requirements of users..frmaes making took longer than expected due to loadshedding and other works..installation took 2 days of fitting and wiring..
DUE TO $#%$#&^#$&% limits of forum to not post mmore pics in in post, which doesnot even make sense since all these are external links..splitting the pics in 2 posts.. DAMN FORUM &%#&%$#5
