4 Critical Steps for Starting Power to and Off Grid Solar Energy System.

Here I take you through the process of starting the {solar lights} system power.
You must follow these steps in order to avoid damage to equipment and operate the system safely.

1. Turn on the Breakers in the Combiner Box, which energizes the conduit from the solar panels to the enclosure panel.

2. Turn on the Breaker from the Battery Bank to the Charge Controller, powering up the charge controller, then selecting the correct settings.

3. Turn on the Breaker from the Combiner to the Charge Controller, this initiates the charging of the batteries from the {solar lights}.

4. Turn on the Breaker from the Enclosure panel to the Inverter, powering on the Inverter and energizing the circuit.

This is a video in my series on how to install a stand-alone battery backup solar power system.

  1. Hi. If you want to build it yourself just google for 'inplix' . I know you'll find good solutions for your idea.

  2. great to see that… I made it too. Using inplix handbooks :)
