  2. Hey Robert how is your system doing? any updates?

  3. Very nice! The 12KW battery capacity should allow you to go throughout the
    night on a full charge if I am not mistaken. What’s the production capacity
    of your solar panels?

  4. The batteries dont leak as I keep them all clean. infact they never have
    over flowed or corroded. They are vented just from all the holes in the
    cabinet, actually there is over 3inch of air vents top to bottom. I dont
    run a fan at this time since they are never under load. This system is
    daylight use only and batteries are topped off each morning.

  5. Ive looked into those in the past and Im well aware of the good quality.
    Pricey but we might do consider them again. Have to set some space aside
    for them.

  7. Hey looking for a cabinet for my batteries but needs to be outside. Do you
    think that cabinet would work outside?

  8. great video , how do you connect both inverters in parallel ?

  9. No. They are not weather proof from rain, its effects or dust.

  11. Im not running them to 500 amps. I have 500 amps capacity. They are only
    for backup when power goes out which is maybe once every 6mo for about
    6hrs. I have run during my own test of grid down. With sun and battery I
    can run all of the home with 1of my 2 ac units for all hours while sun is
    out.

  13. what are the specs of your battery ? and what is the cycle life you have ?

    By Mohamad Khalil Hamieh on Feb 6, 2015

  14. Well done system… congrats..

  15. You are raring your batteries at 500 amps ? This makes no sense . You need
    to have 2 volt mono block batteries and they should never be in a steel and
    aluminum container. It will corrode and make a mess. Plus there needs to be
    venting

  16. Very nice system.

  17. you may want to get some fans on those charge controllers if they reach
    115F they auto derate by up to 1000w depending on temp. my system is the
    same as yours but twice as big(4 SCC) I was loosing 4000w due to heat
    derate. Just found this out and put some small fans in front of the
    controllers, temp went from 130f to 104f within minutes. Got 2000w back for
    the price of two wallyworld fans for 10 dollars each.Put the fans on a
    timer to come on in the morning and off two hours before sunset.

  18. if you are concerned about a battery fire put a smoke detector inside the
    top of the cabinet.
