SYSTEM DETAILS: Redesign and installation of an off-grid solar PV system

PROJECT NOTES: Although Solar Cascade did not initially install this system, we were called in to redesign and repair a poorly working off-grid system. Our engineers designed and installed a larger PV array with a dual axis tracker to generate sufficient power. Then the battery bank was resized and replaced to accommodate the increased electricity production. The increased battery bank size required replacing two 24 volt inverters with two 48 volt inverters.  And, finally, an ineffective air-cooled generator was replaced with a low rpm liquid-cooled generator.
