Customer’s Off-Grid System

Gus Gomez is a retired university professor who spends several days out of the month at his remote, off-grid cabin in Moses Lake, Washington.  To power this stand-alone home, Gus Gomez recently purchased and installed an off-grid solar system from “GoGreenSolar delivers sales and technical support and advice when needed.  I highly recommend GoGreenSolar for anyone’s solar system needs. The equipment is high quality and the technical support could not be better.”  – Professor Gus Gomez Distant from the basic amenities of city life, Gus had to transform this isolated cabin into a livable home.  Located on a 40-acre plot of farm land, this 550 square-foot cabin now has its own off-grid power, septic system, and water well, all of which are “in place free of monthly charges,” according to Gomez. “The climate in Eastern Washington provides an excellent opportunity for households and businesses to install solar systems for their electrical needs … It’s warm during summer with an average maximum temperature of 88.20 degrees Fahrenheit, while the coldest month of the year is January with an average minimum temperature of 21.70 degrees Fahrenheit.” Gus had an off-grid PV system installed to power the cabin.  Because Lake Moses frequently experiences powerful winds, Gus had the 3-module array mounted to a cylindrical pole mount instead of installing a racking solution on the roof. After drilling a ten-foot hole in the ground, they secured the twenty-foot-long steel cylinder with concrete.   At the top of the pole, three REC 235 Watt solar panels are secured with a DPW Power Fab Top of Pole Mount racking solution. This off-grid system uses eight MK 8G8DLTP Sealed Gel Batteries and a Xantrex Charge Controller. “The gel batteries are maintenance-free so we do not have to worry about them,” Professor Gomez. The couple uses the Magnum Battery Monitor Kit to view the percentage state of charge, real time amps, voltage, amp-hours in/out, and the minimum/maximum DC volts. This information is accessed through the Magnum Energy ME-ARC50 Remote Control, which acts as a command center for his system. Using the Magnum Energy ME-ARC50 Remote Control like a “fuel gauge” meter, the couple tracks the performance of their system and manages their personal kWh usage. Gus keeps his Magnum Energy Remote Control inside the cabin to check the battery level 100 feet away from the actual battery bank. The 3-panel array outside the “pump/electrical outhouse” From inside the cabin, they can also activate the MAGNUM 4400 Watt Pure Sine Wave Inverter inside the outhouse. “The system is trouble-free and easy to understand … the small monitor (Magnum Energy ME-ARC50 Remote Control) installed inside the cabin provides...
