Electrical Controllers and Inverter: The electricity generated by O’Neal Energy Slasher Review the panels will need to be controlled and fed to your battery storage. Your wiring to the solar charge controller needs to match the size of your panel array.
The next is an over-current protection system to protect not only you, but each major component of the system (solar panels, solar charge controller, batteries, and inverter). Your inverter converts your DC power from the solar panel to more usable AC Power. The size (wattage) of an inverter must be large enough to handle the total amount of watts you will be using at one time.
Without deep cycle batteries, you can only use power at the time you produce it, that is, when the sun shines. Solar batteries should be deep cycle batteries, they provide energy storage for solar, wind and other renewable energy systems. These batteries are different from a car battery and are capable of surviving the prolonged, repeated and deep discharges which are typical of renewable energy systems. Batteries are measured in amp hours of storage capacity, and you will need to match the number of batteries to your needs.
