This is a 12 V system that requires much thicker cables than 24v, 48 V or 60V systems. But on the other hand it is very simple to establish by anyone wanting to mount their own power plant.
Everything was done by one person only, including the base for the tracker and the mount for the tracker itself.
5 x BP 275 (75 Watt) = 375 Watt/h max.
1 Tracker Lorentz Etatrack 400 (discontinued)(replaced by 600 model now)
1 Solar Regulator BlueSky 3024Di (upgradable to Duo Mode)
14 x Marathon M12V60FT (60 Amps) totalling 840 Amps/h
1 Inverter pure sine wave Studer SI 1212 with optional “twinpower”
Upgradable to a three phase power line if necessary in the future by adding another 2 identical modules.
One external generator for more power when required by the use of heavy machinery like welders or other loads like those.
Total costs: Street Prices 2009 in euros.
5 x panels = 1500
1 x Tracker = 500
1 x Regulator= 550
14 x Bateries= 5600
1 x Inverter = 1300
Tracker Base = 300
Cabin = 200
Total= 10 450 euros without labor (made it my self)
Good luck for anybody wanting to do the same.
