I need a little advice on upgrading my solar PV system.
Currently, the system looks like this:
(4) 260w panels (1040w total)
Midnight Solar MPPT charge controller
2 Rolls AGM 460 AH batteries (6v)
There are some other parts, but that is the main stuff.
This is currently a DC system operating at 12v
I have 2 new batteries of the same type.
At this point, I need to make the transition from DC to AC.
In other words, I need an inverter/charger.
I would feed the "charger" part of that equation with a generator if I have a stretch of cloudy days.
I would like to be able to make 4,000 to 6,000 watts peak.
I would prefer a 240v system so that I can power both legs in a breaker panel, but I can work around that if it is a bunch more money.
I have looked at the pure sine wave invertr/chargers out there on wholesalesolar.com, etc.
Yikes. Those things are like $2,000.
What is my best option here?
