Plug In Solar Roof Mounted System
These Panels are plug in ready and are the fastest way to step into solar requiring under thirty minutes from delivery to operation. Rather than dealing with installing a large and costly array, these panels can grow with your electrical and budget needs. Simply daisy chain your add on to your lead or other add ons (up to six total panels). As you already know with your lead unit, they are extremely easy to move with you should you ever end up in a new house or apartment.
From Panel To Power
The unit works by taking solar power produced by the panel and converts it over to power that is the same as what any of your home electronics and appliances use. Upon delivery, all you have to do is unbox it, place it facing the sun, and connect it to your lead unit. The DC power from the panel is converted to AC power by means of a preinstalled microinverter. This microinverter then outputs 240V AC power which most homes have running into them. To get this power down to what your electronics and your home outlets use, the 240V power is reduced to 120V through use of a transformer. The power is now ready to feed back into your panel, subsidizing the power being used by all of your household electronics.
Each unit produces approximately 1 kWh per day** in most areas, but this depends on the location and amount of shading. This amount of electricity is enough to offset the usage of a basic energy star refrigerator.
The roof mounted unit comes with four "Z" brackets for easy mounting to any roof. Mounting hardware is included.
The Add-On Unit is like the Lead Unit except it doesn't have a built in energy monitor. To attach your add-on unit to your lead unit all you have to do it plug the male cable from the Add-On into the Female Cable of the Lead. The cable is long enough to place panels next to each other in a south facing line. If you need more room between panels or have want to go around an obstacle, we sell 15ft lengths of cable allowing for such placements.
The Add On Unit Includes:
275 Watt Solar Panel
250 Watt microinverter
Stainless steel mounting feet
Aluminum Cross bar for hardware attachment
Grounding wire to ground from panel to panel
All equipment is UL listed

**These systems are converting power from DC to AC so that it can safely be plugged into a wall outlet. As a result, there is always a roughly 20% loss in production occurring in the conversion from DC to AC. In perfect conditions (tilt, weather, panel facing direction, etc.) expect them to produce at 80% of the 250W limit of the microinverter.
