Using the Magnum MS4448PAE Inverter/Charger
The Magnum MS4448PAE can be used to create a backup for your solar power system. It is designed to care for the most demanding renewable energy applications, which makes it the perfect power solution for those that live in remote areas.
The sun is not always present, and that is why it is important that a backup power source be in place. This inverter/charger allows you to have power when you need it the most. Plus, it is possible to combine up to four units to make a total of 17.6 kW of power at 120/240 VAC. There is no need to stack combined units, as they can be placed parallel to one another.
How Much Solar Power Do I Need?
Applications contain a specific amount of wattage. In order to figure out the amount of solar power that you would need to run your home, you will first have to determine wattage-hours, which will depend on the length of time applications will demand power. For example, if you want to power a 100 watt light bulb for 24 hours straight, then it would require 2400 watt-hours.
Statistics show that the average American home requires 30,000 watt-hours each day. However, the number of watts required is ever changing, as you power appliances on and off. When an electrician wires your home, they will determine the size of your electric panel according to the worst case scenario of how many applications would be running at any given time. When deciding on your solar system, you need to determine if it will back up a few loads when the power goes out, or become the main source of power for your home.
Installing Solar Power In My Home
A solar system can become a complexed thing when wanting to use it to power your whole house. However, many individuals still choose to install their own renewable power source.
