New SunSaver MPPT solar controller with TrakStar
Technology™ is an advanced
maximum power point tracking (MPPT) battery charger for
off-grid PV systems. Now people with smaller systems can
get the benefits of MPPT charging that have only been
available to folks with larger systems. The SunSaver
MPPT is well suited for both professional and consumer
PV applications. Its charging process has been optimized
for long battery life and improved system performance,
featuring a smart tracking algorithm that maximizes the
energy harvest. This product also provides load control
to prevent over-discharge of the battery. The controller
(15 amps at 12/24 volts) enables the use of high voltage
and also thin film modules for off-grid PV battery
charging, providing a means to use up to a 36V array to
charge a 24V or 12V battery. The SunSaver MPPT is epoxy
encapsulated for environmental protection, and is fully
adjustable via on-board switches or PC connection. This
controller is less expensive than other MPPT controllers
and is affordable in smaller PV systems up to 400Wp (w/
24V input). With a peak efficiency of over 97% and
almost no power losses, smaller systems now have a way
to get maximum power!

If you are looking for a reliable, low-maintenance solar
well pump that will fit in a 3” diameter well casing or
larger, look no further that the Grundfos SQFlex line of
submersible pumps. These German engineered
stainless steel pumps come in seven different models
that cover a large range of flows and lifts. The
SQFlex motor lives up to its name by allowing operation
with DC voltages from 30 to 300. This means that
the design is flexible, and the ability to increase
water output by adding a solar module later is very
simple and cost-effective. Also, with the addition
of the IO101 controller you can have the added security
of powering the pump from a generator or grid power
source. Like all our pump systems, these can be
matched up with a Zomeworks passive single-axis or
Wattsun active dual-axis tracker to increase summer
outputs by up to 35 - 40%. If you have a well you
need to develop, or are trying to keep your cattle out
of riparian areas, go to
complete the online questionnaire today and we will work
up a proposal for you.

Batteryless Grid-tie System
Are you looking for a way to lower those ever-growing
power bills or even get rid of them? You may want
to consider a solar electric grid-tied system.
These relatively simple systems take the power that you
produce from your solar modules and use them to power
your home. If there is power left over, it will be
diverted back to your power company—effectively slowing
your meter or spinning it backwards. If you need more
power than you are producing, the power will be taken
back from the power company and your meter will spin
forward. The goal is that at the end of your
contract period (annual or monthly) you will have a
decreased utility bill. In many areas you may even
get a credit, if you are making more power than you use.
Plus, there are no expensive batteries to maintain.
Besides the solar modules, the other main component
necessary is the grid-tied inverter. This unit
will take your high voltage DC from the solar array and
invert it to 240V AC that can be used in your home
and/or sold back to the utility company. While
there are several good grid-tie inverter models, this
system (below) will feature the cost-effective and
reliable Fronius IG inverter. These inverters come in
sizes ranging from 2,000 to 12,000 watts. The
smaller of those inverters use a High Frequency
Technology that enables them to have a conversion
efficiency of 92.5%. The larger of these (4000 &
5100watt) use their MIX concept, which utilizes two
power stages--yielding increased efficiency during
partial load situations. These units are also known for
their ease of installation; they weigh in as the
lightest of all the grid-tie inverters—at 26 to 42
pounds. Add a Communication Card and a Datalogger
and you can keep an eye on the power you are producing
via computer and web. Soon there’ll be the larger IG
Plus inverter (up to 12,000 watts) to be released soon!

we can design one for you!

The importance of
keeping your S**** together! (that’s stuff,
by the way).
Those of us who own renewable energy power systems
generally know how crucial it may be to have your
technical information on hand—and pronto! If you are
having any problems, you will need to know what your
major components are, your inverter brand and model, the
kind of photovoltaic modules you have, size and capacity
of battery bank, service records, etc. If you sell your
place with its RE system, you will want to hand off a
stack of manuals, as well as dates and invoicing
information, to its new owner. Your installer or RE
salesperson should have provided you with detailed
technical drawings of your system. And of late, there’s
been a rather insidious rash of thefts of solar modules
and related equipment throughout the country. This is an
expensive technology, and bad people are learning how to
lift a solar array swiftly in the dark of the night.
First thing’s first: like any other important thing you
own (car, home, etc.) your goods should be insured. A
solar power system is no longer so esoteric that your
insurance carriers cannot cost effectively provide
coverage for it. Next, keep a list of serial numbers of
all your equipment. All PV modules come with a sticker
on the back that has its electrical information on it,
as well as manufacturer and serial number. Your inverter
and other components offers similar information.
Pictures of your system may come in handy for
documentation. While no one’s giving it away, you can
generally get security mounting hardware (for your
modules) that will help prevent theft. It may not deter
a serious thief, but it will make stealing more
difficult. And a metal engraver may not be a bad idea to
personalize your goods in a discrete fashion.
As to our latest
home/office system upgrade….
We just replaced our system’s batteries here
at Oasis Montana. Our 16 old ones were nine years old,
and we replaced them with slightly higher capacity
batteries (Rolls/Surrette S-530s). Except for the
occasional equalizing and topping off with distilled
water, our system has operated flawlessly, and with no
other maintenance during those nine years. Of course, I
have gone out and
dutifully checked the connections annually; initially I
tightened the lugs on the batteries a time or two. But I
did coat the batteries with an anti-corrosive gel, and I
have been amazed at how little maintenance this system
has needed. We did also upgrade our little wind
generator too (which has been working great for about ~2
years). By the way, if you are in need of some insomnia
curing information on batteries, check out our page at
Incentives—the good news and the bad.
The bad news is that the comprehensive energy bill
passed by Congress was attached to the rich guy bail-out
bill— which frankly we were not happy about. Whatever
happened to fiscal responsibility? If I make bad
business decisions, I don’t expect anyone to bail ME
out! But, be as it may, there are some good improvements
in tax credits for renewables, so hopefully it will make
for a more level playing field (based on what incentives
that have been available to fossil fuel and nuclear
industries for decades). What started out as a true
effort to advance renewable technologies ended up
largely co-opted by petroleum interests; in addition to
much needed assistance for the nation’s young renewable
energy industry (and assistance to related homeowners
and businesses), the bill included millions of dollars
for oil shale, tar sands and coal...not exactly a grand
commitment to clean, green power, to be sure. But, this
bill is now law, and the incentives (after Jan. 1st,
2009) include: 30% tax credit for all solar power
systems, which will remain in place until 2016. For
wind, 30% tax credit of the cost of a system, up to
$4000, limited to systems generating no more than 100kW.
Also, for electric vehicles, there’s a new tax credit
worth up to $7500 for the purchase of plug-in hybrid
electric vehicles (PHEVs — which should be available as
soon as 2010). For information on the different aspects
of this bill, visit
www.solarelectricpower.org and for incentives particular
to your state, also visit
www.dsireusa.org The time
is now to make the commitment to renewable energy!

Enphase Inverters make an "AC" solar module???
Enphase Inverters are the first

system, (that converts power from strings of modules),
microinverters convert DC power from each module in a
The main key elements of an Enphase
The Enphase Micro-Inverter (shown at
The EnergyManagement Unit
The Enlighten web-based analytics
All three elements are integrated to
provide a comprehensive energy production and management
system. The Enphase Micro-Inverter itself has a 15 year
warranty, and the modules that work with them have a 20
to 25 year output warranty.
Every module has maximum power point
tracking (MPPT), increasing energy production for
the entire system
No string calculations or combiner
No single point of system failure
Simplifies designing for roofs with
multiple angles and orientations
The system includes 24/7 monitoring
and management for each module.
These are available with 240V or 208V AC
voltage output; call for inverter pricing (240VAC or 208VAC). One of the advantages of
this ‘PV module/inverter’ is that purchasing a system
can be spread out over time; at present we can offer an
SGT-160 system, a single 160W module with this inverter
built on to. The SGT-160
comes with everything you need to start generating your
own solar power; all you need is a 240VAC power line to
run through a disconnect, then to the location to where
the panels are to be installed; after that everything
gets plugged in. The SGT-160 comes with its panel, flush
mounting system, and inverter built-in on the back. You
can install just one, then as your finances dictate, you
can add up to 15 more; once the first one is up, the
rest just plug in. Here are the SGT-160 kit
specifications: 64”L x 32”W x 4.5”D, weight 40 lbs.; the
solar module has a max power output of 160W, nominal
voltage is 24VDC. The inverter has a maximum output of
175W, with maximum voltage input of 54VDC, and AC
voltage output of 240VAC, with peak inverter efficiency
of 95%; UL 1741/IEEE1547 compliant. If you thought you
couldn’t afford a solar electric PV system, it may be
time to look at the Enphase Inverter System!
