If you need help sizing a system for your off grid cabin, check out our Off Grid System Calculator
Each of these home solar systems are designed to provide you with the main components you will need to take your cabin off the grid! Since each installation is unique, some parts/materials will need to be purchased separately to satisfy the needs of your specific project and local regulations. From premium modules and racking systems, to efficient inverters and durable batteries, these home solar systems include high quality, safe components for your off grid installation.
The 560W home solar system features four Kyocera 140W solar panels. Kyocera is the only module manufacturer to pass rigorous long-term testing performed by TÜV Rheinland for proven field performance. Each Kyocera 140W module has an aesthetically pleasing black anodized frame with easily accessible grounding points on all four corners for fast installation.

DC to AC Inverter/Charger
This high efficiency, microprocessor controlled DC-AC inverter converts 48 Volts DC (from a 48V battery bank) to 1500 watts of pure sine-wave AC power. The S-1500 inverter comes with dual NEMA 5-20R GFCI receptacles and features an RS-232 serial interface andremote control options.
Solar Charge Controller
Morningstar’s ProStar is the world’s leading mid-range PWM (pulse width modulated) solar controller for both professional and consumer applications. The ProStar controllers are known for their durability and set new standards for reliability and self-diagostics. This 15A version features an easy to read digital meter display and a 5 year warranty.
Deka Solar batteries are engineered and tested to provide reliable, long-lasting back-up power for PV and renewable energy applications where the batteries will be charged/discharged on a daily basis. These sealed AGM (Absorbed Glass Mat) batteries are spill proof and 100% maintenance free.
This home solar system includes (4) 12V, 92Ah batteries, which will be wired together for a 48V, 92Ah battery bank. Deep cycle batteries should not be discharged lower than 50%, so a battery bank of this size will provide approximately 845 Watt hours (Wh) of energy per day, for two days when fully charged.This is a rough estimate of capacity, actual capacity can change based on temperature, state of charge and the condition of the batteries. Additional batteries can be added to this system (either 4 or 8) to increase the capacity of the battery bank.
