We finished up this 54 module grid tie system on The Bansley's Berkshire Ridge Farms in Harrison, Arkansas back in February. We were delighted to provide affordable green energy to this free range, non-GMO hog farm.
The two SMA SB6.0-US inverters pictured have a unique feature of providing power in the daytime when the power goes out without the need for batteries. This feature can be used to run lights or charge batteries for power tools, or may be used to power a larger battery charger for a separate UPS system.
This system can also be upgraded to a fully functioning off grid system with additional components later on down the road, leaving all options on the table. Other grid tie brands offer the same, but currently the full potential output power, battery selection and size is limited.
