Why we use AGM or SILICON batteries…

By on Mar 27, 2013 in Power Package Systems (P) | 0 comments

RITAR AGM Battery Cells SILICON battery cells Our Power Package systems are all battery based systems, because storing energy on site is ALWAYS preferable to a grid-tied only connection. We have used AGM hybrid batteries for a number of reasons. While there are many new and highly publicized battery technologies, none of these compare to these lead-acid batteries in three important areas: Life cycle cost, Energy density and Performance. In a properly sized and executed power system, Hybrid AGM lead-acid batteries last nearly as long as Nickel-iron or Lithium-Ion cells, all use factors being the same. The energy density of lead-acid AGM batteries are similar to nearly all batteries including Nimh batteries and are only slightly less per kwh than Lithium-Ion, but the cost to operate and maintain is substantially below all newer battery technologies, with a predictable charge and discharge cycle and reliable voltage. Further, Lead-acid batteries can be easily recycled. Currently in the US, nearly 90% of all lead-acid batteries are recycled. We now offer SILICON Battery products including the new SILICON SALT battery technology and are the exclusive distributor for these power batteries in the USA. SILICON batteries have many advantages over lead-acid batteries. They are not subject to any temperature effects and can operate normally from minus 40F to 158 degrees F, can be completely recycled with NO acid or harmful materials. Further they offer 2.5 times as much instantaneous power without voltage drop and do not have to be charged daily, weekly or even monthly to a set point but have no memory effect. These SILICON batteries charge up to twice as fast as AGM batteries and have many more features which make them a good choice. We offer the SILICON battery at a slightly higher price than AGM battery system but they are very reasonable and extremely...

OFF-GRID Power Packages

By on Mar 27, 2013 in Power Package Systems (P) | 0 comments

Stacked system for stand-alone operation Typical 15-20 year AGM battery for off-grid Off-grid flow chart Our off-grid Power Package systems are very similar to our Grid-tie systems except that these systems utilize Outback inverters which are not rated for sell-back operation, and feature larger battery banks of our AGM/VRLA batteries for stand-alone operation. These systems also feature a backup generator control system. In situations where sell-back is not possible but load management using RE sources is desired, Power Packages can be grid-connected without selling back power.

GRID TIE Power Package MICRO-GRID

By on Mar 27, 2013 in Power Package Systems (P) | 0 comments

typical grid tie system with Mate-3 Available SILICON battery cell Grid-tie flow chart Our grid tied Power Package systems feature Outback GT/GV inverters with complete metering and controls in an all Outback system including FM-60 charge controller, Hub and Mate-2 communications with the Power Package standard plug-n-play design. These systems are completely programmed and ready to start up when installed. Installation has been simplified and all systems are supplied with either AGM batteries as standard or SILICON batteries at slightly higher cost-both maintenance free. Systems include PV array and roof mount for all applications sized for the system as indicated by our extensive field experience in Power Package applications. Why would you purchase half a solar power system? Not having batteries is like having a car with three wheels. High quality energy storage is and should be an integral part of any residential solar power system. As a MICRO-GRID system, you can choose when to purchase utility power and how you are billed, regardless of the grid-tie benefits.

Integrated Package Systems-PV modules

By on Mar 27, 2013 in Power Package Systems (P) | 0 comments

Typical 185 watt modules for systems Typical poletop mount systems All Power Package systems include PV modules and mounts in the pricing including array combiners and wiring connectors. Beacuse our systems have been optimized for our specific power production, all systems utilize 185watt monocrystaline modules rated at 14.5% power rating as this produces the most energy with the Outback MPPT style controller, thus all PV array sizes are built around this system design. Outback FM-60 controllers can handle up to 1800 watts per contoller at 24vdc and approximately 2800 watts per controller at 48vdc system voltage. Our array sizes are matched in voltage and output to maximize these and other settings in the charge controller....
