Electrical Enclosures

Batteries and inverters need to live within 10 feet of each other, but not in the same enclosure. Most of our electrical enclosures are built to accommodate specific inverters, as well as circuit breakers for the power inverter and solar charge controller. Most electrical enclosures also carry ground fault protection for the solar PV array and some extra space left over to make running wires easier. For help choosing the right electrical enclosure, our Tech Desk is available to help at 800-919-2400.

"Some of the nicer off-grid setups we’ve seen have the battery enclosure on one side of a wall, and the inverter and other equipment on the other side, making for a very short inverter cable run."
