The Sol-Ark 15K Hybrid Inverter System incorporates a battery-based inverter, charge controller, display with remote monitoring, auto generator start, load center with breakers, rapid shutdown, and WiFi connectivity all into one pre-wired system enclosed in a single housing - but with this version, the housing is rated for outdoor installation. This hybrid inverter has it all and does it more efficiently than the competition.
Sol-Ark's 15K solar + storage solution simultaneously manages power to and from the PV array, the battery bank, the grid, a backup generator, and your loads. It supports 12kW of continuous power for off-grid production, and up to 15kW continuous for grid-tied production.
Being pre-wired with so many system components already integrated, Sol-Ark's 15K hybrid inverter makes a great choice (and an easy installation) for off-grid, grid-tie, or battery backup solar installations. Up to 12 of the 15K systems can be stacked in parallel.
In addition to the easy installation of the single pre-wired housing, Sol-Ark has also excelled in the area of PV-to-AC efficiency, boasting a CEC-weighted efficiency of 96.5% (peak performance up to 97.5%) - meaning a smaller solar array can be used to get the same amount of power as systems with other inverters.
California and Hawaii customers: CEC listing, CA Rule 21 compliance, SGIP and HECO certifications are expected in early August 2022. These state and local specific requirements will need to be in place before a Sol-Ark 15K inverter can be permitted and pass inspection for interconnection with the grid.
The Sol-Ark system is great for off-grid PV systems, AC coupling an existing grid-tie system, or as the heart of a brand new grid-tie system with battery backup, offering the following operation modes:
