"The Cabin" Complete Off-Grid Solar PV Kit


Our Cabin Off-Grid Solar PV Kit is perfect for keeping your off-grid cabin's basic loads powered (lights, refrigerator, fan) with enough power left over to run some of your favorite amenities like a stereo, TV, and additional kitchen appliances. This kit contains everything you need to set up a 2.7kW off-grid solar PV system. A charge-controlled 48-volt deep-cycle battery bank with 18.4 kWh (385 amp-hours) of battery storage ensures you'll have power when you arrive, and a 4400W pure sine wave inverter with 120- and 240-volt output gives you options to power a huge variety of AC loads. This kit includes all cables, breakers, and even junction boxes needed for a complete system installation.
