Looking to cut ties with the grid full-time, and without sacrificing the comforts of modern-day life? Our Homestead Solar PV Kit has the power required for you and your family to live comfortably off the grid. This kit contains everything you need to set up a 6.48kW off-grid solar PV system. A charge-controlled 48-volt deep-cycle battery bank with 770 amp-hours (or 36.9 kWh) of battery storage ensures you'll have power when you arrive, and dual 4400W pure sine wave inverters with 120- and 240-volt output give you options to power a huge variety of AC loads including power tools and laundry machines. This kit includes all cables, breakers, and junction boxes needed for a complete system installation, and even includes the components needed to integrate a backup generator into the system (backup generator not included).
