"The Homestead" Complete Off-Grid Solar PV Kit

Looking to cut ties with the grid full-time, and without sacrificing the comforts of modern-day life? Our Homestead Off-Grid 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 7kW off-grid solar PV system. A charge-controlled 48-volt deep-cycle battery bank with 36.9 kWh (770 amp-hours) 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).
