The owners of this island beach house were concerned about having a quality solar system so they contracted Florida Renewable Energy to install their system. The solar installation for this home is a complete off-grid system on a remote island near the coast of Fort Myers, FL.
After running the load calculations for the 3 story beach house on the island, we determined that a 60 kWh battery bank would be sufficient to run the entire house without discharging the batteries more than 50%, leaving 30 kWh usable. giving the system 10,260 watts DC, on roof facing due south. I could tell that the homeowner was a man who valued quality, so I offered him the best components on the market for this system.
