here is the house i need to have some power to for 2 nights and 2 days a week .not wanting to run much 2 lights coffee maker, 115 volt water pump that pulls 8 amps
use of lights maybe a total 5 hours .water pump maybe 2 hours a week end ,I plan on having 2 hf kits ,30 amp cc , 2300 inverter and from what i've been reading i should get 4 - 6 v golf batt. Now this sounds like it should work since the system will have 5 days to recharge .
Any thoughts or concrens that i'm missing ?
I think you plan seems solid as long as the coffee maker isn't left on ;)
I'm thinking the pump is sort of an on demand deal for wash/rinse water? Down the road consider a 12v or portable fan for ventalation - exhaust, they don't draw all that much. At my camp I planned for extended weekend - vacation use, sometimes it's just 2 & 2. 150 watts and plenty of reserve to run a thermoelectric cooler 3.7 amp draw for 6-8 hours a day. Plus lights, charging tools, aa/aaa batts, radio, laptop on occasion. And you'll have better batteries. When your controller is indicating a good float & you get to know your system so it's not overtaxed you'll be fine. Maybe consider budgeting for a 3rd kit just in case. Good luck.
i do plan on putting to more sets up for a total of 4 sets,with the thougt of having a breaker box ,along with 4 outlets along with a couple ceiling fans with lights.
My concern know is do i run 8 or 10 awg wire to water pump ,and can i run the strandard 14/2 wire for plugs and lights ? can i use a strandard breaker box ,with 15 amp breakers .Also from reading i should put in a ground rod .
can i put 2 sets of hf panels below my exiting ,would that be enough of a pitch ?
If your asking about ac wiring after the inverter - breaker box I'd like to suggest you start a discussion in the general forum so an electrician or someone more qualifed can help you. After all you've got a house - structure there.
I'd have to say though the pitch on the roofing below the top set of panels is too steep.
