I’m building an off grid house and need some input on a few products. For the construction I bought an old 2 inverter outback system with AMG batteries for the construction. I plan on keeping the 2 MX60, inverters, AC, and DC boxes but the batteries are toast. It cost me $1,500 and was better than running a genset and keeping it fueled. So far my new system contains 30 – 200 watt Evergreen panels, a PVSV, hydro turbine that puts out 925 watts, and trimetric. I should receive my 3 XW6048, 2 XW charge controllers, XW system controller, with everything needed to wire it together in about a week. I have been looking at batteries for some time and I can’t decide on what to get. I want something around 1,800 to 2,000 amp hour (20 hours). I keep looking at getting two 48 volt 1,200 amp hour batteries but for some reason I feel uneasy about getting them; I know what manufacture I want to use if I go that way. There are just too many choices out there and I can’t decide on if I should go with one of the brands that’s more connected to PV.
