Preston, those batteries can't cycle down to zero, right? Won't that destroy them? I was thinking of doing something like this at the house but using the 18650 batteries like what TESLA uses. Also, I heard the lead-acid batteries "gas." I'm curious how this has worked over the years. You posted this in 2016. Great video, btw! Thank you. I've learned a lot from it.
prestonstroud 5 months ago
The heavy duty 6v golf cart batteries can cycle down to 10.5v before the system will shutdown to protect the batteries. Yes, the lead acid batteries will gas. After about 7 years, the batteries just would not hold a decent charge any more. I have downsized the bank and started replacing with newer batteries.

Can you do an update of your solar system ? How it’s doing now ? Any new additions and , or upgrades ? Is it still up and running ? How is the power input and output AC and DC ? Did you have a chance to use it anytime when there was an outage , or just to save on the electric bill ,especially anytime day or night ? Or grid tie ? This would be a great presentation. You can check out my solar setup videos because this AIMS inverter is a very good product as like Magnasine , Outback , Powerjack , Sigineir , GT power or any Low Frequency power inverters. Thank You .

Also don't disconnect fuses or wiring on your panels without disconnecting the load first. You generate a terrific dc arc if you do. Bad things happen if you do that.
Peter Holman
Peter Holman 9 months ago
Also you need a professional electrician to do this. Cable has to go underground in conduit at least 18" down. You need an interlock or transfer switch (manual or automatic). You also need to have subpanels properly wired (bond wires and neutrals not connected) in case you drop a neutral you don't electrify the box.
Peter Holman
Peter Holman 9 months ago
If you put an interlock on your main panel (at least do that) you can only run from grid or solar but not both at the same time.
Peter Holman
Peter Holman 9 months ago
Your panels will only produce the wattage required by the load. So if you only are running 5 leds it will only pull 50 watts from the panels. I would put your necessary emergency loads in a subpanel with a double throw safety switch between them. This allows everything to run from the grid or the larger 220 volt items from the grid and 120 volt items from the solar at the same time. You then don't need to turn the main breaker off when you use solar. I have this system on my home.

I have a noob question, why not a 12v battery?
prestonstroud 10 months ago
I had 12v and then upgraded to 24v. I have 2,900 watts of solar panels at 37v. The solar panel voltage is reduced to the battery voltage of 12v. This was causing the wiring to overheat and get extremely hot. I upgraded all the wiring but it was still an issue. After upgrading to a 24v system, the overheating problems went away. Picture 2,900 solar watts must be pumped through the wires. 12v is like pushing 2,900 watts through a drinking straw so it must go faster and push harder to get the same energy through. 24v is like pushing 2,900 watts through a water hose, so it can go slower to get the same energy through and does not overheat.

I changed all my lighting to LED. Guess this is a 2 year old video so I assume you did that already. For cool inside lighting, I used RGBWW strips inside an aluminum channel with opaque diffuser. Essentially my lightbulbs are between 6 and 14' long. I have remotes for each channel and change my lighting to any color and warm white if I want to read and any brightness. For outside lighting on a large acreage project I used Inductive lighting that lasts 60000 hours and is more efficient than LED. I had to make brackets for the lights out of aluminum tubing as each extension was $400 per pole. Cost to build was $40 plus some fun time with a mig welder. a 50w bulb up 20 feet covers about 100feet radius at night. It was rediculous to use 6 gage wire but that is the smallest overhead wire made. (triplex). 14 lights pretty much covers 5 acres where you can see the ground and not trip over things. I used 4000k frequency so it is like about 11am in the morning for the color of light. Nice layout. I would guess in 2018 you will switch over to Lithium when those deep cycles wear out. Watching guys use chevy volt batteries. They are way cheaper and not as good but useable than tesla batteries. Good use for Volts, better than their cars.
prestonstroud 10 months ago
Yes, a few years ago we switched to florescent and now we are slowly switching to LED lights in the house. We have seen a nice drop in electric bills just from the lighting change.On the Batteries, they started going bad. I reduced the 24 golf card batteries down to 12 and replaced about half of those to improve the performance.Nice ideas you have for providing lighting to help in emergencies.

Batteries and inverter is better really for many reasons. Like no noise, power 24/7, clean steady power no surges etc. With generator only have power when it is running guzzling fuel. If not wanting solar or wind power, then a small generator could be used during power outage to charge batteries if they drain to low. Only need to run genny a few hours a day at lower load for charging thus saving money on fuel etc... But still have 24hr power. Being at end of line on crappy rural power grid I had many power issues like random 105v and 125v dips and surges and some power outs for 1-5 minutes randomly etc... all bad for electronics! Rather than run a tiny Ups for each item I just installed inverter with batteries to run 1/2 the house! Kept charged with grid power and provided perfect clean power to all important stuff. We can lose power for the dumbest reasons anytime. Onetime was without grid power 1-2 days, they said a racoon got into sub station shorted and fried a transformer or something. No problem for me, batteries and inverter ran entire time. Ice storm ripped down lines and busted poles and I was without power for over 2 weeks a few years ago. No problem for me! I just ran generator about 4-5hrs once every 2 days as needed to charge batteries, otherwise life as normal at my house. Wow, gas/diesel about $4-$5 a gal here then, just think the cost to run generator 24/7 if I had not had batteries and inverter. Solar at the time was about $4 a watt which is why I did not have it then. At about $1 watt ( less in volume and wholesale now) I am putting in solar. I have had some panels stored for emergency use for years, not installed though because if tornado kills the house it would certainly take the solar also. This way if I lose the house but live I can still have power for anything that still works. LOL Not a paranoid nut, just realistic. Over the last 20 years lost power many times, sometimes a few minutes or few hours, a couple days, and 2 weeks + Also been missed 2 times by tornadoes, 1 about 5 miles North, other about 5 miles south.

This is the worst inverter I ever used the AM radio bussed seventy five feet away from our home and testing with a Fluke scopemeter what a terrible sine wave. Within a year the inverter stopped working sent it to Amis and they wanted $750.00 to repair it and could not explain why it failed being shut of for three months. If you are going solar find one that has a lower transits and harmonics on the power line, Over time people get sick

What the author of the video calls "pollen" is in reality chemical component dispersal by planes. It is called geo-engeneering, chemtrails, aerial spraying. It is a menace to our health and agriculture.
gravelydon 6 months ago
Commie Slayer, Are you really that crazy? What you call Chemtrails are nothing more than contrail from the exhaust of the engines. They are formed from the compression of water molecules in the air and being heated and then cooled. Watch a video from WW II sometime and you'll see recip engines doing the same thing at about 20,000 ft or higher. And here in Florida, the ground, cars, homes, etc... can turn yellow from the Pine pollen. Known facts not made up BS.

COUNTER-NUT! Are you trying to convince me that the haze over the horizon which stretches from the ground up to 30K-40K feet elevation is a pollen? Did you ever notice planes leaving long and expanding lines behind them which turn in to this haze all over our country??? Do you have any idea how really blue sky looks like and any idea about natural cloud formation??? If you don't have any of these knowledges you have an opportunity to upgrade it instead coming here and making hideous statements. What you call a "Pollen" is actually restricting the sun rays to reach fully these solar panels diminishing full functionality of these panels.

I also really liked that in-line red led amp and voltage meter. After about 12 months, it blew. I ordered another from either Amazon or ebay and replaced it. Some time later, that one blew too. I think I was sending too many amps at a low voltage. I was running about 80-90 amps at 24 volts through it.

Peter Holman
Peter Holman Year ago
If you don't mind a suggestion. On your main panel move the inverter circuit breaker to the top left and purchase a plastic interlock for about $35 of ebay made for your panel type. It provides a physical block that prevents you from throwing the inverter circuit breaker without first turning off the main grid power breaker. This prevents you from physically turning on the grid power and feeding it into your inverter and visa versa. You can also buy a transfer switch but they are expensive. I did this on my system and it works fine and is legal.

Just get a generator. No energy is free those batteries will die.
Den Stump
Den Stump Year ago
Generators die also! Often when most needed and just suddenly or from neglect being seldom used. A generator only provides power if running guzzling fuel, fine if you only want power couple hours a day maybe, 24/7 gets mighty expensive. You cannot store fuel for years, fuel dies fast! In a real emergency you may not be able to get fuel! Your not the only person needing fuels if grid is down, everyone with a generator needs same fuel! Major storms hit everywhere and destroy everything, anytime. What if nowhere to buy fuel! Drive through major tornado destroyed area to nearest station open about 100 mile round trip to buy what maybe 20gal gas to haul home and at what price? $5gal?? A few years ago gas was about $4gal normal price, and of course price gouging for any reason anytime they can. Batteries and inverter provide clean quite power 24/7 just need to keep them charged. Built right should store enough power for day or 2 at least. Can always just charge from generator if needed in a few hours and save tons of fuel not running it 24/7. With generator only either run it 24/7 or be without power when not running. Takes lots of fuel just to run with no load just to be able to flip on a light or tv at 2am, or keep the cordless phone on for incoming calls. Etc... Generators are not free either, change oil, filters, fuel, etc ... And may or maynot start easy or at all when most needed. Well taken care of good deepcycle batteries should last 10yrs or longer. Many generators do not. I have batteries that served me well for near 15yrs now and still good, been through many power outages over the years ranging from few minutes, hours, days, and even over 2weeks once. Just need a way to recharge them as needed during the longer power outages of course. Running a generator a few hours every couple days can work well to keep batteries charged, and Not running generator 24/7 for weeks uses less fuel etc.. And is better for the generator also. Solar and wind is best way to have emergency power for keeping batteries charged, but anything works when needed. Heck, if having to use generator it works fine but if generator blows up we could even charge from a running car 1 12v battery set at a time if we had to. Not great, but could be done. Generator only, if it blows your just screwed! If no fuel, your screwed.

I highly recommend to rework the positions in the panel and use an interlock. They are cheap and will allow you to have a safety "Either/or" power input into the main panel. You are on the right track and take your test set up and tweak it a bit . You will have a nice set up. The safety Sally's will be on your case, but I get what your doing. Your house, your peril.

how much amperes or watts it need on input?
Den Stump
Den Stump Year ago
How many amps any inverter needs as input from batteries depends on the devices being powered from the inverter and how long. The higher the load the more amps needed from battery. For example, my 12v Aims 5000watt inverter needs LOTS of battery amps to supply full 5000watts of power, but I have ran it many times just fine on 1 battery 12v 115amp hrs when I just needed to power a few tools that were not much of a load. Used it in truck to run small stuff like electric chainsaw, weed eater, drill, saws, etc... And 1 battery at 115amphrs was fine for those loads. Of course I needed much more battery amps to run my 2hp air compressor,
Sam Fusioncell
Mr. Stroud thank you for your efforts and results....I understand your only intention was to show an emergency back up working yet here is a what if question... can you reliably count on the AIMS to only start & run a central HVAC for at least 15 minutes (just to cool off the home) ? If yes, would you be comfortable letting the AIMS do one good thing only and just cycle the HVAC during peak solar and hot time of a day ? Given your 2900 watts of solar panels feeding 24 golf cart batteries how much time (during peak sun) could handle just one(1) smaller HVAC load (2600 watts consumed per 13.1 A @ 220 VAC). It appears from your concern about HVAC, running the battery's is valid.... but if only 15 minutes at a time were achieved to cool off a house... it would be worthwhile to simply switch back to the grid to maintain the cooler temps.
