This is the second grid-connected system Tony Skelton installed and is similar to his previous installation 2 years before. The difference this time was that it was fitted to the roof of his garden shed which already had some PVs that powered a low-voltage DC system for garden lights and a water feature.
12 x BP 585 panels (total 1020 Wp) were mounted on an Osmer racking system.
Another 2 x BP 585 modules were fitted on the roof for the existing 12-volt battery backup system. These were fitted by Tony and Wind & Sun supplied and installed all necessary AC and DC disconnect switches.
An SMA Sunny Boy Control Light system monitors performance of both inverters in the comfort of the house.
