Off grid energy system

This off grid energy genverter system is designed to sustain an off grid home with 4000 watt usage per day. It is called genverter because it is designed around a generator and an inverter. Most, if not all off grid energy systems, will need a generator so we use this generator as a foundation in our genverter system. Solar is an option on our off grid energy genverter systems.

Our 4kW off grid genverter system starts with a US made Perkins 8 kW Diesel generator. This is the best money can buy and is very economical to run. Along with its 1800 RPM Water cooled engine, everything is tagged when it leaves the factory so that startup is a breeze. Shown below is the four cylinder 15kW. This system uses a three cylinder. (looks the same minus one cylinder)

The Perkins Diesel generator is connected to our proprietary MidNite solar Magnum e-panel. Our e-panels are super simple to hook up. All the wiring is already done. All that needs to be done is mount it on a wall and hook the battery bank negative and positive. Hook up the generator hot leads and AC out. All the rest has already been done for you. What we like about our Magnum inverter e-panels is they are simple with little-to-no programming needed. Shown below with optional charge controller mounted. Charge controller is an actual component of our solar options. If adding solar, we will have it wired in from the factory.

Our Hardy Solar proprietary e-panels are built by Robin Gudgel. Robin has played an important roll in every inverter advancement to date. Robin has finally documented some interesting facts as to the history and evaluation of the modern off grid inverter.

Our magnum MidNite solar E-panel is then connected to our AGM 4kW battery bank. We use AGM because they are maintenance free. They can also ship non hazmat. Consider having to hydrate three cells on eight batteries while having to breathe toxic gas on a conventional lead acid bank and you will be happy with your AGM batteries that need no filling. We find that AGM in the real world outlasts Lead acid three two one based on the fact that in the real world, most people will let at least one cell go dry in a lead acid battery once or twice per year. This brings down your whole bank.

Below is an example of a simple but effective off grid energy shed. The important thing when constructing is no direct line of sight in or out. Also the ducts should be no smaller than the radiator core.

Off Grid Solar panel options

If you have the money, solar is a wise addition to this system. How much solar should you buy? As much as you can afford. It will pay for itself in reduced generator run time. It will allow you to use more energy during the day as well without the need for generator run time.
