5.8 kW Off-Grid Solar Install at Leonard Lake Reserve
5.8 kW off-grid solar system, using highly efficient REC 245PE solar modules with a Xantrex XW-MPPT-80-600 charge controller for managing the batteries' power, installed by Jon Frech near the remote and gorgeous Leonard Lake Nature Reserve in Redwood Valley, CA. This privately owned nature reserve is one of the wonders of Northern California http://www.leonardlakereservellc.com/
The owners installed 5.8 kW of REC panels on the bluff overlooking the site and then ran the power over 1,500 feet back to the main house using a The XW MPPT 80 600 which uses an innovative solar charge controller that offers an industry-first set of features: high PV input voltage (up to 600 Vdc), Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT), and 80 A charge current. 600 Vdc PV input voltage delivers lower installation costs through fewer PV strings, longer home runs, smaller wiring and conduit, and virtual elimination of PV combiner boxes and circuit breakers.
