Answer: 
The 1060 watt rating here is the DC nameplate rating. A better metric is the PTC rating of the panel, which is 239.1 watts DC (956 watts total, this would be the theoretical maximum output in full sun with ideal conditions). However, this number varies widely depending on panel placement, your latitude, ambient temperature, etc. In general, a system of this size will produce an average of 3,180 Read More

Answer: 
This doesn't make sense to me. If 4 panels combined can convert sunlight into 1060 Watts then that is an immediate result. If these panels produce 1060 Watts for a full hour then they have produced 1.06 KWH. If they can produce 1060 Watts for 8 hours then they will produce 8.48 KWH for that period.
Is my math wrong?

I live in Alaska. My home has a good view to the south and west. Could I place 4 panels on a mounting bracket about 3-5 feet above the ground?

I do not want to mount panels on my roof. I could mount the solar panels on the side of the house, or on a mounting bracket 3-5 feet above the ground. Would this work? Thanks.

Answer: 
For best year-round production, the panels must face due south at approximately a 40 degree angle. For grid-tied systems, any mounting hardware must be UL listed and conform to local AHJ codes. In general, UL listed ground mounting kits are not available for systems under 12 panels in size. We would recommend a roof or pole mount in this situation - Grape Solar can give you custom quotes through your Read More

Answer (1)

October 10, 2016
Answer: 
This is a grid-tied kit, it does not use or require batteries. Although you can retrofit grid-tied systems with batteries by using AC coupling, it is expensive and requires a separate battery bank and inverter/charger system. Contact Grape Solar directly for battery backup quotes, priced through your local HD Pro Desk.

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Not bad solar panels I did some checking and when I bought these panels they were rated as the top 3. In stalled my self and made my on mounting. Grape solar company was not bad they did help here and there. But the wanted a professional to install the system. It's just 4 wires not a rocket scientist need. I had to get a net meter form my electric provider at 125$. After all was installed I did a small test and it looked like the meter was running backwards with 2 deep freezers and 3 ceiling fans once I turned on my tv the meter stopped going backwards.
