Answers

Hello Ozzy, This system is designed to be used with a 24-volt battery bank as the included 40-amp MPPT Rover charge controller can only accommodate 520-watt while maintaining a 12-volt battery bank and 800-watts when recharging a 24-volt battery bank. Please contact us with any other questions, have a wonderful day!

What devices is this enough power to run?

Asked by Jim September 3, 2020
1
Answer

Hello Jim, Thanks for reaching out and your questions. A 800-watt solar system will produce about 130 amp hours per day at 24-volts in optimum conditions. This type of power can be used to power a variety of loads, we always recommend providing us with the rated wattage of your electrical loads and the approximate run time of these loads. With these values, we can size a solar system that can keep up with your electrical demands. Thank you and have a wonderful day.

How far from my house can I set these panels?

Asked by BigRed September 3, 2020
1
Answer

Hello, This kit included 20-feet of cabling to be used between your charge controller and the solar panels. You may also purchase extension wires if you need to add additional distance. Please contact us with any questions, have a great day.

Do I need electricity to use these solar panels?

Asked by JS August 8, 2020
1
Answer

Hello JS, Thanks for reaching out, the solar panels are producing electricity which can recharge a 24-volt battery bank. This D/C electricity can be converted to A/C power with a 24-volt inverter and A/C power can be used to operate most of your household appliances. Please contact us with any other questions you may have, have a wonderful day.

What size 12V batteries do I need for this setup? 100AH?

Asked by Vagabond August 3, 2020
1
Answer

Hello, Thank you for reaching out and your questions. The Renogy 800-watt 24-volt system will produce about 140 amp hours at 24-volts per day during optimum solar collection conditions. We would recommend a 24-volt battery bank rated at 300 amp hours. Please contact us with any other questions, have a wonderful day.

I NEED A 3000 WATT SYSTEM PLEASE?

Asked by TIM July 14, 2020

Answer

Hello Tim, Thank you for reaching out and your question. We offer cabin kits able to produce well above 3000-watts. We can also help with sizing and customize a solar system around your needs. Thank you again and have a wonderful day.

Can this power a treadmill?

Asked by PLR May 23, 2020
1
Answer

Please keep in mind that if you will be powering A/C loads it is important to take the rated watts of each load and divide it by the operational voltage of your battery bank. For example, a 200-watt A/C load divided by 12-volts equals an hourly amperage consumption of 16-17 amps per hour. You can now take the amperage consumption (16-17 amps) and multiply it by your load's approximate runtime and this will equal the necessary amount of amp hours. 17 amps multiplied by a runtime of 2 hours equals 34 amp-hours.

will it run an air conditioner either 13500 or 15000 btu

Asked by jeremy May 19, 2020
1
Answer

Thank you for the question! 15,000 is about 1300w to 1800w per hour. It really depends on how long you plan on running that AC for as a 800w kit charging 24v batteries would only recover the amount pulled from the batteries if the AC ran for only 2 hours. Thank you, M.S.

Will this set-up run a 3 hp single phase motor for 8 hrs per day?

Asked by the3cfam May 18, 2020
1
Answer

Thank you for the question! 3hp would be about 2237w per hour or 17.8kw for 8 hours. That kind of load would need at least 4000w of solar to recover that amount of power per day. Thank you, M.S.

Can I hook two of these packages together?

Asked by Joe April 26, 2020
1
Answer

Thank you for the question! No two kits cannot be combined with two separate charge controllers. This is because the charge controllers will see any outside source charge, including a second controller, and limit the solar power to keep the batteries from being overcharged. Thank you, M.S.

Directions are very poor - don’t even address the mounting of the panels or their orientation. No explanation on what you might connect to some of the ports on the controller.

Review was supposed to be for the 800 watt system where they barely give you enough cable for 2 panels let alone 8!
I bought the 800 watt 24 volt System. The graphics on the web page show enough cable to wire 8 panels, 2 batteries and the controller. But the kit came with barely enough wire and connectors to wire 2 panels and one battery! That is extremely misleading. Now I will have to spend more money for what I should have received in the first place.

Hello,

Please note the solar panels must be connected in Series/Parallel, the kit will include the necessary wiring to complete a 4x2 series/parallel configuration. Please contact us and we can help and provide wiring diagrams. RENOGY
Easy hook up. Everything works great. Panel produces 15v even on a cloudy day

I would have given this a min 4 star rating except one of the panels is not the same physical size as the rest, I did not notice this until the installation was all most completed. As far as performance the system is doing exactly what I expected.

previous review just plain wrong
You should’ve wired the panels 2/12v in series to make 24v outputs Instead of 12v parallel. The charge controller can handle 24v. It increases the charge output Vcc to give you a more efficient chargeback

Customer review from renogy.com logo
Like the output of the panels. You guys truly are the ones to go to for Solar. Maybe the Most trusted name in panels? But saying all that... was disappointed the wiring KIT didn't include more multiple connectors to tie everything together. But oh well, we live in a "fallen world" correct? Nothing is perfect till we get Home with Him! Keep up the good work. I will tell my friends about your good quality panels and accessories. Denny God Bless
