3720 Watt Array
Each Solar Collector is 155 watt at 24VDC.
Each 4 collectors are series connected. Each group of 6 are in parallel.
The arrays are divided into two MX-60 Outback charge controllers.
These in turn through circuit breakers connect to two GVFX-3648 Outback inverters.
The inverters are controlled by an Outback Mate and Grid-Tied.
There are four 12VDC AGM 245AH batteries in series to power the Inverters at night.
Thanks to Mike Brown of Solar-Ray Orlando Florida for equipment selection and guidance
in this successful application of Photovoltaic energy to assist powering my home.

This project was funded by a grant from through the Florida Solar Energy
Program. Please see their web site at:http://www.dep.state.fl.us/energy/energyact/solar.htm
At the time of this writing, May 05, 2007 the rebate program will refund you $4.00 / watt.
This covers only the Solar Collectors and none of the charge controllers or inverters
or physical supports, wireing.
