SunStation Installed!

The first SunStation installation is done! This system includes 14 kWh of Valence lithium batteries and an Outback inverter. Unlike most other solar power systems, the solar panels will deliver power to the house with or without the grid active.

An existing 3.8 kW array was augmented with the new Panasonic solar panels on the right. They are about the same size as the older Sharp panels but much more efficient. In the bottom picture you can see the Outback inverter. The cabinet on the lower right houses the Valence batteries. The system will power the entire house in an outage with the exception of the central air conditioning system.

Unlike gasoline, diesel or natural gas systems this system provides power year round! There is no noise and no toxic emissions. SunStation has no moving parts and is zero maintenance. Solar power systems are eligible for Solar Renewable Energy Credits too which are cash payments for having an operating solar power system so you save money two ways.
