Grid Tie with Battery Back-Up
1.8 kW Solar Home System

The performance of each solar home system will vary greatly based on the location where it is installed. If you need help sizing a Solar Grid Tie system for your home, check out our On Grid System Calculator

Each of these solar home systems are designed to provide you with the main components you will need to equip your home with a grid-tied Solar system that includes a back up battery bank. altE's Home Solar Systems include the major components needed for a solar installation. Since each installation is unique, some parts/materials will need to be purchased separately to satisfy the needs of your specific project and local regulations. If you experience frequent power outages but want to keep your connection to the utility grid, one of these systems might be just the thing for you! From premium modules and racking systems, to efficient inverters and durable batteries, these packages include high quality, safe components for your solar installation.

Schneider Electric
Conext XW+ 5548 Inverter/Charger

solar packages

With higher power ratings, and improved battery management, the NEW Conext XW+ is an adaptable single-phase and three-phase hybrid inverter with grid-tie functionality and dual AC power inputs. Available solar charge controllers, monitoring, and automated generator control modules enable further adaptability. From a single Conext XW+ unit to clusters up to 102 kW, the Conext XW+ is a scalable system that allows for the integration of solar capacity as required. Adaptable and scalable, the Schneider Electric Conext XW+ system is the one solution for grid-interactive and off-grid, residential and commercial, solar and backup power applications.

The XW + Inverter/Charger is a self-contained DC to AC inverter, battery charger, and AC transfer switch all in one. When combined with the pre-wired XW + Power Distribution panel enclosure, it creates a sleek, code-compliant single inverter installation.

Features of the XW+ include:

  • Excellent load starting with high 30-minute and 5-second power
  • Improved battery management including support for Lithium-Ion technology
  • Superior balance of system integration with battery bank, charge controller, and generators, further simplifies installation
  • Supports DC coupled and AC coupled off-grid and grid-tie architectures
  • Intelligent functionality enables solar prioritization, load shifting, peak shaving, and assists small generators with heavy loads
  • Backup power with grid-tie functionality converts external DC power to AC power for export to the utility grid

Solar Charge Controller

Grid Tie with Back up Batteries

The Xantrex XW Solar Charge Controller is a photovoltaic (PV) charge controller that tracks the electrical maximum power point of a PV array to deliver the maximum available current for charging batteries. The controller features a two-line, 16-character liquid crystal display (LCD), 3 stage charging and ships with an included battery temperature sensor.

The Xantrex XW Solar Charge Controller incorporates a dynamic Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) algorithm designed to maximize energy harvest from the PV array. The MPPT constantly adjusts the operating points of the array to ensure it stays on the maximum power point. It does not stop energy harvest to sweep the array like some other competing products. This feature is beneficial all sunlight conditions, especially in areas with fast moving cloud cover and quickly changing solar conditions.



KiloVault PLC Battery

The KiloVault 2100 PLC is a pure lead carbon sealed AGM deep cycle solar battery, for cycling applications.  KiloVault 2100 PLC is a cost-effective, maintenance-free battery that offers superior performance in Partial State Of Charge (PSoC) applications, combining pure lead and advanced carbon technology for extended battery life and rapid charging.  The batteries are designed for residential or light commercial off-grid, backup, or self-consumption applications.

This home solar system includes (4) 12V, 180Ah batteries, which will be wired together for a 48V, 180Ah battery bank. Deep cycle batteries should not be discharged lower than 50%, so a battery bank of this size will provide approximately 2100 Watt hours (Wh) of energy per day, for two days when fully charged. This is a rough estimate of capacity, actual capacity can change based on temperature, state of charge and the condition of the batteries. Additional batteries can be added to this system to increase the capacity of the battery bank.
