If you need help sizing a system for your off grid cabin, check out our Off Grid System Calculator
Each of these home solar systems are designed to provide you with the main components you will need to take your cabin off the grid! 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. From premium modules and racking systems, to efficient inverters and durable batteries, these home solar systems include high quality, safe components for your off grid installation.
The 280W cabin home solar system features two Kyocera 140W solar panels. Kyocera is the only module manufacturer to pass rigorous long-term testing performed by TÜV Rhineland for proven field performance. Each Kyocera 140W module has an aesthetically pleasing black anodized frame with easily accessible grounding points on all four corners for fast installation.

DC to AC Inverter/Charger
Magnum Energy MM-AE series inverters are an economical power conversion solution designed to provide dependable modified sine wave electricity in off grid systems. The MM1524AE can provide up to 1500W of continuous power, but can also be used in conjunction with a generator or any renewable energy source to charge a 24V, deep cycle battery bank.
Solar Charge Controller
Xantrex C Series PWM (Pulse Width Modulated) charge controllers automatically initiate a 3-stage battery charging cycle. Bulk, Absorption, and Float modes are used to ensure that voltage and current settings accurately match the batteries’ actual state of charge. This means fast-as-possible charging and extended battery life. An auto equalize mode can be easily switched off when the controller is used with sealed batteries.
Deka Solar batteries are engineered and tested to provide reliable, long-lasting back-up power for PV and renewable energy applications where the batteries will be charged/discharged on a daily basis. These sealed AGM (Absorbed Glass Mat) batteries are spill proof and 100% maintenance free.
This home solar system includes (2) 12V, 92Ah batteries, which will be wired together for a 24V, 92Ah battery bank. Deep cycle batteries should not be discharged lower than 50%, so a battery bank of this size will provide approximately 420 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 (either 2 or 4) to increase the capacity of the battery bank.
