  • Outback FlexPower, opinions requested

    I need to do a total upgrade to my very primitive system and am looking for recommendations for my application.

    This is for an off-grid house, (no grid power available or in the foreseen future), located in Baja California.

    The all-in-one system looks simple enough, but is it cost effective? Looking for a pure-sine inverter charger, ~3000w 24V

    Thoughts? Thanks

    First, I'd steer you toward 48V if you are doing a makeover and want 3Kw of inverter. it's easier to make a higher voltage battery string, then a lower voltage string of the same watt hour capacity, the cells in a series string stay balanced easier.

    What's your source for batteries ? If it's within your power budget, golf cart batteries are usually plentiful and cheap.
