Here are a list of parts that will enable you to build the solar charging piece of this diagram. You will spend $250-$300 on wiring and charge controller in addition to the panels, battery, and inverter you choose to use. This setup over-panels the 60 Amp charge controller by 240 watts, which is acceptable as this controller will limit the current to 60 amps and simply not use the excess wattage assuming it’s available. One will not typically get 100% efficiency from a panel due to sun angle, clouds, heat, etc. that are always a factor. Making the over-paneling reasonable.


Make sure you grab two MC-4 inline fuses, as you’ll want one per string of panels.
