Introduction:

The only plug and play small grid tie photovoltaic system;the stackable small grid tie photovoltaic system

Installation:

The individual system of SGPV is shown in Figure 2

Installing the solar panel of the SGPV at a suitable location that sunshine can irradiate on it.

Connecting the cables of the solar panel to the DC input terminals of the small grid tie inverter of the SGPV,inserting the plug of the inverter into the socket of the home grid.

After this,when the sun shines, the SGPV will convert the solar energy to the home grid.

Package:

Power inverter,User Manual and Power cord

After testing this device for two weeks, here's my take... I have it connected to my 12 volt / 305 watt solar array. It really cranks out the power! It's silent until the fans starts when it reaches 50 watts or so. I have it plugged into a Kill-A-Watt meter so I can see exactly how many watts and amps are being generated at all times. My electric meter goes to zero even with the refrigerator, desktop computer, HDTV and other small appliances running. This means that my solar panels are generating enough power to run everything in the house without using City Power. I have a Blue Line digital meter connected to my electric meter and it lets me know how much City Power is being used. The electric meter will zero out, but not spin backwards. This is fine with me since I can use the power that my solar panels are producing rather than constantly charging batteries that are never used since there has not been a power failure at my house since 2006. Back up power is fine, but you really want to use the power that your solar panels are generating NOW. Note: All of my solar panels combined are 305 watts and with full sunshine, the device runs until the electric meter goes to zero state and stays there until clouds pass by. It has never shown any sign of having a problem with more than 250 watts being connected to it. The fan cycles on and off but it's not overheating since the box itself is only warm.

This unit works as advertised but beware that in many areas you must have a co-generation permit to install this. The cost of the permit will be way more than you would ever save with it. Smart Meters easily detect that you've plugged this in and WILL report this to your power company. Without the Smart Meter it's hard for the power company to detect.

If you're in an area where you don't need a permit, then this could be for you. I tested one out and don't see any problems with it.

Hey had my doubts, but this actually works... hook your solar panels to it, plug it into the electric socket, and your going..., i watched the electric meter actually stop for 2 hours.... in the heat of summer! Been using it every day now for 3 mths now. Only have 55 watts worth of solar panels...got to remember your refrigerator, and freezer only run intermittently,, so it takes fewer watts than you think to make a difference....
am hoping I can hook a small wind generator to it, though it says for solar power. so long as i dont go over 250 watts or 30volts, thinking it might work... and can get another one of these and plug in another outlet... might go for a 500 watt grid tie inverter one day, thought I would start small...!

After reading up and watching videos on U-Tube, I decided to buy this product along with a kill-a-watt meter. Everything was just as is. Just plug in and start saving. I have 3 45 watt solar panels I bought from Harbor Freight, I have 4 marine deep cycle batteries hooked up. When running 12 volts to the grid tie inverter the output is only around 120 to 125 watts that you are putting back. When I wired the batteries in series and hooked up 24 volts to the grid tie inverter I was putting back 230 to 240 watts. Just make sure your wiring is correct. Don't want to blow the inverter up. Only wished I bought the 500 or 1000 watt instead because I intend on expanding and adding wind turbines to my setup. Recomend you go to Missouriwindandsolar.com They have great products at a reasonable price. That is where I intend to purchace my wind turbine from. Hopes this review helps. Tony from Indy.

Somewhat sceptical of the idea, I ordered one of these on Ebay (another brand), but it disappointedly churned out maybe 20W from a 100W panel tie-up. I was about to give up, but saw the good reviews here and thought I'd give the concept another try. Lo and behold this thing works, it does not roll the meter backwards unless perhaps you have an older analog meter, but it does reduce the current consumption coming in at the mains, this I can confirm because I monitored the current real time with and without the inverter on, and the unit is definitely performing as advertisesd! The cost of a 100W panel and this inverter (not counting wiring and connectors) costs about $400, and I am not sure how long these units last, so even assuming 20 cents a kilowatt hour, it will take a long time to recoup the investment (assuming average of 6h sunshine a day, 80% efficiency optimally, you are saving around $35 a year only, taking 11+ years to recoup your investment !), but there is something satisfying that you are harvesting "free" energy from the sun. I intend to add another 100W panel to this set up and see how that goes.

Solar Panels not included!

Bought a 600W inverter on Amazon and thought I would give it a try and see if I could reduce my electric KWH. Hooked the inverter to a couple of home made PV panels (~240W). I have the panels wired to a cheap charge controller which then charge a couple of truck batteries. PV panels are on porch as this is a test set up I've been working on since last winter. Panels are not getting direct sun light now that it is Summer. Very easy to hook up. Initially inverter put out about 180 Watts per my Kill-A-Watt meter. Output dropped to around 25 Watts and charge controller started to show low battery voltage. Also, noticed the green LEDs were now only flashing (1-3-1-3-1-3) , instead of the initial 1-2-3-1-2-3-1-2-3.

Picked up four Evergreen 210 Watt panels and mounted two of them where they would receive full sun. Hooked the two Evergreen panels to the inverter in parallel ( 12V+ @ about 22A ). Inverter put out about 260 - 290 Watts. Still only 2 LEDs flashing (1-3-1-3-1-3-1). Thinking the inverter could be defective, I ordered two of the 250 Watt inverters. When the two 250 Watt inverters arrived I hooked them up one each to a single panel and piggy-backed into the Kill-A-Watt meter. Output was about 250 - 260 Watts. It appears that the two 250W inverters may be slightly less efficient than one larger inverter. (3% ?)

Bottom line is that the inverter does work and under light household load the electric meter runs backward. Saved about 8 KWH this week per the Kill-A-Watt meter. (5 sunny days @ 45 degrees North)

(Note: As this is a Grid Tie Inverter it must detect 120VAC when it is plugged into the wall outlet. If your power company's power goes out the inverter stops working.
