Query on System

Postby New_Solar2020 » Mon Mar 30, 2020 11:08 am

Hi, just moved into a new (old) property and chasing some assistance/specs on the type of solar system that has been installed (I think in the last 10yrs). The inverter has the brand "flex" on the fron
There are currently 8 panels on roof, would like to know how i can determine if its worthwhile installing a battery and more panels?

Could you give us some more detail such as:

Is the system off-grid?
Are there any batteries installed now?
Could you check the "flex" for some more details, like part no., serial no., any hint of tech specs.?
Most of all, what do you want to do with the system?

Primary system: .8KW Trina panels; Plasmatronics PL40; 1,000Ah VRLA 12X2V battery bank; 1.7KW Selectronic inverter. Off grid for 30 years.

Spares; 5 x 12V, 1,000 Ah batteries plus a couple of regulators
