Nope. Again, no menion of a high voltage DC input from solar panels for nominal continuous operation in grid-tie mode. Bob On Sun, Jan 18, 2015 at 7:51 PM, len moskowitz via EV ev@lists.evdl.org wrote: Have a look at the Outback line.

Nice! And it looks like (pg 18, installation manual) you can use the bypass breakers in the GSLC to act as service disconnect if you use only one unit. Really nice system! -- View this message in context:

To continue the efficiency debate for y our solar carport, there are some very low prices at http://sunelec.com 28 cents/watt amorphous panels 1.1 x 1.3m 5.8w/sqft 44 cents/watt big 4' x 7.7' panels 12.8W/sqft 64 cents/watt normal 3.3' x 5.4' giving 13.6W/sqft So again, it you have PLENTY of

I don't know of any currently available battery based inverters that can accept a PV array input. They all assume that you are using a charge controller for the DC power coming into the batteries, and they only handle the power going out for the DC-AC conversion, or charge the batteries from an
