Hi Guys,

not mine, but I stumbled across this during my travels around the internets:


they're asking for around $2.5k

doesn't come with batteries

I'm kinda thinking of getting it to power my house, with the 800 x 1.2v 30Ah nimh cells I have sitting in my shed
on the fence on this one

If you've been thinking of getting a big inverter to go off grid with, this is probably it. Or if you want to take everyone on your street off grid too?

Are you sure there aren't SLA's in there it weighs 685kg :shock:
The manual suggests 450kg. :lol:

Seems like a good price for 3-phase power.

All you need then is the 10-15kW of solar.
So the short answer is NO but the long answer is YES.
