Recent mod added solar

I now have solar.

Morningstar MPPT 60 with remote panel
2x6v 200ah agm batteries
855 watts in solar panels
Victron bmv-700 energy monitor
1000 watt PSW inverter with remote on/off button

I do plan on adding 2 more batteries soon to give me 400ah or if I save up I might try getting 4 300ah 6v agm batteries.

It was cloudy and the solar was putting 30 amps into the batteries.

Nice setup! More batteries will be needed to store all the juice you are making.
I'm 800 watts into a FlexMax 60amp, 5 x 125ahr agms and a 5,000 watt inverter. My only problem now is I didn't plan the placement of the panel very well. I want to install an automatic dish antenna up there, but space is very limited and I can't put it anywhere it will cast a shadow on any of the panels. Looks like the dish may just have to be mounted separately. I hate it, but it's my own fault.
