Sea Container as Off-grid Solar Power Plant - Somewhere in West Virginia
Outback Power electronics and Trojan batteries are stored inside. The battery bank can provide 13.3 kWh at 50% DOD. The inverter produces 120VAC with a max wattage of 3,500W. There is a Trimetric battery monitor included to aid in the maintenance of the system
The system was built for West Virginia State University as a power supply for an agricultural project near Nowhere, West Virginia (or is that, Somewhere). Wherever it is, it's out there and it's a long way to a utility pole.
