Connect all the positive leads, from all the panels, to the positive terminals on the combiner.
Run cables from the positive and negative terminals on the combiner to the positive and negative terminals on the battery bank. Connect all the positive and negative terminals on the batteries together.
Run a cable from the positive terminal on the battery bank to the circuit breaker, and then to the positive terminal on the inverter. Connect a cable from the negative terminal of the battery bank to the negative terminal to the inverter. If you are will be connecting other equipment the systems install a shunt, for the grounding wires, between the negative terminals of battery bank and the inverter.
Things You Will Need
- Solar panels
- Wiring cable
- Charge controller
- Deep cycle batteries
- Circuit breaker
- You can attach all the leads from the individual panels to a “combiner” that has several individual positive and negative terminals. Combiners are used for large arrays that would have too many leads to connect to one terminal.
