This system started out as a split phase system and is now fully 3phase to run all the printing equipment including paper cutter, folder and presses.  It has almost 1500Ah @ 24v of Hoppecke gel batteries. 3 Outback VFX3024Jseries inverters and 2 Midnite Classic 200 controllers splitting the array into 2x 1800watts.

There is a 34Kw Cummins that used to run 8hrs a day but now only 1hr for pumping water for the rest of the property.
