Recently we have added a whole house generator to provide backup power. This makes the system quite unique as not too many folks have all three in one place. It is required to isolate PV system under outage conditions. To do this using standard Transfer Switch and yet meet the electric code, without violating Warranty was the tricky part
Enphase gives you on line per module monitoring. Very helpfull!
None so far.
Efficiency or Sustainability Improvements:
Radiant Heat, Tankless Hot water, 8 zones for heat, 3 separate A/C units for air conditioning.
Do you homework. Talk to folks who have PV. They all love to share their experience. Ask them what they could do differently if they were to start all over.
