Home Defense Emergency Solar Kit.


Are your looking for a way to run your energy star rated refrigerator, a few led lights, charge your cell phones, make a pot of coffee and run a microwave, or steamer in the event of a utility outage?


The Home defense Emergency Solar Kit (HDESK-2 or HDESK-4) may be your solution.


Kit comes with:

HDESK - 2


(2) REC Solar 315 Twin Peak Monocrystalline Solar Panels.

​Array capacity 630 watts at standard test conditions. 

(1) Morningstar PS-MPPT 25 Charge controller.

(4) Deka 8G31 Deep Cycle Gel Batteries, 4,684 kWh total battery capacity at the C 20 discharge rate.

(1) Cotek SP-1500-124 Inverter, 1500 watt continuous capacity at 115 vac 60 Hz.

Lot 4/0 Battery cable with lugs

(50) Feet of 10 gauge, 2 conductor in a single sheath, sunlight resistant PV wire.

Lot 6 awg. THHN wire

​Lot 2 awg. THHN wire

(1) 15 ampere breaker

(1) 25 amp breaker



This kit is ideal to use in emergency utility outage situations. It will run your appliances up to the 4684 watt hour capacity of the battery bank. The solar energy harvest, annual average daily output in Alabama is 2520 watt hours, in a 24 hour day. The average solar energy harvest in the summer, in Alabama would be, 3780 watt hours. The average solar energy harvest in the winter, in Alabama would be 1260 watt hours. It would take about 3-5 days to recharge your battery bank, depending on the time of year, and load usage, from 0% state of charge to 100% state of charge (SOC). By staging the use of appliances, you can operate for days with this system, provided there is adequate sunshine available to recharge the batteries.

​Additional Notes:

Some people mount the solar panels on the south facing roof slope. Others mount them on the ground with 4" x 4" x 8'  garden timbers from your local home center. You can mount them on a dolly or 2 dollies using angle aluminum or strut rail, and this allows you to turn the array during the day to follow the sun, manual tracking for greater solar harvest output throughout the day.
