      Hi Gus,

      Given the complexities of off-grid systems it would be best to get design support over the phone. Go ahead and call 916-625-0870 and select off-grid support. You’ll be able to do a much more in-depth design review that way.

      Best,
      Justin

      Hi Kirk – To clarify before we dig into the details, is the 70 amp load a 120 or 240 V and is it a continuous load? With a little more info, we can offer a few suggestions to make a system for you.

      Best,
      Justin
