The GT 3.18 is a 3,180 W Grid-Tie solar kit. This package uses top quality components from the industries leading manufacturers.
Solar Panels:Twelve black framed Upsolar 265 W solar panels provide up to 3,180 W under standard test conditions (1000W/M2). The Upsolar 265's are an excellent module with a black frame design for improved aesthetics. Upsolar's quality assurance staff works alongside their production partners to ensure the company's high standards are achieved at each stage of the manufacturing process. Supported by grade-A equipment, experienced workers and efficient manufacturing processes, unyielding commitment to quality helps make Upsolar one of the most secure PV investments on the market.
Racking:SnapNrack mounting equipment is used to rack and attach the solar panels to a composition shingle roof, in a 2H6W Portrait orientation layout, layout drawing is linked below (Contact SPS for a custom solution). The SnapNrack Series 100 UL Roof Mount System is an efficient, visually appealing, photovoltaic (PV) module installation system. Series 100 UL is listed to the UL 2703 Standard for Bonding, meaning that all system components have been certified by UL for electrical continuity, eliminating the need for additional grounding hardware. In addition to grounding and bonding, the roof mount system, Series 100 UL, is Class A Fire Rated when installed with Type I and Type II Modules (Q Cells panels are Type II). SnapNrack's UL 2703 Certification and Compliance ensures that SnapNrack partners can continue to provide the best in class installations in quality, safety and efficiency.
GT Inverter:DC power from the solar array is converted to household AC with an SMA 3000TL-US-22 Sunny Boy inverter. The Sunny Boy 3000TL-US represents the next step in performance for UL certified inverters. Its transformerless design means high efficiency and reduced weight. Maximum power production is derived from wide input voltage and operating temperature ranges. Multiple MPP trackers and OptiTrac Global Peak mitigate the effect of shade and allow for installation at challenging sites. The unique Secure Power Supply feature provides daytime power in the event of a grid outage. High performance, flexible design and innovative features make the Sunny Boy TL-US series the first choice among solar professionals. SMA inverter accessories such as the SMA Rapid Shutdown system, SMA Speedwire for web monitoring, and a kitted switch receptacle for the SPS feature are available as add-ons to the package, see related parts to the right.
Balance of System Components: Balance of system components, such as MC4 extension wires, proper fusing and junction box are included with this package. Site specific parts including home run wiring, utility meter, or sub panel are not included.
