Last year I powered my camp entirely from the sun (with the exception of our ridiculous lighting on Pipe Dream). Here’s a quick description of the system.
|Panels||3 72-cell, 230 W, leased from BRS|
|Charge Controller||Morningstar TriStar MPPT 60|
|Inverter||Samlex 24V 2000W Pure Sine Wave|
|Batteries||2 SunXtender PVX-2120L 12 V 212 Ah|
|Electrical Panel||Midnight Solar MNE125ALT|
|Monitoring||Pentametric PM-5000-U and PM-102-USB, and a BeagleBone Black with LCD display and custom software.|
|Hardware||Custom-designed and built PVC rack, XRS Rails, associated mounting hardware. Also, breakers, outlets, grounding hardware, surge protection on panels.|
Just in case you wanted to know, the Section 422.16 (B) (3) of the California Electric Code for 2013 contains the following:
(3) Wall-Mounted Ovens and Counter-Mounted Cooking Units. Wall-mounted ovens and counter- mounted cooking units complete with provisions for mounting and for making electrical connections shall be permitted to be permanently connected or, only for ease in servicing or for installation, cord-and-plug-connected.
A separable connector or a plug and receptacle combination in the supply line to an oven or cooking unit shall be approved for the temperature of the space in which it is located.
So, if you wanted to replace your oven’s direct wiring with a plug (in case you were experimenting with something that required 240 V power), you’re good to go (assuming you do it right).
