You might be wondering - is this really all I need? 

The short answer is yes. However, our HBK kits are designed with the bare minimums in mind. Just enough battery and panels to get you up and running.

Our HBK solar kits will give you reliable off-grid power in:

  • Emergency situations
  • Weekend getaways to your remote property
  • Casual power needs in a shop or outbuilding

These kits are also great for running 240V appliances in short bursts, such as:

  • Well pumps
  • Industrial equipment
  • Dryers and more

It's important to note that we highly recommend adding more solar panels and more batteries to our HBK solar kits down the road as you may need more juice to make it through peak power usage and/or cloudy periods. 

For a system like this, we would recommend adding more solar panels and batteries if you're planning to use this for more than emergency backup, weekend getaways or casual power needs.

What Can This Kit Actually Power? 

  • HBK-5.1 is a mid-size off grid kit that has 1 x 5.3Wh Lithium power wall (you choose), giving you 5,300 watt hours of useable battery capacity.
  • Plus the 2,160 watts of solar panels that will be generating an additional 2.1kw of power per hour while the sun is shining. 
  • If we assume there's roughly 6 good sun hours in most states, the solar panels will produce around 12.6kw of power each day (or 378kw/month).

We have sized these with the bare minimum in mind, meaning we base the battery size on providing 15-18 hours of consistent run time in order to get us through the night and to when the sun comes back up the next day.

Because of this, we would recommend adding a backup generator to your system. All of our HBK's have the ability to hook up to a gas generator which can then recharge your lithium battery bank, extending your power and improving your reliability. 

Easily Expandable. Totally Stackable. Highly Recommended.

Easily expand the kit down the road with more solar panels, more battery AND more output as every component in our HBK kits are expandable and stackable.

These all in one inverters can handle plenty of solar panel input and you can stack the inverters for more output and more solar. 

The power wall batteries are also easily expandable and connect in parallel so you can build the ultimate system as you go!

    What Does Off-Grid Mean? 

    Great question. It means this system does not tie in with your local power grid / utility company. So there's no "selling" excess power back to the power company. Off-grid means your system operates 100% independent of the grid. Any excess power you're making during the day goes right into your lithium battery bank included with the kit so that you can run your home / RV / cabin / shop / business all night long when the sun isn't shining. 

    Can I use grid power to charge the batteries and/or tie this system in with my on the grid home though?

    The short answer is yes. Our HBK kits come with all in one inverter/chargers, meaning you can suck power out of the batteries as well as throw juice back into the batteries via a generator OR any form of AC shore power (aka your grid tied home). When it comes to backing up your home or tying it in to your existing electrical system, you'll need to work with an electrician to get some form of transfer switch that will allow you to go back and forth between your homes grid tie power and your off grid battery backup.

    Is Off-Grid Better Than Grid-Tie? Or Do I NEED to be tied to the grid? 

    This is a good question and it really depends on who you ask. Most of our customers are looking to gain "grid independence". They don't want to rely on the local power company to keep their lights on and food cold, especially during emergencies. When you install a grid-tied solar system, this means that if the grid goes down... Your solar power on your roof is useless. You NEED batteries on your system to be considered off-grid. 

    There's a lot more involved with a grid tie system (think permitting, AC coupling, remote monitoring etc.) which typically makes these types of solar power systems much more expensive. Whereas off-grid solar systems require a lot less bells and whistles and are much easier to install. 

    Sometimes off grid is the only option as well. If you have a remote cabin, RV, Skoolie or any other form of off grid property our complete off grid solar kits are a great power solution!

      Off grid system, working great

      We installed this system on our ranch, 100% off grid, we are learning this solar living, we added at big battery, works great in the spring, summer and fall months. Winter takes some doing due to inversions and cloud covers, had a system installed so that we can charge by generator which takes a 1/2 day or so. Had great support from the sales and technical teams, will buy again

      Garage Power

      I installed this kit with the Big Battery option. Install was easy and so far everything has been working well. I ran my solar panel cabling into my garage through an RV cable gland and mounting plate for dutch lap siding, and it has been great. I have only had two issues thus far:

      1.) When trying to use my 1.5 HP air compressor (with it being the only item in the circuit), the unit instantly goes into overload protection; which is odd because I can run that same compressor of off a standard 15A wall outlet and over a 100 ft weedwhacker cord with no problems. I would think that having MORE capacity would allow the same performance if not better. A different, smaller pancake air compressor works fine, so maybe adding a soft start will resolve the problem, or maybe I have some setting in the inverter that needs more adjusting.

      2.) The battery voltage readout on the battery itself has failed and no longer is displaying anything. Kind of disappointing since the whole thing has been only installed about 2 months. I am able to read the battery level by scrolling to that menu item on the inverter, but it would be nice for it to be working as intended. Not sure if I need to contact Big Battery or SSK for the warranty part.

      Solar Workshed

      My overall experience with ShopSolarKits has been great. Even with the current supply chain issue all of my equipment arrived in a timely matter and came in very good packaging. Everything arrived in excellent condition. My setup came with the 24V Hawk battery from BigBattery.

      After a year of researching and analyst paralysis I finally took the plunge. This is my first attempt at a solar based electric system and I am very impressed with the ease of setup and overall experience. The documentation is excellent and shows you all the major steps necessary to get up and running. It took me 2 weekends to get everything installed and running (by myself) but could definitely could get setup faster with help. Now I can pretty much run whatever I need out there with dragging a 100' extension cable from the house.

      I will absolutely purchase from this company again.

        What Does Off-Grid Mean? 

        Great question. It means this system does not tie in with your local power grid / utility company. So there's no "selling" excess power back to the power company. Off-grid means your system operates 100% independent of the grid. Any excess power you're making during the day goes right into your lithium battery bank included with the kit so that you can run your home / RV / cabin / shop / business all night long when the sun isn't shining. 

        Can I use grid power to charge the batteries and/or tie this system in with my on the grid home though?

        The short answer is yes. Our HBK kits come with all in one inverter/chargers, meaning you can suck power out of the batteries as well as throw juice back into the batteries via a generator OR any form of AC shore power (aka your grid tied home). When it comes to backing up your home or tying it in to your existing electrical system, you'll need to work with an electrician to get some form of transfer switch that will allow you to go back and forth between your homes grid tie power and your off grid battery backup.

        Is Off-Grid Better Than Grid-Tie? Or Do I NEED to be tied to the grid? 

        This is a good question and it really depends on who you ask. Most of our customers are looking to gain "grid independence". They don't want to rely on the local power company to keep their lights on and food cold, especially during emergencies. When you install a grid-tied solar system, this means that if the grid goes down... Your solar power on your roof is useless. You NEED batteries on your system to be considered off-grid. 

        There's a lot more involved with a grid tie system (think permitting, AC coupling, remote monitoring etc.) which typically makes these types of solar power systems much more expensive. Whereas off-grid solar systems require a lot less bells and whistles and are much easier to install. 

        Sometimes off grid is the only option as well. If you have a remote cabin, RV, Skoolie or any other form of off grid property our complete off grid solar kits are a great power solution!

          Off grid system, working great

          We installed this system on our ranch, 100% off grid, we are learning this solar living, we added at big battery, works great in the spring, summer and fall months. Winter takes some doing due to inversions and cloud covers, had a system installed so that we can charge by generator which takes a 1/2 day or so. Had great support from the sales and technical teams, will buy again

          Garage Power

          I installed this kit with the Big Battery option. Install was easy and so far everything has been working well. I ran my solar panel cabling into my garage through an RV cable gland and mounting plate for dutch lap siding, and it has been great. I have only had two issues thus far:

          1.) When trying to use my 1.5 HP air compressor (with it being the only item in the circuit), the unit instantly goes into overload protection; which is odd because I can run that same compressor of off a standard 15A wall outlet and over a 100 ft weedwhacker cord with no problems. I would think that having MORE capacity would allow the same performance if not better. A different, smaller pancake air compressor works fine, so maybe adding a soft start will resolve the problem, or maybe I have some setting in the inverter that needs more adjusting.

          2.) The battery voltage readout on the battery itself has failed and no longer is displaying anything. Kind of disappointing since the whole thing has been only installed about 2 months. I am able to read the battery level by scrolling to that menu item on the inverter, but it would be nice for it to be working as intended. Not sure if I need to contact Big Battery or SSK for the warranty part.

          Solar Workshed

          My overall experience with ShopSolarKits has been great. Even with the current supply chain issue all of my equipment arrived in a timely matter and came in very good packaging. Everything arrived in excellent condition. My setup came with the 24V Hawk battery from BigBattery.

          After a year of researching and analyst paralysis I finally took the plunge. This is my first attempt at a solar based electric system and I am very impressed with the ease of setup and overall experience. The documentation is excellent and shows you all the major steps necessary to get up and running. It took me 2 weekends to get everything installed and running (by myself) but could definitely could get setup faster with help. Now I can pretty much run whatever I need out there with dragging a 100' extension cable from the house.

          I will absolutely purchase from this company again.
