System Capabilities
This system can run most typical power tools used with wood construction and basic automotive or machine service. Typical tools include air compressor, 12 inch power saw (15 amp), router, portable band saw, hand grinder, bench grinder, small MIG welder, drills, miscellaneous lighting, and additional. System runs one small refrigerator / deep freezer and provides power to small living quarters (lighting, computer). System can run most typical load combinations without any issues, however aggressive use of tooling and issues with simultaneous loading should be realized. An upgraded inverter, or additional inverter added in parallel would boost simultaneous load capabilities.

Location is 100% off the grid. Workshop utilizes DC LED lighting systems to help relieve load burden from power inverter, and to ensure lighting is available in the event of an inverter failure.

All MicroGrid power systems are modular designs so that additional capacity can be added in the future if needed.
