Morningstar and OutBack Power’s solar and storage installations electrified remote homes in Mexico. Because the solar array was so large, the team found it was easier and less expensive to install in 600V. The Morningstar equipment, along with two 8-kW OutBack Radian GS8048 inverters, worked with the solar to power water pumps, TVs, fans and lighting.
