Charge your Electric Vehicle from Solar. This kit is designed for charging your car at night, it has NiFE batteries to store the solar power and then charge your EV from the stored solar energy. It can be configured as a hybrid system so that any additional power would come from the grid, or as an off grid system to charge your EV in remote areas.
IRFTS Shadow Solar mounting frames are compatible with all types of 60 cells - 6" PV modules fitted in a landscape orientation, and can be used for ground or wall mounted installations. It is also compatible with optimisers and micro-inverters.
The well-designed configuration is a watertight solution that allows a high level of ventilation to maximise the efficiency of the PV installation and is the most complete solution currently available on the market.
Ideal for energy production and sun protection, the mounting structure has a range of applications for residential, commercial, public, agricultural and industrial building such as a carport, canopy, patio awning, lobby entrance, bike shelter etc.
The anthracite grey aluminium profile includes a rainwater harvesting network, under-panel protection and optional panel side flashing. The structure also allows modules to be fitted easily from underneath, reducing H&S risks with installation.

Width 986mm to 1001mm
Depth 30mm to 46mm
What is the roof pitch of the carport?

NOTE – Please check with the module manufacturers installation manual that your chosen panel can be installed at this inclination.
How is it fixed to the ground?
Each leg will need to be buried in to concrete footings to secure to the ground
Please ensure you adhere to the manufacturers installation instructions
Do you need to inform planning or building control?
This can vary according to area so always check with the local departments to ensure compliance
Are there any additional options?
We sell additional flashing covers for the sides of the modules (not the carport) which are available at an extra cost

Invented over 100 years ago by Thomas Edison as a non-polluting and non-consumable alternative to Lead Acid Batteries using no heavy metals! Now manufactured once again worldwide after lead acid battery companies closed Edison's Plant in 1972.
We have sourced NiFe at a competative rate at a little over double our cheap lead acid range and similar to our Rolls battery prices. This makes them a very viable option for long term off grid solutions.
You need 10 cells to make up a 12V bank, 20 cells for a 24V bank and 40 cells for a 48V bank
They have low operation cost, low self-discharge, long cycling life and environmental-friendly. They can withstand deep discharge, wide temperature variations, mechanical & electrical abuses and still show excellent and reliable performance over a long period. The operation life of solar Ni-Fe batteries is 30-40 Years, the working temperature range can be -40°C to 60°C, which is also the longest life battery for the PV system.
For more information on the advantages of NiFE batteries please read our info here
Optional Auto Watering System
Optional LED fluid level indicator
These have a long lead time as they are made to order and shipped over to us, please allow 2 months for delivery, but for a battery that will out live any other battery if your deciding to go down this route its definitely worth the wait and this is the reason we can keep the prices low.
Designed for rough ambient conditions for stand alone or grid back up operation. Rated to give a power output of 3.0kW or 4.4kW for 30 min.
IP54 protection to allow outdoor installation if required.
High efficiency (>95%);
Low standby & idle consumption (25W/4W);
Operating temperature range of -25 to +60 deg C.
OptiCool system ensures high power in high temperatures by cooling the encapsulated transformer but keeping air ventilation away from coated circuit boards & electronics to ensure high protection for humid or salty atmospheres.
Inverters are used with the Sunny Island Remote Control which gives a single point of operation. One Remote Control is required per cluster of up to three inverters and includes integrated MMC/SD memory card reader to enable updates, transferring of parameter settings, for storing error/events lists, or data logging.
In single-phase systems only one SI3.0M-11 or SI4.4M-11 can be used. Three-phase systems can be achieved using a cluster of three SI3.0M-11 or SI4.4M-11 inverters, multi-cluster systems are not possible with these inverters.
For larger single-phase or multi-cluster 3-phase systems please see the Sunny Island 6.0H/8.0H
