I am getting an older 8HP Coleman generator 4000 watts output. . My proposed solution is to install isolated outlets directly from the generator output to certain areas in the home.


You need to consult a local electrician, if you do this wrong you can cause allot of damage. We can only guess as to the correct way to do this without being there and looking at the wiring setup.

Is this true or scam Government pays you to go solar.


The US government WILL NOT PAY you to go solar. There have been incentives on the state level to get people to install solar panels. Most of these have dried up but it is possible to find programs that will reimburse you a portion of the total cost but don't expect much. We live in Florida and in 2009 we were promised nearly 1/2 back if we installed. We got less than 10% when all was said and done and it took 2 years to get that.

I have solar panels that put out a little more voltage then they are rated at,and they keep faulting out my grid tie inverter.I need a resister to knock down the voltage about 8 volts, got any ideas?


I like to ask, is the voltage from the solar panel messure with some load connected or is open circuit, normally solar panels produce high voltage than the working system, the reasson for that is to have Amperes in of to charge the batery, these is related to the size and power generated by the panel.
No need a resistor or in any case use a voltage regulator to prevent over charge.

I have a 3000 watt magnum energy sine wave inverter/ charger. It is hooked up to 5 -12 volt glass matt batteries. the charger used to charge in bulk mode @ aprox. 80 amps then absorb charge and then went...


I'm sorry that I can't help you, but if you're in a hurry, you can visit the Magnum website at: http://www.magnumenergy.com/Service/Servicefront.htm and try to find your model's online manual and search troubleshooting advice or you can email customer service at
support@magnumenergy.com and they should at least be able to lead you in the right direction.

A few questions: Does this problem remain even when there is at least a 10+ watt load on your system? is your Magnum in a hot environment? Does your inverter feel extraordinaryily hot? Have your batteries outlived their lives? Have you cleaned all the connections? Even if they 'look' like they don't need it?

All the best to you.

I am building an off grid cabin but will need to meet code providing all electrical components as per the latest NEC. I will be using a 4100 watt generator for my initial power source but plan on...


I think he cost of the panel and breakers would be the cheapest thing on your list. Your 4100 watt genny is tiny for a whole house, and if you are planning on a solar set up, you will need to convert to dc, so, I take it your 4100 genny is used to charge the battery bank? Then the panel will not need to be anything but a small disconnect for the genny, basically one of those things that prevents the current from flowing back into the source, which you don't have. I would talk to the building dept., they may not want to take liability, and make you get a contractor to figure something out. All your appliances, and lights will be 12 volt, most motors are 12 volt anyway, they are just transformed to 12 volt from 110 current, and I don't think you will need breakers for 12 volt stuff. You could look at some camper supplies, boat stuff, they all run 12 volt appliances, and lights.

Solar panels come in different ranges of wattages.Add up the wattage of different solar panels you get e.g. Ten 100W solar panels will give you a 1Kw solar system.
