Man Installs Solar Electricity, Uses Many Tubular Batteries, 8 Panels, Pumps Water with Them

  • A man using solar energy in his house has spoken about how property manages power with tubular batteries
  • The man demonstrated the voltage his heavy loads draw from his battery and how each batteries work together
  • Many people who saw his solar setup wanted to know more about his panels and what is best between lithium and tubular

A Nigerian man using solar electricity in his house has made a video on the proper management of tubular batteries.

He (@emmyinverters) used a volt meter to demonstrate the charge his pumping machine draws whenever it is only solar.

Apart from his pumping machine, his solar system powers his refrigerator and other household appliances.

A solar user, Ajuwon Aanu, who runs a system powered by tubular batteries is looking towards switching to lithium. He said:

"From what I have learnt, lithium will enable me to use my appliances longer as you can drain it more than tubular batteries."

Laittechnologies asked:

"Why are you charging a 24v system with 132 voltage though?"

Mr_odogwu said:

"Hmmm...Full load on a 7.5kva invrter (4 ba3), hw many A is being pulled frm d ba3? B4 ur ba3 die frm givin A, ur invrter will die 1st. Deres even 10kva (4 ba3) half load will draw up2 100A."

He replied:

"8pcs of 280w panels. connected 4s series, 2 parallel."

noCode Lad wondered:

"Why not turn off other essentials before turning on the pumping machine? Or better still get a higher capacity bank if you can afford?"

Meanwhile, earlier reported that a Nigerian man who is very passionate about solar energy shared his 8-year journey of going green.

The man said the thirst for energy independence made him conscious of how many watts his home appliances consume.
