Hurricane Cat 5 Preperations-Urgent

Postby jwypick on Tue Sep 19, 2017 5:56 am

Im' in PR and Maria is coming to visit. Cat 5, 150+ mph winds. Panels are secured and guaranteed for 120mph. Not much I can do there.

My question is should I disconnect anything, just turn the system off when she gets close. I have a main switch I can turn off connection between power and house. We are off the grid.

Batteries are two rows of 4 in parallel.

Thanks

Ideally and to be safe you would want to disconnect the System completely AC & DC side
You may not get lightning but high winds can cause ground faults or shorts.

Thanks Jorge, I have a switch box with a neutral position, I'll put there when the times right.
