  • 170 watt solar panel option

    Please help on this question, Does the 170 watt solar panel option come with an invertor by chance?

    I can tell you that we ordered a 300 watt solar system and it did not come with an inverter. I don't know about the 170 watt system. With our 300 watt system and 2 6 volt batteries we simply use the small plugin type inverters for using the TV or something small. We think if we had a large inverter running the microwave or coffee maker it would drain our batteries too much. We are fortunate to have the generator if we do need some extra juice. We just don't feel that in our current setup that a large inverter makes sense. Eventually we hope to upgrade to 600 watts, then we would install a large inverter and new batteries.

    You could call Northwood or talk to a dealer to see if an inverter is an option for you, especially if you plan to order a unit.

      $1400.00 for the 170 watt solar panel seems very high but if f I had to install later it would be pain to run wire etc.

          I don't think they offer it anymore it was an option for me.
          I think they switched to a rechargeable vacuum instead and now it looks like they don't offer any vac

          You might check what the dealer would charge to install solar vs ordering it from the factory.

            My dealer-installed 170 watt solar was right around $1,200 and there was no inverter included nor as an option on the 27-5L when we got ours. I installed my own after we got it home.

              It was an option when we ordered. We did not want a central vac, but through a special deal we got it free. Personally, I think the central vac is a bit of a pain and wouldn't pay for one. Just my opinion.
