Selecting The Appropriate Part #

Need help? Use the Vorp Energy Solar System Planning Tool here to quickly and easily determine which kit you will need.

Step 1: Determine the amount of power you will require to power your equipment. This is called the “Load”. The Load is calculated by Volts x Amps = Watts (Load)

Step 2: See the map below to determine which Zone the equipment will be installed in. Different Zones receive different amounts of Peak Sun Hours.

Step 3: Refer to the color coded table. Use your determined Zone and your Load in Watts to select the appropriate part # in the right column.

Peak Sun Hours

NOTE: This map shows the average Peak Sun Hours for the year. However, December and January consist of the shortest days of the year. Vorp Energy has designed the Remote Power Series to provide continuous power year round. To ensure uninterrupted power, these kits are sized as if it were December 21st every day of the year.
