Backup - How long can the batteries run the system?

How long can the batteries run the system?

Xantrex dealers can customize a system with any battery run time you need. The recommended battery bank size for a generator/recharged system is eight hours, so that you can keep your generator turned off all night. (This type of "quiet period" is a standard, field-adjustable feature on Xantrex SW Series systems.) Systems that include solar panels for recharging should have larger battery banks in order to take full advantage of available sunshine.
