Cash or check preferred.  Credit Cards purchases will be charged a processing fee of 3.5%

Federal and State tax credits/deductions can pay for 50%-70% of the cost of the system.


The Solar Max 6000-12 Expanded is as large as our portable generators come. A heavy duty portable solar generator capable of powering most household appliances and home tools. The 6000 watt pure sine wave inverter is split phase capable at 110/220vac and is capable of an 18,000 watt surge for 20 seconds. (Scroll down for detailed inverter specifications).
As a pure sine wave inverter it's capable of powering computers, recharging lithium battery devices, running CPAP machines, professional audio/video equipment or tools with a variable speed capability and most everything* else at or less than 6000 watts like most fridges, freezers, TV's, furnace blower motors, some well pumps (*Read detailed inverter specification for amp. information)
This inverter is powered by six 12 volt 120 Amp hour AGM batteries connected in series to the 24 volt inverters.
Capable of providing 4.32 useable Kilowatt Hours (KWH).
This system comes with twelve 235 watt solar panels for 2820 watts of sun power. With double the panels of the Solar Max 6000, your batteries will recharge in half the time and you'll have that much more energy to use during bright sunny days.
Housed in a wood lined steel box attached to a heavy duty cart with a 1000 pound carrying capacity. The Solar Max 6000-12 expanded more than packs in the power while still remaining portable.

Split Phase Inverter 6000 watt Pure sine wave inverter

This split phase inverter is capable of producing 110/220vac. It will work virtually anywhere in the world, with the ability to auto detect 50 or 60 hz.

The built-in charger allows for you to use your existing grid power to maintain a charge on your batteries. It also includes an Auto-Gen start that will tell your Auto-Start Compatible generator to turn on and provide power for your secondary 24 volt charger.

This whole home power inverter is great for your emergency battery backup for when the grid goes down with an unnoticeable transfer time of 10 milliseconds, or for use as a standalone off-grid system. Kill your power bill and save the earth with this inverter charger. Use this inverter in your coach bus RV, large toy hauler or fifth wheel. It will provide you with plenty of power for your mobile home, boat house or yacht. No sense in dealing with noisy diesel engines when you can have quiet, efficient and free power provided by the sun.

No matter where you are on the globe, you can use this inverter charger. It will accept power from any grid system, on 50 or 60hz. If you're looking to keep the lights on and food fresh while the rest of the neighborhood is in the dark, look no further than the AIMS 6000 Watt Low Frequency Inverter. Prepare for the worst with the best.

Note: As the Solar Max 6000 is a 24 volt system, 24 volts of battery power is required. This means two 12 volt batteries will be required as one will not work. Extra batteries can be plugged in outside of the box however this will reduce the portability of your unit. If you'd like to remain portable, the Battery Bank on Wheels with 6 additional batteries is recommended. As a general rule for our Solar Max systems, 1 solar panel can keep 2 batteries charged.

Make your solar panels 10%--35% more efficient

Solar panels with the patented PLT Enhancement treatment -- have been shown to produce 10%--35% more energy than untreated panels. Average energy improvement within 24 hrs of treatment is 13%. After 6 months energy improvement increases up to 35%.

  • Make more energy...better return on your investment ◦ ​(For example, 10 panels at 240watts ea, 2400 watts combined, at just a 25% improved efficiency would produce 600 more watts every hour.)
  • Save $$ on cleaning costs...(50%--75+%)
  • 20 year warranty!
  • Not only does the treatment produce more energy from your panels, but it also helps clear atmospheric pollution. ​Things like Carbon Monoxide, Benzene, Nitrogen Dioxide, Hydrocarbons, smog, etc.)
  • Pays for itself often in less than a year. (Depending on how dirty an environment your panels are in and/or how much sun they get.)

HOW DOES IT WORK: The treatment uses two specialized formulas (one is patented and the other is proprietary) to permanently bond a nano thin layer of Enhanced Titanium Dioxide Nano Particles to the surface of the solar panel. This layer of Titanium Dioxide particles, when exposed to the sun, helps the solar panel absorb photons from the sun, immediately increasing it's efficiency up to 13%. Additionally, the photocatalytic action of the patented TiO2 formula eliminates static electricity from the surface of the panel. This has two effects: First, it is static electricity that attracts and holds dust, dirt, oil, pollution, etc. to the panels glass surface. With no static electricity... the panel stays cleaner longer. Secondly, when water hits the panel, the photocatalytic action eliminates the surface tension of the water droplet. Water surface tension & static electricity is what holds the water to the panel. With no attraction, water just flows off quickly and easily, carrying "gravity held" dirt and pollution along with it. This action is called "hydrophilic" as opposed to the normal "hydrophobic" beading/sticking action of water. (For more information on the patented TiO2 formulations and how they work, go to www.PURE-LIGHT.COM)
