Sol-Ark: Solar Without Limitations
Meet Sol-Ark, the all-in-one hybrid solar power center that can handle anything you throw at it. Connect this 16 kW Sol-Ark + Fortress battery kit to the grid for an easy home battery backup solution, or install it as a fully independent system to deliver power to remote off-grid locations.
Not only does Sol-Ark’s cutting-edge hybrid inverter work in any solar application (grid-tie, off-grid, and battery backup systems), it can automatically detect connection to the grid and switch between on-grid and off-grid applications seamlessly.
This pre-designed 16 kW solar kit contains the core components you need to go solar on your own terms, including solar panels, a power center, racking, and batteries. Whether you install your own solar panels or hire a local contractor to assemble your system, GoGreenSolar’s kits give enterprising DIYers a way to save money on their solar project vs. outsourcing it to a turnkey solar provider.
(40) Phono Solar 400W Solar Panels
Phono Solar’s 400W solar panel contains 144 half-cut monocrystalline cells on a white backsheet with a silver anodized aluminum alloy frame. This solar kit contains (40) 400W panels, which will generate a total of 16,000 watts or 16 kW of continuous power.
- UL Listed
- 19.9% efficiency rating
- 5400 Pa snow load capacity ‒ designed to withstand harsh conditions
- Half-cut cells are more efficient, shade tolerant, and resistant to physical damage
- PERC (Passivated Emitter and Rear Cell) technology adds an absorbent layer to the back of the cell, which captures more light and improves efficiency
- Classified as a Tier 1 solar panel by Bloomberg NEF, a designation awarded to manufacturers with a reputation for quality and longevity in the solar industry
(2) 12 kW Sol-Ark Inverter / Charger Power Centers
Sol-Ark’s 12 kW hybrid inverter system is a highly flexible system that works equally well with or without the grid. When you’re connected to utility power, your system will roll back your meter and save you money on your electric bill. When the grid goes down, it detects the outage and effortlessly switches to backup power ‒ no user input required.
No grid? No problem. Sol-Ark is fully capable of meeting the rigorous demands of daily off-grid use. This kit contains everything you need to generate fully independent power in an off-grid environment.
Sol-Ark is an integrated power center, which means it contains the inverter, charge controller(s), breakers, and remote housed in a single unit. This fully integrated power center saves time and headaches during the installation process.
Sol-Ark’s products are well-documented, and they have a great resource center to guide you through the DIY installation process. If you get stuck, we’ve found their technical support team is among the most responsive and well-informed in the industry.

This kit includes sturdy Ironridge racking materials to mount your solar panels on your roof or a foundational ground mount structure. Contains enough racking materials to mount the 40 solar panels included in this kit.
Ground mount systems require the construction of a metal substructure to support the weight of the solar array. The metal pipe/tube, concrete and other materials needed to build this structure are not included in this kit; be sure to budget for these extra costs. As part of our permitting package, GoGreenSolar provides a full shopping list of materials which will need to be sourced from your local hardware store.
Add-on Option: Module Level Rapid Shutdown
For roof mount systems, the National Electric Code requires a rapid shutdown system to be installed for each individual panel in your array. Rapid shutdown allows the system to be completely de-energized at the flip of a switch.
Should a fire occur on your property, firefighters use the rapid shutdown switch to flush any live electrical current from the system, so they are not at risk of electrocution from the solar array when they are working on your roof.
While system-level rapid shutdown has been the standard in the past, many building authorities are moving toward requiring rapid shutdown modules for each individual panel on your roof.
Rapid shutdown is not required for ground mount systems, therefore it is not included in the cost of this kit. If you need to add rapid shutdown to your system, call us at (866) 798-4435 or request a custom quote online.
Save thousands of dollars
