Legion Solar 4 - Permission Free Energy and Storage

$577,779

592

Legion Solar is a simple do-it-yourself solar system with battery storage and off grid power with artificial intelligence (AI). 


Solar energy is no longer an expensive complicated process. Install Legion Solar virtually anywhere.  

Legion Solar is designed for anybody with any skill level to setup. It's that simple!



Legion Solar works with your existing rate program to simply drive your consumption down. The result is simply a lowered electric bill.

You're also less likely to get charged the higher rates because you're less likely to enter into the higher priced tiers.

We created SolarRegulator™, an artificial intelligence computer to contain generated energy behind your meter where the utility company does not own. Energy production of each Micro-Inverter is controlled so that energy production is less than or equal to energy consumption allowing you to generate your own electricity unrestricted.

Utility company only sees less consumption from you, not a grid tied solar system. As a result, it is not necessary to seek interconnection permission pertaining to utility company approved grid-tied solar systems. 


We took all the short comings of traditional solar systems and designed a game changing new solution to outperform.


As you become familiar with Legion Solar, size up your system in stages. The larger the system, the more you'll offset and the more you'll save.  

  •  Stage 1 - Get familiar with Legion Solar and it's components with the Starter Set. Sets up in minutes and experience instant results.  
  •  Stage 2 - Scale your solar output with expansion sets to offset your daytime usage. 
  •  Stage 3 - Once your system is large enough to have excess energy to store during daylight, add expansion sets with BatteryCommander™ for night time consumption.
  •  Stage 4 - Add Off Grid Controller™ and an Off Grid Inverter so that you have emergency power during grid power outages.

Bluetooth interface allows you to monitor your energy production and consumption, check system health, diagnostics and more via the LegionSolar App for Apple/Android. Try it for fee today. Search "Legion Solar" in iTunes or Google Play.




Traditional solar systems have built-in costs such as resellers markups, installation labor, permits, sales reps, and other fees. Legion Solar is energy delivered straight to your door without the unnecessary costs giving you up to 3x faster ROI. 

Legion Solar makes financial sense and outperforms nearly all other investments.

Legion Solar also outperforms nearly all other forms of energy in long term energy value. It makes clean energy PROFITABLE for you with ZERO emissions.



To include Expansion Sets, click the “Manage your pledge" button that appears next to your pledge amount and then select "Change your pledge" on the following page. Then add the above amount to your base pledge. For example, to add 4 expansion sets, multiple the above amount by 4 and add that to your base pledge.


Legion Solar photovoltaic panels are 50% lighter and designed specifically for the Legion Solar Micro-Inverter to achieve an ideal system match for high efficiency DC to AC conversion. Rated for hurricane force winds, hail, and snow. High efficiency A Grade polycrystalline cells delivers unsurpassed price/watt performance with a 30 year service life.




Legion Solar micro-inverters are designed to achieve ideal system match for high efficiency DC to AC conversion. Up to 32 micro-inverters can be connected in a daisy-chain. Our micro-inverters employ maximum power point tracking (MPPT) technology to achieve maximum power output in full sun and partial shade conditions. LegionConnex™ wiring simplifies connectivity ideally suited for the do-it-yourself installer.


Micro-inverters outperform that of traditional central inverters due to no single point of failure. Each inverter cell works independently of each other to maximize energy production in partial cloud or shady conditions. 


  •  BatteryCommander connects in between the micro inverter and the solar panel. During daylight solar energy is used to supplement usage from your utility company and charge the batteries. At night, batteries supplement your usage enabling Legion Solar to completely offset all of your daytime and nighttime consumption. Compatible with standard Sealed Lead Acid Batteries (widely available and safer than Lithium), two deep cycle 12V batteries connected in series with capacity range 40-60Ah is recommended for each BatteryCommander branch.
  •  OffGrid Controller is a combiner hub for your batteries to multiply usable capacity. It detects when grid power goes down and automatically turns on power to the backup inverter to supply power to an off grid branch circuit where you can power all of your basic necessities in any emergency. When power goes out, lights and appliances connected to this branch automatically turn on. When power comes back, the emergency branch circuit automatically turns off.
  •  Off Grid Inverter is used to supply grid compatible AC power from 24V sealed lead acid batteries for use with appliances rated up to 3000 Watts. Have peace of mind for you and your family in any emergency.
