Note on system design and procurement:

 
This note is intended to help system designers, purchasers and PV installers plan for a successful Harbor Smart Battery installation on a timeline. Please familiarize yourself with this list of tasks and their timing relative to your projected installation date.

Complete the following up to two weeks prior to installation:

  1. First, verify that the installation location meets all site requirements, per the installation manual.
  2. Familiarize yourself with all manuals and instructional videos.
  3. Design your system according to Pika approved guidelines.
  4. Place your order early: shipping-times for battery modules may exceed 10-days.

Diagram DescriptionDiagram Control NumberDownload LinkApplication Notes
Grid-connected Storage-system, PV-readySD0312Download

This design shows a Pika Energy Island with a Protected Loads Panel to provide backup power to loads (12 kW surge, 8 kW continuous). Condominiums and rented spaces utilize this design where accessibility for PV is not possible.

Storage-ready Grid-Connected SystemSD1111Download

This design shows a Pika Energy Island in the traditional net-metering configuration sourced by PV power. There are un-utilized DC inputs that may be utilized for additional PV or to add battery storage in the future.
This configuration is acceptable with most 200A residential services..

Basic Solar-plus-Storage System SD1312Download

This design shows a Pika Energy Island with a Protected Loads Panel to provide backup power to loads (12 kW surge, 8 kW continuous).

Storage-ready System with Line-side TapSD1113Download

This design shows a Pika Energy Island ready for net-metering sourced by PV power. There are un-utilized DC inputs that may be utilized for additional PV or to add battery storage in the future.

Whole-home Solar-plus-storage Backup System SD1315Download

This design shows a Pika Energy Island with an external Automatic Transfer Switch configured for whole house backup. Use this system configuration to provide backup power to a main service panel (12 kW surge, 8 kW continuous).


This configuration is acceptable for most 200A residential services.

Solar-plus-Storage System with Revenue-Grade Meter SD1318Download

This design shows a Pika Energy Island with a revenue grade meter (RGM) connected. Use this system configuration to provide backup power to a Protected Loads Panel (12 kW surge, 8 kW continuous).


This configuration is acceptable for most 200A residential services.

Solar-plus-storage System for Existing Generator SystemSD2317Download

This design shows a Pika Energy Island system for a project
with an existing generator. This design isolates the generator
from the inverter. This installation involves a line-side tap and
a manual transfer switch.

Multi-Inverter Solar-plus-Storage System with Line-Side Tap SD2324Download

This design shows two different Pika Energy Island systems installed at the same site. One system provides combined solar and storage, with backup power through the Protected Loads panel (12 kW surge, 8 kW continuous).


This configuration is acceptable for most 200A residential services.

Grid-connected Solar-plus-storage System Connected Via connected via Meter-mainSD2416Download

This design shows a Pika Energy Island with a Protected
Loads Panel to provide backup power (12 kW surge,
8 kW continuous) connected via a meter-main. CT’s shown are used to measure utility supply. They must measure all outputs of the meter-main or measure between meter and panel.

String Design for High-voltage PV ModulesSDHVPVDownloadThis drawing shows the recommended string design for High Voltage PV modules connected to a PV Link. Pika Energy defines these modules as having open circuit voltage (Voc) of 60V or greater and short circuit current of 7 or less.
**More modules may acceptable in warmer climates. For additional information, please contact Pika Energy at support@pika-energy.com.
