New MPPT Solar Controller

When I upgraded my solar a couple years ago I used a Bluesky Suncharger 30 which is a PWM type controller. It has worked fine but I was always wishing I had found an MPPT type controller which would fit my space. Now Bluesky has come out with an MPPT controller with the same footprint as the Suncharger 30. It is an SB3000I. Price seems to be around the high 2's but I found it for $215 shipped. Can't wait. PM me if you want my source.

Hi all, I've had a few inquiries on my source and I'm leaving in the morning on an rv trip so I'll go ahead and post the source here. I ordered from altestore.com. Their current price is $215.90. They have a 5% off code thru the 11th. (LDSALE17) That will get you enough discount to cover shipping charge. Good luck.
Bill

If you want a better product at a better price shop at http://www.thepowerstore.com/

Lowest prices by far.
Victron Smartsolar 100/50 MPPT
- InverterSupply - $335
- ThePowerStore - $238

If their site doesn't have what you are looking for, you can contact their sales team to order and get price. I did this with all the latest Victron components.

Great service and the LOWEST prices.

Finally got around to installing the Solar Boost 3000I and want to post one warning: Although the faceplate is the same size as the Suncharger 30, the Solar Boost requires a slightly larger hole so be prepared to hog out the hole in your mounting panel if you're doing the same replacement as I did.
