Hope that clears things up
No, this would end catastrophically. Doing something like that is illegal, not just against building codes, but actually illegal in every US state. And there are a lot of reasons why. Lots.

The first reason is that it's stupidly dangerous, like Darwin instant consequence kind of stupid.
It's dangerous to you because it could create an electrical fire in your house wiring, to say nothing about destroying your charging controller.

To 'plug' it up to your house wiring with a double male plug would be inherently dangerous. (That type of cord is literally referred to as a "suicide cord") Touch the electrified male prongs, and well you won't have to worry about saving on your electric bill much anymore.

If someone were to 'plug in' the power cord from an inverter into a wall outlet, the very best possible scenario is that the power inverter will quietly burnout, hopefully at a fuse, and isolate itself from the house wiring without any other loss and the person who did it realizes what a horrible mistake they just made. That's the very best case.

It's also extremely dangerous if done during a power outage because it would energize your house wiring, and also carry that current out to the transformer and down the electrical lines potentially injuring or killing an electrical line worker who is trying to do repairs. This has happened many times unfortunately, and several electrical line men have been killed because of an improperly wired generator or other energy system. It is very illegal for this reason, and homeowners can and are arrested and charged criminally with manslaughter, to say nothing of the civil suits that follow. Ignorance is never a defense when working with electricity.

The best use for a photovoltaic kit for the average homeowner is to use it as a completely separate electrical system from house wiring. Charge your phones from it, have it light a light, or run a fan, take it camping, whatever, but don't try to integrate it into your home electrical system in any way by yourself. If you want to have a real solar photovoltaic system to power your home, your first stop is to talk with an electrician that specializes in solar photovoltaic electrical systems.
Hey guys I originally posted this deal. I'm kind of new to this posting thing, how come when I post a deal sometimes someone else takes it over and reconfigures things then it says the deal was by them? how does this happen or what am I doing wrong? thanks for any help in advance

I'm not 100% sure to be honest. Looks like it's

HP = 3/4
Volts = 115/230
KW = .55
RPM = 3450
Max load amp = 11.0/5.5
HZ = 60
SF= 1.0

Thanks for the help

That would depend on your battery bank and your inverter

I think you would need several panels, 0.55kw is 550watts, These panels are 100 watts.

Looks like it was first posted at 4am and you posted the same deal after 8am, So they moved your post over to this one.

But it also suggests that it maxes out at 1265 watts (115 x 11)
