dalez...That's one step more detailed than I've gotten. Up until yesterday, I was still considering micro inverters vs power optimizers. These are now out as I can wire the panels in parallel for the same benefit. My goal is to make the system as efficient and effictive as I reasonable can and avoiding as many single points of failure as possible. Your recommendation may help do that.

Check out wholesalesolar.com, they sell panels by the palletload fairly cheap. Higher voltage house panels mostly. I'm wanting to run a 48v battery bank as well. The panels are mid to low 30v range, so you need a BOOST charge controller. Most are BUCK, as in they need panels with much higher voltage than the batteries. The MPT-7210 is a good example of a boost charge controller. But, it's only 10 amps, so you'd need one for each panel.
