Build a power wall

We are planning to create a home made open sourced power-wall.

We want to connect  6 solar panels we already have to a bunch of ups batteries we already have and use this system as backup 48v power source.

As a stretch goal it would be nice if we could also connect this system to the grid (without feeding back to the grid) (using the hardware currently in the ups's to do the 240v ac to 48v dc conversion) and have it automatically use the batteries during peak hours and when the grid is inaccessible, and use the grid during non peak hours and when the sun is not shining and the batteries are low)

    Hi Jens,

    thanks for your  submission! 
    Can you please provide some more details about your idea. Maybe some diagrams or pictures, how much TAPAS boards are needed and where they are used etc.
