Not really, it just means you have to run more heavy wire to carry the distances. If it's a long way, it's best to have batteries closer to turbine and panels, make long run in 120v. See, higher voltage requires smaller wire to carry current. So, a long run at 24v requires about 3 to 4x the thickness of copper to do same run at 120v. This one reason why the grid runs 400 kV, 700 MW circuit: 1 kA. That's 400,000 volts... Cool huh?
I'm not an electrician, but I have become an avid watt watcher and I find all this electrical stuff to be pretty fun to learn about. It's such a big part of our lives, lifeblood of so much we need to operate. This, like computer programming, webmastering, one of the many things I got heavily into to teach myself for fun. I have taught myself so many things reading and working hard at trying, doing, things that I find interesting. I'm sort of a mad scientist they say.
