Weil McClain Boiler Question

I have a Weil Mclain GV-5 series 1 gas fired boiler. I want to replace the boiler fed indirect tank with an electric hot water tank to allow me the benefit of the recently installed solar panels. The gas bill keeps going up and our electric bills are locked in at a minimal cost. Can I cap the feed and return lines feeding the Indirect tank and disable aqua stat

It's do-able. It's not just capping off here and there.
I can see some major re-piping needing to be done.
Fresh water feed and boiler makeup come into storage tank and will need to be addressed.
