Creating power for your home, off grid.
Emphasis on nuts-n-bolts, hands-on projects.
As a result, I've updated my "Solar System" page with photos and information about the new installation.
For those of you who wish to aviod MEGO as a result of long descriptions about esoteric electrical equipment, here's the short story:
The main 24 volt system with 18 Siemens SP-75 PV panels, all racked up in the front yard.
The power control cabinet, moved from the city installation and connected to the newly re-racked panels.
I'm keeping a close eye on the utility meter, and so far, I've purchased only 18 kilowatt hours (about $1.70 worth) of utility power over the course of the last ten days. That may change tomorrow, as we are going into a spell of clouds and rain, but it's sure nice to see some power coming out of the sky for a change.
