  • Nice. Curius why you did not go with micro inverters?
    By Colin, on April 26, 2013

  • I have no trees that will shade any of the panels, so I felt I didn't need to pay the extra expense of the micro inverters. My old system had a central inverter also and I never had any problems with it.

  • Am just starting to put together info on Solar & Wind Power. Looking into building my own, as well as purchasing, where to begin? Am I right that both of you purchased your systems?

  • You should start by looking at your electric bill and determining what size system you need to install. Your electric bill will show you how many kilowatts of power you are using. Use a years worth of bills to estimate your usage. In my case, I oversized the system a little bit so that I could use the air conditioning in the summer months. Shop around for you equipment to get the best price.

  • I need this as I have a bed cover on my truck. It is difficult to access the front of the bed near the cab even with the cover open. I'd like to try this.

  • Love your use of stock tanks! The tub is great, but your "house" is inspiring! Look forward to more of your projects.
