I got so much extra Power now...

Postby martshmoo on Fri Jul 13, 2012 1:37 am

COMICAL, PLEASE GIVE YOUR OWN VERSION!


I thought we could start a bragging thread here:

I GOT SO MUCH EXTRA POWER:

I am going to turn on my 50 Gallon solar/electric water Heater and fill my pool with it!

and Then give free wi-fi to the whole mountain!

then, I am going to light up the entire 2 and a half acre perimeter!

LOLOL

What you gonna' do?
"Why don't we all turn off our TV's at the TV instead of the Remote?"

"Then in the morning, we would use the TV to turn it back on, and we all Know where the TV is but no one Knows where the remote is!"

Save some power...

Hi martshmoo
In the Summer am a bit short on PV, as the PVs are set to the Winter angle, and discovered A/C a few years ago.
So, need to reduce the tilt AND about double the array size.

Please send some excess power my way, THANKS, Vic

I feel that i can only bring my system to table. I don't yet have a power problem but a glut. During day i am producing 3.2k at 70amps. This keeps batterys fully charged most times just floating. On Saterdays my wife goes out of her way to see if she can use up the excess. Washer, all ights running, coffie pot, TV, office computor running for no reason. But I have yet to not have enough power on any given sunny day. :grin:

I invited the neighbor bring his Chevy Volt over to suck up some of my excess power so I did not feel so compelled to run so many 500w work lamps during the day....

I thought an old metal tub would be a nice place for my batteries. It provides a leak proof containment system as well as some protection for any explosions that may happen.

Does anybody know how to set the float? I have filled and drained that tub so many times but they always sink to the bottom.

Also,
Is equalise done with baking soda or Epsom salts?
