Hi Sio, A quick google search produced this video . You've probably seen it already but it may be worth contacting the owner via Youtube for some more details. The techies here should be able to provide more info but can't you start with a low top speed and range to get everything in place then upgr...

We are at the early stages of setting up a very small 12V solar PV system so that we will be prepared for possible future grid failures :!: I have a few PV setups around the place and I'm very happy with them, even up here in Scotland. I've been running the TV, freeview, laptop and lighting for abo...

Well done Floydster :D We would be interested to know how you get on with it. Presumably you have batteries to store the electricity. Hope the dogs get used to it fairly quickly. The dogs are used to it now, thank goodness. However the constant wind we have up here is showing no signs of ever appea...

Video of my latest project

Hi folks, I was starting to bore myself talking about installing a wind generator so at very long last it done :) What I didn't realise is that the four legged members of the household may not be as approving as some of the locals who are keen to see how efficient it is. Here's a short video of how ...

Re: Change to Forum Index Page?

I notice today that the Index page has lost its 'View messages since last visit' option which has been replaced with a 'View unanswered messages' link. Is this intentional or one of those mysterious gremlin thingies? Alternatively is there anywhere else we can access a 'new messages' function as th...

Something similar happened to me a few years back. The company (I can't remember who) eventually agreed the value after I sent them some recent ads. for the same model in a similar condition. I eventually went with Lancaster who provided me with a realistic agreed valuation for about a tenner above ...

Excellent stuff. I'd started putting a spreadsheet together exactly for this. Entered my info for a quick comparison and found a (very very) small niggle. I left the cable lenght to 12v box empty as I don't have any 12v devices, this generated the error "Input string was not in a correct format...

I got off comparatively lightly with a 240 mile round trip. Most national organisations don't expect everyone to turn up in person to the AGM. I'd love to attend the AGM but a five and a half hour drive (in a diesel van) is a tad too far. Last I knew my "local" rep was about a three hour ...
