Well done Floydster
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 appearing again
I have 6x 110Ah batteries to store the power and a second consumer unit powering additional sockets and lights from the solar and wind. The solar is good from about May to September and fingers crossed the wind generator will provide enough during the winter.
And....there hasn't been any wind since this was taken.
Looks great, sadly the vid was very jumpy but I think thats my end
So what sort is it and what are you using for storage and regulation
It's a cheapo FD300W
with built in controller and dump load. I'm aware of the advantages and disadvantages but I've learned loads doing this and the infrastructure's in place in case I decide to upgrade.
I've a pure sine wave inverter with a solar charge controller (good for 20A) built in which the large panel is connected to. The smaller panel has it's own controller which I like as it has sockets for 3V, 6V and 12v outputs.
Here's a link
