We have one of our new adjustable Solar Racks in place now supporting some of the new panels. This will allow us to adjust our Solar Panels for maximum efficiency based on the time of year and the angle of the sun.
We also now have a set dates for adjusting the panels. These are based on the Summer/Winter Solstice times and the adjust-ability of our Solar Racks
By our estimations, the house here at Arborlon was built about 20 years ago.We don’t know who built it, but as we’ve lived here now for two years, we’ve noticed how well they designed the aspects of the house to achieve natural heating and cooling. We have no need for heating or air-conditioning!
Many people who are looking to make the move off-grid often wonder about the appliances they can run with solar powered battery storage.
This is our experience…..
We picked up some new “used” Solar Panels today as part of the upgrading of our current solar system.
We knew we needed more generation power, and were planning on picking up at least another 10 250W panels(2.5kW)…..
Our “old” solar system has been in place for 15+ years, and I am still learning new things about it as time goes by. This is not helped by the lack of documentation and information on the system.
It’s seems previous owners just assumed it just worked.
In recent days with some cloudy weather, and increasing load on both the old and new solar systems, we have had only a small amount of power left in battery storage in the mornings.
Time to do something about that…
One of the major aims of our move to the Scenic Rim, was to be sustainable and self-sufficient. The house we now live in is 100% Solar, with battery storage….
