Power, Heat, Water

Took my first baby steps into solar power this week.

I just got 100 watts in panels to start building a system for my workshop. It's not a lot I know, but it is a start. I'd like to eventually get a kilowatt of available power (1000 watts), and it will take a little while to do it, but it's a start.

They are always coming out with newer and better everything. It is great you have a foot in the door and a leg up on evaluating the new stuff as it comes out.

I started with a small 60 watt system.

Well, if things go well this coming month I'll be adding a couple more panels. One for sure, but hope for 2 or 3. Got to wait and see how the funds come to me.
