This is not perfect because it was unbelievably hard to get the batteries in there, I wish I had cut out the upper stair in the stairwell and made a box under there.

The wire runs in to a steel chanel.

And out on the bottom

The wires etc are just temped in to test the setup. 2.9amps in heavy shade!

These are two pvl-144 panels from UniSolar. I cut them and re-soldiered the leads to connect the cut off parts. I was VERY relieved when I plugged it all in and it worked.
I looked at those Unisolar panels. Just haven't bought any yet. Glad to see they are working good.
I'm hungry!

Nice install.

You sure have a clean battery box compared to most I have seen.
