Here's a plan; We Kill The Batrman. I mean, we blame my Sister. I'm moving to L.A. Looking at Fairhope or northern Mobile.

I'm moving back into the 'Grounds quick as I can. I'm not about to be in another yard again, I'll starve and walk first. This is bloody ridiculous.



ETA: Fixed tags.
ETA Part Duex: Gah, did I say Sweet Water? I meant Fairhope. Sweet Water is WAY too far north.

.. if you move them further apart to get that front one out of the shadow of the rear one you will get much better performance out of your solar setup .. most panels virtually shut down with even minimal shade or shadows blocking them ..

Yup! My Housemate (the one that owns the house) is MtF. This is really normal for me, people like hir tend to flock to me for some reason.

I read about that, the minimal shade thing. My question is what's the difference between the Panels that Herr Malkieri has and the Panels that Herr Gyrkin has? Besides the style, is one type preferable? Which one would function better in shade vs the Sahara Sun I have currently melting my brain?

So much to learn! Gah!

In the middle of the winter when the sun is the lowest that is an issue, but the rest of the year it's not. In the winter the solar panels are only used to trickle charge the batteries since I'm not using it, so it's not an issue. Thanks for the tip none-the-less.

While I don't have an answer to your question I can tell you where mine came from. They came off a railroad application. They had several bullet holes through them and needed some repair. A friend who works for the railroad gave them to me. It's hard to argue with free.

OOoooooooh, my mate's big brother works for a Railway outside of Wolverhampton. Kinda doubt he could send me the cells, though, dunno how UK cells would line up with US power hauls (...something ELSE to research for grins and giggles! WHEEEE~!).

But, yeah, can't argue with free!
(Well, ya could, but then it really depends on what's free...)

Re: Mounting/securing solar panels on roof

And don't forget that when ambient temps climb too high, the PV panels start shutting down.
