    ROI for Home Wind Turbine.

    This is battery based off grid solution. The Turbine is mostly on brake during the day. It is allowed to take action at night. Also the Internet is up and down there. Im not sure how this affects the logs. The client is from the Karoo and seldom has Internet access. This is his Data with the Internet connection: http://profiles.pika-energy.com/users/144/dashboard I see a R250K wind Turbine as a charging battery to prevent your Large battery bank from Large Discharges. As the Turbine has a life of 22years +. I feel it could be of some use here :> Costs on Battery systems are pricey. Not at all trying to sell turbines. I just have an irrational love for them. haha! Video " :> Sincerely Jay

  15. Hi All - Hope great. @Chris Hobson Has some great ideas that we want to run by the community that will help condense some topics into one. Such as the Solar Thread has 2 or 3 sub-threads - Advanced solar and so on. He suggested we condense them into one. I really loved his idea. He also has some good ideas on the inverters threads and the Archived software. I am sure he will post tomorrow and share his great ideas. Anyone please feel free to also comment. Its all about making the forum as easy to use to allow members to find the closest route to sharing and learning. I am passionate about our forum and love working on it, also open for any ideas whatsoever. This forum belongs to all of you. Sincerely Jason

    LiFePo4 Cells 38120

    Wow. Great data and very well done! They look great. I have been very much looking for lithium batteries for our Solar Wifi highsite. Currently have a 120A victron Gel up there. The metal battrey box is well shaded by the solar panel. However the router in the cabinet reports temps of 28C on summer days. Not to great for the gelled battrey I'm sure :(. I have been very much looking for a drop in lithium replacement will be great for space saving as well. Keen to hear your thoughts. Awesome work again! Sincerely Jay

    Wind Turbine Overview

    Heya all. During sun up the wind turbine controller senses the battreys are 'full' due to the charging voltage of the solar controler. A lot of wind turbine manufacturers recommend this: Pre-regulation of Turbine. To solve this put the bulk and float voltages of the Turbine 0.2V higher than that of the Solar. J

    Battery lugs and terminals

    Heya. I watch a fair amount of solar youtube videos. Especially in the USA. It seams that the lugs are filled with solder to fill the gaps? Jay
