  1. Wow.. Just when I thought I had my mind set on the correct inverter of choice I happen upon this thread.. Haha.. Yet again I'm torn between V and G. I'm a big fan of the ESS solution and wanted to go V initially , but the external mppt made my look elsewhere, since it doesn't fall in my budget of 30kish. The G seemed like the way to go but now I'm concerned about battery performance health and performance in the long term.
  2. Thanks so much! That already clears up alot of questions that actually came up while I was watching that vid! Cudnt figure out if what i have in mind is an ESS or not
  3. Hi there forumites. Ive been gathering info left and right for a system I want to put together, but have installed, DIY is NOT my forte. The basics are as follows.. 15kW/day load. Lookin for a hybrid inverter with built in charger that can keep the house alive during an outage (looking at pylontech batteries) and share the load between PV and the grid under normal circumstances (after the battery bank is charged). The idea is to eventually go off grid at a later stage in the future, but not in the next year or three, so over speccing the inverter a bit. I'm currently very fond of the vic
  4. Not a problem. I, myself grew up with ICQ and Groupwise. What an interesting time indeed. Dial-up... what a nightmare living on a farm in the Free State. 2Mb worth of spam downloading on Outlook then made you feel like a hacker. Im sorry to hear that the live chat did not deliver to expectation. That being said (just speaking from experience) ive found that if a discord is set up with proper channels to topics of discussion it can become very handy. Not to mention the search function that spans across all of the mentioned. Regardless, albeit new, i see myself being quite active here, and
  5. Cant really speak for Slack myself, ive heard alot about it, and used it about once or twice but that was it. It sucks paying for something. Let it grow by its worth and keep it free. Look where whatsapp is today
  6. Heh, no reason, like you said, its just another one on top of the many. I guess its just popular in the circles that i move in than the rest (technical / IT), so perhaps that's part of the motivation behind the question
  7. Not at all, thank you for your reply. If i may ill quote from some online resources, and supplement after : "Discord is a chat app, similar to programs such as Skype or TeamSpeak, or professional communications platforms like Slack. It supports video calls, voice chat, and text, allowing users to get in touch however they please." "Thanks to this breadth of functionality, users have also embraced Discord as a semipublic, forum-style community platform: Groups of players with common interests, such as fans of a particular game or studio, can create or join “servers,” both publi
  8. @admins Has anyone perhaps concidered setting up a discord server for Powerforum? I think it would be an enormous leap forward in terms of getting in touch with all the members in real time for support and general day to day talks. I'll help out if needed. Regards
  9. Hi there everyone. Being a total novice in the field but a quick study, countless hours of reading up and RFQs to the several first places that came up when searching has left me with quite alot of feedback from mainstream retailers. Sadly none of the quotes I've gotten live up to what I'm looking for in terms of pricing, especially after compiling countless lists of pricing I can buy all the main components seperate for at different places. This has left me with the option of sourcing all the main parts myself, and just getting someone to fill on the blanks like brackets, wires, D
  10. Anyone aware of something like this? Just talking in terms of perhaps choosing the main components and it would output the results in terms of uptime under certain load, etc. Perhaps even a bill of materials of common parts that need to be installed along with the main ones. Thank you
  11. Hey everyone. Pleasure to be here, have to say the site is loaded with info and knowledgeable people. Been a joy reading through all the things and realizing how absolute lost one can be. Finally taking the plunge to put a mostly all around solar backup / supplement solution in and doing all the research I can. Would love to pick some of your brains when there is time for it. Regards
