All is good on the homestead. Been busy running wires, and constantly thinking, and making changes to the next project. Want everything to be in order before the interior walls go up. Also started growing started a few experiments growing potatoes and onions. Will get to that later.
Installed 3 260 watt panels on the roof which on a good day produce about 50 amps of juice. Heres a few more pics of the rest of the system
New inverter by aims. 2000 watt with 6000 watt surge and auto generator start feature. Will run just about anything I can throw at it.
Even runs the A/C but battery bank still isnt big enough for such a load. Will work great once I have a larger generator to handle such loads, but a fan has been doing the trick to keep cool for now.
Not the cleanest looking set-up. Added 2 more batteries to the set up that I removed from "The Turtle" giving me around 690 amp hours. A insulated battery box is in the near future.
Solarmate 60 amp MPPT charge controller mounted above the breaker box
Handy lil gauge monitors the system picked it up for about 20 bucks on amazon.
Lights on! Bathroom is just about framed up, and if you look very close the shower faucet and handles are up and running now I just need to get a shower stall installed.
Ginger not liking the crows on the roof. Also a rabbit has moved in under the container, which makes for the perfect babysitter Ginger never leaves the side of the container. Of course she still gets long daily hikes up in the forest.
Thanks for visiting! Good Day!
