Hi 49er,

Found them, nice series of solar installation with good info.
Nice piece of land you got there to, do you have like an veggy, fruit section and some chickens for eggs?
You should, it will provide you with good fresh resource and make your wallet even happier.

Hi All

Well I didn't check my camera and it got set to pic and not movies and in the bright sun I couldn't tell totally my fault. So all we have is pic for burying the cable. The rest is on video.


piping from the house



plastic conduit ready for the trench



I went with 1" ID for the 4 GA wire

Hi SD3T

Here is the pic you want for a clearer view



+ BOX and the second fuse is not used yet waiting for the second panel bank.



- BOX





ANGLE BRACKETS

The fuses for the inverter load is inverter watts / 12 volts = amps needed for the fuses

The fuse for the panels is watts / panel volts (18) = amps fuse for the panel bank. HOPE THIS HELPS AND IS CLEAR

At 49er,

Nice going there, are you going to use silicone to close those boxes so they are waterproof?

Hi ALL

Here is the end of the pic and the job is done.




It is messy but it is sealed




All boxes are sealed with HF high temp silicone




A close up on how to place your angle supports




The end of the project LOOKS NICE

Around here they charge $18.00 a month just to have power hooked up , then any power that is used is charged on top of that .

Hi K

With us they charge us for line usage. So get some panels and go for it.

Hi TJ

With the addition of the gti we will see. Yes it will be close. Still have to get some cable to hook up the gti and put it on a switch so I can use the 12 power to go where I want it probably some time this week it will be in line..
