Curious neighbors looking at my solar system
Guess I started something in my area. since I got my solar system online DEC 24. I am getting lots of visitors dropping by that are asking all kind of questions about my solar systems. I did most of it myself even though I am not an electrician. Hired one at the end to do the wireing from solar panels ect. A neighbor about 3 miles from me stopped in today asking me all kind of questions. He bought 4 Suntech 270 watt panels and told me he is going to connect them to a 40 gal. waterheater and preheat the water before it goes into his 82 gal. waterheater. Said he was going to use 2 dc heating elementsin the 40 gal and maybe put 1 in the 80 gal water heater. I don,t know for sure but I am thinking with all them solar panels he might overheat the water heater. I told him my personal opinion that he better make sure the pressure releaf valve is working and he has a place for the water to go. I told him also that I thougt it might be better to get an inverter and make use of the electric in his house. Anyone that knows a lot more than me have any opinions?
