Hey all, Just wanted to get an economic snapshot if possible. I have had 6 55W Siemens panels charging a 12V bank of 4 golfcart batteries (220AH @6V) through a 20A Sunsaver Controller and a 800W Modified inverter for over 6 years. My very remote cabin is wired 120AC, and I have gone through three inverters, which are very inexpensive. I only average one 3-5 day visit every 6 weeks, and have a 1850 W Coleman genset to power a circular saw or anything else, but hardly ever use it. On AC I run CF lighting, a computer, stereo, hand power tools, on DC a small fridge and LED lighting. I get great production, but I'm going to step up, because I need more amps with a couple of new rooms and a pump. BTW, I heat with a woodstove, and collect water to a 300 Gallon tank 40 feet above the cabin, where it feeds the system through a filter. How would you spend $1500? Thanks very much for taking a minute from your day.
