Quote from: kibi on Monday,October 28, 2013, 21:07:38 Sorry to hijack this thread, but I am fascinated with solar / wind energy. Earlier this year I set up an off grid solar system upon my workshop roof. It works quite well, I have not used mains electricity in the workshop since May.My system is way bigger than what one would use in the field, but the principals are the same. At least I can say that my quad is truly solar powered provided I charge the batteries in the workshop. :)Here is a link to the build details if anyone is interested.http://www.eevblog.com/forum/projects/solar-powered-workshop-take-two/I record my daily harvest here.http://www.pvoutput.org/list.jsp?id=21185&sid=19064Live data can be seen here.https://xively.com/feeds/611817707
