Re: Nova Scotia Home Solar Project

Talk about moving goal posts! Your argument has gone from MPPT is overrated, to I can do it just as good, see my way! I have always maintained exactly the same position (a,b & c from above). So, I will go over this again: First off, with regard to voltage drop, you may choose to use conductors t...

Re: Nova Scotia Home Solar Project

I'm pretty sure I said I wasn't going to debate this issue, but I will reply. 1. Panel cost is important. If a retailer in Canada is offering a 145 W panel for $199, that price is really TGTBT, so I'll call on Monday to confirm that. I might be able to use some of those here and there, but certainly...

Re: Nova Scotia Home Solar Project

I'm not going to debate you. There is no need. Your argument is valid, and so is mine. Your argument was that the assertion that MPPT controllers capture 30% more energy compared to PWM is false, or at least grossly misleading. I agree. I don't make that claim. What I claim is that MPPT technology: ...

Re: Nova Scotia Home Solar Project

Ahhh a disturbance in the force....the paradigm fights back...I roughly agree with your prices as stated...in fact they are a very typical example used to make a case for mppt.Those figures sure make it look bad for me :( as they are suppo...

Re: Nova Scotia Home Solar Project

Damn it, I shouldn't get involved, but I can't help myself. Let's look at the value of MPPT in a "real world" scenario. Let's say I want to install 60 Amps (720 Watts) worth of solar charging power on my property. My optimal solar location is 50' away from my battery bank. I have a 12 Volt...

Re: What Scares C5????

I'm right there with you C5. I'm 40 something years old with 2 young kids. I don't know how to prepare them for the road ahead because I can't see the road ahead. It might be under water, scorched to a crisp, or worse. One part of me says let them live for today and enjoy what they can, knowing they...

Re: Prepper Portable Power Options when Bugging Out

I've thought long and hard about this issue, and don't have any 100% solid answers but here are my thoughts anyway: I try to imagine bugging out in really specific terms, answering questions in my mind like "why am I bugging out", "where am I going", "how am I getting there&...
