It's the voltage that determines the current for a power level. DC actually works favorably here.

My idea was to disconnect one of the services to avoid having to pay for the service charge twice. Not go off grid, but just a potential "low hanging fruit" to pick.

To my surprise, shortly after Naomi Wu gave me a bit of fame for making good use of solar power, Allie Moore got really jealous of her...
