September is upon us. Here in southwestern Ontario Canada fall is approaching fast. The additional panels were of great improvement especially for after 5:00 pm
This summer the mighty Geothermal heat-pump air conditioner was flexing its muscles using solar produced electricity. The addition of 3.5 kw helped with a state of charge that would have us cruise through the night in total comfort. If the morning greeted us with sunshine we are set for another day. However if the morning sun was a little shy we had to make the switch to grid for an hour or two until it was bright enough to gain us some electrons.
All in all many days would pass and the off grid smile was still present.
Today holiday Monday we sill have the switch off grid Charging the car, air-conditioning and washing clothes with fridges and coffee pot in operation
Additional batteries and a little wind are on the list as well as a little larger low pass filter for the inverter. During high energy uses it gets a little warmer than Id like but no smoke.
Its a win
