Smile hi to all, new one here

I just discovered this community and I believe I will find some advice here. I have been interested about solar for many years.I have six solar panels on my northern facing roof along with a sunny Boy SB1100 grid tie inverter. I would like to set up a second solar system, so I went looking the internet and discovered this community. I'll publish my concerns in correct place...I hope

Hi James,
Welcome to the forum. I'm using a DIY solar PV system for back-up power
(in case of grid fail) and to add a little extra heat to my hot water tank.

I found another form that specializes in solar PV, it's at
Solar Electric Power Discussion Forum by Northern Arizona Wind & Sun

I've found some good information there, but some of it is more advanced than I need..
I'm not interested in grid-tie, or becoming self-sufficient/off-grid. Just small scale DIY projects..

My arrays, last March..
