Default Howdy!

Hi everyone!

I live in Quebec, Canada. Bonjour! / Hola / Hello.

We have a cottage with very modest power needs. It's my main project. Eventually I plan on doing something at our home sans batteries.

I started out with low end solar panels and used car batteries.

Currently I have:
  • 40a mppt controller
  • 2 x 280 watt panels, connected in parallel since only one is ever in the sun
  • 2 x 6v Costco Golf Cart batteries, connected in serial for 12 VDC, 220 AH.

I purposely do not have an inverter in the system as most of our needs are 12 VDC.

I'll post in a more appropriate forum an interesting phenomena I am seeing. I'm not sure whether it's me not understanding something or whether there's an issue.

For now, I just wanted to say hi!

-pablo
