    Epever Tracer BP series

    Searched both this forum and the net and coming up with little on the Tracer bp series. It's a bit cheaper than the equivalent an series and waterproof, both a bonus at the location this charge controller will be installed.

    Using Roofing Tin as EMP shield

    It appears decent emp shielding of sensitive electronics can be had rather affordably, and at a diy level, using roofing tin. Spare equipment would be kept offline and wrapped. IIRC, as I have long ago lost the link, pv panels are somewhat hardy when it comes to emp strikes. Anyone up on this?

    Anyone actually ordered a TEG system online?

    Me, being simple and such, was thinking silicone hockey pucks.

    Using Roofing Tin as EMP shield

    Thank you for that information. It's nice to have someone that helps instead of instantly taking a condescending stance, because their view does no align. A box within a box concept makes me wonder how much attenuation two layers of corrugated steel would create.

    Used Solar Panels

    Either. Used panels can be a good deal, or not. They can (SanTan's inventory is in perpetual motion) be bought for $.14/watt. I got no problem with buying panels with known issues for super cheap, if they fit the need. This includes cracked vinyl or snail trails. Although, their seems to be...

    Using Roofing Tin as EMP shield

    Maybe EMP shielding is a good idea, maybe not so much, but if it can be done in a affordable fashion, why not? I see people 'styling' the inside of their homes with the old fashion corrugated type roofing tin. If I were to build a shop, for the sole purpose of housing all the PV equipment...
