    Do you really thank the utility doesn’t have input on the rules and planning process? How can any rule be written without an industry’s input and you can bet the companies that fit the Criteria make sure there equipment will be need and used, like Victron which is quite expensive. They had...

    Issue with Growatt SPF 5000 ES

    The company that builds it is all that matters, If 18 amps os a hard limit then the amps is the problem. Basically you are redlining the inverter and it will prematurely fail, stay within the guidelines and you will be fine. The fact that it is dropping mid day tells you it is the AMP's.

    Future of DIY LiFePO4 looks bleak…

    When I priced out building a rack exactly like the one for the EG4 battery it would cost about $150 more, In fact there is a YouTube video showing the same thing. Again shipping from all the sources is not included in the price.
