    Starting from nothing, but going big

    This reply is to the fist part where Hedges said "If someone has an off-grid property with shop tools, a 3-phase system could be considered. I think 3-phase motors have better starting torque (good phase shift), but still draw a high surge current so inverter needs to supply that (33kW surge...

    Building a new house -- What would you use?

    This would be a fun link to follow, even better would be if Will could tell us precisely what he would do with his own home system if he started over. He has so much experience and knowledge and he updates every day! He is able to power everything, including direct charging his Tesla. No...

    Beware the lure of unethical solar panels

    When this thread started, it was stated that China has forced labor. What is that? Most of the world has forced labor, as if we don't work we don't eat and we get hungry. I am serious, what is the extent of the force, and do you know for sure? I do know they lack environmental standards, and...

    Rail-less mount on metal roof

    There are lots of them out there, but I have no idea what is the best. Standing seams vary a bunch, and that is a major consideration. I hope someone weighs in and we can all learn the best one. Good luck!

    Status thread: 32x 280Ah cells from Shenzhen Haomi through Alibaba

    Thanks for the input and update, it is good to see the entire story. Do you think that you could reorder at the same level of success or have things changed with the political climate? Any idea on price changes since you ordered?

    It will be interesting to see who weighs in on your question, I will love to learn what I can, but I don't know enough to comment. You might want to ask for critical reviews, because many don't want to be offensive and will not comment.

    Direct to water heating.

    I think I see the day coming when this is common, so good for you! Did you say you are using a replacement element? Do the panels do any other work of any kind, or just heat water?

    Direct to water heating.

    Wow, very interesting. Now time will tell how long this works for you, you clearly will not stress anything other than the switching thermostat contacts, and maybe not too much, as the voltage is not high. Any idea on how much water you heat in an hour? Have you ever looked for hot wires...

    How big can you go?

    I may not have a accurate grasp of this thread, but I will offer a few thoughts. First, if you have a big system, you will use much of it while the sun is shining, it might be an alternative to have a back up generator for times when a reasonable size battery bank can keep up.

    Growatt 12k unboxing

    I don't know what to tell you on that, others will be able to help. I am still a bit concerned about only being able to hook 7000 watts to it. I have seen the explanation, but wonder why they call it a 12,000 watt unit?

    Growatt 12k unboxing

    I am very curious, what else can you tell me about the panels? I will hope someone will weight in on the 12K invertor limited to 7000 watts. The price seems excellent on the 335 watt panels. Thanks for sharing all of this

    Growatt 12k unboxing

    So you can put a 12000 watt array into this thing and have a complete system? And it will be string wired all the way, and I assume 48 volt? What capacity of batteries will you have? And are you going to tie it to the grid? What have you got for panels, and can I ask the price?
