Re: [hreg] Moving, must sell my solar equipment
Hey Mike - Thanks for the email. The price is very attractive but we're still trying to figure out how we can make this work with our airstream trailer. If you have the time we'd like to come out and see what you've got. Sue

Date: Tuesday, November 25, 2008, 9:00 AMHi, newbie to the group. Tried to find a separate classified sectionhttp://houston. craigslist. org/for/93345226 0.html
but couldn't find one. Please forgive and provide guidance if this is
the wrong area to post at.
I set up my first system on an RV in 1989. 3 panels, Edison Nickel
Iron batteries and a Trace inverter. Worked great! (long gone now so
don't bother to email about that one). Been reading Home Power since
issue #11 and had planned on setting up a whole house system when we
eventually move from Kingwood to California. However, with the recent
power outage from Hurricane Ike (these seem to be more and more
frequent) and our continuing electricity rate hikes, I recently made
the plunge and purchased a large solar power system. 48 batteries, 26
panels and lots more. I had thought we wouldn't be moving for 3 years.
Now however, it turns out we will be moving this Spring. If I knew
that we would be moving into a house right away I could possibly think
about bringing the equipment with us. But we may be in an apartment
initially, so its just not going to work out to move all this stuff.
Anyways, I think my best move is to part this gear out into starter
systems for someone that wants to get their feet wet in RE and take a
room off grid. I put a listing on Craigslist
basically 4 Deka batteries, 2 Kyocera 80 watt panels, OK Solar
battery enclosure, ASC charge controller, and battery cables and
wiring. New cost is a little over $4000 and I've listed it for $1299.
If anyone is interested just email or give me a call at 281-358-3773.
