  • Greetings, Unfortunately it is not finished. I have the building for it about three quarters done, the control panel is in out of the weather, but then Garth and I got a full time job off the farm last January. Just keeping the critters looked after is about all we are getting done here right now. But, the job ends in three weeks, so we can work on the system and our house again...

  • Greetings, I just realized why the Tessla has charge controllers, I am slow sometimes. My charge controller won't work, a different kind of battery. Like recharging AA batteries, you have to use the right charger. I wonder if my inverters would work, I would assume yes, but I could be wrong. It is looking like either you start with a Tessla system, or don't bother, you will have...

  • Thanks Kevin, It appears I am in worse shape than I thought. This weather shift this year is so strange, I have never had dead calm, all my trees are flagged from the constant wind, until I want to use wind as a back up. Now, dead calm and cloudy. This year anyway, I wonder if the weather pattern will switch back. Kim Travis PDC The Rose Colored Forest Bedias, Texas On 5/2/2015 3...

  • Greetings, I have yet to loose a battery for anything in 4 years. My last tractor battery was 12 years old, and it was abused, so how do you get a 4 year life???? If I have the kind of money needed invested, believe me, those batteries are cared for. Have you watched the weather lately? We just did 12 days of no wind and clouds, so no power created. My normal electric bill is...

  • Greetings, So, how many KWH do I have? I thought my 8 batteries were 50KWH and about $5000 new. Did I not listen carefully?

  • Greetings, My batteries are not lead acid, they are gel cells. Still, the price tag for the amount of storage is outrageous.

  • Greetings, For those who haven't seen this, http://www.gizmag.com/tesla-battery-powerwall/37283/?utm_source=Gizmag+Subscribers&utm_campaign=c56d46f63c-UA-2235360-4&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_65b67362bd-c56d46f63c-91918497 To me, this seems outrageously expensive compare to what is available. Kevin may correct me, but I do believe I have 50KWH of batteries that were about $5000...

  • Greetings, Once again, our lovely government shows zero understanding of how the small farmer works. The last line of the article on applying for a grant kills most of us. The deadline to submit applications is anticipated to be January 31 st , April 30th, and continue through 2019. Applications can currently be submitted to USDA until the deadlines. Applications must be received...

  • Greetings, Gary is not moderated, since Yahoo is letting his posts through, then sending them for moderation. I bow to the forces that be, obviously, I was wrong in trying to moderate him. But, Gary needs to be more tolerant and not sneer at others. I will let this forum follow where it needs to. It is not a strict, you must be on topic kind of thing, it never has been. The...
