The Do-it-yourself Earth Installing Solar Panels On A House In Australia

I was questioned by a good friend in Australia to put in his photo voltaic panels, batteries and inverter. This was a good chance for me to practice my abilities in photo voltaic electricity installation.

He had a full photo voltaic electricity established full with 4 eighty watt photo voltaic panels, two massive batteries, a photo voltaic cost controller and a pure sine wave inverter. This is from a camper he at the time had.

At initial we made the decision to slice an previous wood pallet to size and put the batteries on that. My good friend and his young ones served get the pallet ready.

When that was carried out i put the batteries on the pallet. This was a problem since just about every battery weighs one hundred sixty lbs .. I then wired up the batteries together in parallel to increase the overall Amp Several hours of the battery financial institution when trying to keep a twelve volt procedure.

We drilled a gap in the box to accept the wires coming from the photo voltaic panels. I put a photo voltaic panel on the porch roof to check the procedure out. Just after connecting the photo voltaic cost controller to the batteries I then wired up a photo voltaic panel to the cost controller and saw that it was charging the batteries.

But my good friend arrived up with a much better idea for the batteries and dragged out this massive trunk that will now household the batteries and double as a bench.

I obtained the batteries wired up in the new trunk and this is where by I had to go away it for the working day.
