Solar Update

In the short time our panels have been installed so far, we have been delighted with the results. The first couple of days were quite dull, but even so, the difference in time required to charge our batteries was nearly halved and over these last couple of gloriously sunny late September days we have seen our Smartguage reading 100% charge by midday and no need to run the engine at all except to produce some hot water for a shower!

Our friends at Sunshine Solar have supplied a meter to plug into the controller and monitor the output, now we can stand and gaze at our bank of meters and congratulate ourselves on how much diesel we are saving every day!
