The Going Solar blog will feature ideas and information relevant to installing and optimizing home solar energy systems, plus the occasional posts relevant to the climate change crisis and lack of political sanity. Our low cost panel racks have been replicated four times in our county, and at least a dozen times across the country and South America that I know of. There are also some useful resources related to our Solar Open House.
This site is also used test WordPress plugins and functions I’ve been developing for my client’s websites, such as the iconic newslink management software that provide these widgets and their associated searchable archives.
Sorry I haven’t gotten to more ‘how-to’ posts than the panel mounting rack yet, but I’ve been swamped with website work and building projects. I’m working to extract myself from various website maintenance loops (by automating sites I manage with WordPress) and hope to begin adding more technical posts sometime in late 2017 or 2018.
Upcoming ‘how-to’ posts will cover topics such as low cost ultra-low power DC lighting and using DC/DC power supplies to eliminate vampire transformers so your inverter can run in stand-by mode (every watt-hour is sacred, especially in an off-grid system). Also how to modify a frost-free refrigerator to work wth an inverter running in stand-by mode – without modification a frost-free refrigerator will experience severe mood swings.
