"I think most are awaiting more details, but let's remember we are the minority. Most folks need a turn key operation the handyman can install. Still, great fun to watch."

Johann commented on Renewable Ray's blog post Is Elon Musk the "Übermensch"
"A 10 kw battery is not really exiting to talk about, especially knowing that they need to be replaced also  and that they still can not be discharged all the way without being destroyed and that they will cost $3,000. The heck those batteries…"

Beyond Tesla: The Huge Profit Potential of Lithium

By Tony Sagami

One of the stocks that I get the most questions about is Tesla. I’m not sure whether investor interest is due to the gorgeous lines of the Tesla Model S, its amazing high performance engine, the high flying stock, or the energy saving nature of all electric vehicles….. but Tesla is a very popular subject.…

Are You Sure You Want The Economy to get Better?

Posted on June 19, 2012 at 2:21pm 6 Comments

I think if you ask the general public who the average "do it yourself solar energy enthusiast" is they would say he or she is someone who is trying to save some money. And sure, that's true for a lot of us. Including me! 

But that is just part of what motivates most of us, I think most of our members are motivated by what I call "fear of being plunged into darkness". And no matter how small your system is you will avoid that when Mr. Big Grid decides it's your "brown out day"…

Has anyone used an MPPT controller with the Harbor Freight 45 watt kit?

Discount Solar lists an MPPT controller(250 watts) at $109. I wonder how that might work with the Harbor Freight kit.

Kinda interesting place here. I'm just beginning my quest into solar power and in the process of learning. The HF set-up is really a great way to do it. Its perhaps not the "best" machine but its low price and availability will launch many DIY folks into the quest to instal and become familiar with this technology. I'll visit and post here when I have some questions and have something to report.
