    Default All fine till here

    Hi all

    I didn't post for a year or so, just want to leave a feedback.

    The panels have passed two years in action now, there have not been a single problem with them - neither the used gel batteries I bought.

    All in one it was a good investment and a lot of fun, I use no other electrisity for my small distillery, the heat source is gas.

    Wish all the very best

    Default Thanks for details

    Hi Ecosolar.

    I'm just getting started with solar, and appreciate your project post.
    I agree that building your own panels is not cost effective, but when your in remote areas, any power is better than no power.
    I enjoyed reading your post, and can see the Engineering background in the details.
    Hope your still posting here.

    Default Pictures please

    Hi all,

    I also would like to see pictures of your project if possible.

    My project is ready for the next rain inspection to see if Phase I is complete, so I can start building internally.

    Most of my work is posted on my Facebook page at txtinner
