Most of my readers will know that I installed a solar panel this summer and ran wires and lights too. When I did so a few of you cautioned that the 12 volt system would not meet my needs. So far, not much has changed, every time I turn on the switch there is a ray of clear, free light that pops on.
The only let down I had, is that I can’t charge my drill. This remains the only drawback of going with a small 12 volt system in my particular off grid situation.
The stand that I built for it seems to be working really well too. It keeps the panel off the ground and it is also heavy enough to stay on the ground even with the huge winter winds that we experience here on the escarpment.
Pretty reflection isn’t it?
That reflection would make a very cool modern painting…
