Very nice, was it easy to install ?
Mounting was a pain since I can't really walk on the roof like the last van but nothing too difficult. The standardized connectors make things easy but I can't help but wonder how much resistance all those connectors add. :think:

Will be interesting to see how well topped up these two will keep the batteries.....have room to add another larger panel or two of the same.(though the weight may make the pop top a lil difficult.

Not too happy with the local weather so when it went on sale, I jumped on 150w of more power generation :dance:

Still cleaning up stuff inside, will take some pics once it's more presentable.

Yeah, it's been a bad month for solar power production recently. Our total is way down on what we would expect at this time of year. We're actually thinking of putting more panels on the cafe roof if we can hook them up to the house array.

Even when the weather is nice the clouds are a plenty. Might be worth looking into a DIY battery storage solution for certain needs and keep it totally off grid.

As proud Nissan Leaf owners we are looking at fitting a V2H unit so we can use the car as a home battery :razz:

Sorry man but that is one area Leaf's are better than Teslas, IMHO :lol:
