DIARY ENTRY FOR 15 FEBRUARY, 2010

Installing Solar Panels

These panels have been waiting in my garage to see the light of day for about 2 weeks. Finally a nice day (yesterday) to get them mounted and hooked up. By the time I was done, the sun had gone down, so I haven't yet seen the juice flow in.

Ahh that's better! The sun came out this afternoon for a 1/2 day of power. Everything is working nicely. At about 3:00 I saw 6 amps coming in, so if the sun had been out at noon, I probably would have seen the 7-8 amps. As you would expect from the label.
