Solar Panels

Grey Wolf asked me the other day how my solar panels are coming along, so I thought I would put in an update. They are truely fantastic! I have one 85w panel provided by sustainable-systems in Oxford, and it is providing all the electricity in these summer months to keep my batteries topped up and run my 12V fridge. I did find that there wasn't enough juice going in during the duller rainier days, so I have added another battery to my bank, making it 3, and have shortened the wire from the panel to the batteries as it was excessively long and some current would be lost through voltage drop.
