Re: Solar Power

@ glait: Thank you for the link! 12v @ 225Ah = 2*5500= 11.000 THB. At this moment I paid 7.700 for 200Ah Time will tell if they are good enough or too cheap product :-) How long to you have your gulf cart 6v 225Ah batteries? (Months, years) It's good to have real life results and expectations!! They...

Re: Solar Power

I have the same problems with power storage... Lead acid battery are relatively cheap, I didn't look at the golf cart type, I can't tell. Where did you buy yours? One thing many people don't know is that it is "easy" to renew the batteries. Quickest way is Epson salt, but also short time extension. ...

Re: Solar Power

My battery array is excessive, huge, heavy. But relative cheap. 16 X 200ah is about 125K THB. (Au$ 6K) (€ 4k) That's Include the transport of 1.000 kgs :-) Having western energy lifestyle off grid.... It needs some investment. With my installation the batteries should last 3 to 4 years. (Reduced hea...

Re: Solar Power

I do thrust inverter type, the main difference is that it is build to work 24/7. Non inverter is more start - boost - stop system. My 9000 BTU cools our bedroom and bathroom without any issues. (Bathroom 3 * 3, bedroom 3* 5 meter) I do say, it's running 24/7. We have tick walls great insulation. Cei...

Re: Isaan red clothes...

I have had the same problem over the years, l put it down to the water the clothes are washed in, the red (brown) dirt staining whether from the Well or Village is evident in all our tanks and pipes. Whole house Filter definitely helps. I don't buy white clothing any more. Lol :D Yes, an other vict...

Re: Solar Power

There are solar air-conditioning... Sold sadly almost only as a set with solarpanels. It would be strange to to the DC to AC to DC on special made for :-) And while it does have less parts, they are a lot more expensive! Even if you deduct the solar panel. Even more strange, as they're supposed to w...

Re: Solar Power

For me.... We have no grid. No alternative. Closest connection option is 8 km from our home. It would cost million to get the grid connection. Some good news, I fixed one of the GAIA inverter, it is having additional ventilator strapped to it in case of an other fan failure. The new inverter will be...

Re: Solar Power

:-) I couldn't agree more. My system is also highly over capacity. This to ensure long life. 4 lines of 4 12v batteries parallel and series give the same redundancy as 4 separate system. Same goes for my original 2* GAIA, later 3*. Sadly the 6000w unit is not as lasting as it's smaller brothers. My ...

Re: Waiting times to pickup your order (DoHome)

DoHome is a really good shop for be, as long as I do not have to be at the pick-up department at the back of the store. They have many registers (and need as they are not the fastest) and get their work checked by different people. Out on the parking lot, they have an excellent team for packing and ...

Re: Waiting times to pickup your order (DoHome)

Only gripe was they were insistent on B300 delivery charge even though I'd just spent a couple of hundred thousand on materials LoL. Yes, also Thai. You can get discount on your tiles, but no chance they will give up the delivery fee.... Different guy, department, money stream.. I will look at this...

Waiting times to pickup your order (DoHome)

Wait sometimes more then 90 minutes for them to getting (partly) order... Then you need to move to differen...

Many posts about solar... Many :-) For me, I have not an other option. My (new to build) home is 3km away to the electricity grid. I like to use, looking at the possible costs, it ain't funny. I can buy panels local, about 3500 Baht per 300W polycrystalline Bigger problem is storage for night. Are t...

Re: Solar Power

My new replacement inverter came yesterday. It is connected and running exactly as it is supposed to. I was again surprised that they sent it UPS so it got here quickly.
Longer then 3 hours this time =D>
