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)

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...

Re: Solar Power

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>
