This is far cheaper to produce, has virtually no electrical resistance ( lower than gold) and can be printed onto a fibreglas substraite. We went solsr last Feb. Would we research more before doing so … positively!!!

I run the 110 v. from the inverter to a t-240 transformer. They also made sure our house could accommodate the number of panels we needed and of course the roof had to be able to support the additional weight. By burning wood in the unit it would be carbon neutral. I don’t have the link anymore, but there was a website that provided a rough estimation of how many hours of sunlight by geographic region of the US solar panels would probably generate. Thank you for making this possible. Charlie, if the HF works for you and is enough, go for it. But it’s great to hear from someone who has reduced their pull from the grid. What would you need to “turn the meter backwards” in terms of additional equipment and panels? That means the dust collection is taking 3 times more power than the actual task at hand!!!
