h out the sun and atmosphere... have a great sunday.. enjoy the sun.. looks like you will get more of it than me.. although right now we are crankin' it up.. Rock on! joe

Jim... fossil fuels are akin to a thoroughbred horse that has run it's last race.. ready to be put out to pasture... I call our local nuke tomb, oyster leak nuke cooker.. it has ruined the bay by heating it's temp and is leaking tritium as well.. trouble is.. Nj's repub appointed BPU has stifled coastal wind and folks need those $35 an hour jobs even if it makes them glow in the dark i guess..I did send you the link to the 8 minute truth about solar video right? Fact: Germany produced so much energy from renewable energy that their grid prices went to zero and even negative zero multiple time this year.. and you're right.. we are energy generators just like coal, nuke and gas (except for all that pollution) and they don't pay a thing to use the grid.. but the utility companies want us to.. don't sound hardly fair do it? Let me know if i didn't get that video link over to you...I will resend it.. it starts off with elon musk speaking of a frozen orb in space.. yes.. that's earth wit

What? Onecan't see that system from atop the pru building? Dailfo has an article post today on that 30% issue.. they are blaming it on..are you ready?.. a unnatural gas shortage,a coal and nuke plant shutdown.. geez.and I thought it would be a sun and wind shortage!! Nah plenty of that,esp.along cape cod.. happy sunday.. joe

and get some photos up you proud solar guy!!

by Joeski1  Sep 27, 2014

Jim.. there will always be a few bad cranks to every good turn.. complain in writing to your BPU and regional politicos, also join any association of similar minded folks.. check www.solarpowerrocks.com for links and other info that may help.. to me.. it sounds like otherwise energy independent farmers were snookered onto the grid teat years back.. losing their self sufficiency in the process... now we'll all have to fight the energy crooks the current monopolies have created.. I did look at a back up system for when grid power goes kaput!.. but it was about 10G's.. and I thought.. I could stay at a closeby BW w/generator for a long time on that.. (this email sent to you by 100% solar power) hahaah joe Ps.. middy was looking for photos on your system.. or other pertinent info... good buddy of mine.. check his WB!!

Jimmy, - Just dropping by to say hi.

by Joeski1  Sep 26, 2014

Jimmy! pulled a 41 from old man sol today!! Yea! Gotta check into that formula... and yes.. find something interesting and worthwhile wind wise..I wanna hear about it.. that 36V system.. is nothing I've ever been aware of.. probably a wee bit before my time... but hey.. if it works.. may be it's due time again!! Always a pleasure, joe

by Joeski1  Sep 26, 2014

Yes.. jim.. I too would love to develop some homegrown wind to supplement the solar pv at night and windy days... at first 1500kW hrs a year doesn't sound bad.. but if you cost it out with the 10 large installed price.. this neat little turbine was a financial loss.. and CR put the kaboosh on any hope of success or product improvement.. how do you figure your inverter effciency? I have 3 inverters that i would need top measure if I was really curious... it'[s almost impossible to copy and paste 3 links on one WB post.. so please forgive me for the multiples.. if you do fiind something worthwhile wind wise.. give a shout out please.. looks like we're both gonna have a decent day's sunshine this friday.. will sure beat yesterday's 7 kW hrs I 'm sure.. best joe

Well Said Brother!! OUR OIL, OUR GAS!

to think..they won popular science's innovation product of the year in 2011 and went out of business less than 4 years later... gotta watch the too good to be true claims.. this one was obviously not a good deal..who'd have thunk it! No wonder the guy never got back to me... joe
