UPDATE on my latest experiment- 6000 watts of solar grid tie system with all electric car. First month of production, March 9 thru April 9, 5 miles north of Cantwell Alaska. These panels produced just over 800 KWHs of power. We only used 400 KWHs, mainly for driving around, app 700 miles worth. DID I TELL YOU I CAN MAKE "GAS" FOR THIS CAR NOW? We now have credit with GVEA for 400 KWHs just for the month of March's production which in this CHEVY car equals between 1200 to 2000 miles of driving!!!!! April's production will be much higher as more sun and I expanded the system to 8700 watts. For me, this has been more successful than I could have imagined. For me, driving around and not burning gas or diesel, no fumes, no noise has upped my quality of life by many degrees, Tanners, our guests, crew and everyone we drive past. HOW CAN I ENCOURAGE YOU TO START DOING THE SAME?
