    Installed the 3 30 watt solar panels and the 40 watt.

    Still working on all the electrics (nearly finished :rolleyes:) Made an insulated box as lead acid batteries don't like cold temperatures. Not installed it yet but got a small 12 volt heater to use the battery power to keep themselves warm if needed.

    Pulling some power from the sun now :)

    Not for long :D

    Nearly finished the new electric board :)

    4 incoming solar panels with remaining sockets to add 4 more/wind turbine/nuclear power plant etc.

    12 volt switch that powers LED strip light.

    Double 12 volt car lighter sockets with LED backlit double USB ports.

    One 150 watt inverter for small load 230 volt A/C appliances such as drill/lawnmower/chainsaw battery charging.

    One 3000 watt pure sine wave inverter for long term grid failure, this will run a fridge freezer, in fact most things except an electric shower or emersion heater.

    2 Mains powered 230 volt double sockets for when things are normal and I need the radio on to listen to Radio Caroline on 648 Medium Wave :setc_027::setc_027::setc_027:
