Normal daily use of my solar panel setup

August 29th, 2010


Well, my solar panels and battery bank are really proving their worth in my place. We loose power here about once a month, at least. It gets really frustrating to wake up in the dark with no way to shower or shave for work.


But, my place always has light and energy. It just takes a minute to stagger over in the dark to turn on the solar power and I can continue on with the morning as usual. Even shaving is no problem. I cant use a blade, so electric shavers are a necessity.


I also use the solar lighting in the evenings. It is a nice, subdued light for watching tv or working on the computer. For a reading lamp, you need to be closer to the LED light, but it works very well.


All in all, I am quite happy with the backup power this provides. Especially in a power outage.
