    last year my small panels got covered with snow but they soon melted plus that’s why I have a wind turbine for winter to take up the slack in power generation

    The simplest way it to make a DC to DC upconverter. Then you don’t need to change any connections.

    I have a small wind turbine and a small solar panel your right about solar panels they give out a steady volts and amps most of the time my only concern is the way you have it mounted in a good wind it could turn into a kite personaly i would have mounted it on the roof of your out building it would be a lot securer and easier to maintain[lot of money to go skyward]?

    Nice job

    They are quite expensive, do they actually make that much of a contribution to be of any significant value? How consistent are they? Sorry, I know these are noob questions, these are very new to me.

    how much did it cost u for the 7000 watt of solar panel ?

    Cool Man,
    You have done a great thing for yourself & the earth!! Thanks for your dedication!

    What is a dump load. Will it light up if the batteries are not fully charged.

  21. #21 by windysolar1 at August 19th, 2009

    A dump load is used to absorb the excess power when the voltage rises above the safe level that the battery’s need to charge.
    Too much and the battery’s cook which will destroy the plates inside. creating heat in water or air.

    A safety valve for battery’s

  22. #22 by minicoppergpiscool at August 20th, 2009

    So is the light or I guess water heater only on when the voltage passes 13 volts will it shut of when the voltage gets to 12 volts

  23. #23 by windysolar1 at August 20th, 2009

    As your battery’s charge up the voltage increases but the Amp-age decreases.
    so when your battery bank is nealy ( 90% )full the charge controller starts to dump the extra power to the dump load .then the charge controller waits until the battery’s are 100% full which takes a long time up to 24 hours on some systems depending on how much power you have coming in.

  24. #24 by windysolar1 at August 20th, 2009

    My system is full after one hour at BULK CHARGE 28.6v then it drops to FLOAT 26.6v and keeps trickle charging until I use some of the power up ,then it all starts all over again.

    a water heater would be a great dump load
