During the weekend before last, Rosalba and I attended a course put on by the Rainbow Power Company titled “Living with Solar”
The course covered pretty much anything to do with solar power generation, from solar panels and cable sizing to battery care.
The course was presented in an easy going two days and aimed at giving anyone a good understanding on solar power generation and it’s impacts on your life style.
One of the most interesting things I picked up from the course is that you can still use a bread maker but you just need to be careful when you use it. As a bread maker uses quite a lot of electricity you should only use it when you have excess energy being generated by your solar panels and your battery bank is already full.
Personally I believe that this course is very worth while for anyone interested in generating electricity from the sun, be that a grid connect system or an autonomous remote area power system (RAPS).
