Have been an enthusiastic reader of various posts on this forum and am now joining.
Currently live in Melbourne but intend on moving out kilmore way in the next few years. (That's the dream
Have a 1.5kw grid tie(a number of years) and a 12V 300Ah of old gels (with a 70W panel) running the led lights in the garage, (even more years of service).
Some days in winter I see a huge 0.4 of a amp hour for the day off the 70W panel
Have just installed another 1Kw of panels, and have 16 Winston 130Ah LiFeYPO4 turning up in a week.
Have experience with LiFePO4 and lipo for electric bikes but a 6.6Kw battery should be interesting.
(Yes I know not big enough)
P.S (The panels will be wired to a grid tie when I do the tree change but right now they will be used with battery).
I figure I have about six months to create a CHP system for the winter months.
