Say g'day and tell us a little bit about yourself if you wish. If you have a wind or solar power system, big or small; flaunt its specs here!

New here, and new to solar, did not know anything a year ago, but have been able to get a small system up and working, all do it yourself work with lots of learning on the way!!

my 1.5kw system feeds into batterys that I use to power a inverter for 240v power to run my computer, TV, etc off..

Lots to learn and lots of questions

At this time I have 2 120ah AGM Batterys, that have been working for a little over a year, running 24/7, charging with solar and running computer etc. over night..
A total of 240ah, but could do with 400 - 500ah size to allow for winter days but what to get everything working right befor replacing them
