spring 2018 solar power

sunday 8th of april i done did do use me off grid solar carts to brew coffee and make oatmeal. sunday was actually sunny and i was able to recharge bat-trees after usage. i made $5.20 from the roof. monday i made $4.83 from the roof. this is after a winter where the roof was coated with almost 2 feet od snow for almost 3 weeks.

on the 10th light snow is predicted and then warm, warmer and warmest for the rest of the week. warm AND sunny they say which means i can shut the heet off and really make bucks.

even on mostly cloudy days the roof made over 3 bucks but bean cold the heet was on. however, once warm sets in and longer dayz i can make money on cloudy dayz.

i had the pik chure winders in the sitting room replaced and when it gets too hot i kin open dem now and let all duh hot air out of the house to reduce A/C costs.

in other newz i can go for 75 seconds on the bicycle generator. i want ter git up to 5 minnits. den i kan start pulling juice out of dee system.

if i remain “retired” i’ll have lots of time to do off gridding. it adds up, 750 watts here, 350 there.

all i wuz able to do this winter wuz top the solar carts off on weekends saving them in case of mains interruption due severe weather. i only had one 3 hour black out in january when it wuz single digits. it happened in the morning and clear sun kept the sitting room and living room warm. as the sun rolled over to the other side the power was restored.

there were a few other times this winter with momentary interruptions but i got lucky. back in 1984 an ice storm knocked mains power off for a week and then hurricane sandy was 8 days.

to be fair all i can do with my off grid solar carts is brew coffee make oatmeal, have a light on or use my laptop. but that is way better than nothing!
that’s if the mains power was out. the solar carts are still ideal for off gridding many tasks, the electric lawn mower, corded power tools, kitchen gadgets and much much more when the sun is shining and the grid is up. why purchase electric when i can make my own?
