We save tons by DIYing it all! We had planks from our own sawmill, and the roof sheets were just 500€. So raising the roof barely cost anything (except a few hours of our life ) We still have to make it look nicer and replace the remaining roof sheets, but that's a project for autumn
I have some V2X stuff ongoing in the R&D pipeline, but this won't be a topic for this thread.Marktm wrote: ↑Sat Jun 05, 2021 5:17 pm Dala;
I noticed a couple of Leafs in your video - use one of them for the "DYI powerwall":D.
Seriously, here in Texas, the cost per kWh for a 2013 Leaf with decent bars is less than any "powerwall" and can be still used for transportation if it's the priority. I have contacted the V2X Nissan group about how to interpret their description of V2X capabilities in my 2021 Leaf's operations manual. I'll report any feedback.
dcbel apparantly has DC coupled the CHAdeMO to their hybrid solar inverter, so the technology appears to be commercially available.
I'm ready to "DIY" my third solar installation as soon as this V2X thing gets resolved, but not being a electronics designer, I've got to wait for a "commercial" power converter offering - like dcbel.
I sure do like your panel set up - I did something similar on a metal shed with aluminum framework built off the shed (after doubling up all the internal framing of the shed!). It's really fun!
Great that you are on the "Northern Arizona" forum also. Very informative for solar enthusiasts - especially "Bill - BB" - the guy must live on in their server room somewhere - but so much help to all of us.
