im looking into building 100% green items from used and repurposed stuff i would like to build a solar powered system to recharge my battery powered tools and run the lighting in my shop i will not be using any high powered power tools like a table saw or band saw mainly 18volt battery powered tools i would like to make this into a small group of like minded people work together and build green projects for people that would like to be more self reliant.

the problem i have is that im not sure how big of system i need. i have been looking into the harbor freight solar system but im not sure if it will be big enoff i would like to run two cfl's and battery charger for my 18volt battery powered tools this will be a part time thing so i would not have to recharge the betteries every day maybe every three days and the lights will not be on during the day or the week only on the weekends when im building a project and do not want to stop when it gets dark
It wasn't my idea to go to some crazy nightclub in the middle of nowhere. I just wanted to stay home and cuddle with this tiny ad:
