HI Steve the question is easily put, very often I find great stuff that I would like to buy, often many of these items come from abroad and after a few times I have started to notice that it's really difficult to manage to apply what they teach because made for all different systems. I don't have any problem with metric conversion or stuff like that. though knowing that electrical things aren't easy I would want to know if the dvd set can be easily used in Italy I mean if in the dvd set you say go and buy this sort of inverter is it, a part from the translation, I mean under a tecnical way something that I can find even here?
It may seem a dumb question but I really can't afford buying something that maybe I'll never be able to use because based on a different voltage system. maybe we don't think about these aspects or I'm exagerating and all is well but thought it was ok to ask
I have the project of this cabin that i will build in october and I would like to set up a small fotovoltaic panel to have a battery bank for little works with electric sawmill or stuff like that, or even justing putting some light for evening dinners at the end of a day's work in the field.
you can see I really don't know anything on electricity. How much power do i need, is it worthwile to embark in such an electrical project ... that's why i wanted to buy the dvd's.
maybe I'll learn something

Hi, Lorenzo. Great question for permies not based in the US or Canada What you need to know is whether the Home Battery DVD's are available in PAL (region 2:Europe) format or just in region 1 DVD (North America) format. Once that question is answered, then you will know what you need to do. For future reference, there are a number of media converters available that are not too expensive, around USD30. I use MacTheRipper, a software for Mac, with great success. For Windows, the following forum discusses some other options: VideoHelp Forum

He's NOT going to buy the DVDs from us, and pay $20 to $40 for shipping, he's just going to click on the banner at the top of the screen advertising my 'DVDs' through scubbly and just download the video.

the answer is YES... EVERYTHING I show you in the videos will work in Italy. Of course your inverters will be 220 volts out and ours are 120 volts, but setting up the system is 100% the same. You'll still be 12 volts DC for the batteries and the chargers etc....

After you take the course you will have NO DOUBT as how to make a system, I guarantee it. I cover everything in such explicit detail you'll know how to do everything.

Steve

Great thanks Steve, you got the question. And thanks for the answer you gave to me on the other thread. It really is just a matter of knowing what one has to start to work on. I mean one can fuck up with plants and maybe they don't grow or just stand weak and then just die, that's sad but you really don't do any harm, except to the plant, but with electrical stuff it's a bit different. if you fuck up you can find yourself with a burning house
today it's true online one can find a lot of stuff it all sounds good and you think wow this will be perfect for me. but today it's easy for a company that has a great capacity in doing great .pdf or power point presentations to have nothing to give, just junk, that they hide behind great marketing skills.
I'll read through the other threads to see your answers on more tecnical matters, and keep the forum bookmarked for future digging.
