Bought Thermocore portable air conditioner with heat pump. 11,000 BTU heat pump uses 1250 watts. Partly runs off my solar panels and Im still 300$ ahead on my electric bill from summer solar. So far Im stoked. Free clean heat with no wood mess. More solar next.

No Bill it is not. The one I read had thin wires in a grid on the inner surface of the glass. Inner surface to protect from the elements and could also be applied to existing windows although some of the language seems familiar. I admit when I read in the article that they were about 2 years from production the switch in my brain flipped LOL to put it on the back burner I read A LOT and my interests are wide and varied. Im also in the middle of a bathroom remodel and shower install. My solar project is somewhat complicated too. My south facing deck is 12.5 x 30 and sun baked so Im building a roof over my deck that lowers and raises the south side to adjust the panel angle and shades my deck and will morph into a solarium in the fall and winter to help heat my home

Steve Farmer I just did a Google search for (Powerwall problem ?) and came up with the article. It is a BloombergBusiness article the 7Kwh model does not charge well from PV and the 10Kwh model is only for outages and only is good for 50 charge cycles per year. They sound like glorified junk. Im buying my solar panels from ebay 120$ for 100 watt panels and 150$ for 150 watt panels both are monocrystaline the 100s come from china the 150s are made in Indiana 200 miles from me. Might seem silly but I bought 4-100s first b4 I found the better deal on the 150s so I am still buying some of each so I can keep my overall array symmetrical. The clear solar panel article was sent to me by my brother who is a corporate attorney and very educated and intelligent. Hope this helps you.

Only a couple weeks after Tesla unveiled the Powerwall I read a long article about the Powerwall of all things having some problem accepting the charge from PV. The article did not focus much on the actual problem but on the business and financial issues it was going to cause for both Tesla and the many whom have already ordered the Powerwall. The article came from a reliable source and I believe it to be true. On a happier note Im up to 1400 watts of panels and Im adding another 200 watts next week. My elec. bill in down to 20$ a month. Im paying close to 1$ a watt for panels and they will pay themselves off in less than 2 years. I also recently read that a new company is starting to produce clear solar panels just wires attatched to the glass that produce 50 times as much power as reg. panels not only can they be used as windows they can install them on your existing windows= payback in 1-2 years. I love solar LOL.

Im using the Sun grid tie inverters off ebay I have some for 12 volt and some for 24 volt the 24 volt seem to put out wore wattage I think they are more efficient since they dont have as far to go from 24v to 120v

Live in michigan did the rocket mass heater 2 years last year 300 $ to heat my 2100 sq foot ranch buying wood. Im switching gears this year doing PV solar and heat pump. 4 months ago my elec bill 125 $ on budget plan and I owed them 400 $. Paid the 125 today they owe me 56 $. Solar is amazing now cheaper and more efficient than ever my panels are putting out a little even at night. Have 920 watts of panels + a harbor freight set 45 watts. The HF kit just charges batteries that I switch to my grid tie inverter after dark. They do not come any badder. And Im not playin games.
