"Great job Jeremiah. Being without power for any length of time sure reminds us what we REALLY need. I am doing a couple of these this week myself. Gotta figure out what I am going to do for fixtures over head in the shop."

Converting A Table Lamp To 12 Volts (For The Harbor Freight CFLs)

After the power outage on the east coast due to the severe storms that swept through over the weekend before the 4th of July, it was nice to have the 45 watt kit and a deep cycle battery to charge my phone, use my laptop and television (conservatively), run a fan and one of the Harbor Freight 12v CFLs.Of course, the included wiring for the bulbs isn't exactly aesthetic nor usable for general lighting in a home.  So, I decided to pick up a used lamp from our local Goodwill.…See More

"Welcome to the forum Titanflopper!  I got hooked on one kit and a marine deep cycle battery as well and hope to get more panels soon and upgrade to better batteries.  Its addicting but its a good addiction."

GE GeoSpring How Water Heater

Just noticed the other day that our local Lowe's has the GE GeoSpring hot water heater on clearance (last year's model I believe).  It might be a good candidate for replacing our old water heater in the future.  Summers are often warm here and the heat pump function would be awesome for cooling down the the 1st floor.In the winter, yes it is cold here in Virginia sometimes, but the water heater would be installed near our wood stove (same setup as the current water heater).Has anyone else here…See More
