Are You Sure You Want The Economy to get Better?

Posted on June 19, 2012 at 2:21pm 6 Comments

I think if you ask the general public who the average "do it yourself solar energy enthusiast" is they would say he or she is someone who is trying to save some money. And sure, that's true for a lot of us. Including me! 

But that is just part of what motivates most of us, I think most of our members are motivated by what I call "fear of being plunged into darkness". And no matter how small your system is you will avoid that when Mr. Big Grid decides it's your "brown out day"…

Renewable Ray here, site administrator for the Harbor Freight 45 Watt Solar Panel Kit Community.

I have been getting a lot of private messages from members about a few things and I thought I would create a blog post to touch on a few of those.

Probably the biggest complaint I have been getting is that myself or another administrator [oh yes, they are lurking out there] has edited a members post. Well, sorry but that won't change for so many reasons. One of them…

Day One.....The Water Saving Bucket Garden is Up and Growing!

Posted on March 28, 2011 at 10:51am 2 Comments

I was hoping that some of my good friends here on the Harbor Freight Solar Kit Forum were doing some gardening and would visit our newest site The Tucson Bucket Garden and share some input on what we are doing with our water saving gardening technique.

Our first six buckets are in the ground and our adventure with growing veggies in bottomless buckets is happening! Not only does it appear to be saving a TON of water…

Has anyone used an MPPT controller with the Harbor Freight 45 watt kit?

Discount Solar lists an MPPT controller(250 watts) at $109. I wonder how that might work with the Harbor Freight kit.

Thank you. This is a nice entry level sight.

Kinda interesting place here. I'm just beginning my quest into solar power and in the process of learning. The HF set-up is really a great way to do it. Its perhaps not the "best" machine but its low price and availability will launch many DIY folks into the quest to instal and become familiar with this technology. I'll visit and post here when I have some questions and have something to report.
