Using technology to live sustainably and model a lifestyle based on renewable energy and conservation.
Being the change I want to see in the world.
Growth curves: adding panels to my array each year increases the power output in daily kWH. 2013 summer will ROCK!
Since there are NO public charge stations in ME, used a #ChargePoint station 1st time yesterday in Marlborough MA.
My workshop is now maxed out with solar panels and collectors. 2 Panels on right were this weekends project.
Mounted Enphase M215 to the back of the Solar World SW245 panels with SS screws and lock washers for bonding.
Spent the day making angle aluminum mounts for 2 SW245 panels for S wall of my workshop.
I picked up 2 SW245 panels from altE warehouse in MA in my Chevy Volt. So cool that they fit in the Volt! :)
After the snow storm, the first job is to clear off the solar panels and collectors with an 18ft snow rake.
Another view as I clear snow. Clear ground right next to the building and 40" drifts nearby due to high wind.
Digging out from 2ft of snow with 40" drifts on a nice sunny day post #Nemo. Love my Craftsman snow thrower!
Wind storm damage today from 54MPH peak gusts over night. Worst wind damage since we moved here in 2001!
Our 5.2kW solar array has produced 13.3mWh since installed in 2009, and offset 9.22 tons of CO2 + works great!
Snapshot of #Sandy's weather impact from my weather station in midcoast Maine (close to Bath).
Monthly email report from On-Star for our 2102 Chevy Volt - looking good!
PVWatts solar energy production estimator is surprisingly accurate! http://www.nrel.gov/rredc/pvwatts/
My #Enphase #solar array lifetime history. Added 2-3 panels each year on left(north). 12.2MWh total and counting!
Had to protect our 4 blueberry bushes with electric deer fence this year. Got over 5 gallons of berries so far!
My ioBridged connected Geiger counter detected the coronal mass ejection on 7/19. FMI:http://bit.ly/MPeHwZ
I LOVE my Superfocus glasses! No need for bifocals! No reading glasses, zoom focus! http://superfocus.com
Got the expanded #ChevyVolt carport all framed in and ready for earth grading and gravel.
Expanding covered parking for our #ChevyVolt - coming along nicely with neighbor John's help.
