    Greetings from California! Empty Greetings from California!

    Hi all! I can't remember how I found out about the solarflower project, but I'm glad I did!

    My name is David and we currently live off the grid in Central California. We have about 2.9kw worth of panels and a 5kw propane generator for backup. We have 16 deep discharge batteries which can give us about 3 days without sunshine before the generator power is needed. We have two sheds and I got a 65 watt solar panel from craigslist hooked up to 2 jet airplane batteries I got for free to power one shed, and the other still needs power.

    I'm interested in solar ovens, solar power, and independent living.
