The Deep Cycle Is Dead [Apr. 8th, 2009|12:49 pm]

The battery place says it looks like the deep-cycle battery is no good. :-(

I may try hooking it up anyway, just to see if it has enough juice to run the lights. If it does, I can use it for now and not have to worry about keeping it fully charged, because it's already wrecked.

I guess I need to get some solar panels or something.

How did you pick them?

Aren't those houses going up fast!

Yeah. I bet those are the model homes they're eager to show off.

The solar installer is a friend of mine. That was my only criteria really. I trust him.

I don't know if you've heard, the Austin Energy rebate went from $4.75/watt to $3.25/watt (or something like that) a few weeks ago. However, the Federal rebate is 30% of the price, with no cap. (The cap was $2000 until Dec. 31, 2008.)

That's good info, thanks. Let me know how your solar works out.

I'm going to take the house tour when they are ready.

Sorry about the battery. I still think that if it were me, I'd get a little generator. Even with solar there will be cloudy days. They have small quiet ones.
