I have been trying for some time to figure out how to add pictures to a post, but I guess you can't unless you already have them posted online someplace.. So I'm just going to tell everyone that I spent this last summer building an 8 x 12 storage shed (with some help from my brother) on my ten wooded acres. This is where I hung the solar panels - two on the east wall & 4 on the south wall. The rest of the solar system went inside the shed. I was able to install the system myself (except for lifting heavy items) because I was given complete instructions from the vendor - Backwoods Solar in Idaho. They give you great support and help you adjust the settings on the system so it works for you. Because my current home is a 24' yurt, I had to install a breaker box and wire in it, as well as run the 175' of wire in piping from the solar shed to the yurt. I know that's a long distance but the shed is on the highest part of my property - the south edge. My property has some slope from southeast to northwest and is difficult to find an open area for the panels but I am happy with the results. The sun is too low in winter, but for about 8 months of the year I will be getting enough sun to run it without using the generator. Just wish I didn't have to be dependent on gasoline even for that - but I guess there's no avoiding it. Next summer I plan on building a sauna building with shower, composting toilet, dressing room & greenhouse on south side of it. I have to install some kind of rainwater collection system as well, for the water supply. If anyone will be visiting the Kenai Peninsula in Alaska next summer, please stop by & visit. And if you want to help, I would welcome it. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 907-399-0656 Thanks, Carol I guess I should also say that I would like to turn my property into a Permaculture Research Center for Alaska ( or at least south central Alaska) as I don't believe there is any in this State.
