    Interesting. I’d never looked at my “lifetime” numbers before; I am keenly interested in daily harvests to understand the power budget but haven’t thought about the overall harvest.

    Caveat: mine are higher, relative to size, because I live in the vehicle and so place more loads on the system. The rig has had two setups

    • 570w array for the first 1,630 days = 2.82MWh
    • 750w array for last 457 days = 0.89MWh
    • total 3.71MWh

      What was the driving factor for moving up in size?

        I physically damaged one of the 3x 190w in that array. Since the originals were obscure NOS I couldn’t find another one to replace it. It was summertime so I was able to get by with 380w but that would not be sufficient to meet needs during other seasons.

        So I started looking for replacements that would fill the available space. I ended up with 3x of the Trina 250w that flooded the market, the ones that Will Prowse would make famous in his video.

        I made the swap on BLM land outside Las Cruces, NM and donated the 2x 190w to a family in a skoolie the next camp over. They had a 2x 100w set out so I figured they could use them. The deal was they had to come over and carry them them, I wasn’t going to deliver. :-)

          Love all of that.
