  1. In a recent thread, the talk about voltage inverters caused me to think of something. I know some of you folks will be more voiced than I am regarding power inverters. Not sure how you load them. But, one thing I learned from old school guys was, never load an inverter too heavily, especially Chinese made ones. The heaviest load I put on any inverter is 50% to 70%, tops. I never run them at 100% capacity. Imagine running one, day in, day out, at 100% rated capacity. How long would you expect it to last doing so? I had never thought about that, prior to someone asking me that ques
  2. The banner I added (above) is from Home Power, August, 2012. That is, Home Power will grant you full access to their entire list of back issues archived on their site. So, the offer is still current regarding the access you are granted if you subscribe for three (3) years to their eMagazine. I just renewed, although my subscription wasn't due to end anytime soon. I renewed now, because the new customer or renewal rate is currently $11.95. Folks, that is for a three (3) year membership to Home Power. Definitely take advantage of that deal, if you are even remotely interested in Altern
  3. I wasn't really in the market for a Pure Sine Wave, or any inverter for that matter. But, early yesterday morning, I came upon an auction where a guy had one. I forget what price it was on, at the time. I knew I wouldn't get it. So, I figured what the heck, and placed a bid. Through the day, no one else bid on it, so I remained the highest bidder. Overnight, I watched it, still no change. I finally took a nap for a couple hours. I figured I would wake up with the auction over and not winning - which has happened a lot over the years. Up this morning, a few minutes left on the auction
  4. If anyone is interested in alternative energy information (that I am just now organizing into appropriate folders), which I have collected over time, I will be happy to do so. Please contact me with your email address that is attached to Drop Box, Google Drive, or Copy, and I will share all of my files with you. Likewise, if you have files that you have been compiling, I would be happy to receive them as well. I have a main folder, with the following sub folders inside: Batteries Combiner Boxes Complete Systems Controllers General Information Hydro Electricity Inverters Miscellaneous PV
  5. Thanks, for this post. Renewable Energy Act of 2008 - (PDF file) - From the Philippines Department of Energy Website. Renewable Energy Act of 2008 - (webpage) - From the LawPhil.net website. Renewable Energy Act of 2008 - RA 9513.pdf - LinC I was able to download the pdf, but not upload it to this thread. If any other staff member has a fast enough connection, where they can download the file, and then upload and attach it here, I would appreciate it.
  6. Is anyone in Cebu or surrounding area using solar energy to generate electricity for their home? If so, how's it working out for you? Has it saved you money on your electric bill? Can you go 100% solar and not use the electric company at all? I appreciate any advice based on positive or negative experiences you've had.
