Quote from: glenn kangiser on December 30, 2008, 10:39:38 PMEven at right after daylight I was getting 10 amps where I was getting nothing to very little for the first few hours. I had so much excess power today that I pumped water 3 times, or about 450 gallons and still didn't use all of the excess. The controller shut down the panels for part of the day.

Quote from: glenn kangiser on January 02, 2009, 02:51:48 AMI now have the gas reservoirs charged up and it seems it is going to work. Being so cold out it was a bit slow to respond but after lunch I came back to check and it was tracking the sun. If it is too marginal, I may go to a larger cylinder.
Quote from: glenn kangiser on January 02, 2009, 09:20:14 AM Propane is a better refrigerant than R12 and was basically put out of use by DuPont propaganda when they invented R12 and wanted to prevent it's use so they would have the only game in town on much of the refrigerant sales.

QuoteI have a 1934 refrigerator we still use and the refrigerant is sulfur dioxide. It is probably 400% more efficient than anything on the market today. Less than 200 watts 120v for about 8 minutes per hour.
