PV System Prepped

This is my neighbor Michael who I helped put together a small 205W PV Solar system for. This will be installed in a remote cabin, but we did all the cable making and tested all of the equipment in town to avoid multiple trips to his cabin and back. The install went smoothly without any sort of complications. The price of the system came to about $2,000 which includes the Evergreen 205W PV panel, charger controller (Xantrex C40), Inverter (Magnum 612), and a pair of new golf cart batteries. It's a small system, but pretty much all anyone needs assuming they have other ways to deal with heating and cooling their living space. The equipment is mounted in a old dresser drawer and the batteries in a ice chest.
