There are still some finishing touches left to be done but as I said the electrons are flowing! We've been running the refrigerator for the last 24 hours but it takes up to 48 hours to get to its minimum temperature. We are looking forward to keeping fresh food longer and having cool, dare I say cold drinks. Energy independence. Going off the grid. I'll let you know how it ultimately works out. Unfortunately our super efficient cabin LED bulbs are still missing somewhere in the US postal system, please keep you fingers crossed that they turn up before we jump over to the Bahamas.
A huge thanks to JP for help on the panel installation. I don't think I've ever met anybody with his limitless energy and joie de vivre!! I'm embarrassed to say this but at almost twice my age I had trouble keeping up with him. An inspiration.
