Using solar around the farm
« on: October 28, 2019, 07:33:17 AM »
I am trying to learn how to set up my own solar systems around my farm for electric fences, lighting a shed, outdoor lighting, etc. My sweetie has always done the solar on our farm and I really don't know how to set up my own system. I am working on setting up electric fences for my goats so this winter I will have to study to do this myself. We have often talked about me learning how our bigger systems work in case something tragic happens to Tim. I do have folks to fall back on now who do solar but it would be very important for me to know. I will go around with a notebook and have him show me battery maintenance. I had all the physics of electricity in college and I loved physics but I have never really applied what I learned then to our own system. Tim has never had physics but he had electricity in trade school and he understands way more than I do! Let me know if anyone else has struggled with their systems, especially females who have husbands who do most of this on your farm!
