    How is this doing? It's been 3 months and you've been busy traveling but any news on this cause I'm so curious

  3. Ryan Patrick says:

    With all the hoverboard battery fires, aren't you a bit nervous about having a grid of them on your wall? lol

  4. Antonio Maceo says:

    Got 10 of the panels! Waiting for the next video so I can learn what to do next. Thank you so much for putting out this knowledge.

    Your neighbor is a ham radio operator. I bet he’d love to help you out on some of this stuff.

  6. Sam Osborne says:

    Probably shouldn't drill through the shingles. Its good you added the epoxy but if you have to take them down you might have a leaky roof, and an angry landlord.

    He visto la mayoría de tus vídeos y me gusta lo que haces, recomendarías hacer los paneles solares desde cero, comprar las placas y ensamblar un panel?

    i have 600+ watts of solar in parallel panels on my RV roof
    665 amphrs AGM batteries (aka 8000wattHr total, 4000 wattHr at 50% use)
    all my lighting etc.. including a 120v residential FRIDGE are powered by the batteries,
    solar and generator charge the batteries
    of course my batteries weigh in at 525 Lbs total,
    they are UPS server surplus take offs
    cost me $350, $70 each, in near new capacity, from my personal testing
    i love the idea of light weight Lithium, but cost factor for the amount of needed power is still too pricey for me, although i am getting interested in trying a few small projects, like building a small jump start box, or portable 12v power pack

    You covered up the ridge vent. This will make the attic quite hot on that side. I bet that type of solar panel would not last very long compared to the ridged ones that are raised off the shingles so they can have air flow under them.

    Can I use silicone instead of wet patch?

  14. Dennis Mathias says:
