Win for solar!

broktreWoohoo!  I just wanted to tell someone!

My yard is very shady so it wasn’t until after my own tree fell down that I was able to build a solar panel and tracking system.  Even then my view of the sky was limited due to the neighbor’s tree.

I have been hoping for months that it would fall down and give me a few more hours of sun each day and today we got a powerful front with 40 mph winds through the area.  The tree finally submitted to my wishes and the branch that shaded my panels broke!

Now I have more motivation to complete the tracking circuit and get my system operating like I had planned.  I’m so excited.
