Part three of my Budget Solar Install, where I hook up workshop lighting to a 1500 watt pure sine wave inverter . Large power tools will continue to run off the Honda 3000 watt generator - the heart of any solar electrical system.
In Part Two I installed a charge controller and a pair of 12v batteries.
In Part One I installed the solar panels on the workshop roof and ran the wiring inside.
I bought the charge controller on Ebay from Yves Julien http://cgi.ebay.ca/ws/eBayI...

Yves is very helpful, should you have a question. First class vendor!
