    November 7, 2019I'm shopping for my first solar power system and finding good deals on everything except the batteries. I can easily afford the Renogy 400w/12v Monocrystalline panels, and it includes a basic charge controller, but the charge controller doesn't have a di...  more

      Jeff and Sandra Doan November 9, 2019 I understand being on a budget! My solar system started with four 100w panels and a MPPT controller ($650), mounted on a homemade pivoting frame. A solar tracking system ($115), and four 105Ahr lead acid batteries ($99 at O'Reilly's Auto Parts). I added a...  more
