Yea that's why I called it a teaser.

I am having issues with my ftp right now.It's probably my fault but I don't have time to deal with it right now , so hosting pics is being a pain.

Dunnae worrae ladday !!

I'm taking the pics all the same.

---------

Here's where this project sits :

I have removed 1/4 of my basement ceiling.I have also cut stud to stud slots through the laundry room walls ajoining the garage.

I have found the path.The holes are in.

The first of 3 cables is in.Here's whats happening :I've decided to run 3 cables rather than one big one....
Cable 1 is armorflex 8/4.Cable 2 is armorflex 10/3........Cable 3 I custom made : it's a 7/14 + 3/12 in 3/4 inch armorflex.....

The 8/4 is in....the last two will be gravy compared to that bitch !

Cool project, I look forward seeing the end result. I ran the electrical in my house and hated wrestling with the 000 in my transfer and shut off switches, its amazing how much time you can kill just running large lines. I have been toying with a similar idea and just have not had the time to do it.

Enmax is offering some new thing with solar panels. It's basically some kinda long term contract that you buy out at the end of the term 10 years I believe. But you'd get the solar panels installed and the inverter which is the key to your puzzle yeh?

Nope.

The UPS' are the inverters.Not only that but they do AVR (automatic voltage regulation) and battery monitoring as well.

step 1 : set up whole house UPS.
step 2 : add a battery bank.
step 3 : solar panel and external charge controller.
step 4 : actually test a UPS in a 'continuous conversion' setup.This is a big maybe.

...but were on step 1 now , and it's a big one.

I've got pics but no way to host em....I'll get em up as soon as I can.

woop.

I've fixed all the drywall.

I'm in the process of specing out the enclosure for the garage side and all the meters etc.The panel side is ready to go except for breakers.

Gonna be cool......I'll be running 11,000 VA worth of UPS .Part of it solar charged.
