RE: honda 2000 generator with solar panel assist..

I get credit for 35 to 45 cents per kWh during the day. I run my appliances, charge electric car and run the air conditioner heavily overnight paying 2 to 12 cents per kWh. This pricing is netted on my bill. I net use plenty of electricity for an annual cost of about $100. Last year the on-peak prices went up and I just smiled :)That's terrific. What is your kwh utility rate for consumption? I'm moving farther south soon, and I'll keep this in mind.

RE: Question about using Anderson levelers

When a site is out if level side to side AND front to back, then I will put, say, one block under one wheel and two blocks under another. Most sites are out of level in two directions.Is there another way? Ya, I suppose a van might be different...no tongue.

RE: honda 2000 generator with solar panel assist..

..and they sync to the utility grid and the power is output is not largeI've often heard about "selling power back to the power company" which I've been suspect of. Seems like running your house would take a whole lot. I would think it would take a monster array to be able to sell power back to the utility.

RE: honda 2000 generator with solar panel assist..

No, with a grid-tie household panel, sans inverter, sans controller.Are there panels that generate 120VAC?Not directly, but I believe the household panels have what's called 'grid tie' inverters on them.

RE: honda 2000 generator with solar panel assist..

Assisting 3,000W generator with 180W post-controller post-inverter solar power?No, with a grid-tie household panel, sans inverter, sans controller. To me, it's not 'old hat' because it's not practical.

RE: honda 2000 generator with solar panel assist..

It seems as if we're all interpreting this differently. Isn't this about a 120v assist directly from panels to the generator? No batteries or inverters.

RE: Solar project started

:) Retired no moneyOk, well, you can get inverters much cheaper than the Victron.

RE: honda 2000 generator with solar panel assist..

Maybe you can do some further research and be the 'go to guy' on this one. However, I need some convincing this sort of setup would be practical. Are you completely eliminating your batteries and inverter? You apparently won't be doing any solar battery charging. And, this setup will only work on sunny days, and only mid-day, and certainly not at night. And, I'm not clear on how this is going to sync with the generator. There are already 'assist' type inverters on the market, with solar charging the batteries.

RE: Question about using Anderson levelers

My heavy 5er broke so many Andersens I decided it wasn't working for me. I'm not sure why you need your wheels at different heights.
