I feel like a complete novice asking for this information. I thought it was just a case of buying a product and switching it on. How wrong am i ? Buy this system for x amount , turn it on and get free electric for a few hours and start again the next day , if the sun is shining. is it not as easy as that ? you pay your money and away you go . We have solar lights in the garden and they come on every night without fail ,no cost no problem, batteries included I just want to say , hey yes, you can buy a system for x amount and it will power a battery for a certain ammount of time and run your tv etc., as long as the sun shines that day. please reply with any further info. dylan.

Very informative indeed. I am about to install a system in my own property to run as much of the household electrical appliances as possible. Avoiding the monsters such as kettles, boilers washing machines etc. This is in an effort to cut our monthly bills.
I have purchased the the solar cells directly from the United States and will be building the panels with my electrician colleague. I will be using a small inverter and a mix of second hand car batteries with an inverter and charge controller in the mix.
This is very much going to be a suck it and see project but will avoid the issue of large costs outwieghing the benefits.
If this works out ok we may even start producing panels for sale.
The panels I will be using will be:
18v 55w ones and I will have four of them.
I will keep everyone informed on my progres with hopefully very positive posts
