I’m feeling so much better now that the solar backup is up and running.
No rewiring was needed but they couldn’t isolate the AC without rewiring. I’ll have to manually shut it down and switch to a fan to conserve power, if I even notice the blackout. I asked mom to watch out for them because I don’t want to drain my batteries. The stove and microwave are isolated, but the fridge is in the system, and more importantly, the outlets I use for my electronics and internet.
The batteries kick in so fast that the electricity doesn’t even blink. I’m not too worried though, since there’s usually plenty of sunlight to go around, so if they do get drained, they’ll recharge soon enough.
Later, when I have a break from work, I’ll go glasses shopping for a blue frame, until then I’ll wear the pink ones. I’ll post pics when I get the new ones.
