Photovoltaic System

March 19, 2011 by Real Goods in RealGoodsTV with 2 Comments

Aaron Kotz sets up a mini photovoltaic system to power Real Goods’ cash register at SolFest XIV. By using the Kill-A-Watt to find the cash register’s (or any other appliance’s) power consumption, Aaron can easily tell how many watts his solar power source needs to produce before he sets it up.

  • Harry Simmelink: I agree, but people need to understand that adding Solar to their home is an asset that will increase the actual value of their property if / when they choose to sell.
