described solar charged battery home system

on field trip Friday August 30 to try to discover why so little power output.

9.1-megawatt center in Valencia County would finish by the end of the year. The center’s 122,850 solar panels

9100000/122850 = 74.074 W/panel

The 6.1 megawatt center’s 82,350 solar panels

6100000/82350 = 74.074 W/panel

Listen to Tom S explain why.

delivered a lecture on economics of solar at about 14:00 on Saturday September 6, 2014.

5-star imo.

too expensive for most home solar elecricity backup systems.

Very small scale solar/battery home backup systems is our interested.

Harbor Freight Chicago Electric 750 Watt Inverter Item #69660 Youtube presentation makes
one inverter per circuit point.

Reason for interest.
Coal burning. It's been outfitted with the latest scrubbing equipment. Generally 90 days of coal is kept at the plant, 180 days of coal is not unusual.

The last several months, BNSF Railroad, which delivers the coal to his plant, has started shipping oil fracked in Utah or somewhere to the gulf and cut coal shipments way back. ...

So, the [redacted] power plants in the [redacted] area presently have less than one weeks worth the coal.

Refrigerator possibly powered by solar/battery/inverter system. Power refrigerator and charge
battery during the day. Power refrigerator with battery at night. Let's investigate.

Better way should be objective.

Freezing entire package of chilis bad idea because chilis become monolithic block. Hard to separate.

Chilis removed from bag. Cleaned. Several packaged in sealable snack bag. Reinserted in original bag, then frozen.

A better way.

Concern with Obama/EPA war [jihad?] on coal may lead to electricity outages which require generator or solar backup.

CFV charging state call Wednesday September 3, 2014.

Caller snagged my number and phoned back to say that solar charged car only there on weekdays.

Reason for solar field trip discussed and nonproducing Stirling engines.

Battery-stored solar energy may power future homes

San Jose, Calif.-based solar manufacturer SunPower Corp. has outfitted a model home in Irvine, Calif., with a solar-panel system and battery that harnesses power from sun rays that can be used in the evening.

Albuquerque Journal Sunday August 31, 2014 page G1. 

prompted visit to CST to photograph product.

Boredom, 96 F heat, air conditioned car, and curosity then prompted essential non-gas-wasting field to trip to Belen, New Mexico city hall parking lot to discover status of

All nonproducing. Why?

Nonproducing anything should be made to produce or trigger 'decommisssioning' aka demolition and site cleanup.

Video showing Belen City hall parking lot may host a solar junkyard.

PNM Prosperity solar storage site visited on return to Albuquerque.

Site subject of FOIA information request.

And non-response appeal which has gone unanswered by DOE.

Scam/fraud reasons?

Pan video of site.

Mesa del Sol visit.

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is proposing to provide federal funding to the ... Fraunhofer's CFV Solar Laboratory facility

Fraunhofer snags $11.7M funding from DOE for 'plug and play' solar project.

The market for plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) is rapidly expanding — sales in the United States have tripled as Americans purchased more than 50,000 PEVs in 2012 alone.

Tesla signaled this would be no ordinary competition last fall, when it gathered economic development officials from seven Western states and unveiled its vision for a "gigafactory." ("Giga" refers to the large amount of power that batteries produced at the plant will store.)
