    I don't like winters, I wouldn't mind if we got a bit of decent snow but all we seem to get in the mild south west is rain, and lots of it, our weather comes straight off Dartmoor here.

    Just updated per the request for posts on solar power & the fact that I can not edit my earlier posts to correct the image failure.

    Solar panels on the power shed.
    [​IMG] The new Gel batteries we had installed to replace the old lead acid batteries. This is a 24 volt DC system converted to 240 volt AC. This powers the main house & the outside laundry.
    [​IMG] The small green shed in front of Elm Cottage is the power shed & it has solar panels mounted on its roof. This is a 12 volt system.
