Battery Maintenace results

A success. It has taken a week or so, but charge times lengthenned, with longer and longer periods in bulk rather than going straight to absorb. Internal resistance is falling, it will now deal with a tea brew first thing in the morning wothout a low voltage trip occuring. All bodes well for next winter.

The new panel mounting frames have lifted the panels clear of the worst shadows and regular days with a yeild over 3 KW hours are being experienced.
