Solar energy...

A few weeks ago Candace and I helped a local Amish electrician install solar panels. Amish people usually remain off the power grid but are allowed to make their own electricity - using generators or solar panels - for their businesses. It was interesting to learn a little bit about solar energy and how much electricity these panels are able to supply. They usually charge a rechargeable battery with the solar energy coming from the panels.

 The breaker box for the panels.
 I did all the wiring myself - after being shown what I had to do, of course.
