For Solar Powered People
We had the closest lightning strike I have ever experienced over the weekend and apart from nearly jumping out of my skin a whole bunch of our appliances were blown. One of which was the 220V transformer located in my gates control unit.
Yesterday I retrofitted the gates standby battery system with a 25W solar panel and solar charge controller and it’s working like a bomb. My FIRST ever major appliance to be completely disconnected from the grid.
