Today was full of it's successes and mishaps. We got the photovoltaic cells churning out 24V and the Grid Tied Inverter and 150VDC Battery bank connected and running. However, during the process of pack up, Jeorge managed to short circuit the load cables, blowing part of the Solar Charge Controller which was a huge mistake. Apart from this blunder, the day went smooth and relatively fast. We can not wait to have everything up and running to feed the classroom.
