I love your site so much!!! Thank you! I love to see more and more people join! I tell everyone about this site when they ask me how "I" "know" so much about construction - I really don't, but I remember what I have picked up from the forums, and it has made me feel more confident and seem like I know what I am doing. I save so much $$$$ with this knowledge. I am now on my second owner-builder project. Muchas gracias. We should try this in the Latin Market!!! I'll translate! Have an amazing day! You have created something awesome!!

They're finally here! I'd been planning for this since I ordered them back at the end of March.


The shipment itself is on five pallets and they weigh about a ton each, so of course I couldn't take them all. I went ahead and got one this evening and Solar LeRoy will be swinging by with his car carrier truck to get the others tomorrow. Our plan is to move them this weekend (weather permitting).

The batteries themselves come in a huge, heavy crate that looks very laminated (to handle the weight I presume). There are six in each crate, heavily padded with dense cardboard for shocks and stuff. Each battery seems to be in its own very heavy steel "box," probably meant to protect the more fragile plastic and to serve as mounting points for the batteries once they're in the rack.

We've got a lot of work ahead of us, of course. We've got to get the other batteries up here of course, and then there's work to get the third charge controller hooked up, build the mounting rack, etc.

But they're here!

The box is pretty heavy, all things considered.
