Let the electrons flow

For the first time since we started this project, solar power flowed into our new Victron inverter and out as perfect pure sine wave alternating current. I was like a child with a new toy testing things like how many amps does the toaster oven use or the vacuum or maybe the microwave. All in all it was a wonderful feeling to know that we no longer have to start the generator to make toast, grind beans or nuke some coffee. There is still a lot of tidying up to do and when the data converter arrives we will be linking up with our laptop to do some fine tuning on the Victron and turning on more of it's outstanding features.
