Solar project update

I had to move the hole thing because of to much power loss in the cables (to long cables). I have also set up a new panel and made some modifications on the frame for the panels, so now I can adjust the gradient to get more energy from the sun.
I have also made a connection so I can charge my phone from the system:)
The battery bank is now 239 Ah in case of some days with bad weather.
To save power I have installed a light sensor to control the lights I have on the outside of the house. There is also a timer to shut down the power for those lights in the middle of the night (no one is out here at that time)
The system works great, but I need more power. So next step will be a wind generator.
