I was out doing a call and lo and behold he has got this big and I mean
big turbine on his property Plus a roof full of pv panels.
He just bought the place and he sorta knows that he is off
grid...........I am very interseted in this sorta stuff and I started
asking him 21 questions............I asked him how many watts that
turbine got etc....the number he ratteled off to me was enough to power
a town of 3000 lol.......any ways we walked into his house in the middle
of DAYLIGHT and it was lit up like a xmas tree I asked him why does he
have his lights on during the day..............he said bla bla bla no
problem...........then we looked at his two outbacks and some other
gizmos that we both had no clue about.........his gen his batts
etc........he had no idea what he has at all. Close to a hundred grand
This guys has got close to a hundred grand of off grid stuff and not one
eye ota of what it is all about......he thinks the batts are no good
because the genny kiks in alot
jeezus h he leaves the lights on 24 /7
I mean he has got one powerfull off grid system ......but he thinks it
has more power than the grid man what a waste...............

Argh... and you just know he's going to abuse the set-up until its run into
the ground, then you'll see him bad mouth alternative energy to his friends,
etc... :-( Hmmm... maybe he'll sell off his stuff at a discount to
someone who knows? Naw... prob some money-grubbing Albertan. (hehee!).
I see you're on the Shaw system as well... i'm out on the west coast. Tell
me, IS this guy in rural Alberta..??

Can't be too dumb if he can afford a house with 100 grand of stuff inside
alone, plus the cost of the house.
