Hi,
I wanted to let the world know that I am running this computer on 90% solar.

Ok, I have a 19" CRT monitor and a P3 1K on solar poler, I cheated and used
the router and cable modem on grid power.

Once I change over to a note book and larger battery bank...
It will be 100% solar!

 My 180W of solar will make it. I just need to increase the battery bank.
BTW my panels are flat mounted on a trellis.
I live in the city so theft is a concern.

   Cool. I have a cordless lawnmower that I want to charge with PV.

 What is the 10% of the computer that isn't running on solar?
