Wayne and I are very familiar with solar power up at the cabin. We've had our system in place for over ten years now. It started small with just one panel and two 6-volt batteries to run a 12-volt system, but it's grown to three primary and four secondary panels, and 12 6-volt storage batteries. But in winter, we barely generate enough power to keep our few lights running, and cell phones and computers charged.
Here in Phoenix they boast over 300 sunny days a year. What better place to use solar power. And Arizona State University in Tempe has become a leader in photovoltaic technology and installations. And what better mascot to have than "Sparky."
Many buildings on campus are topped with solar panels, including the Wells Fargo Arena where we watched the women of USC win a basketball game over the Sun Devils.
