Solar Sweeper

Making solar power in winter can be difficult. With only two hours of direct sunlight (if we get any), our batteries get a minimal charge. Add to that a dusting of snow, and our capacity drops to nearly nothing.

That's when I send out the solar sweeper to clear our panels. He's better at it than I am, especially with the two on the cabin roof and the one on top of his writer's retreat boat, the Gemini. I guess I could help out with these smaller panels that run the fan in our composting toilet, but why mess with a good thing. -- Margy


  1. I suppose that snow is headed down here - at least that is what they are saying - 2-7 inches by morning - but then it will melt and my grandsons will be sad - if only for a little while. Our youngest grandson wants to spend a day on Mt. Baker - he's been planning what he will wear to bundle up.

  2. LOL, you make me chuckle...I'm with you, why mess with a good thing...he seems quite effective at the job:)


  3. Thanks all for stopping by. - Margy
