Running the pumps from sunshine
Running the pumps from sunshine

It may look like a rat’s nest of wiring, but let me assure you that the greenhouse is now connected to the 12V system, so the pump is running on sunshine!

Greenhouses are a great way to experiment with different types of solar energy, however it is captured.

The bad news is that the big 185 Ah battery that was loaned to us to get started has stopped holding a charge. That’s why it’s all running off of a car battery for the moment while we source cheap or free batteries.
