It seems there would be alot of interest in the EP500 but I am not seeing much talk and jabber. Why NOT?
There are 6 posts with the EP500 as topic and 4 of them were started by you, asking if you should buy it. The answer is yes. But why are you only getting 450 watts out of 5 180 watt panels in series, given you are out in the SoCal desert?
Angle and time of the day and I need to go Series-Parallel because of some shade occassionally… Of course not looking at the meter ever moment. Its up and down. I just have one good spot that stays out of the shade formed by the house… Everything is good.
