I am an expert in solar power having designed and built several remote pole mounted computer and camera systems for the United States Postal Service. Gil Lugo, their IT manager at headquarters, wrote me to ask if I could supply webcams for their construction sites using my SnapNSend webcam software. Then Gil asked me to supply solar power for one system to be mounted in Philadelphia. I designed a solar power system using 3 250 watt panels plus a large aluminum case holding several lead acid batteries, a battery charge controller and an inverter to feed AC power to the computer and camera and pan tilt camera control mounted nearby.
Over the years since I have helped RGSolar connect with homeowners, then recently was introduced to POWUR based in Del Mar California. POWUR (http://powur.com/kurt.shafer/learn ) has a team approach so you can be a POWUR solar advocate and make $1000s on your own work. Another valuable web site is my Invisco.com
