Re: Inverter for hot water tank
You could always use a lower wattage heater element.
Now that I'm use my extra solar power to get the freezer extra cold... (Goal is no battery usage for the freezer at night.) I'm thinking about running my extra solar to an inverter, driving a lower wattage 120v heater element. It's extra energy anyway, so efficiency matters less.
Great minds discuss ideas;
Average minds discuss events;
Small minds discuss people.
The best minds discuss sailing (and a little bit of politics). I don't know why. It's a mystery!
