Re: Solar panel wiring question
Rozz, there's nothing wrong with 3% and all, it is just a matter of "you can pay me now or you can pay me later". Heavy tinned cable costs a bloody fortune. One gallon of fuel now costs what one minute of "not too far" overseas phone time cost forty years ago. And phone time globally costs, haha, a fraction of what fuel used to cost them. Hmmmm.
Some of us are "watt misers" who would just prefer not to waste power in the cables. Other folks figure, cable is damned expensive, they'll tolerate more losses in it.
So you roll the dice, you choose whatever compromise makes you happy. There's no right or wrong about it, unless the watt police come on board and audit you.(G)
