The solar panel - $600, extended 2 yr warranty -$100. Charge controller - $130, 3 yr extended warranty - $23. 1000 watt sine wave inverter - $285. total labor - $292. With misc. switches, circuit breaker, remote switch for inverter, etc., the total cost before tax was $1435. This includes 3-5 yr. warranty on all the parts.
Yes, I will post updates. We are in a temp inversion with dense fog (Boise, Idaho) so the solar output is about nil. But, I don't have to worry about battery drain - voltage is 90% of full charge.
