On my last post I forgot to mention that if you buy solar panels, or add anything to your solar system, you are eligible for a 30% federal tax credit! Wow! And some states also have a solar tax credit. Arizona, for example, has a one-time 25% credit.
That means that if you pay both federal and Arizona taxes, you can get 55% off your solar panel, regulator, and inverter purchase. I often hear that generators are less expensive than solar panels, but you don't get a tax credit for a generator!
I showed you my big inverter in my last post, but I also have a couple little ones - one to run the TV and receiver, and one to run my computer, printer, etc. The one for the TV is plugged into the DC outlet by the antenna connection.
The one for the computer is hard-wired to the light above the table. Just cut off the plug end and wire it to the DC wires for the light. (The other wire in the picture is for a DC plug I have down at the table.)
While I'm sitting here in Yuma, I have a chance to put out a hummingbird feeder. I think this is a female Costa's hummingbird.
And here is her hubby. See how long his purple beard is.
And this looks like an immature male to me, just starting to grow his purple facial hair.
Clearly I have too much time on my hands, because I was going through the stats on Blogger to see where my Google traffic comes from. Google "naked Santa ornaments" and you'll see that I am Number One! (We all have to be Number One in something...)
And of course I've been doing lots of dancing. This is one of the most unique spots, the three-walled VFW, where you can dance and watch trains at the same time.
