Off-grid no electricity

It’s that time of year again.. This morning we woke up to no electricity. We didn’t think it was time yet, but now we know for sure. Every Spring and Fall we have to adjust the solar panels angles to get the best sun. Spring and summer if the panels are at 45 degrees they don’t get a full day of sun, as the sun rises behind them, and don’t hit the panels until later in the day. So sometimes in May we lower them to 32 degrees. Last year we had no issues until the end of May, I guess we’ll be lowering them sooner.

Don’t worry we don’t run the batteries low, the inverter is set to shut down at 50% battery.

This week we are getting things ready for Saturdays May 6th concert with Jay Floyd , Monday May 8th Camping and Movie “Avatar” and May 19th to 21st Nomad Gathering in the Desert !

I’m hoping to add pictures of the products that we offer at the Dusty Nail General Store on it’s Facebook page.

We have been working on the West Mesa Haunted Hay Ride in October. This year it will be 2 nights of Hayrides. A 45 minute journey through desert roads . Not appropriate for all ages
