I have created a new Solar Home Page to make it a bit easier for folks to find all things solar related.
There is general information, Tips & Traps, our Glamstead project information, and the solar book project that I spoke of a while back.
The new page is a work in progress since I am trying out a few new ideas for page formatting so I am sure it will change…just not sure how as of right now.
So go take a look you might find some interesting information there even if you are all that interested in solar power.

I appreciate your ongoing emergency prep commentaries, especially your recent Solar odyssey. I am wondering how you intend to ‘harden’/ protect (or shield) your solar array from EMP? My research resulted in two main potential options: EMPShield.com, and DisasterPreparer.com. How do you intend to protect your solar investment from an EMP?
As an aside, I maintain an older 4.3 KwH portable system for emergency use (Solar-Maxx 6000 from TotalSolarTechnologies.com) – I wanted a portable option rather than a whole-house system. Thanks for your ideas.

How did my EMP article help?
I still have to do the review of the EMP Shield…just time…need more time 🙂
Hi AH… when I originally asked about EMP protection, I had already researched and purchased EMP shield for both my home, and for the portable 4.3 kWh solar generator that I have. However, I didn’t want to bias your opinion, so I asked how you intended to protect your whole house system. I appreciate the thoroughness with which you corroborated my judgment, as well. My system was purchased in 2015, and uses six AGM deep cell 120 amp hour batteries. I am keeping my batteries trickle charged, and was afraid that an EMP surge would render my portable system useless.
I very much appreciated your research. Thank you.
