First Days at Trouthaven, April 2016

DSC01810All was not peace and tranquility. This is what happened to our batteries. Neither I, nor our installer, could explain why this occurred. Rip (our installer who, in his 20+ years of experience, had never seen something like this) confirmed that I had properly winterized the system prior to leaving last fall.

The speculation is that a perfect storm of circumstance occurred (heavy snow, cloud-cover) that must have totally obscured the solar panels. In the absence of sunlight, the panels could not maintain their current to the batteries, the batteries then discharged and froze.
