My farm is solar powered only... Many people think you've power to burn but I can assure that's not the case.
I do run 240vac to the house and environs via an inverter and the Solar plant is a 24vdc system.
What recommendations for a large scale (up to commercial size) do people suggest. I obviously do not want a pump or pumps/s running 24/7.
I have looked but can't find if the CHOP system (which IMHO is an elegant piece of design!) runs its sump pump constantly.
I am ready to build a plant out of recycled parts but am needing to know the most energy efficient style of system.
I have read the threads pertaining to the Yandina setup and am saddened to hear of its slow decline despite the best efforts of a few saints. The system design is of great interest to me, but again, does the pump run full time.
Also does anyone have any experience in running a media based/NFT/DWC combo. I have read the Maleny thread as well and think that will work for me in a commercial sense (i.e. Best of all worlds) But again, what are pro's/con's of this style. Does a conglomeration of system designs in fact add robustness to a total system? In terms of filtration it must surely be the ducks n$%ts?
So many questions, so little time!!
If you got this far I thank you and I look forward to hearing from the community,
