    What batteries are you using?

    I am using 6 Volt Trojan T-105, 4 in parallel and then two banks in series for 24 volts.

    Would you care to share where you were able to get them from?


    I am currently searching for at least 24 (qty) 2v batteries too (48 volt system). But I'm not sure where to look or who to talk to. I don't live near any big cities, where scrap yards or battery recyclers would be, but would be willing to drive there if they had something.

    I tried posting some Wanted Ads on craigslist, but that was a joke and waste time.
    People kept deleting my ads, even though they didn't violate any current policies. Apparently craigslist use to ban any posts for batteries for some stupid reason.

    Anyway, the search continues....

    I am also looking to get 2-(qty) Freedom II MW&S turbines, which is how I found this site.
    Hope to get everything I need and get my off grid system up and running in a couple months.
