New solar system, maximum yield test. How much can we expect? ☀️⚡ [Video]

I have discharged the battery in the garage as well as of the Tesla to have the maximum storage capacity available for this yield test. Usually, the new solar system is so powerful that the battery is already fully charged at around noon time. At this point, all solar charge controllers will throttle down and only supply as much energy as we need for the connected loads. The rest of the solar energy is then ‘wasted’ so to speak. But not today! But I have to hurry because the battery charges fast and we don’t want any controllers go into absorption or even float mode for this test.Unfortunately, the weather is not really optimal for this test, but it gives us a good first indication, what we can expect from the new solar installationPlease subscribe and join me on my journey of the Off-Grid Garage!For more information, please check out my website with links to all the batteries, materials, devices and products I have used in my videos: https://off-grid-garage.comThe ‘Buy me a Beer🍻’-link is here (on the website, scroll all the way down):https://off-grid-garage.com Thank you for your support!You can also click on the Thanks button under the video to support the channel.

Scottish independence will make Scotland wealthier [Video]

Thanks to @Phantom power14 for this wee cracker UK Chancellor Jeremy Hunt’s budget will see Scotland face crippling inflation with record taxes and spending cuts – a new austerity agenda that Labour is also signed up to. But it isn’t all bad news. In his effort to balance the books, Hunt has unwittingly revealed the true extent of Scotland’s wealth. A £14 Billion tax windfall on oil and gas. It’s an enormous figure, but not quite the whole story. Closer inspection of the budget reveals the UK expects to raise around £80 Billion from oil and gas taxes between now and 2028. A truly incredible sum. But there’s more. The UK’s new tax on electricity generation, including renewables, is expected to bring in £14 Billion in the same period. In total, the UK expects to raise a truly staggering £94 Billion in energy tax within the next six years. And some suspect it could perhaps be much much more.Where does this leave Scotland? To understand the significance, we need to realise just how energy rich our nation is. With 8% of the UK population, Scotland has 96%t of UK oil and 63% of gas. We also have 90% of hydro with 25%t and rising of U K renewables. Scotland is a huge player in UK energy and of the £94 Billion the UK government expects to raise in tax, an estimated £70 Billion will come from Scotland. What could Scotland do with this amazing sum?We could have a wealth fund just as the Norwegians and every other energy rich nation does. We could insulate every home in Scotland to ensure our people never need face heating or eating again. Scotland could develop its energy grid to harness and distribute power more effectively. We could make the transition away from oil and gas to clean power faster and fairer. Scotland could finance a huge expansion of publicly owned energy production and export what we don’t use, with the potential to sell ten times what we require. Scotland could attract business and investment with cheap power. The potential is huge. But there’s one thing in the way. The U K government controls Scotland’s energy and the tax on those profits go straight to the London exchequer. There’s only one way to change that: Scottish independence.https://www.gov.uk/government/publica…

India’s Adani defends media bid after press freedom fears [Video]

Indian tycoon Gautam Adani said Friday that media should have the “courage” to support the government when warranted, after his hostile takeover bid for one of the country’s top broadcasters sparked press freedom fears. “But at the same time, you should have courage when the government is doing the right thing every day.
