Best Solar purchases from Amazon

No I do not get any benefit if you click on these links.

If money is no object, then buy a Bluetti AC200P with a 170W Merlins folding solar panel from the link above at Solar Advantage. If you are looking for reliability, the 170 Merlins and the Res-Q solar unit. If you want both features and reliability buy one of both with two Merlins 170 W solar panels. The 170 W solar panels retail about $700 which may seem pricey but it is not. As I said before only Merlins/GoPad 8 Watt can create PV power (electricity) when it is overcast. Other panels can not do this. I have tried many panels and even when they say they can, they require a minimum of light that is not what they promise.

I have spent over $3000 this year testing various products to see what works the best. I have tested most of the major players and given away the things that don’t work for me. Stay away from Powerfilm, cheap Chinese knock offs and anything that has a poor customer service experience. You will regret buying it. If you are serious about solar and own a home then look into professional panels either on the roof or on a pole in the ground. The payback for solar is only a few years and it increases the value of the home when selling. It is a no brainer to go with solar now.

Has solar power hanging outside my window made my room cold?

Has the solar panel that I have had hanging outside my window made my room cold? No.

If your concern about hanging a solar panel outside your window will make your room/house cold I can tell you it won’t. Just use the foam that I mentioned before and for extra protection I put a blanket at the bottom of the window. So even if a small amount of air gets through, it won’t go far.

In life if you want something you can find a way to get it. What I have learned is that it is our own lack of imagination and willingness to look silly that hold us back in life. I’ll give you an example.

I believed in the past that allergies couldn’t be healed. This is what science had taught me. Well science is a wonderful teacher but is is incomplete. There are things that science does not know, and we should be open-minded enough to try things that might increase new knowledge. I know that many of you will disagree with what I am about to say but that is ok. I don’t need to convince anyone. This isn’t about convincing anyone what is true, but rather that because I was open-minded now my life is better.

I went to a doctor who used NAET/NMT and who healed my allergies. I get no benefit from sharing this. Why am I sharing this? I was willing to spend money and gamble on an process/procedure that I wasn’t sure would work. If I was wrong I would lose my hard earned money. However if I was right, the quality of my life would increase. The result of this is that the quality of my life increased and now I am no longer allergic to the things that I used to be. I would have paid anything to not have those allergies, and I am so grateful and lucky that I found this treatment.

There are things in life that you have to take a chance on. Helping the environment with solar power and healing my allergies was worth the risk. Now I benefit from those decisions everyday.
