>>I have some - the typical shopping list is like this:
>>
>> Kyocera solar panels - 4 kc130-k, at approx. 680.00 each - gives me 14
>> volts at 14 amps on a good day (to charge batteries)
>> Mounting hardware - varies 100-200
>> wiring harnesses between panels - 50.00
>> wiring harness to charge controller (below) 20
>> Trojan l16H batteries - 2 to 4, at 270 each (+/-)
>> wiring interconnects -  Series to 12 volts, parallel from there 30.00
>> fuses and cutoff switch between batteries and everything else 40.00
>> fuses and cutoff switch between panels and everything else 40.00
>> charge controller - I have used shell 20's (120.00 with enclosure)
>> successfully, though they are a bit low rated for the solar load - I have
>> gone to Xantrex charge controllers with cute lights and battery
>> temperature sensors (twice as much - 245 plus 29)
>> voltage regulator (90.00) for 12 v to 18 v boost (range 6 v to 24 v)
>> timer   50.00 (sometimes I set them up to be off from 1 am to 5 am, to
>> save power during the gray, foggy period coming up)(December 1 to 
>> February

>> 1) - that's why 4 batteries, too. It is better to add batteries than
>> panels for the most part (see Kyocera panels above) and auto tilting
>> mounts don't give us that much advantage up here above 45degrees north -
>> just a few percent. In the southern lands, I'd give them a try.
>> Enclosure for the stuff - varies, depending on whether I find a sweet box
>> or build a little hut. ($ whatever)
>> Grounding stuff. - rods, #2 copper wire, wire lugs, clamps. 100.00
>>
>> About 5000.00 for a decent power setup for me. I am using Tranzeo radios,

>> I have a generator handy for charging on really bad stretches - a Honda
>> 2000i, for about 900.00, with a SERIOUS cable lock.

>> And, it's fun - bragging rights, ya know.

>> There are several good supply houses for the parts, and most of them are
>> Very Helpful. I'd tell you who I use, but that would be Bad Form.
