    What's at your bird feeder ?

    Either a Cooper’s or Sharp-shinned Hawk. Can’t see the head profile well enough to tell. Size would suggest the Cooper’s.

    Tire Chains

    New grippy snow tires or all season? All seasons are poor on any snow and worthless on ice. Chains or cables are a pain and only meant for low speeds on covered roadways. Does your VRBO know of a local shuttle service you could use if conditions get bad? Can you rent a vehicle with appropriate tires?

    Solar array 1 year update

    Side benefit of the panels on the barn roof is that they act as a solar shield and overall keep the inside cooler during the day.

    Solar array 1 year update

    UGrid connected systems have manual shutdowns as well and as automatic shutdowns to prevent back feed in case of a power outage. We have a year old 9 kWp system and a 10.56 kWp array installed this October. The 9 kWp unit produced just over 10 MWh in its first year. So much for 44 degrees north. Panels do seem to be more efficient in cooler weather. We were fortunate to be able to participate in a group buy on MDI to receive a big discount. Maine is currently net meter neutral. No point to produce surplus power.
