    cell c fibre and router changes

    Nothing like this but good luck fixing it . Cell C / openserve ( they keep blaming each other ) closed my account. No explanation why it happened either . Took them 8 days to get it back on line . Had to effectively reapply online as a new connection. Call Centre useless. No one really cares ...

    Generator or Inverter for residential use?

    For sure Ideally I would want something like .... If battery level is x % and solar power incoming at more than Y watts, then switch on circuit Z etc , and I would like it with minimal programming and messing around so no coding etc Sounds easy but .... haven’t really seen anything like it...

    Generator or Inverter for residential use?

    My geysers are hooked up to the inverter , on a timer to switch on for 2 hours , one goes on at 10am the other goes on at 12,15pm. But yes it does require some manual management on days like today where solar is producing almost zero power . So I switched them off .... they keep hot water in...
