Anyone using solar power for their boat lift and dock? I am going to finish up my dock this Spring and I am trying to design a simple solar system to power my Aluminum Boat Cradles lift and have additional power for a few lights computers, etc.
I was going to run electrical service down my lot but it is going to cost about 10k just to run the underground power plus the monthly costs.
I am thinking about a system with a 3000W inverter, 3 deep cycle batteries and a 100w solar panel. I just want to be able to raise and lower the boat several times a day, run a computer, have several led lights I can turn on. Nothing that's going to constantly run. I am using a generator now but it's loud and takes up a lot of space.
