Solar Toasting

If you wish to run a toaster on a solar system, you may want to look around for a low power one to keep your inverter size as low as possible.

Big W are currently selling a 700 Watt unit (Abode KT1600G) for $7.95. Our technician Ray tried it out - it drew 31.5 Amps on the DC side of his inverter. It took 2 minutes and 20 seconds on setting 4 (which makes the toast reasonably crisp) for his wholemeal toast. That is about 30 Wh per toasting which is a very modest amount of power.

You can still order online or over the phone, and pick up items from RPC (our show room is closed however, and appointments must be made to pick up orders). We are still doing site inspections, keeping the recommended social distancing.
