Jim Latham is lucky
enough to live in St Thomas, one of the US Virgin Islands - part
of an arc of islands we have all heard of, but few can
accurately place on a map without help.
Jim's style is very much relaxed chat
broadcasting - he is a pro broadcast engineer, and is a mine of
"My home in St. Thomas is off grid by choice and has 5000 watts
of solar panels producing about 20 to 30 kilowatts a day. The
system has a 950 amp 48 volt battery bank along with two
midnight solar charge controllers and an Outback Radian 240volt
inverter. We recently added an all-electric car, a Nissan Leaf
to the mix."
Living the dream!
