  1. We have seen a big increase this year in the number of people reporting issues from very low voltage (measured well below the CFE stated tolerances / range), to brownouts / blackouts, and intermittent outages both short and longer. The key factors seem to be the growth in the area that increases overall demand, combined with a local grid capacity that was IMHO marginal at best the past few years, along with increasing use & consumption including as mentioned, more homes overall, more homes with AC use, and more pools (thus more pool pumps and some pools using electric heat pumps to heat pools). Solar electric helps a lot during the day as it is putting energy back into the local area which lessens or eliminates daytime demand in the home that is producing it, plus the excess goes to assist the local grid, thus actually reducing load on the nearby transformers and lines. More users are interested in or installing backup systems than ever before, as well, this can also help at night in two ways: 1 - if CFE goes down, the home still has power 2 - a user could choose to even feed from their stored energy at night, lessening the load on the grid as well. Hopefully CFE has plans to upgrade the local grid to keep up with the growth. After all, they are the "empresa de clase mundial". Si? 😉
  2. The organizers asked if this could be "bumped" as it is today and tomorrow in the Ajijic Plaza. 🌏
  3. The organizers also have the program agenda in Spanish:
  4. Feel free to PM or email, STI has been providing and installing (with trained local installers) at lakeside for 16 years. Full line in all types and sizes available with great pricing, installation, service and support.
  5. Our factory trained techs are aces at both new installs and existing unit services. Feel free to PM or email with your contact info.
  6. I'd like to respectfully suggest you just stop any name calling, and stop screaming "Fake News" as well to things you disagree with. You're more than capable of writing well reasoned responses, you've proven that, keep that going.
  7. Have you talked with the local store about it and had them check them, and also, how long has it been? New progressives can take up to 2 weeks for the eyes & brain to adjust to them, and often can feel like they are not made correctly until then.
  8. For stronger boxes, use the global standard....go to the liquor store!
  9. Yep - Febrero loco, y Marzo otro poco. Give it a few weeks to settle down. Also, I note the "drone law" quoted by another poster mentioned "commercial" drone operators.....if the intent is for a hobby and not a paying business, may be OK to DIY it - check it.
  10. Hi,

    Can you please contact me? I have questions about solar panels for heating the pool.

  11. I think this was his most recent post, witty and on target as typical.
