Yes, those PV panels are my oldest. They are Amorphous types, 80w, some are 28 years old and still producing, 2 are early Monos at 100w.
They now run a 9 year old small 12v water pumping system, 4off 12v bilge pumps, that takes the water up 5 meters to a 2000 litre Polypropylene water tank that gravity feeds 300 meters to our walled garden.
Need a walled garden here to keep the local flipping Cows out of the veg plot. Farmers fences here are not the best. Its small dairy herds, less than a 100 cows, clay heavy soil, rolling countryside that is not suitable for arable. Most farmers send the milk for Camembert Cheese, (EEC protected regional product), that is only 10 miles away.
Yes that's Kiwi, a French cat from a local rescue centre, just checking that everything is ship shape. He's a big cat and swims, and chases my carp about. Very odd to peer into the water to see a cat coming up towards you, yes he has webbed feet.
The local hunters around here shot are previous UK cat, a guy leaning over the gate then driving away.
My Mrs, very Parisian French, gave the local Hunt what for!..... But then we need them to keep the Foxes under control, we are always losing our chickens, even in broad daylight.
