sheilded cable from the house for electricity.
Then, today, I saw a narrow boat with a windmill on it and wondered if I
could dispense with a mains connection and use "green power". After all if
they can run things like lights and a TV .....
Has anyone one else tried this? I'm thinking I'd be running lights (in the
shed) and possibly a computer in addition to the layout. I've got an old
laptop which will run what I need so 19.9vdc 3.4a for that and I could use
low voltage dc lighting. So far, so DC but I want to use DCC to control
the trains and the reason for the computer is to apply train
control/points/signalling (one day). I might want some heating too. I'll
have space for batteries and our house is in a good position for wind power.
Unfortunately the roof of the shed won't be ideally placed for solar pv but
I can find a way around that.
Yes, it's probably a pipe dream but if you don't ask....
