Note that packs 5, 16, 21, 44, 45 have dropped off the "cliff" by around the same amount. I see the same issue in my system, and it's an almost sure sign that one cell in each of those packs have died. Either detached/blown fuse, or popped CID.
Thank you for the comment. I'm slated to move pack 5 later this year, and that will give me a window to investigate for this.

Packs 1 thru 14 are all the same 'grey' modem cell from Battery Hookup that tested very well... and I've wondered why this would occur. I put it down to OPUS testing being pretty fuzzy somehow... but that's just a fuzzy thought rather than anything actual. It would be nice to know

Neighbor sold their house and I was checking zillow.com. Found this pic of my ground mount from their deck. I had wondered what it looked like. Shows you what I mean by keeping a 'low profile' (only 20deg) to blend in with neighborhood - looks like it was a good decision as it doesn't jump out in the view. Its hard for me to believe - but *many* folks do not like panels :(

Doesn't look out of place at all... Someone once said to me - "A home isn't complete without solar"..

I also have some mounted at a similar angle. Awesome during the summer, sucks during winter. Maybe mounting additional panels almost upright on the other fence would nicely balance out the output over the seasons?

Agree (about winter) and AGREE on more panels - but I promised the wife... no more panels. I'm working on her - maybe if I build her a greenhouse :)
