*Building a Solar System? Save some $$*
By: Jaden

When purchasing new lead acid batteries you get charged a "core charge" if you donít have an old battery to turn in. For somebody building a solar system that can add up pretty quick. Typically itís 10 bux per battery. 10 batteries is about 100 bux wasted by paying the charge. Thereís an easy way around that. That 100 bux saved could be two new batteries.

Just scrounge up some old batteries. I have access to an entire junkyard full of them. The owner is happy to off load them so then he doesnít have to mess around with disposal.

60 dollars of junk sitting right there.

Take a junker for each new battery you are going to buy.
