Big Bertha was too big

Adding Big Bertha to her three smaller sisters was apparently too much for the grid-tie inverter... See that burned spot on the circuit board?  That marks the death of the inverter.

So now, with the summer solstice approaching and the best solar insolation of the year, I have no way to put that energy to work.   And I am here because I believed that an inverter advertised as having a 250 watt capacity would be able to handle 175-200 watts. 

Silly me.
