Re: DC voltage

Mark, to keep installation cheap, 24 volts is the way to go in my opionion. This allows you to buy off the shelf electrical components at low cost. Higher voltages can be more efficient and reduce wire sizes, but other component cost such as breakers  and the like get more expensive.
