Preci (Umbria)

Preci is located in the Province of Perugia, in Umbria. It is a medieval burg (13th century) developed inside a fortress, which was almost entirely destroyed by an earthquake in 1328. Reconstructed, was elevated to a Municipality in 1817. During the last centuries of the Middle Ages and the modern age (at least up to the seventeenth century), reached a certain reputation for a School of Surgery specialized in the extraction of kidney stones. In October 2016 Preci as Castelsantangelo sul Nera, Visso and Ussita, was struck by new seismic shocks that have damaged the Abbey of Sant'Eutizio and made the historic center completely unusable.

Ciao tutti.  We have a home in Umbria, and I would like to know if you need solar energy to operate your pool?  We do not have a heated pool and are not interested in installing solar panels due to the cost.  Currently we have 4 solar panels and 6 batteries that have been there since we purchased
