My Small Off Grid Solar Power System

Solar & Wind EBooks



Just a quick look at my very basic solar power system. This should lower my electric bill a little, and if the power goes out I’ll have something better than my Harbor Freight 5-In-One power pack. For everything seen here the cost was about $650.

    Ha HA how funny! The ad for your vid (your monetizing) was about BUYING Solar Power!  (http://WWW.mcwireelectric.net). I clicked on the ads AND "liked" it also. Yeah, gonna watch this vid again. Cheap LEDs could give you light for a whole night plus plus…nice.

    Oh hey check this out. You use a string of LEDs and put them in a jar. The whole thing. Now it's a BIG bulb! I have a LED hand crank lantern from HFreight. 1 min crank lasts 20 min. So a hand full of LEDs wouldn't use jack in power>. Just sayin. Rock on John! Lookin good.

    A fuse is good and necessary, especially from your battery to the inverter. A circuit breaker or disconnect would be good from your solar panel to the charge controller so you can disconnect or turn off your charge quickly for maintenance or safety. This solar stuff is practical but also fun.

  5. I bought a solar system from harbor freight and it works. I have not done much with it other than hook up some batteries to it. Your using your free energy. I need to do a few things with this one. Hope to see more on what you do with yours. Thanks for the videos.

    this is a real mppt charge controller.

    i have the same charge controller and yes they are mppt press the mppt demo youll see pwm output then the final output you need a 24 volt or higher panel to get the mppt effect not a 12 volt.. the higher voltage the mppt will change to amps so at most youll get 4 or 5 more amps  from your panels say you haave 10 amops from your panel but your voltage is high it will take that and give you more amps.. 

    the max is 20 amps i get 21 amps sometimes off all my p anels but im using 36 volts….

  8. How many solar panels do you have ??

  9. Good video. I have the same charge controller and it is a good mppt for a small system…in my case I have few small systems that add up to a larger system…I prefer this instead of 1 big inverter and 1 charge controller…you can use some small charge controllers and some small grid ties or power inverters…in case of failure it is way easier to replace anything…I designed my system with this in mind…
