Solar power set up for our off grid cabin.
I really wish I could finish mine in just a day or two, I am really excited to see how much I save..
I was thinking that's hardly any power from those solar panels but then your cabin's power requirements aren't very high.
The crystals used in Harbor Freights panels must not be very efficient. You can get a 235 watt Renogy or similar panel with monocrystalline cells for roughly $400 on Ebay. dimensions are 60 inches x 40 which looks like you have over that in those 3 panels.
Thanks for the comment! In my newest solar power video I have a pure sine wave inverter (Xantrex Prowatt 600) hooked up – found that I could not charge the laptop or power tools with a modified sine wave inverter.
this is an amazing home..
I just purchased a nice plot of land in the wilderness & I am in the process of building a small simple off the grid solar cabin just as you have done. Im planning on building a single gable12-12 pitch metal roof 2 story small rectangle We also share the same name! interesting I enjoyed the video, thanks for sharing have you considered a pure sine wave DC to AC inverter? I plan to run a array of 4 240 volt polycrystalline panels and a vertical windmill trickle charging my array of deep cell bats
Thanks …. it is pretty amazing!
OMG, what a view!
entra em contato com eles as lampadas ABOUTSOLARCELLS.COMXA.COM podemos iluminar, uma ABOUTSOLARCELLS.COMXA.COM comprar, material solar.
Sweet, I'm so envious.
Did mention our was built in 1952. Wife wanted to tear it down but it was in great shape and the history is great. It is just like yours. A work in progress.
Great videos. It is amazing that your cabin looks a lot like ours on a small lake in Tennessee. Ours was built on site with trees cut on site and a portable saw mill. All hard woods. Can't drive a nail without drilling a hole first. It had a flat roof and until 3 years ago when we added a new high pitched roof with forest green metal. Looks like yours now. We love our cabin and I have added a second 12 volt wiring system so we can use solar so we have both 120v and 12v. We loose the 120v alot.
How much did it cost you to build the cabin? land and home?
Hands down, better way to go is like The Power Pot, thermoelectric pot that makes 5 watts just cooking. You can get bricks and put em on the woodstove and power as well. Custom build easily with TEG (300Celsius Seebeck) at customthermoelectric dot come. Also you should see the pots already made at theepicenter dot come. Now you got juice from heat, anytime of day or weather. Throw in evacuated tubes for solar heated water.. 220 plus degrees..in minutes, so fourth.. you get the idea.
Awesome place, if I may ask how much for the cabin!? Thank you..
If you can use a cell phone at the cabin, you can get wireless Internet service.
Do you have any info on your cabin? I would love to see a layout of it!
The fridge is propane, so doesn't use electricity.
really — only 220A/H for your whole house? I have a 36' sailboat that has over 400 a/h and I can barely make it through the weekend (no charging)– Do you have a frig? that usually uses at least 50-60 a/h day
Pretty much …. only running 12v lights and an RV pump for water. Use the 400w inverter for charging the laptop, cell phone, cordless drill, etc….
Do the solar panels provide for all your electric needs?
@larsonb33 Thats just not right you should be able to do what you want
@N4ANE I am afraid that it is not
@larsonb33 THATS BULL SHIT MAN
What charged the frieg and dishwasher???
you do know that collecting rain water in this state is a crime? Whats next a felony for wiping your ass wrong!
i wood like to more about your batterys and the way you have them wired up,please get back to me , and you have some great video,s, keep them comming
That is a sweeeeet set up, keeping a few mod cons but allowing for them with solar, very nice!
thanks bro for the info.peace and god bless.
nice set up. can i move in lol i'll pay for utilities haha
The sight in your bedroom at 3:47, beautiful! Awesome cabin you have hear. Do you have any monthly bills?
