Off Grid Solar Battery! - So easy its *Almost* Cheating...

Today we are making the SUN work for US. Thanks to #EcoFlow for sponsoring this video! Visit to check out the EcoFlow DELTA Pro and EcoFlow DELTA Max. Electricity is important. And having emergency backup power is more important-er. We are installing an Off-Grid solar array with a battery backup in my barn.

Simple Solar Power System for an off grid Cabin

Here is a VERY simple solar power set-up for your remote off grid cabin. By using a single car battery, a single 100 watt solar panel and an inexpensive charge controller, we can be ready to run a computer, or a few lights, or charge our hand held devices. And in the summer at a small cabin....tats about all you'll need. Dave Whipple

Parallel 3 Inverters Together, off grid 48V 120/240, 1-Month Update

Last month I paralleled 3 inverters together to increase their output. Now it has been one month of running my home and garage on them and it's time for an update. Bottom line, they have been working excellent.

The inverter is from Growatt. It's the SPF 5000ES model. It can output a continuous 5000 watts (5kW) of AC power at 230 or 240 volts (50 or 60 hertz). I'm using an auto-transformer from Solar Edge to provide a neutral so that I can have 120/240V split-phase. Total output: 15kW Each inverter has a built-in solar MPPT charge controller.

Building a Solar Generator, Powerwall, System for off grid Tiny House on Wheels

This is a complete build of a solar system that will power my friends Tiny House on Wheels. The video shows all the layout, connections, and testing. So make sure to watch to the end if you want to see it fired up and working.

My friend's nick-name is Poet. Poet built his Tiny House on a trailer to it can be towed, THOW. He built it and bought a piece of land completely off grid. There is no grid power available. There is a well on the property that requires 240V AC to power it. Right now, Poet, uses a Honda Generator model EU7000 which can output 120V and 240V split-phase like we use. The well pump is submersible, inside the well. The cord comes out of the well and has a 30 amp twist-lock plug on the end. This is what he plugs into the generator to run his well. This means that in order to have water inside his tiny house, Poet must fire up his generator. This is costly, noisy, and inconvenient.

I'm building Poet a solar power system to handle his needs for the well pump, and a future air conditioner. Below are some of the parts I'm using:

Inverter: I'm using the Growatt SPF 5000 ES model. This inverter has a built-in solar MPPT charge controller (up to 6,000 watts of solar). It can output up to 5000 watts of AC power at 240V 60 hertz. This inverter can also charge the batteries from an AC source, such as his generator. I bought the inverter from Signature Solar. Use coupon code DAVIDPOZ for a discount, and it helps the channel by tracking the affiliate.

Auto-Transformer: This device can split the 240VAC output into two legs of 120V each. In North America many household appliances run on 120V. This was also bought from Signature Solar. Use coupon code DAVIDPOZ for a discount, and it helps the channel by tracking the affiliate.

Off Grid Solar panels for Beginners Off Grid Solar System from Unbound Solar. DIY Solar Panel Wiring

A complete explanation of our unbound solar system kit. This is a video for DIY solar panel installation for beginners. This is an off grid solar system from unbound solar. I included the solar panel wiring for our Magna Sine Inverter and Discover 48 v battery. We have 12 solar panels that we wired and installed as beginners with no experience. I hope this video helped. I was looking for something like this before our install. If you have any questions leave them in the comments below. If you have any recommendations or feedback please let me know! Can't wait to share the progress. Follow me on Instagram for daily updates! @alliejcurtin

#GoingOffGrid is hard work, but it will be so worth it! We could not do this without the help of our family and friends! Since May we have been renovating this abandoned cabin and turning it into our full-time home! We are moving into our #oneroomcabin ! We still have a lot of renovations to do but it is almost complete! #cabinrenovation #movingoffgrid #offgridhomes #livingoffgrid #cabintour #cabinhomes #offgridsolar #goingoffgrid #cabinmakeover #solarpanels #solarinstallation

Growing up together as high school sweethearts, we got married at 19 in August of 2016. We have always dreamed of a life of adventure! We started traveling the US any free weekend we had, finding free campgrounds wherever we could, and even converting our truckbed into a home for three weeks to make the trip across the country. After 4 years of college and 2 corporate jobs, we decided this typical lifestyle is not for us. Because of RONA, our jobs let us work remotely full time and so we decided to take the leap. We started this #goingoffgridvlog to share our experiences with friends and family, but hope to share helpful tips along the way! We have no plans to slow down anytime soon, and we are incredibly thankful to be able to jump into this lifestyle. :)

Powers Entire Tiny House! Ecoflow Delta 1300 Power Station

Impressively, the compact & powerful Ecoflow Delta 1300 power station can run our entire tiny house! We first tested it when our host's power went out, resulting in a real-world backup power situation.⚡1800 Watts, 3300W Surge (Pure Sine Wave)- full specs: ⚡In our product review, we share various ways to use & recharge the Delta 1300 #powerstation with key comparisons to other mobile power stations / solar generators.

We tested the Delta's solar power recharging capability by connecting it to our 2, 400-watt solar panels--installed on our tiny home roof. Later on a camping trip, we tested it with the fold-out EcoFlow 110W Solar Panel.

⚡⚡ Top Delta 1300 Features:
-Fully recharge within 1hr with AC power - 10x faster than most portable power stations
-Fully recharge with solar panels in about 4 hrs (dependent on direct sunlight and panel capacity), AND with a 12/24V carport in 10-12 hrs - again faster than other available options
-Comes with universal solar input (MC4 to XT60 Connector) - unlike other mobile power stations
-Large inverter load enables it to power most home appliances AND heavy-duty tools under 1800W (3300W Surge, Pure Sine Wave) with 1260Wh capacity
-Can charge an electric car! Comes with the necessary cable
-Small-space friendly size! 15.7 x 8.3 x 10.6 in (40 x 21 x 27 cm)

☀️???? In the future, we might invest in a 2nd Ecoflow Delta 1300. Both could easily fit under our couch and could be connected to our 400-watt solar panels to ensure continuous #offgridpower for our tiny house. Mini-homestead goals! ☀️⚡

????EcoFlow Delta, $1,399.99:
????Delta with Folding 110-watt Solar Panel, $1,748.00:

☀️Top EcoFlow 110W Portable Solar Panel Station Features:
-Chainable feature allows you to connect 4 of the EcoFlow 110W solar panels together
-Comes with a handled carry case that has a built-in, adjustable stand
-Made of waterproof materials

TOTAL COST Of Our 13kw SOLAR POWER SYSTEM | Powering A Modern Home With Solar

Today we are going over the full cost break down of our solar power system and the time it will take to recoup our investment costs. If you are interested in the build of our system you can find numerous videos documenting the entire solar power system build in this playlist:


Feel free to join us live at this Friday (March 5th) at 6pm EST to ask us any questions you may have.

We are a couple who are building our own home from the ground up in the mountains of West Virginia. After living near the city our entire lives we finally decided to sell it all, pack up our 3 kids and live in an RV on our 73 acres while building our own debt free, off-grid house and learning to live a more self-reliant life.
Our house build is documented entirely on our main channel Wild Wonderful Off-Grid and our family life vlogs can be found on our secondary channel Wild Wonderful After Show

Couple wires a huge, High Voltage, Solar PV Array, 12.6kW

We are completing the wiring on all our backyard solar arrays. Together, they total 12.6kw of solar PV. We are wiring these in large series strings to make high voltage DC. This will feed into our garage through an underground conduit. The solar MPPT charge controllers are built into the Growatt inverters, model SPF 5000 ES. Each 5kw inverter can accept up to 6000 watts of solar PV input, and up to 450 volts DC. Using high voltage PV helps lower the cost of wires and combiner boxes.
