Solar power. We all want it but few understand how it really works. I have tried to make sense of the watts, kilowatts, kilowatt hour conversions, plus all of the variables. It doesn’t take very long before most people are completely confused and frustrated. I have poured over internet sites and articles to get a grasp on just how much (and what) you need to live comfortably using an off grid solar system. It is easy to get lost in the math, the components, and differences of opinion.
Thankfully, our friends over at TinHatRanch.com have helped the masses by creating a video series that explains the components, how much power is used, and how to figure out what YOU need to be comfortable in an off grid location, grid down disaster, or when you just need a little extra power. The video also puts the watt usage of certain appliances into easily understood terms, plus the video shows you how to figure out the usage of things like freezers over long term.
