Do you keep asking yourself “How cheaply can I build a solar power system?” The answer, of course depends on what you want to run.
If you want to run a normal house in town harnessing solar power, you’re in for a investment of tens of thousands of dollars, thanks to a house that’s almost certainly full of power-wasting, inefficient lights and appliances.
But if you could start from scratch, well, that’s a different story!
This guide will teach you how to create a small cabin only harnessing solar power. Ask yourself the following:
What items are essential?
Should my lights be high-efficiency?
Do I need a TV or VCR?
Should I get a stereo?
What future needs might I require?
What non-electric appliances could I use with solar panels?
What system components will my cabin require?
Will I need a battery bank?
What type of solar panels should I consider?
Do I need a solar panel mount?
Should I have a charge controller?
Will I need an inverter?
Should I meter my system?
It would be impossible to power a home in town with a system of this size, but this design goes to show that if you are conservative harnessing solar power, are realistic with your expectations and thrifty with your equipment purchases, you can power a home for under $1,000!
