What You Need to Know

Other Benefits:

Security during area power outages

Maintenance Requirements:

None

My Motivation:

Always a dream to live off-grid to benefit the environment & model for others the reality that a family of 6 can live with modern appliances & lifestyle without use of fossil fuels for ongoing operations. (We consider woodlot management renewable.)

Advice:

While technologies are amazing, basic frontier resilience is needed to tackle challenges. This requires a support system of friends, suppliers who can troubleshoot when systems need improving.

Additional Notes:

In the US north-east, be prepared to shovel off panels after snowfalls so electricity can be generated when sun is out!
