A series of bad storms left much of lower Michigan without power. We used this time to test our off grid solar power system to the max. We are striving to become full off the grid once more anyway so this is a great time to see how far we can push it.I am able to run the fridge, freezer, internet, DVR and security systems, security lighting, my laptop, desktop and 42 in LED TV monitor all on our current solar power system.I have 8 Trojan T105 golf cart batteries and 1,600 Watts of solar panels.

Description:

A series of bad storms left much of lower Michigan without power. We used this time to test our off grid solar power system to the max. We are striving to become full off the grid once more anyway so this is a great time to see how far we can push it.


I am able to run the fridge, freezer, internet, DVR and security systems, security lighting, my laptop, desktop and 42 in LED TV monitor all on our current solar power system.


I have 8 Trojan T105 golf cart batteries and 1,600 Watts of solar panels. My weak point in the system is that I only have a single 1,000 pure sine wave inverter.


After I finished this video I had a surge when both the fridge and freezer came on at the same time and blew the inverter out. I had to remove the loads and restart it.


I certainly need at least one more power inverter and some more batteries in order to sustain these loads 24/7.


But during sunny days I can see that this is no problem at all for my system to handle.


We will continue to strive to be fully off the grid all the time. We are closer than we have been in years.
