We are making a huge change to our off grid solar power system. Our current system is no longer going to work for us due to our upgraded system bringing in 3 times the amount of power we originally were. This means we need to take all of our solar components down and rebuild our entire system.

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 we 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"

    • *The Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021 signed December 27, 2020, provided a two-year extension of the Investment Tax Credit for solar. I thought of you 2 when I seen this, might help a little.

    • Definitely would love more details on the expansion. Is there a reason why you went with multiple charge controllers rather than replacing your current charge controller with one large one?

  • If you guy incorporated passive solar vacuum tubes you would save quite a bit of energy. Even a small system would save you hot water in the summer and tie is into any radiant or hydronic heat you might have.

I can only compare you to Gridlessness channel in Canada. Just a quick question for you seeing that you are a very knowledgeable electrician. Is there a particular reason why you chose Simpliphi batteries over Discover AES 7.2KWh?
