This series is for the person who wants to move off-grid in a small living space such as a cabin, tiny home, RV, Skoolie, camper or truck camper, etc. and, as a novice without a lot of money, wants to produce their own electricity through a small and simple solar system that is easy to use and maintain.
I’m an off-grid homesteader and There are always things I want to learn or things I want to get better at but there never seems to be enough time to get around to those things. Well now most of us are stuck in a situation where we have more time than we’ve had in a long time.
Solar panels convert sunlight into DC(Direct Current) electricity. This electricity is then stored in a battery or bank of batteries. Because most electronic devices and appliances run on AC(Alternating Current) electricity they can’t be powered by the battery bank directly. The DC electricity must be converted into AC electricity.
