    I'd like to get my HAM radio and license in 2023. I was in a EE program for 3 years and have a BS in MIS, and electronics is not completely foreign to me. I should be able to do this with some effort. I'd like it the lightest complete system that I can get with batteries and antenna that fits...

    Hi all! For the past 3.5 years, we've lived off-grid with solar panels & batteries, and propane generators for back-up. The last few months we've been surpassing what our system takes in, almost daily. This is for many reasons that I won't go into; we're faced with probably needing to expand...

  5. Off-Grid Alternative & Emergency Power/Energy
    I'm talking average solar home. Not multi million dollar house. You got forced air heat and A/C? If so does it work good cooling house down? What about clothes dryer, washer? Dish washer? Toaster? Microwave? What are you dissatisfied with when it comes to solar?

    I've been studying solar some, but not for big scale off the grid use. My interest is in powering small acid batteries to use in emergencies. I read the solar controller panel is very important. For one thing, at night, it prevents the batteries from feeding back into the solar panels and...
  7. Off-Grid Alternative & Emergency Power/Energy
    Are you happy with it? From what I can tell it is a big battery with built in inverter. Is there a benefit with the solar inverter as compared to a battery with a connected inverter?

    The scientists first show that the TiO2 nanowires by themselves can efficiently purify water in the presence of sunlight. But interweaving the nanowires with carbon nanotubes forms a composite material that adds an extra layer of decontamination by pasteurizing the water – killing off human...

    The largest solar events on record (Carrington Events) occurred in 1859 and 1921, long before the advent of modern technology. 1921 - 1859 = 62 years between events 2021 - 1921 = 100 years since last event PAPER: Solar Superstorms: Planning for an Internet Apocalypse

    Ok, I am investigating Solar. I have recently purchased a house with a patio, and plan on installing a small 12-18" outdoor fan and string lights around the perimeter. I want to use this "project" as a learning DIY experience. I kind of understand the concept of calculating usage etc, but here...

    Due to a few factors in my life I have basically prepped for lack of electricity. I feel that for other than short her events, having a generator and stores of fuel eats up a lot of the budget. In a SHTF scenario, unless you start making fuel, there is a finite amount of time you can continue to...

    We have a model S with a wall charger. Saving a lot on gas and maintenance. Waiting for solar to catch up and get panels and storage. Looking at the economic aspect but off grid is a definite bonus. Any engineers on her to suggest best set up?

    I made a quick dash into Walmart today for some camo paint (another story) and wanted to check out the motion lights. As I don't like working with wiring, I wanted something that wasn't hard wired. I came across this guy for $30...

    Have spent the last week going through a number of threads on power banks, power stations, portable solar panels etc. Greatly appreciate all of the feedback and expertise on this forum. I found it hard to go to sleep a few nights last week, as I kept wanting to read more. I have a Black &...

    OK, so I bought a little 20W solar panel off amazon to start tinkering and learning solar power. I have the panel itself, the little charge controller, and I plan to get a AA/AAA battery charger with a car adapter, and a 12V automotive socket. The instructions with this little panel were ... ah...

    In my last thread, Nomad, 2nd said I need to make it a little longer, so here I go. For April 2017 I decided to focus on rechargeable USB devices. Rather than going with a large 12 volt panel, to a charge controller, and then to a battery, I decided to go dabble in a solar panel that has USB...

    I decided I needed a small solar generator to power low current devices while camping and at the BOL during construction. I was only looking at recharging cell phones, cameras, and occasionally an inflatable air mattress, etc...I looked at possibly purchasing something like the the GZ Yeti 150...
