Solar Living Made Easy

   I started out with1,400 watts of solar panels but lost 2 of them in bad weather. now I have 950 watts in solar panels,3,500 watt inverter, system controler, 80 amp charge controler and 1,600 amp hours in batteries in a 24 volt system. I have a 4,000 watt genarator and a auto transformer to step the 240 volt down to 120 volt.

   I was able to do all this for around $10,000 and a little help.  I shopped around on the internet searching google, and eBay. Found the best prices and had it all delivered to my address. All that was left was putting it all together. That is ware I needed some help. 

   My next project is to build a solar panel. I have some solar cells, tabbing wire, plywood and an old glass sliding door to start with.

These are the batteries I had got from a person. They had been used as standby power. I got 1 extra one in case 1 went bad soon. They cost me $1,100 and are about 3,000 pounds with the cases. This type of battery has a 20 year waranty new from the factory. 

Check out the photos page. 

These batteries hold 1,600 amp hours at 24 volts gives me 38,400 watt hours of power stored for use at night or on cloudy days. We use 4,000 watts per day on average.

Putting together a solar tracker can be easy with the right things. I scrounged the things 4X4s, 2X6s, 2X4s, steal pipe, an old satillite part. I got a sun tracking unit from a friend so the panels face the sun all day and turn back to the east at night for the morning sunlight.

This package is on converting your home to either wind or solar power or both. Most importantly it focuses on how to accomplish this for very little cost. All of the parts that Green Power Easy recommends will be available locally and most of the pieces we needed came from our hardware store.

You will be able to build solar panels, or build wind turbines to supplement your homes energy requirements, I may suggest this one.

With power 4 home, everything is laid out in written format, but the absence of the videos did make it more difficult to learn what we were supposed to do.

This system also provides a very simple design, a MUST for any first-time installer. It also comes with an 8-week money back guarantee.

This guide is presented in an easy-to-follow manner. It includes bonuses - how to make money installing these systems for others and how to get the IRS to pay for the conversion of your car to water.
