Neat and clean. Nice set up. I would love to go off the grid so to speak. Pretty cool to how the two systems transfer based on supply level...
I kinda misspoke on heat. While I do still have the propane connected space heaters, heating and air conditioning actually come from three of those Mitsubishi units where the head is mounted inside and fan units are mounted outside. One on each floor of the cabin, and one for finished space inside the barn
Musta cost a bit to set it up that way but what a feeling of independence and knowing your ass is covered pretty much no matter what....I'm so over being governed, restricted, ordinance, regulated, permit bound, over taxed and basically being told what I can and cannot do....I truly envy that set up....
Yeah, it’s pretty cool. Also, if you look on the tops of the batteries, you can see the black tubing I used to make a watering system with hooked to a little bilge pump that pumps water from a tank that fills with water from a solar sill that fills with rain runoff from the roof of the barn. You can see the yellow regular battery caps in the bag hanging on the wall
With the 30% tax CREDIT, the entire solar setup, Mitsubishi units, and 22kw generator came out almost exactly a wash with what the cost of running power lines in would have been because I would’ve had to buy a small easement along with running the line and poles in 1.9 miles from the road. The other downside of running in the power would be granting them acces regularly to my property for meter and if a hurricane/storm takes down lines, I’d be priority #1...... billion for restoring. I love it out there, just got home from hunting. PS I’m really glad I found this in AL and not FL. Woulda been a MASSIVE pain in the ass to do what I’ve done in FL due to permitting and regulation... woulda NEVER been able to dig my pond bigger in FL.
That just it, I'm sick of people telling me what I can and can't do with my property. I'll be visiting the City tomorrow to tell them they are being sued for damages to my cottage from a tree they wouldn't let me remove 5 years back. Broke the foundation, crushed the main drain and water supply line....I think I know what is best for my property..... Sounds like you have found the ultimate solution. Screw city life...
How do like this generator? Had any issues with it? I'm replacing my old 20yo generator in a few weeks (tax free week in FL) and I'm looking at getting this unit. Your feedback is appreciated.
I actually didnt buy it so I have no feedback to give. But if I were to get one, that's still the one I would get.
So any particular brands/models of portable 3k-5k generators I should consider?
I thought using regular water was bad for the batteries. From Googley... The most common type of water used in batteries is distilled water. Other types are deionized water and water from reverse osmosis. Ordinary tap water should not be used because it may contain an excessive amount of impurities that will degrade battery performance.
Correct, but you missed where I said it goes through a solar still! It’s slow, but makes enough over time.
