Solar Panels

Our Basic Off Grid Solar Setup

Let’s face it – living without electricity sucks! As a teen, I lived for five years in the mountains of Montana without any form of electricity beyond the batteries in my small AM/FM radio. After a couple of months without power, you get acclimated and realize that it’s totally doable… It still sucks, however, and much more so now that our lives and livelihoods are so intertwined with technology.

I knew that electricity was going to be crucial on the Hawaii homestead, so I invested heavily in our solar setup. Problem is that my knowledge of solar, and electrical in general, is elementary at best. Fortunately, my father is somewhat of a solar buff and I am an eager student, thirsty for knowledge.

I’m still fairly inept at electrical, but this small solar project has really taught me a lot! Thanks, Dad!
