DIY Off Grid Solar: System Overview and Powering Up (Part 5) – Thumbnail


We are building an off-grid solar clean energy system from scratch. In this video, we cover the main power center, including the MagnaSine Inverter/Charger and Dual MidNite Solar Classic 150 Charge Controllers. We show you how our system is wired, backup systems, and take you through the power-up sequence. This is Part 5 of a series on building a DIY off grid solar energy system.

How We Found Our Off Grid Homestead Property:

Guildbrook Farm is an off grid, modern homestead located in the foothills of Appalachia. We take you along on our journey to become more self reliant by growing an organic garden, raising heritage breed chickens and pigs, improve our skills in canning and food preservation, building off the grid renewable energy systems, prepping for events such as natural disasters, and learning old time skills. Join us as we build an off-grid cabin and homestead from raw land while remaining debt-free. Follow our successes and failures as we learn to live a more simple, sustainable lifestyle.

Thanks for watching!
