How to make a Modern Off-Grid Homestead with Solar Energy

Over the course of this year we’ve been hinting at the value of going off the grid with solar, today we are going to finally  give a rundown on the watts and why’s to make the case for cutting ties with your energy provider and claiming your energy independence!

Let’s start with why.

Why are people going off the grid with Solar and Batteries?

Bottom line, Self Sufficiency and Resilience

By going solar off the grid, you claim control of your electricity and your money by hedging against future electric rate hikes. The best news is that with Texas Direct Solar financing backing your switch to off grid solar you won’t have to worry about upfront costs. We use Aurora imaging software to map out the best design for your system making sure you get the most bang for your buck.

How do I get off the grid?

To get off the grid your power influx needs to be large enough to take care of your daily wattage needs, (which can be calculated by multiplying the wattage of all your appliances by their hours of use) in other words, your system will have to be large enough to capture enough energy to keep you going through the day and the night. Next, you’ll need to have a battery bank which will store the excess solar power generated during the day to use during lower light periods. Here’s a little diagram of how it all works.
