Our entire solar power system is completely FINISHED! We have built a 13,000 watt solar power plant! Today we are firing the system up and turning everything on in our modern home to see how it handles the load on a completely cloudy day. We are also flashing back to a quick timelapse of how we got here. From moving to raw land with no running water or electric to now, having a solar system capable of running our entire home!

To see our entire home build in 20 minutes watch this video here:
We are a couple who are building our own home from the ground up in the mountains of West Virginia. After living near the city our entire lives we finally decided to sell it all, pack up our 3 kids and live in an RV on our 73 acres while building our own debt free, off-grid house and learning to live a more self-reliant life.
Our house build is documented entirely on our main channel "Wild Wonderful Off-Grid" and our family life vlogs can be found on our secondary channel "Wild Wonderful After Show"

This is now MY dream solar system. One question - since I watch too many hours of off-grid videos to go looking for it, maybe you covered this somewhere - but did you bring solar into the power house at 48V or higher to get the wire size down and the efficiency up? I'm sure you did series and parallel on the panels, but I never heard what total Voltage you totaled coming off the entire array into your supply wire to the the Mppt Controllers so far away. Again, I can't go through the videos again, but I'm guessing your Mppt's are built to take in 48V or higher, and that Growatt is a 48V Inverter. My question is, did you need a transformer to step the Voltage down from the Solar Array, or did you just have it already coming in at the accepted Voltage at the Mppt Controller? That's my question. (I'm aware that you can string together panels in series for Voltage as high as you want, so long as you have a transformer at the receiving end to step it down for whatever the Mppt is rated for, to say nothing of Wattage)

Have you looked at ground source heat pumps for your heating/cooling? I'm doing this at my house, it's expensive, but should last a long time and not consume fuel... and can use a heat buffer tank when it's sunny for use later on in the day

How much do you cost all your electrical installation in total, and this system is good for how long, not to mention the batteries which cost a fortune and their life is about 5 years.

I've seen so many people with just a few panels and they complain that they are constantly running their system down and it takes for ever to recharge. You need enough panels to power your day use AND charge the batteries.

Okay, enough about Josh. Love your channel in general. Very good editing, a lovely mixture of work scenes, and artistic creativity in your videos. Keep up the good work!!

It is good practice to space the purchase of cells in the battery bank. To prevent them all ageing out at the same time. Maybe first get good capacity, then start spacing purchases. Not to overtax the batteries.
Ivan Bojovic

So,did you make some solar panel protection ,in case of "SOLAR STORM"... That may cause dying cells inside panels, and i think maybe,you need some aluminum cover,just in case.... You are awsome, smart young couple,gorgeus kid's...

I would like to know where you got the panel brackets and post saddles. I found some 17' used panel brackets on eBay in Pennsylvania, but they won't ship them. I live in Indiana and the trip would cost more than the brackets. I can also only find black pipe in the 4" size. At my age it would probably outlast me. Very interesting video. Have a good day.

What a wonderful acheivement, the joy on your faces and in your voice says it all. Thank you for bringing us all along for the ride. Josh you have the manner of a great teacher and i have enjoyed learning from you. I changed my RV to solar and lithium 8 years ago also did my own build is 2 stages as funds dictated. I live full time for 7 months of the year and hav'nt used a generator in 7 years. Freedom is'nt cheap but it is liberating. CHEERS Steve h.

My husband makes Delicious Keto Oatmeal Pies if you all are interested in it, is really good and its big, clean ingredients if I could have post it here for you all to see. He makes a lot of Keto stuff. It would be nice if you all will give it a try @Wild Wonderful Off-Grid.

Some of the future panels will incorporate piezo electric properties so that when they are hit by raindrops or when the wind pushes on it they will produce electricity even at night. There have been night club dance floors whose lights were powered by dancers moving on a piezo electric floor.

Very cool indeed. Would love to know what the ballpark cost are for this setup. I’m in the UK and a friend had to pay £80,000 to get his grid connected to the grid. Which involved crossing a field and a road. So if the cost of this setup is less it would be a complete no brainer.

Hi, you guys, I’ve been watching the progress of your build since your first video. I’ve shared in the excitement, joy and pride during those years. I feel and see the love you all have for each other. I have celebrated 80 years on earth during this time and just want to thank you for letting me tag along. Your videos every week are like a warm hug and it’s heartwarming to know that you’re going to be a very important part of my life in the days and years to come. Many thanks , stay safe

Really nice work, Im thinking about buying 4 Tesla modules myself but I noticed that they can be charge up to 25.2 volt each do you use that last juice or are you satisfied with charging them towards 48 volt and take out less energy from them? If you have a solution to charge them towards 25V each I would like to know more details about this and I think it would be very interesting for others two. Here in Sweden these modules from crashed car places cost around 900 dollar each so it is really good cost/kW.
