How to Wire a Simple Off-grid Solar Power System
In this video we teach you how to hook up a basic 12V off-grid electrical system powered by solar. We use this system in our converted camper van and it has given us so much freedom traveling on the road being independent of "the grid." The general information in this video can be used for many other applications as well though not only if you live in a van or RV. We wanted to make going off-grid easy enough for anyone to do it themselves with no experience required!
