We all rely so much on the grid, from things as simple as charging our cell phones, to running our water heaters and cooking our food! Let’s think for a second, what have you got in place right this minute if the power went out you could function to some degree?
I have a small solar array but nothing that could charge more than something less than 150 watts. I need to up my game! I have been looking into a 1000 watt system that could easily power all my household items if there ever was a power cut.
I would most likely use as much solar power as I could thinking about it and save a lot of money on my electricity bills every month. I still think you can claim a tax credit if you install solar too. That is something that would make the transition to solar a lot easier.
