  2. Hey There! Thanks a lot for this useful video. By the way, I notice lots of people keep on talking about Xobotano Home Energy (google it), but I’m not sure if it is good. Have you tried using this alternative home energy called Xobotano Home Energy? I’ve heard several extraordinary things about it.

  3. Is there some sort of backup in place in case you run out of power?

  4. buying solar panels costs a ton.. i did manage to construct our own solar panels though with help of mikediysolar,com check it out

  5. Hello there! Thanks for this helpful video. By the way, I notice many people keep on talking about Xobotano Home Energy (search on google), but I’m not sure if it is really good. Have you tried this alternative home energy known as Xobotano Home Energy? I have heard several great things about it.

  6. so that inverter is a converter also.. is that right? what gauge wire would I want to run from controller to battery? and from solar panels to controller? just setting up a system now… great video…thanks!!

  7. entra em contato com eles as lampadas


    podemos iluminar, uma


    comprar, material solar.

  8. ERIC,

    thanks great video. I would translate some of the watts info into English for us non technicals, ie 10 watts can run a TV and computer for two hours. Info like that.

    thanks again

  9. It still surprise me, how lot of people do not know about Xobotano Home Energy (do a search on google), even though many people save a large amount of money with this alternative energy. Thanks to my cooworker who told me about Xobotano Home Energy, I have cut my electric bill by 75% in less than Thirty days

  11. Actually I sell Westinghouse Solar products, I’m a consulting engineer. Give me a call before you order your kit. I might be able to get you a better price. Visit my ABOUTSOLARCELLS.COMXA.COM feel free to give me a call if you want to talk solar.

  12. what does it all cost to have in the home


    By john smith on Aug 18, 2013

  13. Guys, making your own home energy doesn’t need to be hard (I used to think it did). I’ll give you some advice right now. Look for a alternative home energy known as Xobotano Home Energy (do a search on google). Seriously, Xobotano Home Energy has save huge amounts of my money. I probably should not even be mentioning it because I don’t want a bunch of other folks out there running the same “game” but whatever, I am in a great mood today so I will share the wealth haha.

  14. Are Lithium batteries still not cost effective? Something like a battery system to a Prius or a Tesla vehicle?

  15. so you mean that if its winter time, Not much sun, I could use my gas generator and plug it up to the inverter, I could charge my batteries up….thus giving my power to the house???

  16. Just because you have 1200 watts on the roof doesnt mean your getting 1200 watts out of that array. Your 1st de-rating is the efficiency rating of the modules. What are those 14-15% eff maybe. 200 watt name tag modules will run about 200w x .85 = 170w dc on the average. They can go higher in higher irradiance but very unlikely to ever hit 200 watts ever as they are name tagged at 1000 watts per square meter of irradiance.

  17. I don’t know who your power company is but if it’s Con Ed count your blessings because they produce an exceptional service year round. Catastrophes must be seen in that regard. The damage sandy did would have taken out solar panels and wind mills, shorted batteries, and flooded whole systems (most of the brains of the operation are located in basements and garages. As such, the off the grid people are up the creek too. Generator and gas during catastrophes like sandy.

  18. cool

    By Armis Game on Aug 19, 2013

  19. Nice little system, I have a 4.1kW system I installed for $17,000 total. I am starting a series detailing the installation on my channel. Check it out if you have time.

    By Solar Power Videos on Aug 19, 2013

  20. Nice video. That is a very small system all around. Either they use less than 4 or 5 KW per day or they have a generator to back-fill the batteries….

    By MrEnergyCzar on Aug 19, 2013

  21. 850Ah battery! If you had LumenCache lighting you could power all the lights for two weeks without any new sunshine :-)

    Nice install. I like the MPPT and inverter. Can it be grid-tied so the excess PV can be pushed back to the grid in areas where net-metering is allowed?

    By LumenCache on Aug 19, 2013

  22. If your not using Seebeck thermoelectric generators in these off grid systems your crippling your ability to generate power. Look at ideas for small use like the power pot at theepicenter dot come, or larger units there and get an idea. You can make bricks that work any time you are using a heat source, stove, woodstove, stored hot water from evacuated solar tubes, whatever, a module the size of your palm makes 19 watts. Custom build with units from customthermoelectric dot come 300c rated.

  23. Nice video but I’m curious what did the whole system cost

  25. I have one more ? For u can u give me a idea on how much it would cost for a inverter with battery back up for my 4.5 kw system
