#1 – Tiny Home / Mobile Home Off-Grid Solar Power System

Produces about 0.3-1.5 usable kilowatt-hours on a sunny day.

Minimum solar power for a small cabin, motor home, boat, or weekend retreat. A very conserving person can start with 60 – 125 watts of solar to power a few 12V lights and stereo. Closer to 250 watts of solar allows a lot more lighting, a 12V TV, 12V water pressure system and a small modified wave inverter for some power tools and non-sensitive electronics. Northern winters will require backup charging with a generator. One or two pairs of 6V deep cycle golf cart batteries make a 12V set.

Solar Panels
60-300 Watts – Using smaller 60W to 100W, 12V module(s)

Roof, Ground, or Pole Mount

None or a mid-range inverter like the Samlex 1200W 12V EVO-F SineWave Inverter

QO DC Breaker box or MidNite Inverter disconnect, solar and inverter fuses and connecting wires, as needed

Trimetric Battery Meter, optional but recommended

Up to 6 Trojan T-105s or 1-2 Eclipse Lithium 12V-100ah batteries and cables

Approximate cost of a system this size is $1,200 – $4,800 (not including generator).
