Couple Builds Off Grid Solar Array On The Cheap To Power Their House

Here’s an awesome video from well known off-grid solar DIYer DavidPoz, where he documents the building of a third solar array in his garden. His overall goal is to provide all of his home power needs from solar electricity.

Everything was done “on the cheap” using second-hand solar panels and salvaged materials. I like how he makes things “on the fly” to some extent, pulling parts from his scrap parts bin as required.

One thing that is critical with solar power design is securing the panels well. Solar panels are heavy and in a high wind, the array can act like a sail and be subjected to significant forces. If the array is not extremely well secured, it could take off and potentially cause catastrophic damage or even serious injury.

Hence the use of the ‘over-engineered” frame, which is built like a tank (it weighs over 1000 pounds!) However it isn’t anchored to the ground, so it is held down with heavy items so that it won’t take off in a high wind. It’s probably fine, but I would have opted for putting in some concrete footings with some Simpson anchor bolts as used in house foundations.

This array uses 14 x 365W panels (he got them used for $100 ea which is incredible) in order to give a total of 5,110W. It’s quite surprising just how many panels are required to power an entire house. It’s quite common for a home’s power requirements to be 20kW per day, depending on the size of the home, the number of people living there and their commitment to saving energy! This array might power such a home – however on cloudy days you would of course not be adding much juice into the system. Your array needs to be not only enough to provide an “average day’s use” but needs to supply more than this in order to cover for cloudy days.

Also of course in winter the amount of sunlight your array receives will be less, while your requirements may be more due to heating needs!
In general, a solar photovoltaic setup needs to be able to supply an abundance of power, but of course should not be so large that money is being wasted. It’s a balancing act and a good way to do it is to gradually add more panels and arrays until the system matches the home’s actual use.

David gives plenty of tips and instruction as he goes along.

This Crazy Off Grid Device Literally Makes Drinkable Water From Fresh Air:

According to NASA, the U.S. is expecting a 100-YEAR LONG MEGADROUGHT.


It's already begun. Ask the farmers in California. They know.

Every survivalist knows that water is of critical importance. You NEED an independent water source that you can count on!

As an interesting "survival rehearsal" - imagine that you turned the tap on right now and nothing came out. How long would you last?

But what if there was another water source literally hidden in plain sight. That's right, I'm talking about the atmosphere!

The amazing thing about getting water from the natural moisture in the air... is that it is ALWAYS available.

This gives you real water security!

😳 What Tinnitus Does To Your Brain Cells (And How To Stop It)

After 47 years of studies and countless brain scans done on more than 2,400 tinnitus patients, scientists at the MIT Institute found that in a shocking 96% of cases, tinnitus was actually shrinking their brain cells.

As it turns out, tinnitus and brain health are strongly linked.

Even more interesting: The reason why top army officials are not deaf after decades of hearing machine guns, bombs going off and helicopter noises…

Is because they are using something called "the wire method", a simple protocol inspired by a classified surgery on deaf people from the 1950s...

Lost Ways Of Survival Video

An amazing discovery in an abandoned house in Austin, Texas: A lost book of amazing survival knowledge, believed to have been long vanished to history, has been found in a dusty drawer in the house which belonged to a guy named Claude Davis.

Remember... back in those days, there was no electricity... no refrigerators... no law enforcement... and certainly no grocery store or supermarkets... Some of these exceptional skills are hundreds of years of old and they were learned the hard way by the early pioneers.

We've lost to history so much survival knowledge that we've become clueless compared to what our great grandfathers did or built on a daily basis to sustain their families.

Neighbors said that for the last couple of years Claude has tried to unearth and learn the forgotten ways of our great-grandparents and claimed to have found a secret of gargantuan proportions. A secret that he is about to reveal together with 3 old teachings that will change everything you think you know about preparedness:

Do not, I repeat do NOT do what these lunatics did! Can you spot the "fatal mistake" they made?

There's a general belief that if you bury a shipping container you can create an awesome root cellar / storm shelter / survival bunker.

But is a shipping container strong enough to handle the pressure?

I Can't Help Showing This Off:

If you haven't heard of Claude Davis yet do yourself a huge favor and watch this video.

One of the smartest guys I ever had the pleasure of meeting, Claude set-up a unique prepping system that changed his life forever.

I already tried it myself and let me tell... you I was completely blown away... His surprising tactics could make your life easier and give you the peace of mind you deserve.
