A key part of living off-grid is generating your own power. While there are many options (including micro-hydro, geothermal, and wind turbine), solar tends to be the most popular — and for good reason. This video gives an interesting insight into the cost of a full solar power system.

From an economic as well as ecological standpoint, it may be wise to invest in a solar power system rather than rely on grid electricity — which has seen price hikes over the years. There’s also the peace of mind that comes from knowing you have a stable full-time power connection, immune from random / scheduled outages.

For these reasons, more and more off-grid aficionados and preppers are installing solar panels to facilitate self-reliance, as the cost of the systems continues to drop. This includes the good folk at Wild Wonderful Off-Grid, who highlight the total cost of their completely off-grid solar power system.

This is a pro build, not a rinky dink home setup – and quite an expensive setup in my view – with for example Lithium batteries and premium electronic components. There’s no corner cutting – which is important when you think that solar is a long term investment that requires long term reliability!

Here’s a breakdown of the components they needed and the price of each item/service. (We’ve linked to some similar examples seen on Amazon)

• 12 Hanwah Solar Panels – $2,743
• Combiner Box – $95
Schneider Electric Conext XW5448 AC Inverter (5500w) – $2,655
• Power Distribution Panel – $595
• Control Panel – $210
• W230 Battery Monitoring System – $360
Conext Combox Communication Device – $189
• Conext XW MPPT80 Charge Controller – $1,195
• Miscellaneous – $535
• Solar Stanchion Parts – $912 + $980 (120ft of 3” Steel Pipe for Stanchion)
• Shipping Cost – $570 (-$197 discount)
• 4 used Tesla Model S Batteries (via eBay) – 464Ah – $4,800

This totals to $15,640, which – astonishingly – would be just about the same amount it would have taken the power company to get them on the grid (and then a bill on top). So it’s a bargain compared to being on the grid.

Your situation is unique and several factors determine your final cost—including the size of your system, the state you live in, the brands you purchase, the characteristics of your home, and whether you go DIY-style or hire professionals.
