Off the Deep End: Micro solar power

A few months ago, I got ahold of a little extra cash, so I decided to take advantage of the skylight in my apartment, and use it to power a small photovoltaic panel, and see what things I can replace.

The panel has arrived, along with a battery and an inverter so I can plug appliances into it.

Over the next few months, I’m going to document my experience using this system, what I use it for, what I CAN’T use it for, what the ups and downs are, and how I can use it as a platform from which to make other improvements.

I’ll use photos, review the individual pieces, and post exact prices of how much all this costs me so any readers can, if they want, figure out what’s worth copying, and what they could do better or cheaper.
