@dmpullin my friends and I built my solar , and am in the process of adding on. plus we will be buildng the wind turbine next. You can research this on line and find availiable places to buy everything you need plus videos to watch. Also solar power depends on what you intend to run on it's power as I add things to run I add onto my solar...as with the cabin little by little gets it done. Solar prices vary depending on where you live as well. For example I found out solar is cheaper in one state than it is is in another. Since I have a home in each state I buy the parts where they are cheaper and take them to the cabin. It saved me almost $1500 this way. So do search nearby states if you live close enough to. Same for the batteries, do get good batteries don't skimp here or it will cost you money in the long run. And of course have a back-up generator. If you find the generator too loud install a muffler on it...easy fix!

This is really fab news.. I support any invention that hits my money-grabbing electricity supplier where it hurts.
