I really like this YouTube channel. Watching this video of this air conditioner that’s cooling such a large space gives me confidence that I can use an air conditioner in my small Studio project that I am planning. Planning a backyard Studio that will be set up to use solar panels to power an air conditioner is my Holy Grail. I want to size my solar panels and my battery Bank to run an air conditioner and some lights.
Amorphous solar panel technology is the way to go
In this video you can see how Enphase technologies can allow a hybrid system for a homeowner. Solar panels can gather electricity during the day and it can be stored in batteries for use at night or for use the on cloudy days when there is not enough solar power. This system can also continue to use the grid when required.
I was watching this video and one of the companies that’s mentioned for battery walls is EnPhase Technology. And phase technology is a company that my brother-in-law introduced me to. My brother-in-law has a company Applied Building Science and Santa Rosa California. He installs Enphase Technologies solar panels
Ideally this is the project that I want to do in my backyard. Since hurricane Michael came along I have a lot of sunshine around my property because we lost about thirty five trees due to the storm. Now that I have a lot more knowledge about solar panels and batteries based on my research over the last few days I am confident that this type of solution can be done to power a workshop.
On the DYI culture around Tesla batteries. I am constantly amazed at how the tech industry really inspires people to hack Tesla technology. This video shows a company that is actively promoting a product for a specific niche in the Solar do-it-yourself Arena. I am considering using a Tesla battery in my solar solution but I also want to be able to charge it with Shore power, AC power.
This is a great video that has a nice diagram of how to install solar on an RV. One of the nice things that I like about this video is that the presenter goes into great detail to show how you can connect the shore power connections to the Arby’s panel and also to the batteries. The diagram is very clear so that you can get a complete understanding of how things work.
the Bay Area is Simply Amazing. All these parts are bought in San Jose.
