    Why are not the “clips” of the solar usage coming up? Nothing happens when I tap the arrows ..

    I am so interested in going solar, I just bought a house and would like to see if being a disabled vet if there are any government programs that help funding going solar.

    I loved this series. I have a Soar PV system on my home, but this gives me some great ideas to tweak it.

    Loved the off grid solar videos. They were very well done. Knowing zero about how the system works, I was very impressed with how simplified the author presented this complicated topic.

    Recomendation: if you ever develop an accompanying e-book, I’m your first buyer! I need to to read, highlight, make side notes, study charts, to truly study a complicated topic like this. I think I would attempt this DIY with an additional written format.

    Thank you for sharing your knowledge and not making it too overwhelming!

    At the beginning of the first video you mentioned cost and said you would get back to it later. I watched all 7 and either I missed it or you never got back to it. I understand that prices will vary for any number of reasons and total cost will depend on the configuration of the system but what did your system wth 4 panels ,four batteries and all the other components cost.
    $8,000 ,$12,000 just looking for a ball park number.
