Build and Maintain your own Off-Grid Power — Video Course


- We are offering a complete

course on PV solar installation –

NEW – reduced price $49.99 plus $3.50 p&p -

You are interested in making yourselves energy-independent. The bottle-neck is the know-how to actually accomplish it. That is why this website exists.

So we are pleased to offer this new course from solar veteran Bob Nagy. Check the Trailer:


For a long time we researched courses available on this subject.

There just wasn’t anything out there that was worth offering our community.

After viewing the video, I interviewed Bob and learned how this course came to be. Bob is the author of over 40 videos on high-tech subjects. He worked for NASA designing payloads, for ABC TV producing news and spent 20 years at the University of Texas- from which he is retired.

He understands the technical concepts from being an engineer, knows how to effectively teach those concepts from working at the University and knows how to make a great video from his experience with ABC news. It is this combination of skills that make the course so effective.  You can literally go from zero knowledge to a skill level where you can teach others how to do it.

Things like “how to operate a voltmeter” and “basic soldering techniques” are covered straight-off.

What is great is that it is done in a friendly and understandable manner. Bob obviously loves the subject and his personal energy and enthusiasm pulls you right along the learning track.

The videos are structured around Bob’s approach to teaching: to effectively learn, a person has to be exposed to the concept first verbally, and then shown how it is applied in the real-world physically. Thirdly, the concept has to be woven into the fabric of the entire subject by relating it to other concepts presented. Once you do this, you then review the ideas in a chapter-review.

Bob goes even further to re-enforce the ideas by making a special chapter which walks through the entire mental process of designing a new system from scratch. Next off there is a chapter that shows all the details of three real-life installations so you see how others have designed theirs.

It could not be more comprehensive and inclusive. That’s why we are offering this as our first solar training course. This course is used by several schools as a semester-long solar energy class. Enroll in one of those and you’ll be paying nearly a thousand dollars to take the course. Using the multi-DVD course, you can go at your own pace and review a chapter whenever you like until the concept is clear. Bob even answers questions you may have by email. We also encourage you to use the forum to ask other people questions and share experiences.

If you decide to purchase the course, you can do so by using the PayPal Buy-It-Now button below. The set will be shipped directly from Bob’ shipping center in Arkansas, USA. He ships immediately. You can use a regular credit-card on PayPal as well – even if you do not have a PayPal account.

With our arrangement, the price is over 75% off the list price.

Are you serious about going off-grid? Then take a huge step in becoming energy-independent

by learning the exact skills required to do so.

We’ve always said that “Knowledge is Power” -and in this case, it really is!

3-DVD 4 Hour Course is $49.99 USD plus $3.50 for shipping to continental US

Payment will be taken by Paypal account

This looks awesome, but just a little too much for me to afford at this time

2 Ogrid { 02.20.11 at 5:00 pm }

Awesome – I’ll take a look.

3 ElviraMoon { 02.22.11 at 1:23 pm }

For how long is this offer valid?

4 Bob Nagy { 02.23.11 at 11:01 pm }

Hey guys. I’m the author. We just hooked-up with Nick here at Off-Grid and are really excited about teaching everyone exactly how to install PV systems. You’ll be teaching others how to do it – once you watch the videos. I want to see thousands of new systems out there because of our course. If you can handle typical home hand-tools, you can do a professional and safe job installing any size PV power system. I’m here to help and will gladly answer any questions you have. Go-Solar! Bob Nagy

Re: Solar dvds? Bob does your dvds cover from a-z? What I mean is, where to get all the parts and how to build from the ground up? Thank you

7 Bob Nagy { 04.26.11 at 8:28 am }

Yes Troy, It covers everything. I teach you basic electronics, soldering, voltmeter operation, system calculations, wiring, framing, inverters, charge controllers, sun tracking and even tax deductions. It is totally inclusive. I also show you how to reduce your existing energy usage. You’ll be in the very top percetile of solar experts once you take the course. Thanks for asking!

We need to Grid free power & without batteries

11 Sanyo { 01.12.12 at 2:37 am }

Hello. Is there a chance the course will be available for international shipping? Thanks!

12 Wayne Sanders { 01.23.12 at 7:38 am }

Sounds like a great package deal. I’ve been watching videos on youtube for a few years now on over unity electromagnetic motors. Solar seems to be the no brainer way to go. To have electricity without batteries, you could purchase an expensive hydrogen generator at around $5,000.00. One guy on youtube uses the solar panels to run his hydrogen generator. He stores the hydrogen in six 500 gallon propane tanks. But he also has to have a fuel cell generator to burn the hydrogen gas to generate electricity for his home. Hydrogen gas burns at a very high temp, and has clean emissions. I’ve also noticed that the companies in Europe & Australia that have the electromagnetic generators, cannot attain patents from our American Government. We seem to be lab-rats stuck in a controled enviroment.

I want to go off grid will this program show me how to convert the entire house off grid? I see stuff about off grid and solor packages but they never teach how to hook up for home use other then small amounts of power. I want to power the entire house including hot water and refrigerators can this be done with out lose of everyday usage.

14 TecKnowFreak { 02.06.12 at 9:50 pm }

Jo if u want to learn how to take stuff off grid that no one shows like how to make yr tv computer dvd pvr cd player or any of that stuff its not hard to learn i am lookin at makin a websight to show ppl just how to do all that its easy with a trip to any place that sells sodering iron and a few other goods and a volt meter u can take most ac stuff and redo there mess and make them run directly on DC power i have done this stuff from driving semi not hard one day leason i can teach and u than can convert most stuff to use the power u make from solar or wind with out the big convertion loss to AC that most never talk about Freak

15 Ady { 05.26.12 at 6:44 pm }

do you ship to the UK ?

16 Michael Hubbard { 07.23.12 at 5:14 pm }

Looking to live off grid around the hill country near Austin, TX.

17 LWAtkinson { 09.05.12 at 11:30 am }

Thanks Bob,
I have purchased your pv training dvd and am looking forward to reviewing and learning from your comprehenisve course. I have been studying and tinkering/prepring with PV.Solar Farming for years but your course looks solid so i am excited to see what knowledge blanks i can fill in :)
Thanks again for putting this resource together.
I may have some questions later but will give you a updated comment/review after i receive and reveiw the dvd.
Best Regards-Namaste!

Shipping to Canada is no problem, right? Same rates as to continental US or a bit more?

19 Nick Rosen { 02.10.13 at 12:53 am }

International shipping rates went up, but we are holding the same prices by sending out in a sleeve instead of a plastic box. I think international is still an extra dollar

20 Coral { 02.15.13 at 9:38 pm }

We are on a back to grid system, have 18 panels & produce an average of 15kws per day. How can we change it to an off grid system?

21 norman { 09.12.13 at 4:41 am }

I love the idea of taking such a course

22 norman { 09.12.13 at 4:42 am }

there will be a future in this

23 Shayon { 09.16.13 at 2:20 pm }

i’m in the process of going off grid and acquiring my land. I know nothing about wiring PV power sources. Would this DVD be suitable for a novice>?

24 David { 12.02.13 at 6:17 pm }

I am like the others here. I’m soon to move to an off grid life. No knowledge of solar except of all the reading articles. I want these DVD’s but $50 is a lot for me now. Will this pricing be the same when I can save the money in say 6 months?

25 Tomas { 01.03.14 at 6:48 pm }

Do you ship to uk…?

26 Pinky Lee { 02.11.14 at 8:10 pm }

I have a cabin that I would like to convert into solar. I am currently a customer of SCE (Southern California Edison). Is there a way that I can flip a switch, or something, and use solar with batteries and then flip it back to use SCE? I want to do the opposite of most – have my public utilities as a back up. I don’t want to sell power back to the utility company and if there is a power outage I want to rely on my solar. I will be running a well pump, lights, tv, fridge and maybe an electronic heater. If I could run the well pump it would be like having free water too! :)

27 Ivan Valdez { 02.27.14 at 5:16 pm }

Hello I just bought the videos and I got an email with the payment information. However it does not say how long is it gonna take to be delivered to my address (NY) and from where is the package coming. I would appreciate more information.
Thank You.

28 Vic { 03.26.14 at 3:51 am }

I like videos, but also need it in book form. Not only for reading and note taking, but if the power goes out. Do you offer a book with the DVD? Thanks Vic

29 Sam Seaman { 07.12.14 at 1:45 pm }

Great info, my son and I want to explore this

30 Reynald Vincent { 12.11.14 at 2:01 am }

I was a bit confuse about learning solar energy until I have luckily purchased , green power videos version 3.0. I wish every body knew, as far as learning solar system training concern ” Green Power video’s Training” is the most efficient training, if serious about your future.

31 Reynald Vincent { 12.11.14 at 2:04 am }

Purchased the course you will not regret.
