Wow,

I guess I do have a lot to learn, because on grid seems pretty difficult to set up. I watched a few instructional videos on setting up off grid solar power, but the way it was presented didn’t make it look difficult at all; it looked like the homeowner simply connected a solar panel to some special batteries with some wires. The video said that the kit would have more details, though. It looked like something that could be accomplished over a weekend. Apparently, though, this is not the case.

Okay. I also found out my current rate of energy consumption might be a bit high, possibly around 76,000 whs per day. Let’s start small. How might I lower my daily energy consumption? `
