Home Forums General Discussion Off Grid Appliances Re: Off Grid Appliances


I can’t forget our two Global Sun Ovens we bought for $170 each. They have been serving us well mainly in the summers, or any sunny day over 40*F outside. One of the few 12VDC appliances we use is a tire pump. In the Earthship, I have a ShurFlo pump 12VDC on a switch for use with the rainwater catchment tank going through a filter in the little vanity or the front garden drip irrigation system, which can be disconnected and a regular garden hose screwed on. I have a counter top 110VAC refrigerator/freezer that I occasionally use (on a timer outlet)when there is extra power and I need to cool or freeze something. However, it uses a substantial amount of power.
