[before_listing id=262 images= youtube=null] Lo_Tide is an off-the-grid house on the western edge of Eglin AFB in NW Florida, near Pensacola. We have 2.5 acres, but are located in a Florida Nature Conservation area, so we have waterfront property without neighbors! The power system is a 15kw diesel generator that runs off of vegetable oil, and a 1.8kw solar array with an 1100 Amp-Hour battery bank. The inverter is a Xantrex SW Plus 4024 with a GSM (generator start module). The system is completely automatic. Routine maintenance is simple.
