So, I always wanted to go off grid, but was afraid to take the plunge.
About a month ago, I bought a 300w solar
kit to run our mini fridge
I wasnít really sure how much battery
or inverter I would need, but did as much googling as possible and settled on an 800w inverter ( to handle the startup of the fridge) and 2 group 31 deep cycle batteries.
Got it all hooked up and got out with it twice now. It appears to work great, about enough battery
to go a full day and a half with no sun, and when itís sunny it fully charged in a few hrs. Overall, Iím quite pleased and now weíre not tied to our extension cord anymore.
