Off-Grid Energy Course

Post by Gregski »

look, here's the deal, we often want something for free, but you know the saying you get what you pay for, so why not support someone who has put in the time and effort to learn us something, this is not my course, it is just something I came across and because it is offered at 80% OFF why not give it a shot and support this guy, or you can wait for me to watch it and then suffer through my horrible videos as I regurgitate this stuff lol

Great course! Very thorough, he covers a lot of detail needed. You end up with a broad overview. To install your own system you will need more info though, either his consultation or complete a few more of his courses. I would recommend both. Why not? It is worth it to not make any mistakes in such a resource for your home.

If I had seen this a couple years ago I could have completely managed the installation of my 8.9Kw solar array and Enphase inverters. The installer I chose made an inverter sizing error so the 8.9Kw array is bottlenecked by a 6.4Kw inverter capability. On sunny days there are 3 to 5 hours of wasted energy.
