Going Off-Grid – Reduce Electricity Needs 1

The costs of off-grid systems have come down over the years. However, solar power is still no small investment. But there are significant savings to be had by reducing our electric energy footprint. So, to put first things first, we’ll take a look at ways we can reduce electricity needs.

How & Why to Wire Solar Panels in Parallel or in Series

My solar array is actually two arrays

When connecting multiple solar panels into an off-grid energy system, there are a few wiring options: parallel, series, or a hybrid (a combination of the two). In this blog, I’ll show you the basics of wiring solar panels in parallel and in series. Then, using my off-grid system as an example, we’ll see why we would use one or the other, or both. Let’s start off with a quick comparison of parallel and series circuits.
