  1. People who wish to contribute to the environment positively or members of the family who would like to decrease their energy costs must make use of the generating power method “boma fetching unique” (Google it). Everyone’s looking for ways to go green and save a little green nowadays.

  2. Best explanation on YouTube. Looked through soooooo many videos and none of them actually answer or tell you the right things

  3. Very good video… Thank you for posting this, and sharing your knowledge. I have questions regarding the DC/AC conversion, power loss involved, and the difference in cost between AC & DC electronics (fridges, deep freezers, etc.). From what I understand, as a residential solar installer, there is a loss of power (as heat) from the conversion of DC to AC, and power inverters are not very long-lived (about 5 years average life). In considering a totally off-grid dispersed electrical generation system to power the expansion of my farm, I am leaning more towards adopting DC consumption, rather than conversion, to keep efficiency and compatibility as high as possible. What is the formula to determine that loss? This leads me to my next question: which electronics (outside of DC motors, cell phones, and laptops) are wired for DC energy, and which ones can be converted to run directly off of DC?

  4. Im going to be going off grid for my mobile business. I will be running a mobile auto repair business and i need a way to recharge my power tools and have light and power my laptops and printer. I have a generator for my 60 gallon air compressor

  5. thanks for the video. been buying a panel every other payday for about 6 months now. ive done the arithmetic, and found i have more than enough energy yo finally give the power company the finger!! with a smile. however, I lovr in Tucson, and summer days are 110 everyday. so electricity is a requirement in this part of the world. it feels good to have that AC blowing cold. it feels better to not be dependent on the grid. especially knowing that, when the city loses power. ill still have frozen meet and lights at night.
