“Off-Grid Solar as a Power Source”
Ben Sheron, KC2OTS
This presentation will be about off-grid solar power systems, meaning ones that can operate independent of the power grid.
Topics covered will include the different pieces of equipment such as photovoltaic panels and batteries, as well as what to consider when putting a system together.
This is geared to smaller systems, such as what one may use to power a ham shack as opposed to an entire house or cabin.
