Is living off the grid realistic?
To find out I recently visited an open day of this “Off The Grid’ House in Little River, Victoria.
The 30 north facing panels can generate up to 5.5 kilowatt.
The power is stored in a 48v battery bank that can provide around 22 kilowatt hours per day.
The Battery Bank is a little bit bigger than a standard chest freezer. . . much smaller than I expected.
On the October day I visited the battery bank was already 98% charged at 10.00am, so already recovered from the overnight power use.
