Method mixed with Madness

I've been following this guy for the last however long, "Justin Case".

When you first look at his system it looks a bit further over the top than most US preppers, there is method in his operation. It's his way of doing things, but it works. If you have the time, have a look at his new battery installation a year ago. He is now fully off-grid and surviving the terrible Australian winters. (a bit like British summers).

He's even got a 'Biff'-brand dog to please all customers!


1.140kW mono south-facing at 49*
EpEver 4210A at 24v
24V 400 Ah battery. (4x200Ah FLA)
EpEver STI1000-24-230 pure sine inverter
Of course it'll work. (It hasn't caught fire yet).
