Building my Solar Wind Inverter Powered Garage

12 07 2008

Heck its been coming for some time. Lots of put offs and reason why not, but we hired a contractor to build our/MY garage.

Well it won’t be too big, looks like 28X16 with 10 Ft ceilings.

Costing about $15,000.00

i really want to go solar/ wind on this garage so I have started gathering my stuff.

Here’s what I got so far

Qty 2 80 Watt Solar Panels

Qty 1 100 Watt Solar Panel

Qty 1 400 Watt Air X wind turbine

Qty 1 Go Power 2000 Watt Sine Wave Inverter

Qty 1 25 Amp Digital Regulator

Qty 1 30 Amp Transfer Switch


I am going to make it off grid/ with Grid Backup. Usually I think it is kinda done the other way.

In other words I want to run on solar/wind/battery/inverter power until there is none left. Then I want to be able to switch back over to grid power.

This way I can benefit as much as possible from my alternative energy as possible without being unable to run devices.
