My new 4 panel 1200 watt off grid solar panel system for my guest house. The panels are mounted and I will start setting up the batteries  Thursday and the wiring should be completed by Friday or Saturday.  I Hope! It is looking good so far and  I think this will provide all the electric that I will need for this guest house. This will be a combination of new and used parts put together at a calculated cost so I can see what I can do for less expenses. Will keep a running cost so others can get an idea of cost if you can find the used parts.
