Upgrading our off-grid solar power system has been a major undertaking but we are finally on the last leg of the project- installing 20 additional 425w solar panels. With more ice and snow on the way we are excited to have the panels installed and the fully upgraded system up and running in time to put the solar power system to the ultimate test... an icy winter storm with clouds for days!
We are a couple who are building our own home from the ground up in the mountains of West Virginia. After living near the city our entire lives we finally decided to sell it all, pack up our 3 kids and live in an RV on our 73 acres while building our own debt free, off-grid house and learning to live a more self-reliant life.
Our house build is documented entirely on our main channel "Wild Wonderful Off-Grid" and our family life vlogs can be found on our secondary channel "Wild Wonderful After Show"
If you are interested in how alternative energy could be useful for you, take a look at how Texas is under winter storm warning for the first time in history. Being off-grid with a system capable of handling extreme cold and a series of cloudy days allows us to be energy independent of any power company.

  • Josh and Erin watched you both putting up all 20 solar panels. Both did good. Josh I got scared for you when your coat got caught in the solar panels on very top. You need more extra hands to help you both out. Ask your family or friends to come out to help. Safety first. Erin is a hugh help and she does so much. This advise want give both Josh and Erin. Pls be safe. God Bless you both and lovely children.

    Ольга СавицкаяОльга Савицкая7 giorni fa
  • Could you start a hold down fastener at the top of a panel for easy access, slide the upper panel in place, then tighten. Could be a bit easier. Also love to watch the electrician work. Have learned many important (code related)electrical things. My house has the 120V outlets mounted with the ground terminal at the top. (I think it is upside down) But electrical code says there is no correct way. Just wonder what Josh prefers. BTW, foundation forms... how do you get concrete into the top of the form?
