You haven't lived until you've lived off grid! My husband and I are in our 50's and have been living off grid for the last 2.5 years. It's a struggle at times, especially having to rely on generators for everything, but the 10 acres in the California mountains make it all worth it! Hopefully one day we will finish our home build, but until then we make the most of every day!

Just setting up the solar system alone, is a massive achievement. You are a very clever chap and should be really proud of how far you’ve come. You’ve taught yourself so much, people go to uni for years so they can achieve what you’ve done single handedly. You’ve both worked incredibly hard and deserve so much happiness with your young family in your new home. I wish you all the very best future. xxx

Yes they are impressive and I am hoping to follow in their footsteps and go off grid for our family. Our power grid here is aging and political so going off grid will free you from the politics of the fossil fuel industry.

Since you are off Grid totally and now rely on the sun, have you ever thought of building a wind mill to produce power at night or during a rain storm where the wind picks up?

My mom grew up on a farm in Michigan with windmill powers, especially for their plumbing and running water. That's a great idea

We get a lot of wind here in Kansas but from what I've learned, the residential windmills really don't produce enough and are very loud. Until they can produce more power quieter I wouldn't suggest it.

They live in Texas, USA, which has almost 300 days of collectable sun each year. There is no need for "an alternative to the alternative." Compare that with London (100 days) which would benefit from wind or tidal energy.

Well they have lots of trees around. A Wind mill must be way above the tree line to have it's full potential. I built some and even Trees 100m away can substantially impact the air stream. Such a high pole require a big heavy base and a really good pole. Also strain strings are needed to up high to protect the pole from flexing to much in the wind and survive high winds. I don't know if you really want to have something like this on a such beautiful property like they have. Adding a 3rd Array and more battery is the way to go, and also if they go EV then hopefully they will buy a car which allows bidirectional usage so that the car can also be used as a power source for the house.

Solar systems are fairly simple. It's like anything else I have learned. Break it into its individual systems and components. There are plenty of videos online, but most of what you do will be dictated by the components you buy. Will Prowse has some good videos, and will make you a little more solar savvy. I myself am fully off grid in the desert in Southern Utah.

A suggestion: Since your solar system is so easily adjustable, you might consider quickly configuring it in the flattest profile when a high-wind storm is forecast. It will reduce the wind loads on the panels, minimizing the likelihood of damage.

I had a couple of thoughts, if you don't mind hearing them. I would drive grounding rods and mount lightning rods in the area. I think that old power pole could be useful to you all, as you've mounted your cellular signal booster antenna before, and if that street light still works, you could have that light up the area at night, if you don't already. And, now that you've got all that great work done, maybe the next steps will be to increase your battery bank's capacity and add a wind turbine for cloudy but windy days. Also, you could plant bushes and trees next to the solar panels to block the view of them from your home. At any rate, I love your videos and want to encourage you all to keep up the good work.

To help smooth the movement of the cranking, rub a bar of soap along the brace when it is extended. When you crank it down the soap will go inside and smooth things. This is great for old-style drawers that use a wooden channel.

Awesome Solar mounts! Reminds me of climbing up a mountain every few months to adjust the solar panels for our businesses off-grid tower sites! I like this crank method much better. We had to remove bolts and reposition while one person held up the panel with brute strength lol. It was a small workout in itself! Good times though.☺️😁 Now we aspire to have a system much like this for our soon-to-be-house! So inspiring! Great job! Love it!

Maybe you already done this, but grounding the frame of the solar array would be a good idea. It would help to bleed off any static charge, as well as provide a path for any transient strikes that might occur.

Hey Spencer and McKenzie! I’m a huge fan of your channel! I usually watch your next video as soon as it is released! Just had a quick idea that Spencer might appreciate, and it’s fairly cheap to make too… I’m not entirely sure if this would work, but I was thinking that instead of him having to turn each solar panel handle one at a time, he could probably buy a long metal pole and drill five holes in it, and then insert the five handles into the five holes on the pole, this way he can just crank all five panels at once using the pole, to make life easier :) It’s just an idea! Keep up the great work! I love your videos!

Just a suggestion when you trim out your windows in the kitchen or bathroom make sure the window sill is wide. In a kitchen you can utilize that space for small herb pots for cooking. In a bathroom a natural decor potted succulent in the window. This is what my husband did when we framed out our windows. It brings the outdoors inwards and gives the rooms colour. The house looks amazing you're almost there. 👍 Cheers🇨🇦

Well done with the moveable array!!! The focus on being off-grid is very commendable. You are creating a project that needs to be replicated in rural settings. Unfortunately this situation is unattainable for the masses. At least you are dealing with your impact on Earth. It's great you don't default to wood-burning for your heating needs (which is relatively easy in your climate - any northern project has a much more difficult challenge creating an all-electric project).

I assume that, when your batteries are full, the energy being created by the solar panels is wasted. Before having that old hydro pole removed, I would consider exploring what it would take to sell your excess power to the hydro company. It might be worth a small investment in getting reconnected to the mains.

@John Needham Oh don't get ME started on PLFL!! He is the MOST obnoxious POS I've ever experienced! He's so arrogant and condescending towards people that was giving him friendly and respectful advice on matters he didn't knew crap about, and he was like: "No you do not know anything, I know everything!" while filming himself right up his nostrils, looking down on people like they were something the cat dragged in! - but I do not think they're uploading videos anymore, or am I wrong?

@Edward WeedenI was just about to ask the same question. It's never occurred to me that WWOG was anything but on the level. Though don't get me started on Pure Living for Life!

@W S Tavis Your evidence, please! Are you confusing WWOG with Pure Living for Life?

Loving this content! Could we hire you guys when your done with yours? At this point you will write your own tickets in this field. So amazing watching this journey. P.s. Your house has been running on sunshine, I suspect way before you built your solar panels 😀⭐🌝
