This is the 3rd video of a 3 video series about installing solar panels in our small off grid cabin in the woods. We give a top level overview of the system and give some other general pointers if you want to install your own medium size solar setup. The install isn’t quite finished but I’m tired of making videos about solar and want to move onto other topics. Thank you for watching!
