Home Solar Hybrid battery backup with several generator options
Published on June 30, 2016

This is not your average backup system. It provides at least 4 ways to charge a battery bank. Solar, Grid, Diesel generator, multiple small propane generators.

The PV system cost ~ 30k and the generators around ~20k.

  1. Terrible video, but fine system. Your should consider getting a camera shooting class if you want to continue to have viewers

  2. Wise sales a joke, your good guy but they are a disaster! You need to be very careful!!

  3. What is the smallest converter I would need to run a full size fridge? Can one deep cycle 12 volt battery run it or 2 batteries would be better. I got one deep cycle battery the size of a large truck battery.

  4. very shaky video made me want to vomit. but very nice video if you have money

  5. Does anyone else realize if the grid goes down water will no longer be pumped to your home
    So unless your swimming pool is connected to your home water system sewage etc you may not survive long anyways

  6. What does a system like this cost with engineering, installation, solar array and generator

  7. At last someone who's done his homework. Well done……mate you could power your neighbours place too😄

    I love the neatness of this, good work! However in all these videos it boggles my mind that batteries are always getting shoved into enclosed wood containers (fire hazard…)

  9. Is the propane conversion sold as a kit?  Curious as to the cost of the large trailered gen set?

  10. I'm glad to see they make the propane kits for the inverter generators as well. It last at least twice as long running off clean propane. Less pollution too.

  11. sorry my plan is better get a petrol generator and run it off water

  12. Kindly, do you have a algorithm or technical articles for that system ( PV+2/3/4 generators)

  13. Not gonna be selling any electricity back in the state of Oklahoma. Thanks to our completely corrupt government and our completely corrupt governor Mary Fallin and her wonderful SUN TAX!!!  Any power produced over what your household consumes every month goes to the power company— for FREE. Unless you are one of the 350 people in the state who were already doing it before the law kicked in. I wonder how much it cost OG&E to buy off all those politicians?
    State and Federal government – The Largest Organized Crime Syndicate in the History of the WORLD!
    Two parties? Bullshit, that's a total SCAM, smoke and mirrors to fool the masses and keep us looking the other way. There's only ONE party and that's the CRIMINAL party.
    Sorry about the political rant, just pisses me off. Great setup in the video btw, wish I could afford it! :)

    make sure you fully unwind the cord from the steel wheel when in use.

    Where do you even find ethanol free gas? I haven't seen any gas stations that don't use ethanol. They have a nice system. You do great work.  Janice

  16. Tom C

    nice ringtone.

  17. I'll stick with my little Honda genny and go into conservation mode when the grid goes down. I can still store gas for six months with no problem. I have two 100 gallon gas tanks that will last me several months and I rotate the gas out to keep storage at a minimum.

  18. using a male to input power is illegal
    using the mains on the 25k  is ok for full power but to use the 50 amp in parallel  to run the same house gets you no more watts. it gets you nothing but a chance to kill your self get a qualified electrician  before you burn down your house   or kill some one

  19. GenConneX sells new Honda 2000 propane generators online with a one year warranty. Converting the Hondas to propane nullifies your warranty. The big problem with Ethanol is that it absorbs water 50 times more than the gas that was using MTBE so gasoline is no longer suitable for long term storage. Using a marine stabilizer and a water separator will help if you must store gasoline.   

  20. Forget that! $800 connection?!? LISTEN PEOPLE! If the power goes out,
    Step 1. kill the "Main" breaker to your meter.
    Step 2. Make a "double male" connection by splicing two extension cords.
    Step 3. Plug your generator into any household socket.
    You now have power to every room in your house and it didn't cost you $800! You're welcome!

    i want one lol.
    maybe one day.

  22. Engineer 775 I for one just wanted to say thanks for all the info, and the time you spend sharing it….and when tweaki I hope that it's people like you that rebuild humanity and I hope I'm here to help. Have a great day

  23. I see solar recharging power packs for your cell phone, why not just put them on the cell phones themselves?

  24. I would like to see these running off of hydrogen!

  25. Why not put wind mills in the middle of interstates and give free energy to the public???

  26. I think the real question is why would you ever need a 20KW generator? I work for a hydro company, and we put 10 houses on one 25KW transformer. houses rarely use more the 4KW max at any one time. even if you account for the batteries being charged: those Honda 2000W generators are really 1600W continuous rating equaling 3200W. That means your house needs a very max of 7.2Kw of power at any one time. (It is very likely that the batteries do not require 3200Ws to charge) And this is worst case scenario, on the day where you use the most power. The thing is you rarely usually don't have every electronic device on in your house at once.

  27. Great system for as long as the fuel supply lasts.  The solar part ought to run independent of fuel supply.  I assume this rig is for temporary power outages, like hurricanes, other than solar.

    In a major, long range power outage, the sound of that generator would draw lots of admirers.


  29. How long will the generators run using that propane tank? And how long will those generators run using ethanol? Thanks.

  30. Wow, I know electric, but this I've never seen!!!

  31. I thought it was small honda i would see 🙂   Very expensive setup!

  32. I would sure appreciate knowing how long these generators will run off of that little propane tank.

  33. Ethanol does not harm carburetors. Don't believe everything you hear about ethanol. Ethanol is the only common sense clean renewable fuel alternative to gasoline. Propane is NOT a renewable fuel. If I were you I would trade those LP carbs for a good ethanol still.

  34. WTF BBQ

    Damn rich people….

  35. I would love to learn about this. Where are some good sources to begin my solar education?

  36. Looking at those Honda generators ,,, You just gotta expect that sooner or later someone is going install one of those in a homebuilt electric car for a range extender. Maybe someone already has.

  37. Might want to ground those Honda's.

  38. alpcats

    All this and a Ron Paul bumper sticker, SWEET…

  39. Amazing – I'd love to be able to afford at least a couple of those Honda generators – I'd be happy with just 1 EU2000i

  40. And the inverter size in an off-grid system is based on load, not array size.

  41. Please work on your units… You're making 25 kilo-watt-hours, not kilo-watts.

  42. It's because he's not an engineer, that's why the negative comments. I get shit like that all the time engineer775, then when I show it off to someone that's interested, they're instantly impressed.

  43. You can only purchase on line VP SEF 6638 8 Small Engine "Fix-It" Fuel for All Strokes – 8 Quarts 109.99 You can buy in quart, gallon, 5 gallon pale, ect. but if you wanted a 55 gallon drum expect over 1500.00 each plus tax and shipping.
