Off-Grid Electrical Solar/Battery

Is it possible to have all the conveniences of home while on the road? Is solar power enough for everything you could want on the road? How do you actually build an off-grid electrical system?

Having a fully off-grid electrical system means being self-sufficient and sustainable. For vanlife and tiny homes, it means using solar power and potentially other sources of power to charge a battery. If that sounds complicated, don’t worry.

Wiring such a system requires some research and planning, but is not terribly difficult. Once I had created my van plan, here’s how I wired everything up.
