How to hook up Solar Panels (with battery bank) – simple 'detailed' instructions – DIY solar system

shows how to hook up solar panels (with a battery bank). simple instructions. home solar power station. very easy to put together. all you need is 1 or more batteries, an inverter, charge controller and a solar panel or panels. the following is for a 12 volt system. use one ‘deep cycle’ battery for every 2 to 6 amps your panels generate. (batteries like to be charged at this rate). a 12 volt 1 amp panel generates about 15 watts. you can use any solar panels. if you can’t get the smaller panels then buy one larger one. (Kyocera sells an inexpensive 7-8 amp solar panel (135 watter)). that would go perfect with 2 deep cycle batteries. the six panels in the video are from harbor freight tools. i bought 2 three panel sets. they sell the panels in sets of three or individually. coleman sells similar panels. the batteries are from walmart. they are ‘deep cycle’ batteries. the charge controller is from fry’s electronics. the inverter is from harbor freight tools. this system will provide all the ‘free’ power you will need to run tons of things around your house. i’ve posted 6 videos showing all sorts of things running on this system (computers, tvs, stereos, lights, power tools, appliances, and more). all can be found on my youtube channel homepage. great little system to start with. try ‘powering up’ one room in your house. you now have a solar assisted house. as one example; this could easily run a light, laptop computer, fan and small tv for several hours every day. also great in an emergency, power outage, remote and rural off-grid living.

Will the batteries not run out in this way? Isn't there a need for a component after the batteries so they can't run out of power?

Can the inverter remained hooked to the battery along with the cables coming from the charge controller? Thanks.

Hello just a quick few questions.
What battarys do you use?
Is there a special connector I need for adding more battery?
And what was the thing at the end called to check the voltage?
Thank you

wow thanks for the explanation

How long to charge batteries from dead to full using the 90watt panels ?
How long do they last when fully charged ?
Ex. Max watts/hr for how many hrs ?
I’d like to set up something like that in city, hidden from site on my second floor balcony during this Covid-19 emergency !?!

Hi Dale here I like the video, how many panel would I need to run a refrigerator and freezer, and battles. Thanks

Very simple yet very effective. Very nice, I've got two harbor freight solar kits myself. In my video I've got just two 35 amp batteries and inverter. Thanks for the video.

This was great, thanks, been searching for "connecting solar panels to house wiring" for a while now, and I think this has helped. Have you heard people talk about – Piyaarter Uncomplex Preeminence – (do a google search )?

It is a good one of a kind product for discovering how to generate energy-on-demand without the normal expense. Ive heard some amazing things about it and my m8 got cool success with it.

Thanks Mark Wahlberg for the explanation!

André Reiter says:

Great video! For everything you have to make this work, what would it cost?

Kayla Garcia says:
