Cycling for a purpose: Power!





    A retired triathlon bike is how all of this started! I still have, and use, this today. It's piped into the system just like the vans and solar panels.
    You will get a very good idea of what it takes to power conventional appliances with this setup and a cheapie inverter - then - you'll throw all those electricity hogs away!
    This is truly renewable power!!!
    "Yeah, it's work, but when you're serious about Off-Gridding It becomes more of an adventure that can be downright fun!”
