Any recommended ebooks / pdfs? I plan on going with solar heat, solar power, using engine power only when I have too.
I have a question also. I have a full desktop computer that I can't live without. With a large enough battery bank and power inverter it shouldn't be a problem right? buy one of the 4000 5000 watt ones. my computer has a 650w PSU in it. but obviously I want to run more than that. an LED TV, speakers, led lights, 12v water pumps. I will try to run everything at 12v. If some of the electronics I buy use a household plug but then convert it down to dc power inside the component I plan to strip that part out and run it right off my grid. I don't plan on having it lit up like a disco, but I want to be able to use the computer & Stereo most of the time. and the rest will be rarely used.
I was also thinking incase of emergency, say I had no gas, no sunlight, and needed power bad. Dont they make pedal stationary bikes you can pedal to make power? Pedal allll day to charge my system if need be? I also plan to "borrow" power from convenience store / Walmart / basically anywhere I find an outlet. I know the alternator(s) on the engine will be plenty but I don't plan on wasting gas if I'm not driving it. too expensive for the gas and wear & tear on the engine.
I also plan on reupholstering the inside, rebuilding the guts with lighter, better material, better layout. I'd like it install acrylic skylights on any real-estate on the roof that wont have solar panels or solar heat and solar water on it. so not much space haha.
Right now it's a dream but i know I can do it. Any Advice?
