A tidy little system for a tidy little cabin.

Located at the end of a very long and bumpy road, this cottage was running a generator full time for electricity. Thoroughly covered in trees, the site at first seemed ill suited for solar. But a crib built off a nearby point provided a base for a pole mounted solar array, capturing sunlight for most of the day.

Combine that array with a smart charge controller, a sealed battery bank, and simple 4kW inverter and now the generator is relegated to backup status, the fumes are gone, and the bird song is back.
