If you truly want to live off the grid, but you don’t want to give up electricity, then you’ll need to spend some time learning about battery systems. It’s not as simple as plugging your home into a battery bank, turning on your lights and AC, and calling it a day. There’s a lot to it, so if you don’t know what you’re doing, you’re going to ruin your batteries and have to start all over.
Ideally, you would hire an expert to help you. But just because you hire an expert doesn’t mean you don’t need to know anything about off grid batteries. Rather, you still need to learn about your various options so you can have an intelligent conversation with whoever you hire and understand what he/she is telling you.
To that end, this article from Off Grid Survival goes over six types of batteries you can use to power your off grid home. Richard explains what your options are and lists the pros and cons of each one. If you want to move off grid but don’t see yourself ever giving up the comforts of electricity, this is a must read.
