Building an off grid Solar Powered (EV charging) Campground

So a couple days off, and back to tidying things up. Being very new to all of this. One can't just have a bunch of wires coming out of a shed, and then into the ground. Boxes, conduit. Unique tools.




We still have a few more panels to bring up.

So this was the goal. Just stats for one of the cars for the last month. We also added the final 10 panels in groups of 5. So next month should be even better. We would leave a car to charge during the day, then swap for the next day. Enabled us to charge and explore NW Montana without range anxiety.

Dogs were plenty comfortable in air conditioning of the Airstream or 6m Bell tent. Not my definition of camping in the summer, but the temps were much different in this area when I grew up.

So I have been handed the keys so to speak. @nwdiver is off for a couple weeks. So I will see how I do. So far. Pulling down exactly what we wanted to at peak.

More than likely will add a second Solar Ark 12k, and add the other batteries when we build a small home. Nice thing is. I can still keep the campground.

Till then. Thanks all for following, and the support. Not always easy, and solving problems is the part of every job. Chris Dizon @nwdiver was the master mind behind this crazy idea I had. Am very grateful for his help. If you are ever thinking 🤔 of a crazy idea around solar or a more sublime install. He is the one.


Add as promised. Take the shuttle in Glacier National Park. Park at the Lake McDonald Lodge. 2 chargers at the guard shack. Free. I watched 4 or 5 Tesla's circle Logan Pass parking lot for for like 30 min. Charge and enjoy stress free drive to ones destination within the park.
