DIY Off Grid Solar: System Overview and Powering Up (Part 5)

We are building an off-grid solar clean energy system from scratch. In this video, we cover the main power center, including the MagnaSine Inverter/Charger and Dual MidNite Solar Classic 150 Charge Controllers. We show you how our system is wired, backup systems, and take you through the power-up sequence. This is Part 5 of a series on building a DIY off grid solar energy system.
