Over the next few pages we will build up a more and more complex system and try to explain things as we go. We will start with the panel and battery. Then we will add some items to look after our system, monitoring and maintaining it. By then it should be ready for you to use DC power. After that we will go through inverters so that you can use AC power too. In the end, if you want to have a full system, it should look something like this.
Now lets get started on the next page for the first steps, the Battery and panel.
