Let me start
off by saying we (my family and I) live completely, 100% “off of the grid and
are completely self sufficient”

chimney, solar AC, solar heating, solar water heating (pool and home), solar
stove, solar power, wind power, hydrogen powered back up generator, hydrogen
back up water heater, hydrogen stove, 2 hydrogen powered trucks, 1 EV (electric
vehicle) and satellite internet.

Here’s a DIY step by step process, taken from a guide I offer
at www agua-luna com it’s complete but if you’d like the more specific process
or the pics and images go to www agua-luna com. Its pretty simple but if you
have any problems feel free to contact me directly I can walk you threw the

www agua-luna com

“STEP 1.
SOLAR PANELS: or PV panels are the key to a hybrid system., converting the sun’s
beams into electricity that we can use in the home. They come in many different
sizes, shapes, power ranges and costs. We will focus on a 12v 50watt (4amp)
panel, measuring appx 4 sq. ft. with a price range from $300-$500.

“Retrieve a
typical winter electric bill. You won’t need a summer bill, because by building
a system that runs in winter, it’ll be proven for summer use where days are
longer. Divide the total KWH (Kilowatt Hours) on the bill by 30 (giving you your
Kilowatt Hour per day, or KWH/d consumption amount), now divide that by 10 (or
the total average winter day hours in your area)(giving you KWH/h), now multiple
that by 1000 (converting KWH/h to WH/h or watts).”

“Now that we
know how many watts your systems requires, we need to know how many panels to
use, along with an adequate- sized controller. For simplicity reasons, let’s use
a typical 50w solar panel. We will divide your final “system requirement”
results from above by 50 to tell us how many panels you’ll need (hourly winter
consumption watts / 50).”

“NOTE: Size
(watts and feet) of panels is a personal choice and isn’t determined by any
system requirements.

Mount panel/s
flat (0 degree) facing south (if located in the north hemisphere). With a
multimeter, measure the incoming amps (via pos cable to battery), slowly raise
the top edge until the amps peak on your meter. Secure.”

Materials you will need

A sheet of copper flashing from the hardware store. This normally costs about
$5.00 per square foot. We will need about half a square foot.

Two alligator clip leads.

A sensitive micro-ammeter that can read currents between 10 and 50 microamperes.
Radio Shack sells small LCD multimeters that will do, but I used a small surplus
meter with a needle.

An electric stove. My kitchen stove is gas, so I bought a small one-burner
electric hotplate for about $25. The little 700 watt burners probably won’t work
— mine is 1100 watts, so the burner gets red hot.

A large clear plastic bottle off of which you can cut the top. I used a 2 liter
spring water bottle. A large mouth glass jar will also work.

Table salt. We will want a couple tablespoons of salt.

Tap water.

Sand paper or a wire brush on an electric drill.

Sheet metal shears for cutting the copper sheet.

The first step is to
cut a piece of the copper sheeting that is about the size of the burner on the
stove. Wash your hands so they don’t have any grease or oil on them. Then wash
the copper sheet with soap or cleanser to get any oil or grease off of it. Use
the sandpaper or wire brush to thoroughly clean the copper sheeting, so that any
sulphide or other light corrosion is removed.

Next, place the cleaned and dried copper sheet on the burner and turn the burner
to its highest setting.

As the copper starts to heat up, you will see beautiful oxidation patterns begin
to form.
Oranges, purples, and reds will cover the copper.

As the copper gets hotter, the colors are replaced with a black coating of
cupric oxide. This is not the oxide we want, but it will flake off later,
showing the reds, oranges, pinks, and purples of the cuprous oxide layer

The last bits of color disappear as the burner starts to glow red.

When the burner is glowing red-hot, the sheet of copper will be coated with a
black cupric oxide coat. Let it cook for a half an hour, so the black coating
will be thick. This is important, since a thick coating will flake off nicely,
while a thin coat will stay stuck to the copper.

After the half hour of cooking, turn off the burner. Leave the hot copper on the
burner to cool slowly. If you cool it too quickly, the black oxide will stay
stuck to the copper.

As the copper cools, it shrinks. The black cupric oxide also shrinks. But they
shrink at different rates, which makes the black cupric oxide flake off.

The little black flakes pop off the copper with enough force to make them fly a
few inches. This means a little more cleaning effort around the stove, but it is
fun to watch.

When the copper has cooled to room temperature (this takes about 20 minutes),
most of the black oxide will be gone. A light scrubbing with your hands under
running water will remove most of the small bits. Resist the temptation to
remove all of the black spots by hard scrubbing or by flexing the soft copper.
This might damage the delicate red cuprous oxide layer we need to make to solar
cell work.

Cut another sheet of copper about the same size as the first one. Bend both
pieces gently, so they will fit into the plastic bottle or jar without touching
one another. The cuprous oxide coating that was facing up on the burner is
usually the best side to face outwards in the jar, because it has the smoothest,
cleanest surface.

Attach the two alligator clip leads, one to the new copper plate, and one to the
cuprous oxide coated plate. Connect the lead from the clean copper plate to the
positive terminal of the meter. Connect the lead from the cuprous oxide plate to
the negative terminal of the meter.

Now mix a couple tablespoons of salt into some hot tap water. Stir the saltwater
until all the salt is dissolved. Then carefully pour the saltwater into the jar,
being careful not to get the clip leads wet. The saltwater should not completely
cover the plates — you should leave about an inch of plate above the water, so
you can move the solar cell around without getting the clip leads wet.

now place in the sun with the magnefied on top.

The solar cell is a battery, even in the dark, and will usually show a few
microamps of current.

That’s it it’s that simple. If you’d a more detailed process and some pics
(ouldn’t put them here) it’s available along with some other DIY alternative
energy projects at

There are
several tricks to building the same size system without buying the most
expensive components. Here are a few:

Do not buy for brand names, buy
for price. 50 watts is 50 watts.

Purchase small panels. 3-15w
panels can cost ¼ less than one 45w.

Contact your highway dept. or dept. of motor vehicle (DMV) and ask for panels
off of their retired/nonworking “highway construction carts.” These panels
usually only operate at 50% efficiency or less, but in most cases are completely
FREE or cost just a couple bucks. You may also want to subscribe to
http://www.freecycle.org. All items
are given away for FREE there all the time, no strings attached.

your Dept of Energy and Resources, you may qualify for tax breaks and/or
refunds. For more info visit http://www.dsireusa.org.

several small inverters separated by rooms–one inverter for the kitchen,
etc. This way if one inverter breaks, the whole house isn’t without power, just
that room. (Keep a spare controller/parts).

To save your inverter from
operating continuously, run some appliances on DC electricity (refrigerator,
water heater, etc.) Many appliances now come in 12v DC and use far less energy
then 110v. (If you’re switching over from gas, I’d suggest going straight to

When purchasing parts, supplies
or system components, ask first about any “display” or “damaged” items. In most
cases they are discounted up to 90% off because of a few scratches and/or dings.

Buy used.
Look at http://www.suntrekenergy.com, http://www.oasismt.com,
http://www.craigslist.org or http://www.ebay.com where you may
find “like new” used items, at 1/10th of their original cost.

Sell your
excess energy back to the power company. Ask your power company about “net
metering” or go to http://www.eere.energy.gov
or http://www.serconline.org
for tables and state law information.

Check out
these books and magazines for more information on
living off the grid: “Photovaltaics”,
“Create an oasis greywater”, “Motherearthnews” and
my book coming out this summer.

If you
have questions, email me
for FREE online consultation.

Hope this helped, feel free to contact me personally if you
have any questions if you’d like assistance in making your first self sufficient
steps, I’m willing to walk you step by step threw the process. I’ve written
several how-to DIY guides available at www agua-luna com on the subject. I also
offer online and on-site workshops, seminars and internships to help others help

    At the top of this page, you have the phrase “Stop Global Warming.” Man is NOT responsible for Global Warming, and if we ceased – at this very moment – using EVERY SINGLE thing that supposedly causes Global Warming, it wouldn’t cause a DENT in the so-called problem. IF there is “Global Warming,” you’ll need to contact God, because it’s the Son that’s primarily responsible for the heating of the Earth; secondly, look at the present situation with the Earth and the volcanic eruptions. THOSE are THE primary responsible causes of Global Warming.

    i am inquireing about solarpanels is there some kind of grant that i can get to help on converting my home to solar panels this is something i have wanted to do for many years. where i live there isnt any kind of need for it here or other wise there would be places selling them but i do not let that disgurage me for wanting clean energy..

      Hello Jamie,

      That’s the problem, in places where “solar” is not a real need, then the demand is too low and the prices don’t get competitive. In places where is either solar or nothing you will find better deals. I do not know about any grand, however I do know that you can get tax rebates when you install any alternative energy on your home. In the other hand, you can start with a small system for around $150 dlls. Is a good way to learn and then you just up size your systems depending on your needs or your resources ($$$$$). Check out our guide at http://www.agua-luna.com called “$130 dlls Solar System”

      Hi Peter,

      We do not have providers for buying solar panels, sorry about that, but it is easy to find them on the internet. If you need assistance installing them please refer to our book “Living off the grid” where it shows exactly how to install them, how to connect them to a battery bank and even how to add a wind generator to your system.

    • 15. agua-luna.com  |  November 11, 2010 at 8:46 pm

      Hello Todd,

      There is a lot you can do. You can start small and as the money come you can expand your system. I recommend you the information on our book named “How to make a cheap solar system”. You will start understanding solar with very little investment (around 200 dlls) and go big as you want or can. It’s easy that way as you start immediately saving money on your electric bill and have more to invest on your solar system.

      Other thing you can do , is installing a solar water heater, you can build one your self for very cheap. You can find the instructions on our guide DIY Solar Water Heater. Now that winter is close, you can install a back up solar water heater and save hundreds.

      And the most important thing you can do is, DO NOT give up, and DO NOT let other people tell you that is expensive or impossible.

      Good luck.

    I have a wolf rescue I was forced to have to move to an off-grid area where I am forced to run my well for water and all electrical components on a 15000 watt Onan Generator that operates solely on propane that is costing us alot. Most days per month we do without electricity and water because running a generator through propane is more than we can afford so is buying solar. we know of no resources to help. (661) 674-6150 or 24801 Bobtail Lane PO Box 98 Rosamond, CA 93560. I need immediate solar help. what can I do. Please help me

    • 18. agua-luna.com  |  November 11, 2010 at 8:53 pm

      Hello Charles,

      I understand perfectly being in that situation, my self living on a desert area on a cab over camper, no running water, no electricity. We started with a 60 watt solar panels, 4 batteries , and a cheap gasoline generator.

      The best we did was using any money that came to us to upgrade our solar system, little by little. One more panel, one more battery, etc etc.. After 4 months we reduce our generator use and we turn it on only on emergencies.

      Instead running a motor for your well you can catch rain water. Start with some 55 gal drums and a gutter… and upgrades as you can. That will save you a lot on running a water pump. The best you can do is be creative and work with the nature has to give you for free.

      If you want more tips on how to live off the grid saving money on waste, water, electricity I recommend you a lot our book “Live off the grid” . Remember that you don’t have to make a big investment to start living off the grid, as contrary as many will think.
