Plan Your Power: Usage Tips for Tiny Homes
- Put the same amount of thought that goes into designing your tiny house into how to power it. Plan on running a few small things like lights to get you through the evenings. During the daytime, power is ample while the sun is out.
- Stay tuned to your local weather to plan ahead, especially for winter or inclement weather. There will be times when it rains for several days, and if you see that coming, pare back your power usage as you will need to rely on batteries. Or, plan on getting a generator to top off the batteries if that works better for your lifestyle. Most of the time, one clear day will help you get through cloudy periods and in the summer, you will have more power than you know what to do with.
Think You Need More Power?
Consider purchasing our GridFree Bach Kit if you’re a power user during the day and night, and have space for the 2 extra batteries in the Bach Kit. If space and weight is an issue, but you need more power, the Bach Kit with Lithium batteries offers plenty of power with a smaller footprint.
But if you’re more of a power user during the day than at night, or you’re just looking to power a few lights and smaller appliances, the Tiny House Kit is a great option for you, with more solar power than our Weekend Warrior Kit, maximising roof space with minimal footprint inside.
Too Much Power?
Consider our Weekend Warrior Kit, which comes with only 2 solar panels but the same storage - perfect for lower power usage, or somewhere you won’t be everyday.
