We are making a huge change to our off grid solar power system. Our current system is no longer going to work for us due to our upgraded system bringing in 3 times the amount of power we originally were. This means we need to take all of our solar components down and rebuild our entire system.

We are a couple who are building our own home from the ground up in the mountains of West Virginia. After living near the city our entire lives we finally decided to sell it all, pack up our 3 kids and live in an RV on our 73 acres while we building our own debt free, off-grid house and learning to live a more self-reliant life.
Our house build is documented entirely on our main channel "Wild Wonderful Off-Grid" and our family life vlogs can be found on our secondary channel "Wild Wonderful After Show"

    • *The Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021 signed December 27, 2020, provided a two-year extension of the Investment Tax Credit for solar. I thought of you 2 when I seen this, might help a little.

    • Definitely would love more details on the expansion. Is there a reason why you went with multiple charge controllers rather than replacing your current charge controller with one large one?

  • You are a great inspiration. You are so driven and resolute and yet you do everything so cheerfully. Your children are growing up with great memories imprinted in their minds. I can only compare you to Gridlessness channel in Canada. Just a quick question for you seeing that you are a very knowledgeable electrician. Is there a particular reason why you chose Simpliphi batteries over Discover AES 7.2KWh?

    • In the video we tall about how the set up does not work because we are adding 20 new panels that will result in us bringing in 3x the power. So the entire set up needs to be reconfigured with added components and a new layout. Everything in the power house had to come down

Our Rumble name is the same as our name here but that platform doesn't use spaces- wildwonderfuloffgrid So far we only have the very first 5 or 6 but we will be steadily uploading all of our content there and once we are caught up to "today" we will begin uploading our new content. We hope to see you over there! Thanks for supporting our channel here on YT while you were on the platform 😊

  • Обращение Создателя.. 12.01.2021 Катрен “Спасёт Русь только Создатель” Никто не сможет освободить Россию! Воевать придётся с системой! С системой может воевать только Мессия, Нет на Свете ничего по этой теме! Только система имеет власть! Система подавила всё население! Где-то в глубине Души кипят страсти! Не видно серьёзного сопротивления! Чтобы изменить Русь - нужна сила! Или, по-другому, нужна другая система! Система за тридцать лет людей смирила, Прямое восстание - это не тема! Путь революции уже не получится! Оппозиция - слабое сегодня звено! Чудо тоже не может случиться, Кровь внутри - это прокисшее давно вино! Оппозиция говорит много, но нет силы! Нет силы и нет возможности! Оппозиция хочет власти, но в Идее бессильна! Люди не поддержат, есть сложности! Людям не стоит надеяться на победу! Оппозиция слаба, больше пустых слов! В стране наступила большая беда! Или ночь очень страшных снов! В самой оппозиции нет единства! Все фамилии легко перечесть! Каждый мечтает лидером быть Отечества, Не объясняя людям, о чём идёт речь! Надеются победить на злобе! На злобе людей к богатым! Забыли, что надо готовить ещё в утробе, Что надо стоять за Дух, а не хату! Сегодня страна и люди - совсем другое! 13 миллионов легли за Свободу! Нельзя сказать, что поколение сегодня иное, Но не хотят перейти реку без брода! За тридцать лет приспособились! Смирились, как в тридцать седьмом! Рабами в Духе уподобились, У многих в Душе полный разлом! Не верьте никаким демократам! Продадут Родину за пятак! Они пообещать всё, что угодно рады, Подписать, что требует власть - пустяк! Посмотрите, как от них смердит! Смердит предательством и ложью! Выхода люди из рабства не видят, Противоположную силу создать сложно! На Руси, как всегда, две силы: Народ и система! Демократов выбросите из головы! Свобода - это народная тема, Ему решать: сломаться или идти на Вы! Спасёт Русь только Создатель! Нет Ему никаких альтернатив! Для Руси, Он единственный в Мире Спаситель! Без Бога нет никаких перспектив! Народ должен услышать Бога! Он должен попросить Создателя! Без этого не будет никакого итога, Поверьте, оппозиция - это Народа предатели! Ничего не изменится в этом Мире! Религии первыми предали свою паству! Только один Создатель будет отныне, Создавать Белое Братство! Повторяю, никто не спасёт Россию! Есть - система и есть - Народ! Бог подготовил для России Мессию, Он должен сплотить Русский Народ! Не надейтесь на систему и оппозицию! По существу - это одно и то же! Напоминаю, 800 лет инквизиции, Всё повториться может! Спасение, повторяю, лишь в Боге! Бог заинтересован в Совершенстве России! Шестая Эпоха - это Руси итоги, Бог силы Свои вложил в Мессию! Аминь. Отец Абсолют. 12.01.2021 .....,.
