If you have wondered how we have power for the laptop I use for this blog, this should answer your questions. We have a block of solar panels that generate enough power to keep our cell phone, laptop, park radio, meat slicer, and other electronics charged. The solar panels track with the sun. It then sends the energy to a couple of gel batteries which holds the power. We charge all of our electronics off of the batteries. We also have a system for our water pump, incinerator, and our wood shed. The wood shed system allows us to use power tools for all of our building projects. Sorry to say, we are not as rustic as people might think we are. Thanks to the sun, we have a few luxuries.
