Check out our Off Grid Solar Basics course!

Can you run an air conditioner on an off grid solar setup? It’s not impossible as some may think. Requires a well designed and sized system.

  1. Awesome system and information; thanks for posting. One small bit of advise; I noticed your water heater Temerature and Pressure (T&P) releif valve is not piped off but open to the room where you have your power components. Just a suggestion but if that water heater overheats all that water will come out of it with significant force. All of those electrical components will be exposed to quite a bit of water. Hope this helps.

  2. const int led = 6;

    void setup() {

    pinMode(led, OUTPUT);


    void loop() {

    for(int i, i<255, i++) {



  3. I have a friend who has a huge house. He has a cooling unit for both upstairs and downstairs. The house is all electric as well. He is tied in to the local electric co. Most of the time, the power co ends up owing him because his setup is so efficient. It absolutely can be done.

  4. I could save a lot in electric bills if I just not run my 11000 btu ac on the grid. How much for a solar setup just for a dedicated line to the ac???

  5. I hope you are using the BMS in each Tesla battery module where you can automatically disconnect the battery pack & that you're not using a traditional solar charge controller. If you can't affirm to both of these statements contact me immediately or visit EVTV episodes about selfish solar for safe off grid solar with Tesla battery modules. In particular watch the episode titled "EVTV Friday Show – June 16, 2017. Taming the Tesla Model S Battery Module": The main part of interest to you will be starting at about 57 minutes into the show, which discusses how to safely use Tesla battery modules without a fire. Or just contact me.
