For some reason, it is very difficult to find instructional videos on solar power that are straightforward, concise, and easy to understand. Too many solar enthusiasts attempt to leap into the technical aspects of the science itself, and then, they lose half their audience. This is unnecessary. When teaching anything, START WITH THE BASICS. What parts do you need? How do they fit together? How much are they going to cost? Where can you get them? Simple.
The creator of the video below does a fantastic job of outlining the first steps in affordable survival solar. There is absolutely NO EXCUSE for a prepper to not have at least some form of solar capacity. Anyone, no matter how broke, or how mechanically hopeless, can afford to purchase these items and can understand how to use them. The ability to generate electricity off grid could be a lifesaver. It would be foolish to put off this very important preparation.
