Solar PV array in front of off the grid house IMG_9764
I visited my niece's off-the-grid house located in bushland north of Orange, NSW. 14 solar PV panels provide power to a battery storage system. The windmill that pumps bore water can also be switched to generate power for the system. House is passive solar design with a composting toilet and beautiful views down the valley. But with bush all around, they will need a bushfire emergency plan.
