Solar Powered Tiny House

March 24, 2014

Powered by a 2.4kw Antaris solar kit. 3 panels sitting snugly on the roof will charge the 6 batteries throughout the day. When fully charged, holds enough power to boil a kettle for an hour continuously. The lighting inside the Tiny House is a mix of 2watt and 10watt LED’s which will hardly touch the battery storage if used when needed. – See more at: http://www.tinyhouseuk.co.uk/2/post/2014/03/our-first-solar-powered-tiny-house.html#sthash.HtJgKX8q.dpuf

A fully off grid tiny house on wheels built and shared by Tiny House UK. More info. here.

    Really nice! I love solar, but I also love the way you did the ladder, not just the offset treads, but its ascent into the loft. Nice!

    I was recommended this blog by my cousin. I’m not sure whether this
    post is written by him as no one else know such detailed about my trouble.
    You are amazing! Thanks!

    Just a bit of clarification – the text says that the solar system is 2.4 KW, but the total wattage of the solar array (as stated in their video) is 750 watts – 3 panels at 250 watts each. I don’t know where the 2.4 KW comes from, but it is stated here, as well as on the original site. However, this would lead one to believe that their solar panels put out 800 watts each…this is not possible, though I’m quite sure the total array size of 750 watts is correct.

    A totally solar TH is my dream come true. Nothing says off-the-grid like saying goodbye to monthly utility milkings.

    live in Florida. The federal government is building a nuclear reactor in Georgia. The states of NC, SC and FL have been conscripted to pay for this 20 billion dollar nightmare. They are getting the money out of us by padding the utility bills; they don’t even bother to read the meters any more; they fired all of the office staff and field workers. And if that isn’t bad enough, to add insult to injury, after this monstrosity is finished being built, the government is going to give it as a free gift to the private sector, who will then turn around and charge us full fare for a cheaper energy, thereby increasing their profits while we live with the threat of another Fukushima. And people wonder why we want our homes to be mobile! I hope that people in the THM will put a lot of effort into getting all TH’s completely solar, just like they went from shingles to metal roofs; a very smart move.

    Another thing I’d like to see is water collection systems installed in each TH, like dehumidifiers that produce water so we don’t have to be constantly looking for water hookups; more off the grid. If we have solar energy we can power our dehumidifiers which can produce all the water we need for washing (I don’t suggest this for drinking water unless some kind of filtration system is added.) LOVE SOLAR EVERYTHING. Thanks for sharing!!!

    […] lest you think this look is only for grand estates, this house from Tiny House Swoon shows that even tiny homes can adopt elements reminiscent of the period. The high peaked ceiling […]
