Extra Power

Since we are living “off grid,” we aren’t able to send extra electricity we generate to the electric utility. So, what do we do with extra power? Right now, we are able to run an air conditioner, dehumidifier, and several other appliances when the sun is shining. I’m planning on adding a DC water heating element to my hot water tank so that when the batteries are full, the extra power will be stored as hot water, thus reducing the use of propane for the tankless hot water heater.

What are you doing with your extra power?
