Guide on Solar Pricing
We get so many people contacting us wanting to include solar power to their Tiny House Plans. There are a myriad of options when it comes to going off grid. We have a couple of companies we can recommend to you with regards to solar power. Please contact us to discuss in more detail if you are looking to go down this route. As a guide, to go completely off grid, you are looking at anywhere between $20,000 – $30,000. Batteries are still quite expensive at the moment so if you do have the option of utilising the grid (therefore not requiring batteries as back up) during those low sunlight days then this would be our recommendation until the battery prices come down. You could also look at using a generator as a back up option too. While it does depend on the make up of your household, the appliances you use, your power usage and where your Tiny House is sited, you can expect to pay anywhere between $10,000 – $30,000 for your solar power needs. Something to factor in when you are planning your Tiny House.
We also recommend Waterless Composting Toilets for all your waste management and water tank needs. This is another area where there are so many options and so much to learn about. These guys know their stuff and are extremely helpful.
