There are 2 types of solar setups

  1. On the Grid
  2. Off the Grid

Great if you have the money.
But if the power goes out so are you also without power.

The off the Grid

Requires you to have: Batteries, a Battery Container (to house your Batteries),  Cables, Cable connectors,  Charge controllers (to regulate the incoming of electricity)   Inverters (to change the incoming DC to AC electricity) Fuses Solar Pannels

The system could be a 12volt 0r a 24 volt depending on your need.
If you would like to start a off grid system the best thing would be to start with a whole setup of a 12 volt system available @
