Why cant i ?
I live in Southern Colorado. Curious for your thoughts. I'm beginning to set up a small solar system for my off-grid cabin. Its my 500 sf dream home. My question is; If I only use a small amount of power from my batteries because my load isn't big (ceiling fan, laptop, small stereo, couple of small light) and my system to-be will only be used on weekends.Why can't I use traditional 12volt car batteries. My panel will be 180 Watt, a morningstar or rogue mppt CC, a morningstar sursine300 inverter(run into my AC breaker box). Seems deep cycle batteries are useful if your drainig your system regularly. With the tons of sun and the limited use I figure I can most likely keep the battery bank topped off most of the time. Am I fooling myself? (I'm thick skinned... gimme the truth) Thanks
