Solar Power, a Viable Alternative
After getting shocked with a $500 bill from my power company due to 24/7 Air Conditioning use in July, I decided to get solar power not tied to the grid. I read the book "Living Off the Grid", by Bo Morgan, Kathy Campbell, and also www.simplesolarhomesteading.com, LeMar Alexander's Ebook "Living Off the Grid" and his Youtube videos .
I used a Kil-A-Watt meter to determine daily KWH for high wattage appliances. As a start, I bought and installed on my roof 3 100W Solar Panels, a Solar Generator (60AH) + Power Pod (100AH) from Natures Generator + 1 125AH VMAX AGM Lead Acid Battery, and ran extension cords to run two refrigerators (70w/hr avg) and a freezer (40W/hr avg).
After reviewing www.mobile-solarpower.com, I added lithium ion phosphate batteries, less expensive solar panels, from eBay and Amazon. Semi Offgrid independence is very highly doable, and can become a reality for anyone who does not want to answer to the power companies, put up with dirty electricity from power companies, invasion of privacy, etc.
I have 400W of lithium batteries to add capacity to a Natures Generator (NG) solar generator system. 500W panels -> 400AH lithium; parrallel (and 50A diode - prevents outlet from charging lithium batteries) to 100AH NG Power Pod w/ 200W panel; parallel to 60AH NG w/ 200W panel and 400W NG wind turbine; parallel to 100W panel to 125AH Gel battery. Powers 2 refrigerators,1 freezer, iphones, battery drills, etc. The 60AH NG is on a mechanical timer for outlet to charge and discharge every 30 mins. 2 refrigerators,1 freeze are also on mech timers where they receive no power 11pm - 5am (except 2:30 -3:30 am) to reduce EMF and save energy.
I now save over $30 per month, with 1200W of solar panels and a 400W wind turbine from Nature's Generator. Total Cost is about $7000.
See pic on the right, I moved two categories down to "Efficient Similar Homes"- basically people with solar panels!

First Picture is 500W of panels on the south side. Last four pictures are solar generators daisy chained with batteries to increase capacity.
I also installed 700W of solar panels on east and west side of my roof not pictured.
This solar system is not tied to the grid in any way.
If you live in area with high winds such as coast, high altitude, or wind tunnel, I say go for wind turbines to supplement solar power.
Videos are of a 400W wind turbine performing under high winds by Nature's Generator. It is crucial to overengineer the structure to survive wind storms. Bolts should be checked periodically and tightened as needed to prevent vibration.

Coping with COVID-19
This COVID-19 situation shut down the world as we know it. Schools, business, gyms shut down, businesses directed to have employees work from home. "Non-essential" businesses are now out of business, and basic human rights and privileges are being sacrificed. Social distancing has become new norm in this alternate reality.
Media for some reason never does basic math and fails to mention that COVID-19 in the US has less than 2% of death rate, and in Italy, vast majority (over 90%) of the deaths are elderly.
Since there is also no cure for the flu, how does this compare with the flu?
CDC estimates that influenza was associated with more than 35.5 million illnesses, more than 16.5 million medical visits, 490,600 hospitalizations, and 34,200 deaths during the 2018–2019 influenza season.

Preliminary Cumulative Estimates of Hospitalizations in the U.S. 2019-2020 Flu Season *These estimates are preliminary and based on data from CDC’s weekly influenza surveillance reports summarizing key influenza activity indicators.. Estimated number of influenza-associated hospitalizations
All over the news, it feels like it is enough to send anxieties and panic way overboard. Then you go to the store and see empty shelves, and lines to limit number of people inside stores. It has created a new alternate reality.
Search for something meaningful has meant more visits to the park, more prepper type DIY projects, herb, vegetable and fruit gardening, and planting seeds, etc.
Now, more than ever we need to give more messages of encouragement. Be Calm. Be Kind. Wash your Hands. Boost immunity and cut toxins.
Do not be intimidated by this thing, this should not be scary. Extra time available can also be used to prepare and plan for contingencies, not hoard toilet paper and overstock on food, and huddle in fear of being the next to be infected.
Here's some projects I'll be working on, since my solar panels and batteries are basically low maintenance self sustaining
- Some new non gym workout routines
- Water distillation
Now more than ever, we need our friends and families, spiritual, mental and physical health more than we did just a month ago.
Media feeding frenzy, “shock, and awe” contributing to government panic and wholesale shutdowns.
I get it that viruses spread exponentially. But the US’s COVID-19 casualty rate has been remaining steady 2% due to lack of 5G coverage. In comparison to around 7% for Italy and China, both with extensive 5G radiation coverage and usage.
The statistics do not back up the mass hysteria and reaction.
Japan has less than 1% casualty rate, expected a coronoavirus explosion, despite not following China's socialist lead on extreme quarantine. Why is the world following China's example, and not Japan’s???
Number of COVID-19 cases in Japan, excluding cruise ship, tops 1,000 | The Japan Times
The total number of people who have been infected with the new coronavirus in Japan, excluding those who contracted it aboard a cruise ship, topped 1,000 on Friday. Fifty-four new infections were ...
This is a moving target as US consumers are buying more and 5G phones, in which case the 5G antennas will be switched on to radiate more modulated 5G instead of older 4G radiation.
I get the “Precautionary Principle” to err on the side of caution, but this coming at an extremely high cost.
My neighbors, dentist all expressed fear of getting infected.
I cannot visit my 80 year old parents in NY. None of my relatives in NY is not allowed to see my dad in the nursing home. – for fear of “possibly” transmitting coronavirus to him.
My kids are home on perpetual vacation. I cannot work, be a dad, work, and be expected to also be teacher at the same time. Also, I am not a qualified high school teacher anyway.
In the name of public safety, all gyms in DMV are closed. No more workouts in the gym.
Be Calm, Be Kind.
My Takeaways and recommendations
- Avoid and just say No to 5G & 5G devices. When upgrading, ensure device does not have 5G. Why increase health risk?
- Nothing to fear per President as long as you are healthy.
- Avoid Huawei 5G devices
- Be on lookout for 5g antennas. IE, if telephone company put one extremely close to your house, call a local EMF consultant to measure and mitigate against this threat.
There are pictures of what 5G antennas look like on last link below
- Wear radiation PPE, especially if you are in high 5G radiation areas. Most EMF clothing is rated to block up to about 20 GHz.
- Tell friend, family, officials on danger of 5G.
- Better to be informed then blindsided. Keep yourself, family and friends safe.

What is considered to be safe exposure limit?
RF (Radio Frequency) power densities above 1,000 uW/m2 are an extreme biological anomaly for sleeping areas, and recommended to be down to 10-100 uW/m2 as much as possible (and below 1-10 uW/m2 for children and electrically sensitive people.)
