Perfect,It’s 24’x24’x10’ with a 6’ porch. The doors are 8’x9’ and 12’x9’. I would have liked to have gone 24’x32’ but there’s a perimeter drain for my septic system about 6’-8’ out from the doors. I hooked up a 200W solar setup with 12V lights and to run an inverter for 120v power. My other Morton building is visible in the background. View attachment 80813 View attachment 80814
Yes. I don’t do much work in there. I just need enough power to run the lights, a fan on the porch, and to occasionally run my pancake compressor to air up tires. I’ve also used it to run a battery charger. When I was building the patio, I used a 7 Amp angle grinder to cut the curve on the blocks. It ran for about 1-1/2 to 2 hrs before the battery (deep cycle marine) ran down enough to shut the inverter down due to low voltage. Additional batteries would have obviously extended the run time.BX is that all you use to power that building ?
Feel free to ask questions and I’ll try to answer them. I don’t claim to be even close to an expert when it comes to solar power. I knew basically nothing about it before this project. I just did a lot of research online and talked with a coworker who knows about solar.Perfect,
I didn't mention it, but I am planning a stand alone solar setup for my building as well. Might pick your brain there a bit. Concurrently we are having a 16kWh setup installed for the house but I don't want to deal with additional trenching etc for this building so I will do stand alone with a battery.
I'm thinking through the largest draw I would put on that system and I think I might need it to be able to run a medium sized compressor for tires etc.
