We build a portable solar panel generator trailer for our homestead. Here is a STEP by STEP build outline for this project: https://www.instructables.com/id/DIY-Portable-Solar-Panel-Generator-Trailer/
We’ve worked on many projects on our 20 acre homestead. From our greenhouse build to our wall tent, dog kennel and even ice skating rink- they all need power! For this reason we decided to build a portable solar panel setup on a trailer that we can move around and use on our homestead as needed.
The items below can be customized for example if you want more power you could purchase a larger inverter. If you want longer lasting batteries you could buy higher amp hour batteries, etc:
2×6 lumber, 5/8 plywood for cover, 2×4 lumber for mounting
