@substack yeah, I followed spider-farm when you were on scuttlebutt. I'm 100% offgrid too, and my house uses around 1/10th the US average energy.
But there's alternative and then there's mass market, like it or not, so I am excited when I see indications the mass market is making any kind of improvement.
@substack a fridge plugged into an IQ8 with a single 300w solar panel should be able to keep food cold on sunny days.
Fill the freezer with water for thermal mass and it will probably keep sufficiently cool overight with no power.
Add 2 more solar panels and IQ8's and it will run on cloudy days too.
That's a much simplified version of my offgrid fridge0.branchable.com needing none of its special components of software.
@substack I think we'll see increasingly products quietly designed for this.
A lot of it will be in home battery storage, which is already taking off and is needed to deal with the duck curve problem too.
