From what started off as a lecture to my daughter for taking too long in the shower and the ever increasing cost of power, her rebuttal was that she that she will fix the problem by getting some free power.
This led to another discussion as to where the free power was to come from and it was decided we would begin with a small solar project.
A quick sift over AliExpress found a few items but nothing that a Dad and daughter could easily knock together. I was thinking something like a light with a panel and battery.
I went overboard and started putting a 30A MPPT charge controller and 350W panel together but, at over 100USD per panel its getting outta hand fast.
Anyone have ideas for easy sourced kits or similar. I would like to explore solar a bit further and see what I can work up to but would like to start with something a bit easier (cheaper).
